Sony BDP-S790 3D Network Blu-ray Disc Player Review

About.com
27 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The BDP-S790 provides users with three major capabilities: Play disc-based content (Blu-ray, DVD, CD, SACD), play content from attached media devices (USB flash drives, iPod), and stream content from both the internet and home network via its network media player features. On all three counts the BDP-S790 does very well. Also, the inclusion of the two HDMI outputs eliminates the need to upgrade your home theater receiver if is not 3D-compatible.

Sony BDP-S790 Blu-ray 3D Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
5 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony single-handedly won the format war with its timely release of the PlayStation 3. Up until the PS3 hit the market in November 2006, HD DVD was beginning to gain the upper hand with disc and player sales. But the vaunted game station changed the marketplace virtually overnight and signaled the beginning of the end for the red-laser format.

Sony BDP-S790 review

11 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony’s put the lot into the BDP-790, and it shows. Its picture performance is simply outstanding, as good as that of any player available, and it’s an enjoyable listen too. It’s also great to use, either with its simple, effective remote handset (take note, Panasonic) or via its excellent control app. Add in the promise of its future-proof upscaling and you’ve got a simply brilliant buy – No.1 in our Top Ten list of best Blu-ray players it is then.
  • Pros: Packs some serious image quality, Sounds great, too, Comes with a number of useful apps
  • Cons: Stylish but not radical, Jury's out on the 4k upscaling
