Sony BDP-S570

CNET
30 January 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.
  • Cons: Inconsistent streaming-video performance using Wi-Fi; some very minor image quality nitpicks.

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.

Sony BDP-S570 3D Blu-ray Player Review

Reviewboard Magazine
5 January 2011
  • Excerpt: For a long time, Sony’s been struggling with a good problem to have regarding their standalone Blu-ray decks.  It doesn’t matter if their quality strong, the reaction time decent, and the supplemental specifics pleasing to the eye, they always have to combat price-wise against the company’s “flagship” player, the Playstation 3.

Expert Review

TopTenREVIEWS
12 October 2010
  • Excerpt: A company doesn't climb to the top of the corporate food chain by producing subpar products. Two of Sony's products claimed spots on our review of the best 3D Blu-ray players . The Sony BDP S480 landed in the latter half of our side-by-side comparison chart. However, the fact that it is present means it's one of the best. We were impressed by this device's wealth of online apps to compliment its moving resolution and 3D playback.
  • Pros: Sony's app selection is arguably the most compelling feature of this player.
  • Cons: You only get a single HDMI terminal on this device.

Sony BDP-S570 Universal Blu-ray Player

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 review Review

CNET
22 October 2010
  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S570 is probably the best all-round Blu-ray player yet. Not only does it rock with Blu-ray discs and SACDs, it blows the doors off the brave new world of TV streaming. Having BBC iPlayer on tap is a huge attraction, and if you have media files on USB, this deck will do its utmost to play them. For the cash, you just can't carp.
  • Pros: High-quality Blu-ray playback, Full HD 3D compatibility, BBC iPlayer heads up an impressive list of streaming content, Sony's Bravia Internet Video portal, Excellent file support for media on USB
  • Cons: You'll need a new HDMI v1.4 AV receiver to integrate it into your home cinema, Navigating the volume of services is a challenge, Limited file support when streaming video across your home network

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
