Nice Blu-ray player

  • 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.

  • 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.

Very good player

Tomasz Gornik "gtom", Amazon

  • Summary: Well done Sony. I was surprise how stylish it was, whith curved bottom corners and brushed look-like top it has a look. Very fast and silent. Loads of on-line services ( Netflix, Lovefilm, YouTube and more). Two USB ports one of them at the back, the thing I really like.

Parental Controls Don't Work

Richard Kane, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: The Blu Ray player itself is great. It recognised my home network easily enough and after a firware update, I was good to go. The quality of the movies I've watched so far is great. Blu Ray discs especially look amazing.

decent unit at a decent price

Daniel Wilson, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

Fantastic 3D blu ray player, just missing wifi

mattlondon "londonmatt", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to an earlier Sony model, and as an all round player it's simply great - awesome video and audio quality and very easy to get setup. Stacked full of features it also still has SACD playback support as found on the earlier models.
