decent unit at a decent price

Daniel Wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: Remote control could be better laid out, and the power cable could do with being about 6 inches longer. Unit feels a bit plasticy, but picture quality is excellent for dvds and Blu-ray and the HDMI sound into my amp is a big improvement. Seller very helpfully sent an HDMI connection as well.

Good product shame about the delivery

The Big Orange One, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a good player. Very easy to set up and use. First test was a R1 disc which it played no problem, and then a Blu Ray which would not play on my old player and again no problems. Slim and light with lots of features most of which I haven't tried yet but those i have are easy to navigate to and use. The only problem with the whole experience was the delivery.

Nice Blu-ray player

C, Amazon

  • Summary: The picture and sound are stunning, way out of it's price league. Looks brilliant, great remote, great menu, all typically Sony. My only criticism is that it's quite loud when running and can be slow to read regular DVDs, neither are a big deal for me so i'm very happy with it.

Does what you'd expect.

A. Steel, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: This Sony Blu Ray is the 2nd one i've had, the first one was a S370 which I loved. The main reason for the purchase was price and the ability to play movies over the LAN from my PC. I have only a few Blu Ray movies but the quality is fantastic. The setup of this box was simple and the only thing that lets it down is the inability to stream avi files over the LAN. It'll play them from the USB hard disk but not streaming.

Decent player

S. Badesha "P!ATD", Amazon

  • Summary: Arrived quickly as usual from the free super saver delivery and decided to watch a bluray immediately to test the player, however, as mentioned in other reviews there is a slight annoying sound when the player is in use. Not sure whether the one that I had was damaged but I would definitely recommend to others as the quality is great.

Sony BDPS490 Smart 3D Blue-Ray Player

Peo, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: It fits into my Sony collection very well. My previous Sony Blue Ray player remote and TV remote still all mix and match with this unit. The smart functions and internet connection are mostly good. It would have 5 stars If the BBC I Player function would work.
