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...

3D Blu-ray, DivX HD and BBC iPlayer for a notch over £100; Sony presents the moon on a stick

The Sony BDP-S470 is a midrange Blu-ray player boasting 3D capabilities and Bravia Internet Video streaming. It slots between the Sony BDP-S370 and So...

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)

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.

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...

With an RRP of £159 inc VAT, the Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player provides an affordable entry point into 3D video – although naturally you'll need a 3D TV to make use of this feature.

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 interesed in 3D Blu-ray, such as Sony's BDP-S370 Blu-ray player.

Although the 3D-capable Sony BDP-S470 isn't really worth considering unless you have a 3D TV, it's still a top-notch Blu-ray player, at a very reasonable price.

Excellent picture quality ; Good media-playback support ; Attractive styling

Lack of 7.1 analogue audio outputs

Sony is ahead of the curve with its Blu-ray players. The BDP-S470 is not only a superb player, but also offers support for online content, media playback and networking. Sony has listened to its customers and is producing sensibly priced products that...

The outstanding Sony BDPS470 3D Blu-ray player proves that you don't have to pay a premium for usable features and stellar performance.

Excellent audio and video ; IPTV offering is best in show ; MKV playback ; 3D Blu-ray capability ; Cheap as

Minimal on-board controls ; Hooking up to a receiver gives better surround sound

With less than a week to go of 2010 we've finally found our favourite disk player of the year. It does everything you'd need it to and at just AU$300 it seems hard to justify spending more on a Blu-ray player. What this player doesn't do, you won't...
