Sony BDP-S3200 review: Sony's Blu-ray player shows its age

 

Let's say you have $100 and are looking for a way to get movies onto your television. You could go for the Sony BDP-S3200 with its 200 streaming services and Blu-ray playback, or you could go for an upstart like the new Amazon Fire TV .

The Sony BDP-S3200 offers a high number of streaming services and will play most forms of physical disk; DLNA streaming, Miracast and onboard "super" Wi-Fi add to the unit's flexibility; the cost of entry is fairly low.

The XMB interface is looking tired in the face of streamlined offerings from competitors; accessing your content and navigating long lists of streaming services is very slow; there are some slight image quality hiccups in Blu-ray playback; the player...

The Sony BDP-S3200 will play your Blu-rays just fine but it doesn't do enough to embrace streaming media like its competitors.

"Not a great streamer"

Plays DVDs Well Enough, Crackle Moviea, Better Remote Design, Price

Sony's Own Apps Such As "SnagXtreme" Stutter and Flicker and Eventually Freeze

This is my first Blu Ray player. I am very satisfied with the preloaded apps and the clarity of the picture.

Super BD player

 

This Sony BD Player works as advertised. The built-in WI-FI receives very well and I rarely get any stutters - even with another HDTV on and a computer going at same time. Picture quality on a 60Hz Sony 42" HDTV is teriffic. Load times are relatively...
