Don't think I've seen it being any cheaper than this. They also have the more powerful BDP-s570 at £149.95, same price as the pre-Xmas VAT back sale.

Sony Blu-ray goes 3D with the introduction of the Sony BDPS470.

Featuring the latest type of HDMI socket, the BDPS470 is compatible with 3D TVs, making it the perfect partner for your 3D TV. But it doesn't end with 3D compatibility. In terms of design, features and functionality, Sony has made other great improvements to their latest Blu-ray masterpiece. New to the BDPS470 is the option of connecting to the Internet wirelessly or via the traditional Ethernet cable. Simply add a wireless dongle and your BDPS470 can integrate with your home network and "talk" to other components in the DLNA enabled loop. In conjunction with this there's full access to the BBC iPlayer and BRAVIA Internet Video for access to online video content such as YouTube. In short, there's much more you can do with a budget Blu-ray player than just playing Blu-rays and DVDs these days!

Got an iPhone or iPod Touch? Then you can take control of the BDPS470 with a special App and wireless dongle. Use the touch screen to view disc information or find YouTube video. Find out more about your Blu-ray discs by searching the Entertainment Database Browser using Gracenote technology.

For all the improvements in functionality, don't forget that the BDP-S470 is Blu-ray player - and a great one at that! Playback quality of all formats is every bit as good as you'd expect from a Sony with Sony's Precision Drive technology lending a hand to correct scratched or warped discs. As ever, the full 1080p output and HDMI interface give stunning levels of clarity and digital HD surround sound for an unparalleled cinema experience.

Thanks to Sony's Xross Media Bar, using the BDP-S470 is easy. With a boot up time of just 3 seconds and a 2 seconds tray eject, it's also quicker than ever loading up a film. BRAVIA Sync means that if you already have a Sony TV you can link to that for remote control integration.

With DNLA and 3D TV compatibility, the Sony BDPS470 is all set for the best in entertainment both now and in the future.

Only the player I assume. You'll still need some glasses a sync transmitter....and some 3D movies (if you have the TV already).

I would think there`s a good chance that if you`ve got the tv, you`ve already got the glasses and transmitter, especially as they are syncd to the tv , not the player

Heat added - a great player even in "non-3d"

If you sign up to their VIP club you get another £10 off when bought in store

Very good deal and, as has been said all over this place, really great players.

Don't bother with the S570, get this one!

I have the S570 and, as far as I can see, all it has over this is built in wifi and BD info memory. The first is not very good (hard wire ethernet or a decent bridge is far more stable/necessary) and if you want the memory you can cover that with a £10 flash drive

If you don't have a 3D TV, you are better saving even more money and just buy the S370 instead.
#7
not sure if this suffers the same whining as the s370, but just so u know updating the firmware on the 370 helps alot

The only hesitation I have towards these Sony players is that they are far too compact! I want a substantially deeper machine to be able to stack my CD player and then Turntable above them

I paid £110 for the 370 (the next model down) and this was £150 or so at the time - voted hot

The S370 seems to be £99.99 everywhere at the moment tho so for an extra £19.95 it might be worth future proofing

Get some MDF cut at B&Q and create a plinth shelf behind these players to soak up the extra depth, unless you have an open hi-fi rack it won't be seen within a cabinet.

Good point, but there again what is future proofing these days! By the time I am thinking about going the 3D TV route (if at all) how much will 3D Blu Ray Players cost and with what extra features over this!

If you get one, it is worth opening an account with Sony's pay per view film chanel, Qriocity.

They offer a £15 voucher. It is supposedly limited to the first 7,500 applicants , but I got one just last week.

As they only stream basic sound channels , I'd always rather buy a BD/DVD, but as it was free, I was able to see if it was worth getting discs of some of the later movies

Thanks for the kind advice. I haven't got any cabinets at all as I have everything stacking from the floor up. Most space-saving solution. Can't manage to pick any decent looking cabinets that please the missus, go with the decor while at the same time within my budget.

I bought the bdp-s370 recently, mainly to stream itunes, photos and videos from a NAS.

I'd hoped it would play all the formats my PS3 can, but it didn't, so I took it back to Richer's and they gave me a refund.

It seemed like a good enough player though, but just be aware that if you intend to stream from a NAS it just doesn't do the job..

Google - bdp-s470 "there is no playable file", all models are the same.

Eh? So why would you have bought the glasses and sync on their own? I'd say it is more likely that you bought a 3D accessory pack with your 3D TV. In December they were doing the pack for £250 with a new TV which included glasses, sync, 5 movies and this player. The glasses and sync on their own are going to set you back £250 now.

All I'm saying is that if you don't have any 3D equipment with your 3D TV it is probably going to be more cost effective to buy the pack. And definitely would be if you can get the pack for £250.

I just bought the S370 from Bestbuy for £99.99 and it is fabulous. Iphone app remote works a treat and i connected it to the internet by cable and it downloads youtube and bbc iplayer as well as other site.
Well worth the money and a well built player if you don'y have 3D.

Some 3D TV does not require a transmitter and there's a good chance that some people have bought a 3D TV package with glasses only and without a blu-ray player for a good price.

Built in wireless is the reason I plan to go for the 570. Worth it for the extra 40 quid I think as the wireless dongle costs £70 ish and having wires around the house is messy :(

I`m sorry, I`m struggling to see your point.I am suggesting that most people who have bought a 3d tv or projector will have acquired glasses ( and emitter if required) at the same time.I have not suggested anyone would buy glasses/emitter without a tv - what would be the point?- not sure where you get that impression. I know nothing about "the pack" - did it include a blu ray player? if so, it may well be a consideration, but I think you need to give full details of what is included so that people can decide if it`s relevant.

I think the point is that blu ray players would never be sold with glasses/emitters (which is how I read your comment) because they are specific to the display(tv/projector) not the player.

I found the inbuilt wifi to be very flakey. The unit kept dropping the connection eventhough it showed a 90% signal strength (the router (N) is about 10m away through one wall and a floor). Obviously it may be due to my set up and the player being surrounded by amp/Plasma/speakers etc, but it would not stream anything for more than 10 minutes and did not want to reconnect.
In the end I got a D_link Wireless N ethernet bridge (bargain, as new, at CEX for £15!). This has no problems maintaining a connection and I use it to stream (HD DNLA and internet movies) to both my BD and AV Amp which are plugged into the gigabit ports on the bridge. Homeplugs are another option, but I get better speeds using the wireless.

If you're going to spend £70 on a wireless dongle why not just get some homeplug adaptors?

My 370 streams perfectly from my Buffalo linkstation live, or from a windows 7 pc

I have a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo, which the s370 found ok, but I just couldn't get it to play itunes (firefly), or video - after a few evenings messing around with settings I gave up. Shame, I liked the player otherwise..
