Excerpt: The Sony BDP-S360 is a basic blu-ray player , and comes accordingly with the features or lack of features that you would normally expect from a basic model. This is a great blu-ray player . It produces an excellent picture on almost any LCD television. Having used it on multiple televisions, some more expensive than others, the Sony BDP-S360 showed sharp, crisp images on each via an HDMI hookup.
Excerpt: I bought this player when I found it on sale for $89. For the price this player can't be beat. The picture quality is awesome, the upconverting looks good, and the sound is great too. The menus, setup, and features are very user friendly. The start up times are decent(not fast or slow). It does lack certain features which would be nice, such as the Netflix streaming capability.
Excerpt: I bought the Sony BDP S-360 for around a hundred bucks in the middle of 2010. I was enticed by the device becuase of the low price... seemed like at that time it was on its way out as a tangible model. My interest was based on a desire to have a stand alone blu-ray device for a high definition television in one of our bedrooms. The BDP S-360 is an excellent bluray player and also does a very good job in up-converting standard DVDs.
Summary: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE BDP-S370. We have only had this for a short time and our first blu ray as we have a Sony 36' CRT tv....the last one Sony made which can take up to 1080i as there is no LCD,LED,PLASMA, out there that we like that can show flesh tones or sports content as good as this tv...but some come close...
Pros: I am using the player in conjunction with a Sony TV and sound system. It works great, and BD films are amazing. The player is quiet, and it has an option within the player to check for and install firmware updates.
Cons: No complaints. It does last streaming, but I think that it is overrated anyway because the quality of the streaming UIs on most devices is very poor (compared to Apple TV, Xbox, or a Mac/PC). I got the player for $99.98. A great buy.
Summary: I was looking for a DVD player but none have a Digital Video Optical port for my surround ( they only seem to be on Blue Ray players now). I'm not likely to buy Blue Ray Disks till they compete with DVD price wise but this unit does just fine with my DVDs
Pros: DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support
