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!!!.[...

Summary: Until very recently, the conventional wisdom was that the Sony Playstation 3 -- primarily a video game console -- was universally the best option for those looking to get into Blu-Ray discs. Now with the release of the S350, and its late-September price drop, that is no longer the case. Which option is right for you? As of this review (Oct. '08), the PS3, plus the remote which is sold separately, comes to about $420.
Summary: If you're looking for reviews on the Sony BDP-BX1, check out the reviews for the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player . The BX1 is basically the S350 repackaged with a unique part number for Costco (so other retailers don't have to match their low prices). You'll find more than 100 reviews there that should apply to the BX1. I've had the BDP-BX1 for a couple of months now, and I really like it.
Summary: Ok,my HD player of choice was HD DVD. I own about 100 HD DVD disks. These players were far less expensive than Sony Blu Ray. The movies were generally less expensive than Blu Ray. HD DVD had more features, easy to update on line, less expensive...easy choice. The dreaded evil Sony corporation was not going to get my business. When Toshiba pulled their product after the major studios dropped them, I was shocked and annoyed.
Sony BDP-S350 vs. Panasonic DMP-BD30K: DVD Upconversion, etc.
1 April 2009
Summary: I went to Circuit City yesterday to purchase the Panasonic DMP-BD30K Blu-Ray Player. As the salesman showed me where the Blu-Ray players were located in the store I told him I was interested in the DMP-BD30K. His response was that I should consider the new Sony BDP-S350 instead. He claimed that the BDP-S350 had received great reviews and is a better player than the Panasonic DMP-BD30K.
Summary: Would highly recommend IF you can find it. They have been hard to find, but are well worth the search. Nice slim unit that will upgrade your TV picture even without Blu Ray DVDs or the recommended 1080 TV.
Pros: Works great. Picture on my TV with and without DVDs has been upgraded even without a 1080 TV. Consumers was right.
