Excerpt: The Sony BDP-S300 is a good blu-ray player. I cautiously use the word good because there is nothing spectacular about it. Sony’s BDP-S300 pulls off the bare minimum as far as blu-ray players go. Let’s start with the pros. Sony covered most of the essential blu-ray needs.
Excerpt: This Blue Ray DVD player has many great qualities associated with it. The player is easy to use and it enables you to use the DVD player at various picture qualities. I have never had any trouble with Sony products before, so this purchase wasn't a hard decision for me. So far it has been a really realiable High Definition Blue Ray device.
BDP-S300 Absolute Junk - SONY is my new four letter word
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The picture on this Blu-Ray player is beautiful, when it can play a Blu-Ray disc. I never have trouble with regular DVD's, but I can have trouble with my existing Blu-Ray collection. It also is not just newer Blu-rays. I rent 3 discs at a time from Netflix. I can have trouble with a Blu-ray released in 2008, but no trouble with the disc released 1 month ago. At first I thought it was the quality of the rental disc.
Excerpt: First off, we are early adopters which means that we bought a Blu Ray player very early on. There was still a battle among the HD players and Blu Ray players and we took a risk. Thankfully, Blu Ray won and we were happy. On the plus side, this is a Sony product which to me automatically means quality. Generally, it is pretty great. The picture is crisp and clear. It plays most movies and up-converts regular DVD's to increase the picture quality.
Excerpt: The Sony BDP-S300 was an entry-level Blu-ray disc player when it appeared on shelves. It delivers Blu-ray functionality flawlessly and works well with my Sony Bravia TV. However its entry-level hardware takes unnecessarily long to power up . I picked up this player looking for an affordable Blu-ray option, and at the time there were only a couple other options.
Excerpt: The sony bdp s300 dvd blu ray player is a 1080p with dvd upscalling via hdmi. I still have an extensive dvd collection that I use my old dvds for but of course have been switching over to blu ray :). Its pretty easy to use I use the remote , which by the way I wish was backlit but its not too big a deal, seamlessly with the functions. Picture and sound quality are great. They have played every disc I put in them.
Excerpt: My sister purchase a home theather system recently this blue-ray player being one items. let me start by saying its pricie but i have never ever in my entire life seen such a crystal clear picture where the colors are vivid they make you drop your jaw.
Blu ray is the wave of the future and sony is riding high

Excerpt: Sony has really hit the mark with the Blu ray concept. Expect to be using this format long after the Toshiba HDDVD is just a pricey doorstop. Great picture, and Blu was smart enough to formalize double layer before launch. Poor HDDVDs aer worthless when their DL format comes out.
Excerpt: We purchased this Sony BDP-S301(Sam's Club version of the BDP-S300, only difference being the S301 included an HDMI cable) Blu-Ray player fairly early on along with a 40" Sony flat panel HDTV, so as a result, while it has been a very reliable and solid piece of equipment, it does take about a minute to power on and load Blu-ray discs. I think this has improved somewhat with firmware upgrades.
Excerpt: This is one of, if not, the first Blu-Ray players Sony came out with. I always believe that it's not the smartest idea in the world to be an early adopter of technology and this is the perfect product to prove my point. The good qualities of this machine is that it has amazing picture quality. Now for the cons. Unless you upgrade the firmware on the machine, it does not play half the Blu-Ray discs on the market. For a novice, upgrading firmware is a daunting task.
