"Unbeatable, given the price."

I bought this as a second player for use in a bedroom. First impressions were mixed. Blu-ray performance was very good. Not up there with the performance of my main player (Pioneer BDP-51FD) but still very good, especially considering the price difference. However, switching to DVD, I found that the player cut out every few minutes. The Player was returned to the retailer and replaced with a new one, which works a treat with both Blu-rays and DVDs.

I paid £80.00 for the player and it can generally be found for around the £100.00 mark. It’s extremely easy to set up, and the menus are easy to navigate. Blu-ray playback is very good indeed, delivering very detailed images and good solid sound. DVD upscaling is acceptable, though not the best I’ve seen. Sony do not provide an HDMI cable in the box, but, as anyone wanting to get the best out of the machine would upgrade from the supplied freebie anyway, this isn’t a real problem.

Any niggles regarding the lack of an HDMI cable and the average DVD upscaling have to be put into context with the purchase price. At £80.00, this was an absolute bargain, and performance is certainly much better than its budget price suggests, performing its primary function of Blu-ray playback superbly.
