  • Summary: I was really excited to get this home and add it to my home theater. I find the menu silly, it is slow to boot movies, the picture thru my Sharp 9000 high def projector is average. I used a samsung upconverting dvd player before which had better sound and just as good a picture as the Blue ray.

  • Excerpt: This is about my 5th Sony product recently, and I am disappointed at what I am getting from them these days. Now, I'm not saying all BDP-S350s are like this but, mine has trouble reading standard DVD movies. Sometimes it doesn't even read the DVD I put in it. Plus, they state a 6 second start up.
  • Pros: Price, 1080i, digital output.
  • Cons: problems reading BD's and standard DVD's.  Sloooooooow loading.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

  • Summary: The Good: Excellent picture quality, loaded with deep blacks and excellent contrast and color richness. Wonderful upscaling of normal DVD's too, the best I have seen, even better than the Oppo. (I have 3 Oppos) Blu-Ray quality is outstanding.

Is Blu-ray better?

  • Summary: I have been using this Blu-ray unit for a few weeks now and am generally happy with it. Nice features and quick loading. But I am really wondering why I bothered to spend the money for the so-called better picture, it now seems like hype to me.

Fine while it lasted

  • Summary: I had no problems at all with this player for two years, but then it developed the often-mentioned inability to read Blu-ray discs. It plays regular DVDs fine. I spoke with tech support and they took me through the steps described in most of the posts here and elsewhere: update firmware, re-boot,...

Slow, no streaming capability

Floyd Sense, Amazon
31 March 2009
  • Summary: I don't know if all Blu-ray brands and players are as slow as this one, but if you think you're just going to pop a DVD into the player and begin watching a movie, think again. It usually takes around 4 minutes before the movie starts, and that's with the player optioned for "quick start".

Good basic device.

  • Summary: Not worth the extra cost. No USB is a big issue if you want to show pictures or video from your computer. Wait for the next generation Blu-Ray players.
  • Pros: Excellent output picture & audio quality. Easy to use. Decent remote.
  • Cons: No USB Input. No single-frame advance.
