Summary: Comments about Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Disc Player: Nice machine...just sorry I didn't buy one sooner... I have a Hitachi 50" plasma...hooked this bad boy up to it (with S-video cable, mind you) and the picture/sound/experience is absolutely incredible. If you don't get this particular model, please 'just spend the money' and watch! You WILL be pleasantly surprised. I looked at the picture on the TV from about a foot away while playing 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'..
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support, Upgradeable
Summary: Comments about Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Disc Player: I am a videophile and own several blu ray players. This Sony BDP-S50 beats them all. For the price, this is the best blu ray on the market. I got a great deal on this player from PC RUSH.Com. The blu ray images are clear and lifelike with perfect color saturation. Also it upconverts standard dvd's very nicely--Look out Silicon Optix!!!.[...
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support
Pros: I have a PS3 too but this is better on the Blu-ray/upscale side. The material "AVCHD" or BD films catch the precise frame rate. The PS3 played "AVCHD" in 25p fps in 50interlaced. This player gets it right. The sound is better than the PS3.
Pros: Beautiful sleek design, better than Samsung! Extremely quiet with reasonable energy consumption. Recessed USB port (I own a tiny 8GB USB flash drive, it fits perfectly flush with the back of the player).
Cons: No wireless connectivity (would be nice if Sony made this a standard feature for all of their blu-ray players). No support for common dvd-r and cd-r formats i.e. Divx and Mp3
