Sony BDP-S490

 

Sony's terrific 3D Blu-ray deck lacks Wi-Fi but still impresses

Eye-catching design, Superb internet content, Slick DLNA streaming, Eye-popping pictures

No built-in Wi-Fi, Won’t play DivX or WMV in HD, Impractical menu system for web content

Sony BDP-S490 review

 

This budget spinner is a Blu-ray stunner

Clear and crisp detail ; natural colour ; 3D playback ; strong sound ; loads of online content

No integrated Wi-Fi

If you're looking for a budget disc-spinner that offers excellent picture quality and also plays 3D films, this is ideal

Sony BDP-S490 3D Blu-ray Player Review

 

Smart Network 3D Blu-ray Player

Untampered 1080p Playback ; Excellent scaling of DVDs ; Impressive handling of interlaced signals ; Lots and lots of VoD Services ; Remote app is very good ; Media streaming works very well - with certain media players ; Price

A bit slow at disc loading - especially DVDs ; Build quality feels a touch flimsy ; Default settings cause a tiny amount of grain reduction
