  • Conclusion: The $249.99 Sony BDP-S790 3D Blu-ray Player competes successfully with other models that are many times more expensive. I wanted a Blu-ray player that could give me the best 1080p image that my HDTV could display. With the BDP-S790, I got it.
  • Pros: Web browser, Gracenote look up functions, 7.1 audio output
  • Cons: Power cord permanently attached

24 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony's top-end Blu-ray player for 2013 is largely unchanged from 2012’s top model, but this isn’t a bad thing as the S790 was one of the most comprehensive Blu-ray players of last year.

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...
  • 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
