Sony BDP-S570

CNET
26 February 2011
  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S570 has all the features of other midrange Blu-ray players, plus future 3D support and best-in-class operational speed, but its streaming-video performance over Wi-Fi is spotty.
  • Pros: Very good Blu-ray image quality; 3D Blu-ray compatible; Netflix, Amazon VOD, Pandora, YouTube, and Slacker media streaming; built-in Wi-Fi; fastest operational speed we've tested; SACD playback; 1GB onboard storage.
  • Cons: Inconsistent streaming-video performance using Wi-Fi; some very minor image quality nitpicks.

  • Excerpt: The Sony BDP-S780 is an impressive 3D Blu-ray player that not only plays great 3D movies such as "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland," but it also streams high-definition content from a wealth of online sources. The picture quality is nearly unmatched by the competition.
  • Pros: Sony includes picture enhancement technology and 2D to 3D conversion features that are unique among 3D Blu-ray players in this category.
  • Cons: The vast amount of content available online through the Sony Entertainment network, including movies, apps and games, can be a tad overwhelming.

Sony BDP-S570

PC Magazine
24 January 2011
  • Conclusion: With integrated Wi-Fi, plenty of interactive Web features, and future 3D support, Sony's BDP-S570 Blu-Ray player checks all the right boxes. And it's a disc-loading speed demon with excellent HD picture quality.
  • Pros: Excellent HD picture quality. Solid SD quality. Speedy load times. Integrated Wi-Fi. Netflix, Amazon, Slacker and YouTube streaming. Will support 3D playback via a firmware upgrade later this year. 1GB of on-board memory.
  • Cons: Limited front player controls. Remote control is not illuminated.

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
20 September 2010
  • Summary: So we return to the original question of whether this player deservedly commands a marginal premium for its feature set. I say the answer is a resounding YES. For the price, you get a quick, high-quality, Blu-ray player that has excellent deinterlacing performance and also has a huge amount of additional features.

Sony BDP-S570

What Hi-Fi?
14 October 2010
  • Excerpt: £230 for a 3D Blu-ray player, this early into the format's life, seems astonishingly cheap. It's not like that's an online retailer's discounted price, either: it's what Sony Centres are charging. True, the Sony BDP-S570 is a rather unexcitingly styled unit, with a lip at the bottom that we're not entirely keen on, but that fades to insignificance in the face of a spec that includes wi-fi for network streaming and web features (including BBC iPlayer), as well as 1GB of...
  • Pros: Great price, market-leading sound and pictures, including 3D, generally very impressive spec
  • Cons: But no multi-channel analogue output or secondary HDMI connection
