A Review Of The Sony BDP-S6500 4K Upscaling Blu Ray Player


Sony has finally released the BDP-S6500, its brand spanking new Blu-ray player which boasts a significant improvement from its predecessor and comes with heaps of new features (some more useful than others). At a slightly elevated price in comparison...

4K Ultra HD upscaling ; Immersive viewing with 3D capability ; Stream online content fast via built-in super Wi-Fi ; Control TV right from your smartphone with TV SideView ; Dual Core Processor for faster operation

Uninspiring, bland design ; Lack of TV apps ; Issues with Mimecast mirroring compatibility

Overall, the BDP-S6500 is worth the price if you can overlook it’s small but niggling deficiencies. The design isn’t the most creative or impressive, but amongst all your other gleaming TV gadgets, does it really matter that much? With the BDP-S6500...

Sony BDP-S6500 Review


The Sony BDP-S6500 provides excellent video and audio quality and a handful of streaming apps. Premium features like 4K upscaling and 2D to 3D conversion give it added value over entry-level players.

You can download an app that lets you use your smartphone as a remote.

The built-in apps take a long time to load.

With its impressive video and audio quality, connectivity options, and built-in apps, Sony’s BDP-S6500 is a premium Blu-ray player that fits nicely in a home theater setup.

Sony BDP-S6500 review


The Sony BDP-S6500 Blu-Ray player is a top-quality disk player, using Sony's 4K upscaling chip to deliver rich, detailed video to a UHD TV. It's 3D-capable, includes built-in Wi-Fi and ethernet connections, and also gives you access to Smart TV via the...

The Sony BDP-S6500 Blu-Ray player is a well-specified player, and is now available at a very competitive price. Just about everything you could want is included here, at least until the next generation of UHD Blu-Ray players becomes available in 2016 .

Sony BDP-S6500


The BDP-S6500 is Sony's range-topping Blu-ray player and the successor to last year's BDP-S6200. At £150 it's pricier than your average player but it gets you a full set of premium features, including 4K upscaling, built-in super Wi-Fi and network...

Excellent picture quality ; Slick, friendly operating system ; Plays FLAC and MKV via network

Pedestrian design ; Build quality ; Missing catch-up TV apps

Sony BDP-S6500 Blu-ray Player Review


This flagship Blu-ray performs great with both discs and streamed video content but is the Ultra HD scaling really worth the extra?

Perfect with Blu-ray ; Excellent with DVD ; Can detect 24p from streaming services ; Good range of app

Questionable whether 4K scaling is of any benefit ; Remote feels cheap for flagship product

The Sony BDP-S6500 is another excellent Blu-ray disc player able to handle both two and three dimensional Blu-ray discs with no issues whatsoever. It also handles DVDs brilliantly, too, with crisp, well defined scaling and, if you need it, the S6500...

Nice little blu ray player!


We have had our player for around 3 weeks now & have watched a couple of movies on it. The quality is reasonably good but I wouldn't say it upscale to 4K quality which I was led to believe? Otherwise does what it says on the tin.

All you could want - almost


This is a great player. Simple to set up and use. A clear interface that even a Luddite such as I can use. Picture quality is great (although I cannot rate the 4K as I only have an HD TV). Works with my Panasonic TV and (clearly) my Sony TV. Discs a...
