Sony BDV-EF200

 

Sony's 3D-ready Blu-ray system offers some great features at an affordable price, but does its sound quality cut the mustard?

Picture quality ; Two HDMI inputs and two USB ports ; Excellent range of online content

Lightweight build quality ; Harsh sound quality ; Dull design

Also on the back are an optical digital audio input, analogue stereo input and composite video output, plus an Ethernet port, FM antenna input and a second USB port that can be used to play back digital media or connect a USB wireless LAN adapter...

Sound is excellent Multi Region on the DVD side, remote function that control the TV.

Can not run TV through for non-film DVD/Blu-Ray sound synchronisation is way out. All of the remote control function do not work?

Works well with our Sony TV as the "Theatre" button on the TV switches on/off the unit.

Haven't thought of any - so far.

Sony BDV-EF200

 

Bought this to provide a better sound than the standard Sony TV. It works well. No frills just greatly improved sound.It was good value for money.

Not being an expert in setting up such equipment I still have difficulty with the remotes and in my attempts to get all 'instructions' on to one of them. I have yet to 'sort out' the imperfections, probably my fault,but won't attempt this until after...

Price. Features

Does not have all the TV player sites available (eg ITV player). Very fiddly controls, and it is a shame that the TV has to be on to use certain facilities (eg. You should be able to play music from the iPod without having TV on).
