Its a very good player, a steal at this price. Iplayer, Youtube etc works very well. One thing - if you can't use an ethernet cable for internet the Sony wireless adapter is a bit of a rip off, a wireless bridge will cost about half the money and does the same thing. Excellent player though. Good find!
#3
This could get hot very quickly, was looking at this player yesterday on amazon, good spec, great features including access to BBC Iplayer, and a killer price at the moment... have some heat my friend.
#4
Cracking deal - many thanks OP, have some H&R.

Mine is on order.

I believe you can use the ethernet port to access video on demand such as iplayer, so do don't need to shell out a further £70 for the Sony wireless adapter.

Regards,

White.

yes was a typo by me should have read "if you can't use ethernet cable"- edited
#6
thanks for clearing that up, was just looking at the ethernet issue myself, fortunately my broadband router and area where I would have this unit are nearby so will use the cable option...
#7
i got what you meant - can't believe how much sony charge for the adaptor - also incase its important to you this machine is not 3d ready and never will be

I could be wrong here, but I honestly can't see 3D catching on in a big way..

i'm not that bothered about 3d yet - think will take a few years to establish itself or go away thats why i bought one of these!

I bought one when this came to HUKD recently.

The video on demand is a fantastic 'extra' to have, although it might be quite a big extra. There are about 12 channels - relevant ones in UK (unless you love US blogs and the like) being:

BBC iPlayer
5 on Demand
YouTube
Lovefilm (direct access)

Quality of iplayer on my 42" Toshiba is the best I've seen by quite a way (and I've had it on my TV in many ways) and the news is that ITV Player and 4od are on the way by summer. So in effect a superb Blu-ray player with full catch up tv on demand built in.

I'm not a Lovefilm subscriber but had a mooch, there's a few hundred titles I guess (don't quote me) and you can watch as many as often for £9.99 a month. 14 day trial + £10 Amazon voucher for new subscribers.

There's more than ITV Player & 4od supposedly on the way - new video on demand channels should be arriving regularly, last night a FIFA something or other section appeared.

For the money I recommend the player - but also for the catch up tv and other video on demand which is thrown in. Oh, upscaling of DVDs is done to a better standard than I am used to too. :)

Not enough content exists in 3D, you could probably watch everything in two days.

3D - one Chuck episode, a handful of movies and some sport filmed but $$$ky will eventually put a sub. on it's 3d channel. We shouldn't have to pay a premium to even get HD in this Country.

HD is standard in the USA. You just wouldn't watch anything else.

There are a few 3D channels in the USA, one is free just like HD.

quick question - i'm keen on getting this player. does this play standard mp4 camcorder footage from usb or disc?
#14
I'm on my way out the door, if nobody has answered this when I get back in an hour or so I'll try just that for you.
#15
thanks, much appreciated....i'm at the point of buying so just need to confirm this
#16
Good deal 3rd time this has dropped in price since release how long before its £100 on here

since when did h become a vowel?

I got this as a reward from CokeZone last month - fantastic product, especially since I paid nothing.

Watched Avatar on it last week and it looked spectacular. Tonight we're watching Iron Man. :thumbsup:

Haven't tried the on demand features yet because of no wi-fi adapter included.

It doesn't have to be a vowel. If it's pronounced as a vowel i.e. a-c-h-DMI you use an. "An HDMI cable" is correct. "A HDMI cable" is not.

The opposite also can be true. University begins with a vowel but you wouldn't say "an university" because it doesn't sound like it starts with a vowel.

:thumbsup:

This player just won the budget BR player group test in the latest version of What HiFi. They said it had the best picture and sound on test, even though it was the cheapest player on test, or thereabouts.

I guessed as much :thumbsup:

Well yes, straight out of the video camera mp4 onto USB stick worked fine for me. Just to tempt you a little more, here is the USB stick adding itself to the menu (very like PS3 here) and showing the on demand channels - well some of them:

And the mp4 files found:

Iphone pics only sorry :)

I even took a photo of the mp4 playing but you wouldn't be able to confirm anything of the sort from such a still image :thinking:

Hope that helps.

Bought this at the start of the week for £142 .... Sods law. Haven't reAlly played in depth yet but DLNA streaming os not yet enabled and is due to be provided on a firmware upgrade in a month which disappointed me as the description is misleading. However I am keeping this and will wait for the streaming capability as Internet tv is excellent and as is bluray picture quality. It is also very slim unlike myself !! Recommended
#25
Yes and the frustrating part as you have correctly said is that the DNLA streaming firmware update is reported to have happened, it took me ages to work out it hadn't. I bought it at £142 too, I hadn't noticed the price drop till you just mentioned it!
#26
HOT DEAL!!

I bought a Panasonic BD60 a few days ago but after seeing this deal (and finding out my panasonic can't bitstream DTS HD) Im going to send that back and order this. Heat!!
#27
If only i had a tv to do this machine justice........

Apologies for the typos above but I was typing that on my iPhone while in town with the kids at the Lord Mayors parade lol. Great player and picture quality good and as said above the aesthetics, look and size, are excellent. The whole GUI closely resembles PS3 so hopefully the future Sony support will mirror PS3's broad compatability with a host of formats although it wont play AAC for me at present off the USB drive :-( . All things said however very pleased and recommended. :thumbsup:

What's the dif between this and the previous model BDPS-360?

yeah anyone know?

yeah anyone know?


I don't know the spec difference, but the 370 is much slimmer (looks around half the height of the 360).
#31
Just read elsewhere that this unit won't play AVI files. Is anybody able to confirm/deny that for me?
#32
Plays AVIs directly from USB memory stick mate, I am currently watching it.

Is the quality good from USB or iplayer?
#36
Iplayer is very impressive by iplayer standards. USB avi is as it is in the original file, no better no worse.

Thanks, sounds excellent, assume i'd need a surround sound system with hdmi for it to work?
#38
Sorry, you have ventured into my specialist area of ignorance, I know next to nothing about sound systems. It has optical out, someone else will know :)

to get hd audio you need an hdmi compatible amp with this machine as only other option is digital/optical which won't carry hd audio but will take dolby digital - hope that helps
