Sony BDP-N460

 

Sony basically pioneered Blu-Ray disc technology so it stands to reason that they would be a trusted maker of quality Blu-Ray disc players. However, consumer level Blu-Ray players from Sony and others have historically been slow, clunky and often...

Excellent Picture Quality ; Intuitive, easy-to-use on-screen menus ; Extensive access to on-line media (Video and Audio) ; Superior YouTube interface ; Excellent value

Typical slow load time ; Limited Netflix interface ; HDMI cable not included

Support for YouTube, Netflix and Pandora makes Sony’s BDP-N460 one of the most capable Blu-ray players in its affordable price range.

Sony BDP-N460

 

Sony may be the "face" of Blu-ray, but the company's standalone Blu-ray players have been a step behind those of Panasonic, LG, and Samsung, which featured extensive streaming media functionality early in 2009. The Sony BDP-N460 is Sony's attempt at...

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; streams Netflix, Amazon Video On-Demand, YouTube, Slacker, and NPR; relatively inexpensive given its suite of streaming features; Profile 2.0 compatible; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

No built-in Wi-Fi; lacks onboard storage for BD-Live; no eject button on the remote; many Internet content channels feature outdated content

The Sony BDP-N460's attractive mix of Blu-ray performance, relatively low price, and streaming media options--including Netflix--make it a solid midrange pick, despite some missing features.

Sony BDP-N460 Network Blu-ray Player First Look

 

Sony kind of stunned me with their new BDP-N460 networked Blu-ray player. What was most impressive was the amount of network features available to the player and it's almost mouth-watering price.

Just the Facts In the waterfall of Sony Blu-ray players, the BDP-N460 is a step up from Sony's entry-level players. Aesthetically, it looks nearly identical to the BDP-S360, with a simple glossy black plastic facing that drops down to expose the disc...

Sony BDP-N460 review – excellent quality, missing internal memory and Wi-Fi

 

Sony was the pioneer of the Blu-ray technology but now they have been surpassed by Samsung, LG and Panasonic. The company makes another attempt with BDP-N460 to top the Blu-ray player market. It's streaming services including NPR, Slacker, YouTube,...

Perfect picture quality on Blu-ray movies; video streaming services such as NPR, Slacker, YouTube, Amazon VOD and Netflix; budget-friendly price tag; onboard decoding for DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby True-HD; Profile 2.0 compatible

Lacks onboard Wi-Fi and internal storage for BD-Live; no eject button on remote; outdated contents on some Internet channels

Sony BDP-N460 offers impressive mixture of low price, streaming media options and good Blu-ray performance. The BDP-N460 player does not have eject button on remote, onboard Wi-Fi and internal memory. If you need budget-friendly Blu-ray disc player and...

The back panel includes the requisite HDMI 1.3a output with support for 48-bit Deep Color and x.v. Color (not currently supported by either DVD or Blu-ray), as well as component video and composite video. Audio connections are limited to TosLink,...

When people are first exposed to Blu-ray, the picture quality generally blows them away-as it should-but the improved audio is just as impressive. The Sony internally decodes Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio and sends it via HDMI as PCM. If you own...

Sony BDP-N460 Network Blu-ray Disc PlayerReview

 

Sony's first Netflix-enabled Blu-ray Disc player also delivers Amazon VOD, Slacker, YouTube, Crackle and NPR. (Oh, and it also plays Blu-ray Discs!)

In the end, my issues with the BDP-N460 are largely ergonomic and they shouldn't overshadow the most important fact of all: the BDP-N460 is Sony's most affordable, full-featured Blu-ray player to date. And when you consider the unit's solid audio and...
