Sony BDP-S470


Overall, the Sony BDP-470 is a good entry-level Blu-Ray player that boasts several impressive features but lacks the quality and performance that consumers expect out of a Sony product. Several users reported horror stories of defective players getting...

Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray PlayerReview


Sony's cheapest Blu-ray 3D player, the BDP-S470, gets drunk, tries to impress, and ends up hating on some projectors.

For TV owners, the BDP-S470 is a solid Blu-ray player. It has a slick and reasonably fast operation, tons of streaming options, and has a tiny attractive form factor. The prices I've seen on Amazon also show it to be a great deal. But if you have a...

Sony BDP-S470


The new Sony BDP-S470 is Sony's first standalone 3D Blu-ray player to hit the market. But unlike the BDP-S770 which will come 3D-ready straight out of the box, the midrange BDP-S470 will require a firmware update to support 3D playback. That update is...

The launch of 3D players such as the BDP-S470 at a competitive price level by Sony is a step forward in hastening mass market adoption of 3D. But with additional costs involved in upgrading to a 3D HDTV and special 3D glasses it remains to be seen how...

Sony BDP-S470 3D Blu-ray player


Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray player review: an affordable Blu-ray player with 3D capabilities and Bravia Internet Video streaming

Excellent 1080p video quality in 2D and 3D, user-friendly interface, attractive design

Virtually identical to the Sony BDP-S370 (which retails for $70 less)

The Sony BDP-S470 is an affordable 3D Blu-ray player that ticks nearly every box on a videophile's wish-list. That said, there are cheaper options available for those who aren't interested in 3D Blu-ray, such as Sony's BDP-S370 Blu-ray player.

Sony BDP-S470


Is it time we abandoned the 2D Blu-ray player? At this low price Sony's BDP-S470 makes a serious bid at being not just an excellent 3D Blu-ray player, but a fantastic value all-rounder that could quickly see the rug pulled from under non-3D players....

3D-ready, low price, simple design, digital file support, HD images

Wi-Fi adaptor required, limited networking

Found for as low as £130 online, Sony’s BDP-S470 makes for a wonderful 2D Blu-ray alone - with 3D support virtually free. Excellent picture quality makes sure of that, but its superb user interface chucks in not just all-round digital file support from...

Sony BDP-S470 review


3D Blu-ray, DivX HD and BBC iPlayer for a notch over £100; Sony presents the moon on a stick

Compact design ; Plays 3D Blu-ray discs ; 2D & 3D Picture quality ; BBC iPlayer & Lovefilm ; Price

No built-in Wi-Fi ; Poor networking

Whether or not 3D as a format has a future, and especially a present, in your home is up to you. The so-called hunger among consumers for 3D certainly isn't obvious to us, though Sony – one of the third dimension's biggest promoters – is seeking to get...

Sony BDP-S470


The outstanding Sony BDPS470 3D Blu-ray player proves that you don't have to pay a premium for usable features and stellar performance.

Excellent audio and video ; IPTV offering is best in show ; MKV playback ; 3D Blu-ray capability ; Cheap as

Minimal on-board controls ; Hooking up to a receiver gives better surround sound

With less than a week to go of 2010 we've finally found our favourite disk player of the year. It does everything you'd need it to and at just AU$300 it seems hard to justify spending more on a Blu-ray player. What this player doesn't do, you won't...
