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

Otherwise the BDP-S4100 does everything you’d expect of a Blu-ray player, outputting HD audio formats in bitstream or PCM, upscaling DVD to 1080p and converting 2D to 3D on a compatible TV. There’s no 4K upscaling though.

Best Blu-ray player up to £100, Awards 2013. An impressive Blu-ray player with an impressive performance and a good set of features

Punchy, vibrant, natural picture ; Agile sound ; Good features

No built-in wi-fi

The Sony BDP-S4100 Blu-ray player does more (and does it better) than we’d expect given its low price.
