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.
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.
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support
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.
Summary: Our old DVD player finally gave it up at the same time were finally ready to buy a HD Sony Bravia - after reading the reviews I bought the Sony Blu-Ray to go with it and what a great choice. Hooked it up and no looking back - everything was super easy.
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.
Summary: To tell the truth, I wasn't completely sold on Blu-ray. I'd heard the hype and was interested, but the picture I got out of my standard DVD was plenty good. Man, was I blind! I bought this with permission from K-Mart to return it if I wasn't convinced.
Pros: Excellent picture (sharpness, color and depth) Smooth operation Fast disc loading Simple setup Quiet
Cons: Confusing remote control Needs remote to play
