Sony BDV F500


ease of use, sound quality

volume level doesnt match the tv, with all the technology in this kit you would think it could talk to the tv and match the volume levels.

Excellent range of features. Attractive styling.

Disappointed with product overall, I expected the sound quality to be better for a Sony product and found the instructions very unclear.
