Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray Disc Player: Short Take

 

HD DVD had, on the other hand, launched with two Toshiba players with considerable ergonomic issues. These first-gen players are still afflicted with slow startup times and disc access, and playback glitches that would embarrass a $79 DVD player. But...

Sony does it again! Incredible value and I just love the small footprint. It's almost invisible under the flat screen.

Great Price for Sony

 

Great price for the middle-of-the-road Blu-ray. Solid unit as expected from Sony. Small foot print so as not to take up too much room.

Bang for the buck

 

I was very satisfied with this purchuse and would recommend it to everyone looking for a simple blueray disc player. I have a JVC tv and they work together when powering up. Turn on the dvd and the tv will come too.
