  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and more streaming services than all competing Blu-ray players, but its user interface is mediocre.
  • Cons: The BDP-S580's user interface can be tedious to navigate. And even once you load a streaming service like Netflix, Sony's custom interface displays small cover art that can be tough to read. The BDP-S580 also lacks the popular MLB.TV service, as well as onboard memory for accessing BD-Live features.

Sony BDP-S580 review: Built-in Wi-Fi makes this Blu-ray player convenient, but the price is steep

Good Gear Guide.au
7 October 2011
  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S580 adds only Wi-Fi over the BDP-S480, and comes at a $50 price premium. While it adds convenience we don't think this small inclusion is worthy of its pricetag. Otherwise, it's a competent and powerful Blu-ray player that has the added feature of supporting various BRAVIA Internet Video services.
  • Pros: Good design, As many features as any other BD player
  • Cons: High price over BDP-S480 just for Wi-Fi

  • Summary: The Sony BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and more streaming services than all competing Blu-ray players, but its user interface is mediocre.
  • Pros: The Sony BDP-S580 is a faster-than-average Blu-ray player and its exterior design is one of our favorites. The BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and the best current lineup of streaming-media services, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, Vudu, Slacker, and CinemaNow, and the free iOS and Android control app can search some streaming services.
  • Cons: The BDP-S580's user interface can be tedious to navigate. And even once you load a streaming service like Netflix, Sony's custom interface displays small cover art that can be tough to read. The BDP-S580 also lacks the popular MLB.TV service, as well as onboard memory for accessing BD-Live features.

Sony BDP-S580: veelzijdig doch Spartaans

besteproduct.nl
31 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony is de uitvinder van de blu-raytechnologie en dat is op zich al voldoende reden om te zien hoe de laatste Sony blu-rayspelers presteren. De BDP-S580 is één van de meest uitgebreide blu-rayspeler die de Japanners aanbieden. Dat betekent dus met 3D , met een draadloze verbinding en met uitgebreide smartfuncties. Veel meer heb je eigenlijk niet te wensen als je op zoek bent naar een nieuwe speler.
  • Pros: Als je op zoek bent naar een no-nonsense 3D-blu-rayspeler die voorzien is van allerlei smartfuncties die je draadloos via je thuisnetwerk binnenhaalt.
  • Cons: Als het ontwerp van dit apparaat je helemaal niet aanstaat, je liever met je vingers eigentijdse softtouch-knoppen bedient die zijn verzonken in het apparaat en je al helemaal niet houdt van een standaard afstandsbediening.
