Sony BDP-S780 review

 

The Sony BDP-S780 Blu-ray justifies its premium price

Lots of functionality ; impressive sound and pictures…

… though DVDs could be upscaled more smoothly

If you want a Blu-ray player with all the toys, you need to audition this one

Sony BDP-S780 review

 

On paper, the Sony BDP-S780 looks like a great Blu-ray Disc player. It comes with a large and well-chosen selection of Internet apps, including a Web browser. You can convert 2D to 3D and adjust the 3D settings. It's the fastest Blu-ray player I've...

The Sony BDP-S780 Blu-ray player takes its 3D imaging and Internet access seriously. But its shortcomings make it seem overpriced.

European Blu-ray Player 2011-2012 - Sony BDP-S780

 

As the first Sony Blu-ray player to benefit from an all-Sony chipset, the BDP-S780 succeeds in offering a new level of performance at this entry-level price. Its superb picture performance is aided in no small measure by Sony's proprietary ‘image...

Sony BDP-S780 3D Blu-ray player

 

This Blu-ray player has a slew of internet services, plus a Web browser

Useful smartphone remote-control app ; Great Internet app selection includes Web browser ; Extra 3D settings improve quality

Expensive ; Considerable usability problems ; Browser lacks Flash

The Sony BDP-S780 offers a wide selection of Internet-streamed entertainment, but makes some curious compromises. Its 3D settings can improve stereoscopic viewing. But the US$230 price may be a painful trade-off for this model's capabilities.

Sony BDP-S780

 

The Sony BDP-S780 is a blazing-fast, full-featured Blu-ray player, but its video issues keep it back from being truly excellent.

Fast loading times. Built-in Wi-Fi. 3D Support. Plenty of streaming media services.

Video processing issues cause tearing in fast motion footage.

Sony BDP-S780

 

The Sony BDP-S780 is Sony's 2011 flagship blu-ray player. It replaced the excellent BDP-S770. However some features were removed, and Sony dropped the list price by $50 but added Skype and Super Bit Mapping. Key features like 3D playback, Wi-fi...

Although there are some reservations about the new design and patchy Wi-fi, on the whole the Sony BDP-S780 excels where it matters. With outstanding video enhancing features designed to optimize every pixel on your display, the end result is amazing....
