Good: Blu Ray Play Back Is Fantastic, And Its Quick Load Option Is Very Good
Bad: Poor Online Streaming Of HD Content even When Connected To High Speed Broadband.
Comment: I chose the BDP-S370 after reading all the reviews I could find on it, and I am mostly pleased I did, as this is mostly a very nice little player.
Where it is let down though is in online streaming.
Wether is is connected using Sony's Wireless Dongil UWA-BR100 or by a network cable to my router it still has the same problem.
The player struggles to play some SD streaming content from lovefilm.com or HD content from Sony's new Qriocity - Movie On-Demand Service And The BBC iPlayer.
Even though I have 20mg Broadband I still keep getting the "Loading" (Buffering) messaage through movies.
Sony's support is terrible as they just don't know what to suggest.
And I know it's not my broadband connection as the Pc And Laptop Streams perfectly.
This problem seems to be a fault with this player, as many people on Sony's forum also have this problem too.
So until a firmware update is released, I wont be fully happy with this player.......
Bad: none so far
Comment: It plays .mkv files!
Good: Good Blue Ray Player, BBC IPlayer and Love Film support is seamless
Bad: nothing so far
Comment: There is now android support. App can be found on the marketplace.
This player will also find media either on a usb key or hard drive plugged into the device or on a media server on your network. Plays youtube clips and online audio content as well.
Awesome so far but I'm hoping they will add additional support for other online sources such as ITV player in the future.
The level of seamless integration bodes well for the next generation of this type of box. With the addition of a wireless keyboard/ mouse and a web browser this device would be all the media centre most people need.
Good: A Great Blu-ray player for great price
Bad: No Wifi
Comment: If you want to upgrade your From your PS3 or your looking for your first Blue-ray player this is great choice. I cannot see any down sides to this machine it is so slick and looks, and espcially sounds amazing. It works Great with my Panasonic TV. I got my for £99 an absolute steel. It will take you hours to look though all the online features. The Panasonic players are far too dear and not as good.
The lack of wifi is the only downside but I can use the ethernet cable from my PS3 so it is not a problem.
