Sony's BDP-S3200 Blu-ray player competent but stale
17 April 2014
Summary: The Sony BDP-S3200 will play your Blu-rays just fine but it doesn't do enough to embrace streaming media like its competitors.
Pros: The Sony BDP-S3200 offers a high number of streaming services and will play most forms of physical disk; DLNA streaming, Miracast and onboard "super" Wi-Fi add to the unit's flexibility; the cost of entry is fairly low.
Cons: The XMB interface is looking tired in the face of streamlined offerings from competitors; accessing your content and navigating long lists of streaming services is very slow; there are some slight image quality hiccups in Blu-ray playback; the player lacks pizzazz compared to streaming rivals.
