Summary: This is a great piece of kit and took no time to set up and I was up and running in 15 minutes. I am using it with my Sony Bravia TV so the bravia sync system means I need just one remote. Boy! - do animation films look good in Blu-ray!
Fantastic player, but dodgy drive gives out in 18 months

Summary: The reviews for this unit on its launch all chimed in with a resounding 'fantastic, best in class' rating. I opted for this circa 2009, and have not been disappointed with its picture, sound, upscaling and blu-ray rendering. That is up to now, when the drive unit is sounding like a car idling heavily - very noisy and it doesn't dissipate through the watching experience.
Summary: I have a BDPS-370 which is great. I thought I would buy a player further up the range and with better quality. It does not seem to have the Bravia internet widgets of the cheaper players..i.e. you tube iplayer etc. I am not sure why this functionality has been omitted in a more expensive player. As a disc player it is excellent but I will be returning it as it has limited functionality compared to its cheaper cousins!
Summary: I am not very good with gadgets. This was my husbands choice and he is a bit of a buff when it comes to these things. This blue ray player is easy to use and has lots of great functions. It was exactly what we were looking for according to my husband. All in all very pleased.
Summary: My first entry into the hd world & what a revelation! The picture & sound quality from this player is jaw dropping. Toy Story 3 was the first film viewed & I was amazed at the depth & sharpness & clarity of the picture. (This player is connected to a Panasonic plasma TV.) It displays the usual Sony quality, although it does take a long time to load! All in all it is worth the wait.
Summary: What a brilliant player.I have already got the bdp-560 model but this is a clear step up in terms of build quality,sharper picture and no fan noise during playback.I purchased this player through amazon for [...].absolute bargain!
