Sony BDP-S790 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

The Sony BDP-S790 Blu-ray player comes packed with features, some of which, many consumers may not need. Adrienne Maxwell reviews the Blu-ray player to see how these features stack up in the real world.

The BDP-S790 is a "smart" Blu-ray player with access to many video- and music-on-demand services, including Netflix, VUDU, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, Skype, Pandora, and more. Wired and built-in wireless network connections are available...

The only analog connection is a basic A/V output with stereo audio. There are no multichannel analog audio outputs ; It lacks internal memory to store BD-Live content ; The Web browser is slow and often froze

The Sony BDP-S790 offers good BD/DVD performance and is a full-featured player that supports current and upcoming technology trends, like 4K, 3D, and smart TV. Its price is on par with other new Blu-ray players that offer 4K upscaling. However,...

GOOD GEAR GUIDE - EDITOR'S CHOICE

Expert review by : Campbell Simpson (goodgearguide.com.au)

Sony BDP-S790 3D Blu-ray player

 

This Blu-ray player works with next-generation 4K TVs, and is powerful and speedy

Excellent features ; Class-leading connectivity ; Fast operation

4K is unnecessary, at the moment ; Web browser is mediocre ; Long text input is a chore

Sony's latest, best Blu-ray player is a little pricier than the competition, but it has a few features that make it stand out from the crowd. We think Sony's hit a winner with the BDP-S790's speed and diverse range of features.

Sony BDP-S790

 

Sony's range-topping Blu-ray deck is the first with 4K upscaling

Generous feature list ; Stunning pictures ; Slick operating system

No DivX support ; Menu not ideal for web content selection ; Not cheap

They’re joined by two digital audio outputs – one coaxial, one optical – and analogue stereo output for good measure. Composite video out, Ethernet and a second USB port make up the remainder. That’s pretty much all bases covered, unless you’re looking...
