  • 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.

  • Summary: The BDP-S300 is an excellent value Blu-ray player, delivering a great feature list for a much more affordable price than most advanced units.
  • Pros: Good value for money, great high-definition playback including 24Hz support
  • Cons: Slightly long lag times with Blu-ray playback and power-up, lack of support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD audio codecs

Sony BDP-S300 review

Stuff.tv

  • Summary: Sony has been selling Blu-ray players for years in Japan, but here in Europe it’s been curiously ambivalent. We’ve seen the BDP-S1E – a very slow and painful to use player – and, of course, the PS3. The new BDP-S300 marks a few steps in the right direction – but only a few. It’s cheaper than the BDP-S1E, and, despite not being as lavishly constructed as its forebear, it’s still nice to look at. Old problems resurface But the old problems haven’t disappeared.

  • Conclusion: Le lecteur Sony BDP-S300 affiche un prix d'environ 400 Euros ce qui n'est pas négligeable. Si on le compare à la PlayStation 3, celle-ci dispose d'une connectique Ethernet (pour le futur BD-Live), d'une prise HDMI 1.3 et elle permet de jouer et de lire les films DivX pour un prix similaire... Reste que la console consomme électriquement nettement plus (près de 300 Watts).
  • Pros: La définition des images HD, Le changement de définition « à la volée », La compatibilité 24p, La finition
  • Cons: La lenteur sur certains médias, Incompatibilité DivX, HDMI 1.2, Le prix élevé

TEST: Sony BDP-S300

  • Summary: Vi digger bildet vi får med S300, Blu-ray filmer vises glitrende og den gjør en god jobb også på din gamle DVD-samling. For oss som i tillegg har et harddisk-kamera fra Sony er muligheten til å spille av videoopptakene i AVCHD-format et stort pluss. Den største svakheten til S300 er etter vår oppfatning fraværet av det nye lydformatet Dolby True HD, og at spilleren er så ualminnelig treg til å laste inn Blu-ray filmer.
  • Pros: Pen å se på, glitrende bilde på Blu-ray, AVCHD og DVD.
  • Cons: Alt for treg lasting av Blu-ray filmer, mangler Dolby True HD og DTS HD Master Audio, spiller ikke SACD. PS3-en virker som et bedre kjøp
