Sony BDP-S3700 review

 

An impressive picture and decent sound make for a good value Blu-ray player...

Detailed picture ; Solid upscaler ; Smooth motion ; Subtle contrast

Would benefit from a more dynamic sound

A low-cost home cinema setup would welcome the addition of this Blu-ray player

Sony BDP-S3700 review

 

With 4K Blu-ray having finally arrived in 2016 and streaming players costing as little as $30 , it seems almost "retro" to be buying a 1080p disc player these days. Or does it? Standard Blu-ray discs lack the benefits of HDR but can still look better...

The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player demonstrates good features and performance for the money. The number of streaming apps is solid, and disc loading times are fairly respectable.

Entering text in apps is laggy and frustrating. The implementation of the PlayStation Now gaming app is relatively poor.

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.

Sony BDP-S3700 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony BDP-S3700 is a mid-range Blu-ray player with built-in wi-fi and smart apps. You'll also be able to connect your smartphone and cast content from it to your TV. But how well does this player do the basics, such as play Blu-ray discs and DVDs?...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Extremely good value for money

 

I was reluctant at first as I am not particularly good with smart phones and new technology, but I am delighted with my player, the sound quality is very good and picture is excellent, but most importantly, although it is packed with features I find it...

Brilliant little machine

 

I love movies and prime and Netflix and this is ideal. Great picture, easy access to prime and Netflix, really small, super easy to set up with hdmi cable. Plays dvd and blu ray and looks brilliant. Physically looks really cool too!

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Very good.

 

Our last LG DVD player (bought in 2013 suddenly died) and with a 40 repair, buying a new one looked the sensible option. This is simple to use, has good internet features, and has given no problems after 2 weeks.

Perfect

Excellent item

 

Bought this to replace my old player. This is so much better. Just plug in and off to go. A very good item and not a bad price either. I would recommend this item highly.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Basic functions ok

 

Plays blu-ray discs and DVDs fine. Good picture and sound. Found the wi-fi network quickly but will not connect to the internet despite the correct password being entered on three occasions. As we only want it to play discs that is not a problem,...
