Sounds good, looks great


weeks of confusion between the Sony BDV-E880 (a trusted model with over 250 positive reviews) and its newer model Sony BDV-E490, I went with my gut feeling and got the Sony BDV-E490 as my first Home Cinema to go with my Sony Bravia 40" LCD ...

Looks, Bravia Sync, Blu-ray picture and sound quality

Not loud enough sometimes

Excellent Home threater


I have Bought Sony BDV E-490 home theater this week. Very good styling and build quality. It's playing almost all formats. Video and audio quality is excellent. It's worth to buy. It's very simple to use/operate and setup. Surround sound is rocking.
