Sony BDP-S5100

  • Summary: On the other hand, the lack of connectivity can be a concern in some home theater setups, but to address that you will need to step up to at least a mid-range Blu-ray player, such as the Samsung BD-F7500 (Est. $250) . But at the end of the day, for most users, the Sony BDP-S5100 presents a value that's going to be pretty tough to beat.
  • Pros: Excellent Blu-ray and DVD picture quality, Full featured, with 3D, streaming and Wi-Fi, Fast
  • Cons: Stumbles in some esoteric bench tests, User interface could be cleaner

Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Sony didn't go back and reinvent the Blu-ray player with the BDP-S5100. They stuck with their successful formula and have what is a minor upgrade to the BDP-S590 from last year. The new design certainly looks nice, though I do have a couple of reservations about it myself with the top surface and the disc tray. When it came down to performance, the BDP-S5100 does quite a good job overall.

  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.

  • Excerpt: Ud over Netflix og YouTube inkluderer de tilgængelige tjenester også TV 2 Play og Sony Entertainment Network, hvor der er adgang til filmleje og meget andet. Blu-ray-afspilleren har endda indbygget browser og mulighed for at gå på Facebook, dog uden at funktionaliteten er særlig overbevisende.

Test: Sony BDP-S5100 (Blu-ray-Player)

CHIP Online

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Der 3D-Blu-Ray-Player BDP-S5100 von Sony zeigt sich im Test als durchaus brauchbar. Der geringe Stromverbrauch von maximal 5,8 Watt ist sogar ein Highlight. Neben WLAN und Gracenote bietet er zahlreiche Apps, die sich über den Opera-App-Store installieren lassen. Jedoch kann der Player keine DivX-Formate abspielen, Super-Audio-CDs unterstützt er hingegen.
  • Pros: Gracenote, 3D, Sehr gute Bildqualität, WLAN
  • Cons: Kein DivX, Kein analog Audio-Out
