Sony BDP-S480 review: Sony's cheapest 3D Blu-ray player, with Internet video streaming built-in

Good Gear Guide.au
25 October 2011
  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S480 has almost everything you could want in a Blu-ray player. It's reasonably quick to operate and incorporates plenty of video on demand services. Extra features in the form of 3D playback and an iOS/Android controller app justify its small price increase over the BDP-S380. We're still baffled at the lack of Wi-Fi, though.
  • Pros: Plenty of Blu-ray and streaming video features, iOS/Android controller app is good, Low price
  • Cons: Main menu system is slightly slow, Web browsing is poor

  • Excerpt: Sony’s BDP-S570 player was a runaway hit during 2010, hoovering up more awards than the clean-up crew at the BAFTAs – so this closely related follow-up has a lot to live up to. Cosmetically, it’s only marginally different from its forebear. The player is extremely thin with a cute curvy front fascia and a stumpy little remote. The latter doesn’t look particularly natty, but it feels fine in the hand.

Sony BDP-S480: Preiswerter, vernetzter und 3D-fähiger Blu-ray-Player

CNET
15 July 2011
  • Summary: Der von unseren australischen Kollegen getestete BDP-S480 ist ein echtes Schnäppchen und Sonys neues Highlight in der Einsteiger-Klasse der Blu-ray-Player. Er spielt 3D-Blu-rays ab und bietet Zugriff auf Sonys Internetvideo-Portal Bravia sowie den Musik- und Videodienst Qriocity. Wie gut das Gesamtpaket wirklich ist, zeigt unser Test.
  • Pros: iOS- und Android-Apps erlauben Fernsteuerung per Smartphone, unterstützt Media-Streaming, Zugriff auf Sonys Qriocity-Service und Sonys Internetvideo-Portal, kompatibel zu 3D-Blu-rays
  • Cons: träge XrossMediaBar-Menüs, unpraktischer Webbrowser
