      Advantages

      • "its blu ray"

      Disadvantages

      Its an awesome blu ray player its totally the way to go

      The fact of owning a blu ray player is awesome you can enjoy your movies with more HD.
      There are a great number of ports on the back of the player, which make sure you aren't going to run out of connections any time soon. There are also lots of different audio output options, so if you have an older TV then it shouldn't be a problem. It does however only support up to six channels of audio, so the most you are going to get is 6.1 surround sound unfortunately. Disappointing especially considering blu ray supports up to 8 channels.The picture quality is absolutely fantastic as you might expect with any blu ray player, with crisp resolutions and great colour reproduction. Design: The BDP-S1 is good looking, although it isn't quite to my taste. I just find it slightly too chunky. I do think however, that it is going to fit in well anywhere you put this. Be it in a living room, with a computer or in a bedroom. The use of some colour certainly adds some excitement to the looks of this player, as opposed to the usual black/grey schemes used in most cheaper players on the market.
      There are also some lights on the front of the player, but I find them a little bit too bright. They could definitely go some way to lighting up a darkened room. I highly recommend this if you are in the market for a blu ray player I say go for it.

      Advantages

      • "Sharp image"

      Disadvantages

      • "CDs not accepted"
      • "HDMI cable not included"

      Out to date

      Sony BDP-S1 it's a vintage look Blu-ray disc player (DVD compatible, of course) for video, audio and pictures (.jpeg format). It's not compatible with any format of CDs.
      For the movies on DVDs it offers 1080p upscalling through HDMI cable, which might change the way your old DVDs looked.
      It's pretty expensive and it doesn't even come with a HDMI cable included.
      When this player was released was even more expensive, and we had no choice, as this is one of the first blu-ray players ever and it was long waited, but today even the blu-ray player from a PS3 console might be better and less expensive than this. But in those days, the people didn't even know for sure if this format will be the winner over the other format HD-DVD.
      Anyway, this player offers a very sharp image and you can adjust the settings of your speakers, if you have this connected to a 5.1 receiver.
      The buttons are at the top of the front panel without offering a feedback when you press one, but I think nobody uses this buttons so often, for that we have the remote control.
      The sound quality is very good, having all that precision we except from Sony, as long as you also have a good receiver with quality speakers.
      Being old, it's not compatible with HDMI 1.3 version or with BD Profile,loading disc time it's pretty long and it also can happen that a new blu-ray disc doesn't work at all.

      Advantages

      • "Will play DVD's okay"
      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      • Slow
      • "Looks dated"

      Works okay- looks old fashioned- definitely better in the market!

      I am going to base my review on this from when i first bought the product as i think it would be slightly unfair to base my review entirely on how it compares with other products in the market because obviously as time goes on technology improves.

      When i first bought this product, i was impressed with it. It doesn't break the bank, it was relatively cheap (and would be even cheaper now). The picture quality was okay, at the time i thought it was pretty good compared to other blu ray's on the market. The sound is good- but i think this can vary depending on what other devices you own in your TV set/home entertainment system.

      People review that many features are lacking in this blu-ray system but you have to remember this is a first in one of it's kind that's why there is not the latest software and updates available when you purchase this.

      The start up can be quite slow but disc loading is okay and that probably takes about 30 seconds. Unfortunately this deice does not support CD playback. The eject button takes quite a while to eject though! The configuration is quite simple from the start up and menu screen.

      So if you feel like you cannot afford the latest products on the market and don't want to break the bank, this WILL work you just have to be patient. Just remember you get what you pay for and you have to not expect a deluxe home cinema quality!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent blu ray player, even though it doesn't look too great

      Easily the best Blu ray player I have ever used. If you are going to be buying a player in the near future, this is most definitely one that you should consider.

      Design: The BDP-S1 is good looking, although it isn't quite to my taste. I just find it slightly too chunky. I do think however, that it is going to fit in well anywhere you put this. Be it in a living room, with a computer or in a bedroom. The use of some colour certainly adds some excitement to the looks of this player, as opposed to the usual black/grey schemes used in most cheaper players on the market.
      There are also some lights on the front of the player, but I find them a little bit too bright. They could definitely go some way to lighting up a darkened room.

      Connectivity: There are a great number of ports on the back of the player, which make sure you aren't going to run out of connections any time soon. There are also lots of different audio output options, so if you have an older TV then it shouldn't be a problem. It does however only support up to six channels of audio, so the most you are going to get is 6.1 surround sound unfortunately. Disappointing especially considering blu ray supports up to 8 channels.

      The picture quality is absolutely fantastic as you might expect with any blu ray player, with crisp resolutions and great colour reproduction.

      If you are considering getting a blu ray player then this is definitely one to consider.

      Advantages

      • simple
      • performance

      Disadvantages

      • size
      • price

      Great, fast, reliable.

      I was delighted with this product as it was simply fantastic. I am not sure what else you can ask for from a blu ray dvd player other than to play blu ray movies but it honestly performed very well. This was a simple and easy to use product as you do not need to go through any tedious processes and it is straight to the point due to the fact that once you physically install it, you can just insert your blu ray movie, sit back and relax! Honestly, this is a Sony product and in my opinion it did live up to the expectations without a doubt. I believe that the first advantage of this product is the performance. The performance of this product is amazing as it flawlessly plays and loads the movies and there were never any issues with this product. The next advantage of this wonderful product is that it was extremely simple to use! Even for me! and I am not the greatest user of technology. I simply fell in love with this blu ray player as it is one of the only pieces of technology which I own that does not ever have any issues. This was an amazing product but there were also disadvantages. The first disadvantage of this Sony blu ray player was its size. In all honesty I believe that many more price efficient alternatives can be found when looking for a blu ray player which has an appropriate size. The final and most obvious disadvantage of this blu ray player was its price. The price of this blu ray player is far greater than I am comfortable with.
