Amazing Quality Picture - Worth Every Penny

Advantages: Easy set up, sony looks,
Disadvantages: none that i've noticed
I did a lot of research before buying this. I searched and searched what i wanted. I'm a fan of Sony, i think they are the Apple Mac of the TV world - stylish and quality. I looked at Panasonic, Samsung and Toshiba players. I actually stumbled upon this at my local Tesco. It was avaible slightly cheaper on Amazon, but i got my clubcard points and it was infront of me at the store. So on impulse i just grabbed it. Very easy to set up. Pictures in the instructions show you what cables go where. No cables included, but it did have the batteries included for the remote. I am a bit of a technophobe, so i assumed i could just plug a scart lead in and i'd be away. I ended up having to take a second trip to Tesco to buy a cable. Check out the spec in line with your own TV model to make sure you get the right cables. Once i had them, i plugged it all in and it was up and running in no time at all. One button pressed and it was attached and working within minutes. Look is lovely, it is really pretty! Watched a few episodes of Bones on normal DVD, looks really great. I have a new TV, so honestly couldn't say if it is the BD player or TV! But either way, the combination is amazing. I watched my first BluRay Disc last night. I cannot describe here how great it looks. Clear picture, bright colours - for some reason i really focus in on the Blue - Blue seems to look so crisp, clear, a bit like the ocean off a Greek Island. I would say this is the best thing i have bought this year. I haven't yet set up the audio, so can't comment on that - my laziness, not product related.
Summary: Value for money, quality, easy use, easy set up
