Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Blu-ray players have become more and more ubiquitous in consumer's homes, but the best ones still cost more. But that is not always the case, as Adrienne Maxwell reveals in this review of the Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray player.

All in all, I was quite impressed the BDP-S185 for the money. It's a nice little budget player that would make a great addition to a secondary TV, especially if you're already thinking about adding a streaming media player to said TV. For a price equal...

Sony BDP-S185 review

 

Sony's BDP-S185 is an affordable, ridiculously compact Blu-ray player with full ‘net functionality. Just 290mm wide, principally because it uses an outboard power brick, it's being promoted both as space-saving and energy efficient. This is home...

Convenient form factor; IPTV-rich content portal; good USB playback

Not the quickest deck on the block; no DLNA functionality; no Super Audio CD support

Sony Blu-ray Starter Pack BDP-S185

 

Blu-ray movies always seem to carry a premium over the normal DVD version, so making the leap means first a new player and then to get the best from it, buying Blu-ray movies, Sony here offer a starter pack of a Blu-ray unit with eight Blu-ray movies.

Not content with offering a neat - small - unit Sony get it to perform a range of extras with the BDP S185 such as playing music and viewing Internet via Ethernet, this latter option also gets more features for some movies, however it stubbornly...

Review

Entry-level Blu-ray player with IPTV entertainment extras.

Consumer review by:

Amazing Blu-Ray Player!

 

After reading reviews on many Blu-Ray players this one seemed to be on of the best. And I am so glad I got this one for Christmas. Blu-Ray's look simply outstanding. Clear and crisp picture. Amazing sound. Even standard DVD's look 100% clearer when you...

Loads Blu-Ray's & DVD's fast ; Up-scales DVD's (with HDMI) ; Jaw-dropping picture and sound ; Syncs perfectly with my Sony TV ; Very small and compact ; Easy navigation ; Loads of extras with Internet connection ; Price: $99.99

Starting the player itself is kind of slow ; Shutdown time can be slow ; No WI-FI ; Blu-Ray's start up from beginning of disc each time

Absolute piece of junk!

 

Never again.

Was cheap

I played no more than 10 disks in it before the tray refused to open

Great affordable player

 

Price dropped by $5 a few days after I ordered. I emailed Newegg and explained the situation, knowing that they had no obligation to credit me the difference. They stated that fact, but credited me anyway since I'm a long-time customer (11 years).

The price was outstanding. It has a clean, simple design with only an inoffensive white led shining up indicating it's on. Practically silent and loads Blu-rays decently fast. Video and audio quality are perfect as any halfway-decent Blu-ray player...

YouTube app is clunky to search and navigate with ; Historically for me, Sony has a problem with their stuff lasting--they seem to die before other major brands, On top of that, this is a refurbished unit, so I may have shot myself in the foot with...

Great player

 

My old player died. I set out to find a reliable one that would play DVDs and Blurays don't need apps to get online or post to facebook. Just wanted to watch movies. Simple and effective. LOve it. My Sony Stereo amp is 43 years old and still rocks the...
