Sony DVP-NS50P

Great basic player


If you're looking for a high performance DVD for your elaborate home theater system you may want to look elsewhere. If you need a decent DVD player for a simple home theater or just with a TV set I highly recommend this one as long as small childern ...

Good performance, easy to set up and use, comes with a universal remote.

Awkward size, slow start-up, material is a little flimsy.

Sure it's a Sony but will it hold together? didn't.


Well, this will be a non technical look at how the Sony DVP-NS5OP/S Dvd player has performed to date. Purchased mainly because I got tired of running back and forth to Walmart to exchange yet another of their famous brand fiasco’s (3 Norcent's and ...

Product Specifications

Affordable, functional, reliable - Sony's DVP-NS50P/B DVD Player meets all your basic and advanced DVD playback1 needs. Not only can you listen and watch DVDs with superb quality picture and sound, you can also playback JPEGs, CDs, and MP3 songs. Sony makes it simple with easy-to-use features and compatibility. With the DVP-NS50P/B, you also have Sony technology features. Precision Cinema Progressive Technology provides sharper images for the best viewing experience possible. The Precision Drive 3 System lets you enjoy your collection of DVDs even longer by correcting errors on warped DVD discs. Great Sony technologies at a great price - only from Sony. Other DVD players detect image changes at the scan line level-Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive (PCP) system detects them at the pixel level. The picture is more faithful to the source-whether film or video-because separate, optimized algorithms are used to handle the differing pixel behavior. Separate algorithms are also used to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are virtually free from motion artifacts. Past generations of Precision Drive systems were only able to compensate for warped discs by moving the entire optical block, which took more time and limited the amount of correction possible. Sony's new Precision Drive 3 system simplifies the process by moving the lens-instead of the entire optical block-for faster and more accurate error correction in DVD discs. Playing MP3 Music on a Sony DVD player is easy. Just insert an MP3 encoded disc and press MENU. A blue screen pops up to display your folders. Scroll down the list using the remote or front panel cursor control to select the folder you want. The green files screen pops up to show the files in the selected folder. Select the file you want to hear and you're done. Finding music couldn't be easier.
