Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player

 

Sony didn't go back and reinvent the Blu-ray player with the BDP-S5100. They stuck with their successful formula and have what is a minor upgrade to the BDP-S590 from last year. The new design certainly looks nice, though I do have a couple of...

Sony's impressive Blu-ray deck boasts superb features and sublime pictures

Sublime HD pictures ; Slick operating system ; Excellent feature list

No DivX support and won't stream MKV ; No 4K upscaling or second HDMI ; Needs more catch-up TV apps

There’s a single HDMI v1.4 output – two would have been nice at this price, but that’s reserved for the S790. It’s joined by a coaxial digital audio output, Ethernet port and a second USB port. On cheaper models the latter would be used to connect a...

Sony BDP-S5100

 

Best Blu-ray player £100-£150, Awards 2013. Thanks to the great picture and awesome sound quality, Sony's BDP-S5100 is a top budget buy

Clean, sharp images ; Impressive detail in dark scenes ; Punchy colours ; Nice to use ; Eye-catching design

Nothing of note

If the BDP-S5100 is any indication of what’s to come, 2013 could be a bumper year for Sony’s Blu-ray players. This has all the hallmarks of a class-leading machine.

width spec incorrect

 

on the sony site the width is listed as 11.4" When I went to install it, it was 14.1 wide. Too wide to fit the space allowed.

Pretty good disc player

 

This has been a pretty good disc player. Easy to use if you have patience to wait for it. A few times it has locked up, requiring me to disconnect it from the electrical outlet to reset it. Also the closed-captioning feature does not work when using...

User Friendly, Smart

slow

Solid

 

I recently purchased this unit and I'm pretty happy with it. It supports all of the major streaming services. I've used Netflix + Hulu + Amazon Instant Video with no problems at all. I've also used the DLNA implementation streaming content off of my...

Good streaming service support, solid DLNA implementation, low power and looks great

None that I can find

Great streaming device

 

Easy to set-up and versatile since it connects to many network services such as Netflix, Windows 8 PC that streams via Windows Media Player and a DLNA network file storage to stream my media. Response is quick and the XrossMediaBar (XMB UI is familiar...

Stylish, plays many file formats

Excellent Player for the Price

 

Great Picture quality output, excellent wifi connection speed, simple intuitive user interface and fast disk insert to play time. The remote should have been backlit and not ideal for web browsing. I'm trying to figure out the sideview app..can't seem...

Great Picture quality output

Remote should be backlit

Being returned

 

Has this player one day and it is going back. I have always been a fan of Sony but this 2013 model is not so hot. Three times I had to reset it after losing internet connections for it to reconnect and even after it prompted for a firmware...

Design

Choppy internet/streaming, no built in memory for BD Live, boring interface
