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

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.

Sony BDP-S4100


Very simple to use, small, compact and looks good on the shelf under telly. Well pleased with the 3D quality it provides

Audio could be better, and then I found another Sony Blu-ray player with built in cinema sound system for only an extra £100 that I could have got. May have missed a trick here

Sony BDP-S4100


The product is very reasonably priced but came without any connection leads and I was very eager to set up the machine so had to pinch the HDMI cable from the Tivo boxuntil I could go back out and buy one - hence the overall 9/10 rather than 10/10....

It plays bluray

Cheap, plastic, noisy, no analogue output. Bought to play bluray music which it does after spending as much again on the digital converter / connectors. But its probably no different to all the other players at this price point, an oppo is £500
