Sony BDP-S5100 review

 

The design-led Sony BDP-S5100 is a smart Blu-ray player that demands your attention

Appealing and compact design ; Vivid Blu-ray images ; Useful apps and features

Just one HDMI ; 2D-to-3D conversion ; Impractical form factor

Sony BDP-S5100

 

Sony's impressive Blu-ray deck boasts superb features and sublime pictures

Sublime HD pictures ; Slick operating system ; Excellent feature list

No DivX support and won't stream MKV ; No 4K upscaling or second HDMI ; Needs more catch-up TV apps

There’s a single HDMI v1.4 output – two would have been nice at this price, but that’s reserved for the S790. It’s joined by a coaxial digital audio output, Ethernet port and a second USB port. On cheaper models the latter would be used to connect a...

Sony BDP-S5100 review

 

A good Blu-ray player with good online services, but we think it's a little expensive

Sony BDP-S5100

 

Best Blu-ray player £100-£150, Awards 2013. Thanks to the great picture and awesome sound quality, Sony's BDP-S5100 is a top budget buy

Clean, sharp images ; Impressive detail in dark scenes ; Punchy colours ; Nice to use ; Eye-catching design

Nothing of note

If the BDP-S5100 is any indication of what’s to come, 2013 could be a bumper year for Sony’s Blu-ray players. This has all the hallmarks of a class-leading machine.

Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi review

 

While not the last disc format that will ever be made -- 4K Blu-ray is almost here -- the humble 1080p Blu-ray is probably the last you'll actually need. Now is a good time to buy a player if you don't already have one: the hardware is cheap and...

The Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi is a compact powerhouse with a wide variety of streaming services; image quality is mostly excellent, even with streaming content; good upscaling of DVDs.

The disk drawer seems flimsy; DLNA streaming isn't as slick as you get from some competitors; 3:2 pull-down performance isn't as smooth as on the Panasonic BDT230; Super Wi-Fi didn't provide better streaming in our tests; no analog outputs.

The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.

Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player

 

Sony didn't go back and reinvent the Blu-ray player with the BDP-S5100. They stuck with their successful formula and have what is a minor upgrade to the BDP-S590 from last year. The new design certainly looks nice, though I do have a couple of...

Easy to install and use. Lower ranking on the sound quality because a good quality sound device is needed. If connected only to the TV the sound is similar to the one from normal TV. Very good image quality
