Sony BDV-E870 review


For those looking for a one-stop home cinema solution, affordable all-in-one systems such as this will always appeal. And the new breed do much more than just squirt out Blu-ray pictures (including 3D) and 5.1 sound – this black plastic ensemble will...

The BDV-E870 uses Sony’s XrossMediaBar interface, which should make navigating its extensive features a stress-free affair for most

The speaker array struggles to deliver any real midrange. There’s a gap between the deep-sounding and room-filling sub and the trebly-sounding surrounds. At least the diddly centre channel still manages to convey clean and clear dialogue

Sony BDV-E870 - 3D Experience On A Small Budget


There are many home theatre systems in the market, each with plenty of features but there are very few Blu-ray home theatres. Sony has gone one step ahead and launched the BDV-E870, a Blu-ray home theatre system with a 5.1 channel speaker system. Well,...

The Sony BDV-E870 sells for Rs. 39,990, which sounds like a lot of money but you must consider the fact that it sells with a 3D-capable Blu-ray player and a complete home theatre audio setup. We're not terribly impressed by the audio quality of the...

Good interface ; Online media options ; Solid pictures ; Decent audio

Mid-range not very clear ; Budget build quality ; No HDMI input

Sony BDV-E870 review


Once again a Sony system proves that it's capable of stunning pictures, but in the case of the '870, the sound doesn't match up

Bold, exciting sound ; crisp, well defined images ; great online content

Speakers lack subtlety ; sub struggles to integrate ; no built-in wi-fi

Capable of top-drawer picture quality, but sound can’t match the best

The BDV-E870 Blu-ray system continues the great work of its cheaper E370 sibling.

Easy installation, Gorgeous sound quality, Excellent range of content

No HDMI inputs, Sound lacks power, Chunky box

Great sound

Poor start up and shut down responsiveness ; Inability to cope when switching from DVD to TV in terms of sound

Sony BDV-E870


Easy to set-up, updating and all the internet/digital tv extras are great (as long as your internet router is close to unit)

The remote I think looks dated and plain as does the display on the unit

Sony BDV-E870


Works seamlessly with my phone, via the DLNA server ; Very good sound quality ; Energy efficient when switched off - uses hardly any electricity at all

On-screen keyboard via the remote is annoying to use - a return to the days of old mobile phone text messaging

Sony BDV-E870


The sleek black design looks even better in the flesh ; The tallboy speakers can be split & wall mounted if you so wish ; The surround sound for an "all in the box" system is awesome ; A real bargain for the money ; Packed with loads of online features

None so far although I haven`t got around to exploring all the features yet, but I`m sure that I wont find any
