Sony BDP-S5200 review

 

Pulls out nearly all the stops with super W-iFi, screen mirroring and plenty of apps

WiFi ; 2D and 3D Blu-ray ; Key streaming apps ; USB playback ; TV SideView app

Fiddly screen mirroring ; Opera TV Apps Store ; PS3-era user interface

Sony's all-encompassing effort for 2014 covers 2D and 3D Blu-ray, copes with a ton of digital file formats over USB, and proffers Super Wii access to core smart TV apps like. However, it uses an ageing user interface, while the provision of Opera TV...

Sony BDP-S5200

 

Perfect 2D/3D Blu-ray playback, Great scaling of DVDs, Lots of VoD apps, SideView app is great

Build quality could be better, A little noisier than some, Ditch the XMB menu system

The Sony BDP-S5200 is the Official World Cup Blu-ray player by virtue of the fact it just is. There is no special mode, nor exclusive football related content to be had by virtue of its standing but priced at only around £100, you’re hardly paying for...

Sony BDP S5200 Review

 

This player is small and sleek, with a design that would be a nice addition to your home entertainment center. This player's minor shortcomings weren't enough to keep it out of our top three spots, and we're confident you'll be impressed with the...

The screen-mirroring technology available for the S5200 is compatible with both Apple and Android mobile devices.

This low-end player does not feature 4K Ultra upscaling.

The Sony S5200 features 3D Blu-ray playing and would be a great addition to your home entertainment system.

Excellent bluray player. Has wonderful interface.

Occasionally there is 2 seconds of non-audio, but it only seemed to happen in the first few weeks of use.

Very easy to set up, including connecting to wireless router.

Nice and small but top of box is flimsy so could bend in easily.
