Conclusion: If you’re looking for an abundance of Internet apps, slick, sophisticated onscreen presentation and a radical design, strike the Yamaha BD-S473 off your list. But if you want a robustly made machine that does the basics well, delivers eye-popping pictures and throws in a few treats to keep the interest up, then give it a whirl. The only issue is the price, which is relatively high for a player so light on features and connectivity.
Pros: Solid build quality, Excellent AV performance, Network streaming and YouTube
Cons: No built-in Wi-Fi, Limited Internet content, Basic onscreen design
