Super

ProPicture quality. Cheap if it's still out there

ConsChoosy over the playing of recordable media

This player is my first, and so far, only DVD player. Although no longer a current model (like a middle-aged divorcee, it has been replaced by something slimmer!) it still makes the grade, so if you see it as an end of line bargain, don't mess about, buy it! Overall, picture quality is great...

ConsOld dvd player compared to tadays models

This is a great dvd player from Sony so you will obviously get great build quality and style. I bought mine nearly 5 years ago and it is still going strong and I have never had any problems with it at all. It hasnt even needed a lens cleaners through it. My dvd collection is over 600 titles, so...

Well, this is one of Sony's mid range prices. This model contains lots of features with good quality sound and picture. This model came out with the first range of Sony's DVD players. This model has been around some time now, but you will still find it one of the best in the DVD market. You can...

“Out-dated, but still great.”

published 11/07/2000

ProSuperb performance.

ConsOutdated, and not cheap when new.

I've had my Sony 525 since mid '99, and it's been exemplary in it's performance. At the time the DVD player market was still fairly fresh and there was no such thing as a budget player. The best DVD was considered to be the Sony 725, but with a price tag of over £500, I decided it just wasn't...

“Excellent Workhorse”

ProSony Reliability, Industry Standard Support

Consn/a

At the time I bought the 525D it was top of the range, one year down the line it still compares very favourably with newer DVD players. Setup and installation was simple, with very clear cabling suggestions. Using the player is straight forward. The player takes shortcuts to common tasks makes...

“Sony 525 is Great”

published 26/07/2000

ProPerfect sound & picture

ConsFlat cosmetic design

The Sony 525 is now being replaced by newer sexier models but all that means is that you will be able to pick it up at a much cheaper price than I bought it for. This will make the player more tempting than when I bought it. I spent a long time picking a DVD player and was torn between a cheaper...

Being a serious Movie watcher and interested in the latest technology I was careful that I chose the right player to serve my purpose. I took a good few weeks looking at numerous magazines and the one that stood out for me was the Sony DVP S 525. The mere name of Sony suggests quality and quality...

Consexpensive

This technology is excellent. The image quality is fantastic. The sound is incredible and so good. You must have a DVD player. You can not only use it to view movies, you can also listen to music and use it as a sound system. The machine is pretty and goes well with any type or kind of living...
