Sony BDP-S470

 

Is it time we abandoned the 2D Blu-ray player? At this low price Sony's BDP-S470 makes a serious bid at being not just an excellent 3D Blu-ray player, but a fantastic value all-rounder that could quickly see the rug pulled from under non-3D players....

3D-ready, low price, simple design, digital file support, HD images

Wi-Fi adaptor required, limited networking

Found for as low as £130 online, Sony’s BDP-S470 makes for a wonderful 2D Blu-ray alone - with 3D support virtually free. Excellent picture quality makes sure of that, but its superb user interface chucks in not just all-round digital file support from...

Sony BDP-S470 review

 

3D Blu-ray, DivX HD and BBC iPlayer for a notch over £100; Sony presents the moon on a stick

Compact design ; Plays 3D Blu-ray discs ; 2D & 3D Picture quality ; BBC iPlayer & Lovefilm ; Price

No built-in Wi-Fi ; Poor networking

Whether or not 3D as a format has a future, and especially a present, in your home is up to you. The so-called hunger among consumers for 3D certainly isn't obvious to us, though Sony – one of the third dimension's biggest promoters – is seeking to get...

Sony BDP-S470 review

 

With an RRP of £159 inc VAT, the Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player provides an affordable entry point into 3D video – although naturally you'll need a 3D TV to make use of this feature.

The Sony BDP-S470 is an affordable 3D Blu-ray player that ticks nearly every box on a videophile's wish-list. That said, there are cheaper options available for those who aren't interesed in 3D Blu-ray, such as Sony's BDP-S370 Blu-ray player.

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

Virtually identical to the Sony BDP-S370 (which retails for $70 less)

The Sony BDP-S470 is an affordable 3D Blu-ray player that ticks nearly every box on a videophile's wish-list. That said, there are cheaper options available for those who aren't interested in 3D Blu-ray, such as Sony's BDP-S370 Blu-ray player.

The outstanding Sony BDPS470 3D Blu-ray player proves that you don't have to pay a premium for usable features and stellar performance.

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...
