Sony's cheapest Blu-ray 3D player, the BDP-S470, gets drunk, tries to impress, and ends up hating on some projectors.

For TV owners, the BDP-S470 is a solid Blu-ray player. It has a slick and reasonably fast operation, tons of streaming options, and has a tiny attractive form factor. The prices I've seen on Amazon also show it to be a great deal. But if you have a...

The new Sony BDP-S470 is Sony's first standalone 3D Blu-ray player to hit the market. But unlike the BDP-S770 which will come 3D-ready straight out of the box, the midrange BDP-S470 will require a firmware update to support 3D playback. That update is...

The launch of 3D players such as the BDP-S470 at a competitive price level by Sony is a step forward in hastening mass market adoption of 3D. But with additional costs involved in upgrading to a 3D HDTV and special 3D glasses it remains to be seen how...

Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player review: an affordable Blu-ray player with 3D capabilities and Bravia Internet Video streaming

 

The Sony BDP-S470 is an affordable 3D Blu-ray player that ticks nearly every box on a videophile's wish-list. That said, there are cheaper options available for those who aren't interested in 3D Blu-ray, such as Sony's BDP-S370 Blu-ray player.

Excellent 1080p video quality in 2D and 3D, user-friendly interface, attractive design

Virtually identical to the Sony BDP-S370 (which retails for $70 less)

Sony BDP-S470 review

 

Is it time we abandoned the 2D Blu-ray player? At this low price Sony's BDP-S470 makes a serious bid at being not just an excellent 3D Blu-ray player, but a fantastic value all-rounder that could quickly see the rug pulled from under non-3D players.

3D-ready, low price, simple design, digital file support, HD images

Wi-Fi adaptor required, limited networking

Found for as low as £130 online, Sony’s BDP-S470 makes for a wonderful 2D Blu-ray alone - with 3D support virtually free. Excellent picture quality makes sure of that, but its superb user interface chucks in not just all-round digital file support from...
