I got one from RS Romford Sunday last. Thought the nine quid super care was a bargain also. Thought it naughty it was still marked 99.99 in the shop. Luckily I had seen this RS price on the Web. Dont know how to post or I might have posted this myself earlier. Naturally I have voted hot.

Got this player in Australia with 4 blu-rays and a HDMI cable for $200AUD for the old man, plays pretty much everything, I've also read that it can be made region free for DVDs (or comes region free for some countries) but not sure on Blu-rays, a little google search should turn up some info, "Sony BDP-S370 region free" in google should do it (not sure if it's against rules to link to that kind of thing so I won't). Voted hot.

Still WAAAAAAY over-priced
Can see the price dropping, although they're desperate to keep it at this level. (They've even dropped the couple of free blu-rays)

Can be made region free after using a universal remote control hack. Try VideoHelp.com.

Top Player - even at this price!

They've recnetly launched Sony's VoD service (Qriocity) and if you sign up (offer until 31/01/11) you get a £15 credit. Well worth it.

If only it did DVD-Audio as well it would be perfect.

I bought this recently (at this price) on the last deal.
Very impressed - DVD playback looks good (much better than my cheapy ebuyer dvd unscaler) and blu ray was excelent as expected. The media player stuff is easy to use. Standard iplayer is SO much better than the Wii equivalent that I was shocked. HD iplayer struggled with my 3mb max net connection when I tested but the SD iplayer was so good that it isnt an issue.

Note - I'm using home plugs to connect it to the modem router & it works fine.

In comparison with DVD players after 5 years on the market of course, thought that was obvious.
I fully agree with PhilK, no idea why the prices of these things are being kept so high, it cant be demand, as i said they have been out for half a decade. Its hardly new tech and manufacturers have surely managed to slash production costs after all this time. bd rom drives for the PC can be bought for 40 (still overpriced), they are not all that different to the bluray players.

I can live without one until they become reasonable in price.

Doesnt do wifi without a £75 dongle. Better to get a wifi enabled machine.

You can use a separate wireless bridge that shouldn't cost you all that much. At a guess £20-30 should get you something cheap and cheerful. Failing that homeplugs are fairly cheap.

Am I really the only one on HUKD that thinks that if we wait for something to hit its lowest price, then the next level of technology has either just appeared or will the following day and then we'll then be waiting for that price to hit rock-bottom - missing out on the fun in the process?

Personally, I'd rather go for something at what I feel is the middle price and enjoy its benefits, knowing that it still has some life in it, than wait until it's as cheap as chips.:)
#16
actually this player has been in this price tag for a while on Amazon, I think!

if you use quidco you can get it for £80 at bestbuy.co.uk delivered

Cashback is paid at the pre-VAT rate, making it £84 delivered... that's IF they actually pay the cashback, which judging by the feedback I've read is debateable.

Yes, albeit with a bit of a "clunk". If you can imagine trying to type words with nothing but the remote control to use, you can imagine the limitations.

Having said that: fantastic player. Worth it for it's iPlayer capabilities alone.

it was £79.95 just after Christmas.

This is a great blu-ray player. Signed up for lovefilm just so i could try the streaming service and I can't fault the iplayer (Best device for iplayer I've seen). Also remember it does DLNA - You'd £80 for a device that just does that so I think its a bargain.

Only the first 7500 people who sign up and enable their devices get the £15 credit. Do you know how much is it to rent a movie through qriocity?
#27
Anyone who says this is overpriced is having an absolute laugh. This in in the top 3 blu ray players in Stuff magazine, alongside ones costing 5 times as much. Fantastic quality, tiny, quiet, and has iplayer, youtube, demand 5, and love film apps. This is the only blu-ray player to buy for under 200 quid, let alone 90

You can download an app for free for ipod, iphone, ipad and android phones that turn your phone into a remote control, inc a full qwerty keyboard

Oh no you don't!
This was restricted to the first 7,500 applicants. I applied a couple of weeks ago and haven't received anything.
The BDP-S370 is a great piece of kit and a bargain at this price.
Some of Audio levels on Blu-rays are appallingly low, not sure if this is DTS or 5.1? but can hardly hear them, has anyone experienced this and found a work around? I've got mine connected by HDMI to my EX503. Tried Sony but they couldn't help!

I also cant believe that people are moaning about the price of this. I bought one of these from RS at the weekend with the 5 yr warranty for a total price of a ton. I'm happy. Wireless wasn't an issue for me as i already have that facility through me Bravia tv. Ooh, get me X)

Yes, these may well eventually squeeze under 80 quid but its all about if you want it now or not. Just the same as people who pay 40 quid for a game on release day or those who prefer to wait a year and get it for under half the price. Either way, your choice and both parties are happy if thats what you wanted.

Feel free to ignore a clear market-leading BD model and award winner (at a good price currently) and get yourself down to Tesco and get a nice little Technika :D

£90 isn't at all unreasonable for what's regarded as a very good BD player, considering decent DVD players are still £40-50 at least. It's a Sony after all, it's never going to be the cheapest on the market.

BD-ROM drives for PCs are very different, seeing as they're just the drive. There's no hardware processing, no outer casing etc. as there is on a proper player.

You can complain if the deal is rubbish, but you can't complain just because you're a cheapskate.
