Sony's new UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray player appears to be elegantly designed and has support for a wide number of formats and services.
The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player offers a lot of features for little money but a lack of input responsiveness can spoil some of the fun.
Late to the game, Sony's first 4K Blu-ray player, the UBP-X1000ES, will be a premium model with very limited distribution.
In the absence of a 4K player, Sony has announced a high-end 1080p Blu-ray player it says is its first "hi-res" model.
If you're looking for a streaming box that not only does Blu-ray movies but also plays games, then the Sony BDP-S5500 is an absolute bargain.
If you want to take your Blu-rays on the road, Sony's BDP-SX1 portable player is a reasonable, if expensive, option. Its good USB media support is a bonus, but Blu-rays don't look significantly better than DVDs on a 10-inch screen.
The Sony BDP-S480 is a steal at its current price. As well as premium 3D Blu-ray playback capability, it offers tonnes of other great features, including access to the Bravia Internet Video Web portal.
The Sony BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and more streaming services than all competing Blu-ray players, but its user interface is mediocre.
If you want an entry-level Blu-ray player that does the basics and offers solid picture and sound quality, we can't recommend the Sony BDP-S360 enough. There aren't too many extras, such as networked media-streaming capability or support for hi-def files downloaded from the Internet, but this type of functionality isn't likely to interest the target audience for this machine anyway. Good work, Sony -- this machine's a winner
The PlayStation 3 is no longer the only Sony Blu-ray player you should consider buying. As well as offering an up-to-the-minute feature set, Sony's stand-alone BDP-S760 leaves the company's games console for dead in the all-important picture and sound departments
Finally, a Blu-ray player from Sony for everyone to get excited about. This player is relatively quick to load discs, picture performance is superb, and its wonderful menu system and speed at dealing with interactive features make it well worth its bargain price. It's just a shame it took Sony so long to get this player on the market
The Sony BDP-S550 offers excellent image quality and a solid feature set, but only consider it if you need the multichannel analog outputs.
There is no compelling reason to buy this player over a PlayStation 3: it's too expensive, doesn't support profile 1.1 or 2.0, and costs more than pretty much every Blu-ray player on the market. The picture and sound quality are, however, excellent, which makes it a good player with a silly price tag
In many ways, the Sony BDP-S1E is a perfect snapshot of the current state of Blu-ray play. On the one hand, it shows to breathtaking effect just what awesome audio and especially video treats Blu-ray can deliver. But on the other hand, there are just too many reminders that Blu-ray is also essentially a work in progress
The Sony LF-PK1 LocationFree Player Pak isn't quite on a par with the Slingbox, but it is the only device that streams video to your PSP--and it's getting better with each firmware upgrade.
