Sony BDP-S1700 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony BDP-S1700 is Sony's entry-level Blu-ray player. It won't play 3D or 4K ultra-HD discs, but it still has a variety of smart features so that you can access online streaming content. Is this player a great-value option or a cheap dud? We sent it...

The best thing can come in the smallest packages!

 

Very small footprint but an outstanding set of features packed inside, not sure I'll use all of them but it is nice to know they are there. For now the job of playing BlueRay Discs is done easily, quickly and to the highest quality.

Good Picture Quality

 

Very easy to setup. Smooth Streaming Nice Player Compact Best for Smart TV(Not best for 4k or 3D TV because there are other ups calling product) Only one thing, HDMI wire needs to buy separately.

Great little unit

 

Very happy with this player. It's compact but feature packed with a pin sharp picture and great sound, also loads discs faster than my old player which is a bonus. I doubt you'd get better for the price.

Great looks. Great sound. Easy setup.

 

Used this to replace a traditional stereo and tv setup. More than happy. Very discrete looks but big sound.
