Summary: After reading all the good reviews I decided to purchase this player on amazon,Very disappointed with the purchase. The coil whine from the moment the unit was switched on is enough to give you tinnitus in your ears! The unit sometimes plays my dvds and other times,for no apparent reason decides not to play those same dvds,very irritating machine to use and will be getting recycled into the bin.
Summary: Fantastic blu-ray player which can play DVDs and CDs too. The build quality is excellent and produces really good quality pictures and sound. The unit is sleek and slim so it doesnt overwhelm your stand. Its very quiet when running too as long as you keep the back free from dust and fluff (I vacuum mine every few months). I love Sony products and managed to control this blu-ray player using my TV remote control so theres no mix ups and less clutter.
Summary: I went for this one becsause all the new Sony 3D DVD players are not flat topped. I have a HD DVD player and other settop boxes in a stack and the BluRay player I had was flat topped so needed a flat top player to fit in.
A great product from Sony, flawless in just about every way, like having a cinema in your house!

Excerpt: This is genuinely one of the best purchases I've ever made. I haven't had a huge amount of luck with DVD players in the past - they always seem to break down, or have fuzzy picture quality, or some other problem. When buying this, I was choosing between this one and the BDP - S790, which I was told has better quality, as well as being able to connect to wi-fi, however the S790 was £80 more expensive!
Summary: Bought as already had 3D TV so thought may as well get the set with this being on offer. Easy set up, set everything to auto then all you have to do is disc settings each disc. Good price, but even better than entry level. Shame the 3D ive tried to watch give me headaches though!
