Expert review by: Danny Phillips (

Sony BDV-EF200


Sony's 3D-ready Blu-ray system offers some great features at an affordable price, but does its sound quality cut the mustard?

Picture quality ; Two HDMI inputs and two USB ports ; Excellent range of online content

Lightweight build quality ; Harsh sound quality ; Dull design

Also on the back are an optical digital audio input, analogue stereo input and composite video output, plus an Ethernet port, FM antenna input and a second USB port that can be used to play back digital media or connect a USB wireless LAN adapter...

Sound is excellent Multi Region on the DVD side, remote function that control the TV

Can not run TV through for non-film DVD/Blu-Ray sound synchronisation is way out. All of the remote control function do not work

Works well with our Sony TV as the "Theatre" button on the TV switches on/off the unit

Haven't thought of any - so far

Sony BDV-EF200


Bought this to provide a better sound than the standard Sony TV. It works well. No frills just greatly improved sound.It was good value for money

Not being an expert in setting up such equipment I still have difficulty with the remotes and in my attempts to get all 'instructions' on to one of them. I have yet to 'sort out' the imperfections, probably my fault,but won't attempt this until after...

Price. Features

Does not have all the TV player sites available (eg ITV player) ; Very fiddly controls, and it is a shame that the TV has to be on to use certain facilities (eg. You should be able to play music from the iPod without having TV on)

Sony BDV-EF200


Easy setup and available at low price

Sound syncronisation through Sony HDMI cable to a Sony TV a little off - you can recalibrate this, but it's easier just to mute thr TV. Bravia Sync could work a little better
