This player was built purposely to complement the Sony Bravia range of TVs. With that said what can this player offer to both Bravia and non-Bravia owners.
As with most Sony Blu ray players the audio and video quality is top notch and can't be faulted. The player will play back BD-ROM/R/RE, DVD-+Video/R/RW, CD, AVCHD. Which is quite an impressive list although I have seen better.
For Bravia owners the player contains BRAVIA Sync technology which allows for stunningly quick connection with anything baring the Bravia name, this creates a quicker way of setting up your player and syncing up audio/video to optimum settings.
The player offers BD live and firmware updates via an Ethernet cable, this should really be WI-FI. The player also contains some internal memory for BD live data; this is a luxury as most players make you buy separate external memory.
To surmise this is another great Sony player which is meant for people who place quality of audio and video high in their list of priorities. The player does lack slightly in features such as WI-FI but makes up for it in video processing. I like the Bravia sync idea although it does kind of discriminate against other TV owners.
Summary: Great player
