Update Your Firmware

Kathy Audelo "Kathy", Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this unit that was used as a store demo so it was basically new. The firmware at that time was 2.0. I used it and it seemed slow to load. I updated the firmware to 5.6 and boy did that make a BIG improvement on loading times.

Blu-Ray is the future

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: Blu-ray vs. HD DVD A Blu-Ray disc is better technology. It is better resolution and can hold more information (1080p vs. HD DVD's 1080i. This has the support of more movie studios and more Manufacturers and will become the standard. If you want the A-track of the future buy HD-DVD.

Surpasses HD DVD In Quality

A. Mendez, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: Don't pay attention to most of the other reviews here -- they're written mainly by HD DVD supporters who have no interest in seeing Blu-ray succeed. Fact is, this is a MUCH more solid, reliable and quality product than the el-cheapo Toshiba HD DVD player.

THE BEST HIGH DEF BLU-RAY PLAYER

Robert M. Eastman, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: The BDP-S1 was my first BLU-RAY player, and it is state of the art-superb picture and sound in High Definition. All the major Studios support BLU-RAY, if you want HD MOVIES from DISNEY, FOX, SONY(COLUMBIA),WARNERS,PARMOUNT then you must own a BLU-RAY.

GREAT UNIT

World Traveler, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: I own this unit for about 8 months, it great. With a high def TV great combo to see the Blu-ray movies especially 300, Blackhawk Down and Kindom of Heaven. Sony has updated the firmware twice already so it has kept up with the technology. Updating isbrezze.

They will not make them like this again

J. Aravindhan, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: Pictures do not do it justice.You will have to see Sony's BDP-S1 in the flesh to appreciate the fit and finish.Unfortunately when the market catches on, Blu Ray players will weigh about the same as an average laptop and feel flimsy.Just compare Toshiba's current Hd dvd players to their earlier...

BLU-RAY IS HERE TO STAY!!

Humbi, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: I now own a SONY BDP-S1 Bluray player. It was worth the wait. This is a well built machine, very similar to the TOSHIBA HD-A1 in quality and workmanship (see my review of the TOSHIBA). It has added features such as customized video controls (color, brightness,contrast, hue, etc).

Blu Ray is the Real Deal

Michael L. Sansone, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: I have been wanting to get a Blu Ray player for a while. After looking at the available models I decided to wait for the Sony BDP-S1. I have had good luck with Sony in the past so I figured I would go with what I know. I am really glad I did. The PQ is amazing.

Outstanding, easily the best player on the market

C. Umberger, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: Don't let anyone kid you. Sony developed the technology and clearly makes the best transport and video D to A on the market. I use my Lexicon preamp as decoder and the Sony audio transport does an excellent job as well. The negative reviews of this player were posted by people who never saw it.
