 Great player.........but

I see this used to come with a "free" blu ray - but now it doesn't. Still, at the time of writing, it's 99 pounds, and for a top rated blu ray player, that can't be sniffed at.
So the good - top class picture and sound. It's not just a player, it's a media centre with iplayer and lovefilm.

DVD's - this upscales very well - but always check if your tv upscales better - my LG upscales better than even this player, so I have it set to output as original source.

An extremely good feature is that this can be made multi-region for dvd's with a simple code programmed into one of those "all for one" remotes you can buy.

So why only four stars? Well, like other Sony's, they've presumably put in a cheap drive, and it gives off a high pitched whine when playing blu rays. Even worse, some players when playing dvd's are really noisy with what sounds like a box of frogs in there. Mine had to go back because of this - in this day and age, it's simply unacceptable to have such a noisy faulty player.

I believe it's luck of the draw if you get a noisy player or not - so don't hesitate to demand a replacement if this bothers you.

For under 100 pound you can't do better. Picture and sound are amazing. This is the second sony blu ray player i have bought from play for and the delivery is second to none. Ordered sunday and it came by tuesday. Not sure why other reviewers are complaining of a noise while the player is on, mine is quiet as a mouse. All in all top blu ray player for the money. 5 stars.

(First time Reviewer)

I bought this on April Fool's Day 2011 during the sales. It was reduced to 100 Pounds (cannot use currency symbols in these reviews) and came with a Tron Legacy BR for free, which was a fantastic deal (I see now of writing it is 117 Pounds with Karate Kid). I've since bought myself a very nice Blu-Ray collection and they all look great on this player.

My only concern was that there was a lot of grain on certain bits of Battlestar Galactica, but after watching the Making Of, that was an artistic preference for the series, not a technical fault of the player.

What else is there to say? It's great, it's cheap, it comes with a free BR as well. Get it bought if you're in want of a BR Player.

Performs really well, quick disc load, upscales as good as you can get. Quiet, slim and good looking design. All in all it is a bargain, online features are good even if this player doesn't feature as much as the higher priced models, the menu promises 3D soon but tbh I'm not a fan of 3D at home, only certain movies have pulled it off in the cinema, just a fan of crisp clear picture and sound, which I didn't get from my PS3.
