Sony BDP-S590

 

In the current Blu-ray player market, the winner is decided by inches, not miles. We've seen a wave of affordable (sub-$150) players full of useful features with great performance, and it's the small details that separate the good Blu-ray players from...

Supports 3D. Built-in Wi-Fi. Quick performance

Slight video processing issues. Controls on player feel awkward

The Sony BDP-S590 is a good Blu-ray player, but a few minor quirks hold it back.

The Sony BDP-S590 is a good Blu-ray player, with built-in Wi-Fi, 3D support, and fast performance. It has a few minor video processing issues, and its on-player controls feel flimsy, keeping it from the top-tier. At $129.99, however, it's a solid...

Sony BDP-S590 Blu-ray 3D PlayerReview

 

The Swiss Army Knife of Blu-ray players, packed with surprises for a very affordable price.

Sony's BDP-S590 seems a little on the small side, but wow wee -- they certainly packed a lot into this little player. It offers a mind-boggling amount of entertainment. Of course, it's still a Blu-ray player first and foremost, and it does that very...

Sony BDP-S590

 

Low price and great features combine to make the Sony BDP-S590 a great-value smart Blu-ray player.

Very good DVD/Blu-ray picture performance ; Good range of smart functions ; Excellent value for money ; Wi-Fi for convenient connectivity

Ideally should have force film mode for video processing

In the end, the Sony BDP-S590 is pretty much at the ideal price point and feature level. It has all the basics and most of the advanced stuff to fulfill most people's needs, yet still costs less than AU$200.

Got this at Best buy last night. Was able to set it up to play a dvd in less then 10 mins from box to watching. After the movie I connected the wifi to my network and was able to stream from my network storage with no issues. Nice price point and easy...

One of the main features I want in a Blu-ray player is the streaming media support. DLNA provides streaming from local sources (I have a PVR and would like to watch it in another room). The product packaging listed this player as being DLNA certified....

Best Bluray player that I have owned!

 

This thing is amazing, and has not had any issues in the almost 2 years that I've owned it. We went through 4 cheaper Bluray players from Samsung and Visio in 2 years prior to buying this Sony, due to them stopping to function after 6 months or so. The...

Some minor issues

 

It has a lot of quirks but overall I am satisfied and haven't had any major issues since activating the unit 6 months ago.

The functionality is very good as far as menus and preloaded apps. DVDs play well and the 3D quality is excellent. Remote is easy to understand and it has dedicated controls for Netflix and Sony Entertainment Network ; Setting up with a network...

It has an auto shut off feature that you cannot disable and It has to reconnect to the network every time it is turned on which slows down using the unit and one connection function requires that you acknowledge that is completed connection before it...

Beyond expectations.!

 

I had to bump up my internet package but it eas well worth it.

I had to add this from my original feedback ; Just fantastic. Now I found out you can plug in a usb keyboard

This product is so good I'm not taking an egg off for the lame remote. Whoever designed it should go back to his paper route. All small buttons crammed together. Until we get used to it, we're using a flashlight. The lettering is even smaller. Probably...
