Sony BDP-S4100


Terrific picture quality on a well-priced Blu-ray deck lacking a few features

Terrific Blu-ray pictures, Smooth operating system, Stylish design

No DivX support and won't stream MKV, No built-in Wi-Fi, Samsung offers more TV apps

Got my Blu-ray player in August last year and other than taking ages to install updates I'm happy with my purchase. My only complaint when playing music and going back the the XMB it stops the music, why can't this be like PS4 where music plays while...

Great sound


1000w and a great sound. Not that easy to setup buy has all the functionality you'd expect from a 3d player. It doesn't come with any wires so be prepared to lay out for a hdmi and a digital optical cable to set it up correctly
