Conclusion: All in all, I was quite impressed the BDP-S185 for the money. It's a nice little budget player that would make a great addition to a secondary TV, especially if you're already thinking about adding a streaming media player to said TV. For a price equal to or less than many dedicated streaming media players, the BDP-S185 gives you most of the same big-ticket Web services and adds a good-performing Blu-ray player to boot.
Summary: Blu-ray movies always seem to carry a premium over the normal DVD version, so making the leap means first a new player and then to get the best from it, buying Blu-ray movies, Sony here offer a starter pack of a Blu-ray unit with eight Blu-ray movies.
Excerpt: Sony’s BDP-S185 is an affordable, ridiculously compact Blu-ray player with full ‘net functionality. Just 290mm wide, principally because it uses an outboard power brick, it’s being promoted both as space-saving and energy efficient. This is home theatre for eco warriors on a budget. One thing’s for certain: the BDP-S185 is cute. Also available in silver, this diminutive deck has a slick brushed-aluminium exterior, gently sloping roof, and stubby little remote control.
