This Blu-ray Disc player produced terrific audio and video, but it is slow and awkward to use.

Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray Disc Player: Short Take

 

HD DVD had, on the other hand, launched with two Toshiba players with considerable ergonomic issues. These first-gen players are still afflicted with slow startup times and disc access, and playback glitches that would embarrass a $79 DVD player. But...

Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray Disc Player: First Look

Sony BDP-S1

 

The picture quality produced by this machine is excellent. It has great colour definition and has a superb sound quality. The style of the machine is, as you would expect with Sony, very stylish with a simple neatness one comes to expect.

The one think I would say about the machine is that it can be on the slow side to respond to commands. However, it is slightly better with the new firmware upgrade.
