With Full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema video output, the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray disc player outputs a stunning film-like image, just as the director intended. And with Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD supported; the audio reproduction is just as involving and high definition as the picture.
The Sony S300's 1080p DVD Upscale feature takes your standard definition DVDs and processes them to give them a high definition look, so youll still enjoy viewing your existing movie collection. You might even revisit some of the old classics you havent watched in a while!

For film fans in a hurry to catch the latest blockbuster, Bravia Theatre Sync allows you to turn on simultaneously your Sony TV and your Sony home cinema system, by pressing just one button on your remote control.

A guide to Blu-ray Disc technology
Blu-ray laser technology gives you much greater storage on just one disc. For example, one Blu-ray disc holds the equivalent of 35 CDs or 5 DVDs worth of storage. Its the same size as a DVD disc, but by using a shorter wavelength and a narrower (blue) laser beam spot, it can hold greater capacity.

You can get this for £85 from PC World if you see the link below...

buying one as xmas present for girlfriends dad - hot.

Edit, scratch that, just realised this is the model with hundreds of problems, long load times, firmware bricking the machine. So now I probably won't buy.

Shame, thought I had sorted xmas out early!

great find - voted hot :thumbsup:

V Nice !! Voted hot!

Great price, though the S350 deal gave you a much more refined and complete player for just £130 but that seemed to be a misprice that lasted only a few hours!

Voted hot.

I seriously doubt they'll be that low.

I got the Samsung BD-P1500 from Richer Sounds for £160 last month. Not bad money for a fast player (Good disc access speeds). BD Live support and firmware updates via the built-in Ethernet socket.

every review site i have looked at has said this is a poor player with a start up time of 5 mins and lack of hd audio output one even said that you should turn on the player and go and make a cuppa while you wait for it to warm up before it will play

Because of the release of the S350 this player goes for under £100 second hand on the AV forums now. Ebay should do the same but there's a lot of idiots on ebay :p

I can't think why you'd have this next to a PS3 though, the PS3 is more refined than old players like this - e.g. the instantaneous load times the PS3 has and the constant ongoing improvements via firmware.

All gone!

Laser Disc all over again. Blu-Ray only has between 2-8% of DVD market :(

exactly what i was thinking, what a waste of money :w00t:

Decent BR player - I have one. Very slow startup (takes 3 minutes before it'll respond to any button press) but faultless picture. Firmware updates available on Sony website (I had to update mine) - but beware, at the moment it's only BluRay 1.1 compatible. I'm sure Sony will release an update though in the future.
#28
Kin-ell, the prices for these are dropping quick.

This time next year, probably be on the shelves for £40?

while i dont have one ....yet , i partially agree with your statement .... it will NEVER take over from dvd...... but eh big difference between LD and BR is that BR also plays another format ( standard dvd ) ....LD was just 1 format

BR is great, the picture quality is miles better than DVD with it being HD. But BR will only gain customers if BR Discs come in price, at the mo they are still expensive but some titles are worth the extra for viewing in full HD.
#31
of course bluray will take over, it just takes time... same happened over dvd / vhs
#32
These blu ray players are VERY VERY slow, and don't have great compatability for disks. In my opinion spend a lil more and get a samsung bdp1500 or sony BDP-S350
banned#33
These players were renound with problems, and with the release of bdps350 and 550 these players are now coming down in price. So could be possible after crimbo that the prices will drop because they are now clearance models :)

just because something is technically better doesnt mean it will be the market leader ..

cd's ? sacd and dvd audio are technically miles better ... they have almost no market share

I don't think BR will take over DVD because the mass market is happy with DVD. But that doesn't mean it will suddenly disappear like some people seem to think!

The BR audience is slowly but surely always increasing and as prices of players and media continue to drop, again slowly but surely, it will only become more widely adopted.

The potential market is huge with all of the PS3s out there. When the discs prices fall to under £10 I expect a lot more people with PS3s and HD TVs won't mind paying a little extra for the BD versions of the latest films. Right now media prices are far too high, but then it still costs a lot for blank BR discs. Remember when blank DVD lists cost almost £10 for a single a disc when they first came out?

I think after the Beta/VHS/Laserdisc thing people were unsure about leaping into new technology, if you remember when DVD first came out only the real gadget heads bought DVD players and it took about 4 years after release until they came down to a reasonable price and people started buying into it. I reckon with the recession looming these'll drop heavily (50%) in price by the end of next year and people will start adopting the standard.
