Just picked up a Sony Blu-Ray player - the BDP-S370 from Costco for £69.99 (+VAT) = £82.24.

It is on offer at £30 off the normal price until 19th September.

I've bought it as a BBC iPlayer streamer!

Its got great reviews, and this is an excellent price.

HOT....

Has loads of other streaming services too such as youtube, Demand 5 etc.... (the mrs watches home and away on it and it looks HD even though it's over the net)...

The best player on the market today, with full MKV HD support over USB, upnp, DLNA media streaming over network....

We have 3 of these and never looked back, the media playback is even better than the WD TV Live

BARGAIN BUY

It's a brilliant machine and the iplayer is an excellent component part. Word is that itvplayer might be coming soon. Buy Monsters Inc bluray for about a tenner, just to show your mates, the picture quality is stunning!
#3
Agreed. Great player
#4
Does it need a wifi dongle to do the iplayer stuff, or is that supplied?
#5
Prepare for the heat, hot deal.

It needs a special Sony dongle for wifi. But you can just connect it to a network cable and it works fine. Brilliant player IMHO.

It needs either a direct cable connection or an £80 Sony specific dongle for wireless. Luckily mine sits next to my router because I wouldn't be paying £80 for their dongle.

Nice find.
#9
Great thanks! Have some heat.

I have a BDP-360 but will whack that on Ebay and buy this one up for the iplayer...
#10
Thats great, looked at these the other week at costco and they were around the £150 mark including VAT.

Tempting to buy 2 or 3 at this price, the only thing that puts me off is that I have read you cant get mkv's streaming from a DLNA device
#11
Do Costco have plenty of stock do we know?

My local is Bristol - but not sure whether to make a special trip or wait til the wife wants to go later i the week...

Great price, It is also easy to make DVD multi region (not blue ray), you just need a £20 multi remote.

I got the S570 and i must admit i can't fault it


You can also do it with a Logitech Harmony remote control.

You can also get this which works with the S370 as a wireless dongle, after I read it on the net. I can confirm that it works as I just purchased one. http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=101163

Of course a PS3 would cost and awful lot more though, so it's not really worth the extra expense if all you want to do is watch DVDs, Blu-Rays, Video files and stream on demand services. This is a very hot deal if you ask me.

you can use a one4all remote from argos for like £8. info on avforums.



as for wireless - it's a bit of a pain with this. i use a £3 ethernet cable and works much more reliably especially since im always torrenting. the wi fi doesn't like you sharing your internet with anything BUT the blu-ray!

i've also got a 2tb hard drive linked to it to play MKV's off. Problem is the blu ray player only recognises FAT32 systems, and they in turn don't accept any file larger than 4gb. Simplest solution - download MKVToolnix. open file in that, go on global, click split after : type in 4gb and it splits the entire thing within minutes - even on a very modestly powered laptop like mine. Keeps the various subtitles and audio tracks complete.

the upscaling is way better on this though. although ps3 is getting 3d upgrade whereas he s370 wont. the s470 will i beleive. depends what you're after

my little one watches over the hedge all the time and it looks much more detailed with this player, had a S350 before. sold for £75 on ebay and got this off amazon a few month ago

I picked up a 2nd hand one for about the same price as this.
Sticking it in the bedroom, the only nuisance is that it doesnt do .mkv files unless you stream it on PS3 media server (which i do anyway).
Also youtube on the PS3 isnt great as it doesnt update the flash player often.

tempted to go and get one, i it possible to get a trial membersip at costco?
ill be heading to bristol if you can!

a total and utter bargain
#22
This is a great offer but Costco is only for the Trade and not for the general public. Is there anyway one can get a membership without being a member of the trade?
#23
Great find, also 5yr warranty with Costco, can get general puplic membership, think its about £29 plus VAT.
#24
Superb player and ridiculously good price. I paid £130 for mine not that long ago.
#25
anyone from Bristol with a membership fancy doing me a favour?
#26
PS Limit is 2 per customer
#27
Great price!
Bought on if these from Play a couple of months ago for £99 and it is brilliant!
Remember, you can use an Ethernet cable connected to your Router for Internet connectivity, you don't need to buy the Wireless dongle.
Luckily my Router is next to the TV so no need for Wireless or a very long cable!
#28
my brother got one from costco in derby on monday 6th sept and it showed up on his receipt as £99.99 and then the vat got added on at the end so that made it £117.

that was with the discount coupon. anyone else verify this?? or has the price come down in the past day or two.

they were stacked high on pallets so i think their expecting to shift a few.

You don't need to be in trade, they have two memberships, Trade and Non Trade. I'm a member, you just pay a yearly membership fee, thats all.

is membership at costco worth it?

Without doubt, I save a fortune every year buying random things in bulk like nappies, toilet rolls etc - just shove what I don't need in the loft, you can get toys at christmas time, things like steak and chicken etc are cheaper, margarine, milk, fruit and veg all pretty cheap to be fair - the odd item you will find cheaper in Tesco etc when its buy one get one free but often even those offers don't work out as cheap as Costco prices.. Love the place!

surely you can use any usb wireless dongle, unless sony have restricted it which wouldnt surprise me

some things are cheap but not all....sometimes convenient as whilst busy its not a scrum like asda or tesco...they also sell stuff that asda, etc dont sell and alot of it is better quality

some big advantages are that if you buy something, say a tv you get a 5 warranty, only john lewis match that....

ive also heard that unlike JL imk told if its failed after say 4 years 11 months old theyll refund you or swap it.....not tried that though

what a surprise, so much for progress...total joke.....oh hold on im gonna build my own road and airport like eveyone else....i wouldnt mind but to then charge £70 for dongle you can buy for £8 is criminal...especially as they cost pennies to make...but then sony have a good track record on this and its why alot of av enthuisasts were keen on hd-dvd winning and not blu ray as they hate sony and their overcharging - look at their memory sticks

Which device do you have to tell the Harmony it is to unlock it?
#38
It seems ridiculous that you can get this for £82 and then have to pay an unbelievable £70 for the USB dongle to go with it if you need wireless. One is good value for money the other is a rip off…
#39
Great deal. The sign in the store shows that it will be £117 after discount, but it is £82 at the checkout. Bought one and returned it from an old receipt when I bought it at £117 last month. Thanks!
