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?...

Excellent compact Blu-ray player

 

I would recommend this player to anyone who does not want a large intrusive player linked to the TV. It has some very nice features as well and the price is good.
