Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray Disc Player

PC Magazine
19 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Sony's least-expensive Blu-ray Disc player isn't a speed demon, but it delivers solid detail and a pleasing viewing experience.
  • Pros: Plays JPEG and MP3 files on DVDs. Supports 24-Hz output with Blu-ray movies. Provides basic picture control settings and presets.
  • Cons: Slow disc load times with some Blu-ray movies. No 24-Hz output with DVD video. No bitstream audio output (HDMI).

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Blu-Ray players have finally reached the sub $500 price point and it comes from Sony. Significant because that means it’s finally less than the Playstation 3 which itself has a Blu-Ray disc player. This player is equipped with full 1080p high definition video playback in 24 frames per second (the same rate as film) for faithful playback of your movies.

Sony Connectivity & Quality: Sony BDP S300 Blu-ray Player

Personal Electronics buzz
29 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Imagine my surprise when I purchased a state of the art Sony HDTV 1080p with Blu-ray capability and the retailer threw in a Sony BDP S300 Blu-ray disc player. Am I a pig in clover? It just shows to go-where there are "scaredy cat" merchants-there are good deals.

Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Player Review

Hardware Secrets
22 December 2007
  • Summary: This is a unit that we would buy for ourselves if it weren’t for the fact that we couldn’t make it region free, because we have a huge DVD collection with movies from regions 1 and 4. If you are going to play only region-free (“region 0”) or region 1 discs then this unit is a great pick, especially because its cost/benefit ratio: great price and excellent image quality for DVDs – if the relative slowness of this unit doesn’t bother you.

Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
12 July 2007
  • Excerpt: While the PS3 remains a top-notch Blu-ray player with video game capability thrown in as an extra feature (do I hear groans from Sony marketing?), there are plenty of us who would rather have a dedicated BD player in the house than a game console. The BDP-S300 is an important product, and gives Blu-ray some much needed traction in the affordable Blu-ray player category.

Review: Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player

Home Theater Blog
13 June 2007
  • Excerpt: A good friend of mine was kind enough to drop by and allow me to check out his new Sony BDP-S300 ($499) Blu-ray player. You know me, check out turned into a five and a half hour review. Sony’s BDP-S300 at $499 has sparked a fair amount of interest among those who have, thus far, remained on the sidelines of the hi-def disc battle.

Sony Blu-ray Player BDP-S300

26 September 2008
  • Summary: I have used this for several weeks, however only around ten days ago did the HDMI cable arrive. Do not try using a Blu Ray player without the HDMI cable as you will hear music, sound effects but no speech when using Composite cables supplied.
