Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player review: an affordable Blu-ray player with 3D capabilities and Bravia Internet Video streaming

Excellent 1080p video quality in 2D and 3D, user-friendly interface, attractive design

Excellent audio and video ; IPTV offering is best in show ; MKV playback ; 3D Blu-ray capability ; Cheap as

Minimal on-board controls ; Hooking up to a receiver gives better surround sound

With less than a week to go of 2010 we've finally found our favourite disk player of the year. It does everything you'd need it to and at just AU$300 it seems hard to justify spending more on a Blu-ray player. What this player doesn't do, you won't...

Consumer review (cnet.com.au)

Sony BDP-S470

 

I have had this player for a week connected to a Sony Bravia 3D TV; it is a brilliant buy @ '99 and an extraordinary buy at '50 as currently on sale via Sony Centres. Not sure I agree with the writer's pessimistic assessment that "for the next 50 years...
