Sony BDP-S560 Blu-Ray Review

 

Built-in Wi-Fi ; Power-saving features ; Great image quality

Multimedia features for photos only ; Poor remote

The Sony BDP-S560 delivers very good images--exceptional ones on DVD--and Wi-Fi connectivity, but its poorly designed remote and lack of streaming extras hurt its value.

You get more than BD-Live when you plug the BDP-S560 into your home network. If you have a computer that runs DLNA server software on your network, this player will recognize it and display the photos from that computer. It can also display photos from...

Sony BDP-S560 Blu-ray Player Review

 

It's natural to assume that technology-initiator Sony would be a market leader in the player category, though the widespread implementation of the PS3 might be a bit of a shock. For those who weren't swayed towards using a video game machine as a...

Sony BDP-S560 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Sony's new mid-level Blu-ray player offers a few noteworthy features not available in the lower-priced BDP-S360--namely, built-in WiFi and DLNA media streaming. However, this Profile 2.0 player does not provide access to a streaming video-on-demand...

The BDP-S560 lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; The player lacks internal memory, so you must add your own USB device. Plus, the USB port doesn't support movie or...

Sony BDP-S560 review

 

The Sony BDP-S560 is also a Wi-Fi enabled model. But this model lacks the streaming media extras that competing Blu-ray Disc players offer.

It's not the cheapest or the most full-featured, but the Sony BDP-S560 is a good Blu-ray player.

Sneaking in between Sony's budget deck and the wireless BDP-S760 is this Blu-ray spinner. Is it the best of the bunch?

Yet another solid Sony. Not as seductive as some in the range, perhaps, but impossible to dislike

Expert review by:

Sony BDP-S560

 

The Sony BDP-S560 Blu-ray player features a Wi-Fi adapter and BD-Live support, but doesn't appear to be able to match competitors for features.

The BDP-S560 also include on-board decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, but it's lacking the 7.1 analog outputs of its predecessor, the BDP-S550. The BDP-S560 will be available Q3 for AU$549.
