Good Basic BluRay player. Firmware update solves many problems

  • Summary: Let's see.... today is Jan 18, 2013... Meaning that this BluRay player is well beyond it's retirement age. While searching for a cheap, basic bluray player, I found this one for $8 in Goodwill today. It even had the original remote! Turned it on, and the Firmware was 3.8.

  • Summary: I have had this player for more than 6 months, except for its slow load time/slow power up problem, this player is excellent. I am truly impressed by this player's picture and sound quality.

Fantastic picture with decent performance

  • Summary: Super Blu Ray video reproduction. Good upconversion for standard DVD's. Via the Sony website I ordered the free firmware update disc and it arrived by mail only a few days later. No problems doing the update to 4.20. Yes, it is slower than a standard DVD player when loading discs. BIG DEAL!

Blu-Ray BDPS300 player

  • Summary: This is a good blu-ray player from Sony. But some blu-ray movies take 2 to 3 min. to load. But it is one of the low cost blu-ray players out there. So get it today!

  • Summary: I guess I am lucky, mine has worked fine. I also got lucky on the price, I bought it here on 2/17 for $350 with free shipping, $70 less than the price today. Not sure I'd pay $420 for it. I have tried about 20 movies, BD and DVD. It has player all but one (a DVD - Clay Pigeons) without problems.

  • Summary: well I went for it and bluray is everything that is advertised and commented about. Let me say that I read all the reviews,good and bad so I was not confident in bluray.I have a Toshiba HD player,with the resent news that its over for HD I had to make my move.Picture is outstanding,slightly better...

1080p is awesome

M. Koverdan, Amazon
3 March 2008
  • Summary: Very happy with it. Makes my 52" Aquos LCD look awesome. VERY slow loading times though. Perhaps this will improve with time. Haven't compared to any other units though. All in all a good unit other than slow boot up and play times. **Update** Player stopped working after an update in April of 2010.

  • Summary: Well the price was great and the quality and sound is extremely exceptional (the full 1080p gives it that extra edge!). Be aware if you plan to use this for your main theater; it is a little picky with the type of media you choose for making your home videos. Test it first.
  • Pros: Beautiful picture!
  • Cons: must be very patient - a little faster after updating the system firmware with the online patch from Sony, but then the front panel stopped working, must use the remote - definitely needs future patch

Both camps will hate this review...

Biker freak, Amazon
21 January 2008
  • Summary: Last year I purchased the Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player (see my review) when my old skool DVD player decided that it didn't want to work any longer. It was great; beautiful picture, fabulous sound and I figured that I was set for a while.
