If you're looking for a Blu-ray player that is big in features but small in size then you should look no further than the feature packed but compact Sony BDPS185 Blu-ray player.

This new Sony Blu-ray player is small and sexy - able to fit in spaces that full size players won't go but packed with some of the best features that we've ever seen on a Blu-ray player. It's fast loading, Blu-rays play almost instantly - which is a far cry from earlier models. While the early Blu-ray players were the equivalent of the Reliant Robin.. This is the Blu-ray player equivalent of a Stealth Bomber.

It has features that you wouldn't expect to get in a Blu-ray player so small in size and price. Not content with merely playing your existing DVDs in the highest quality possible, in addition to full High Definition Blu-rays, this Sony Blu-ray Player has 'Sony's Precision Drive' technology built into the player - it actually compensates for scratched or damaged discs - extending the life of your old DVDs.

And not only that, this sleek and sexy player will stay completely in date. It connects to the internet where you can access services like BBC iPlayer and YouTube. There's also Sony's own Music Unlimited service (although that costs extra). It connects to your home network and you can even plug devices in the front of the player to watch videos, photos or listen to music through the Blu-ray player.

As you'd expect from Sony, who invented the Blu-ray format; this new Blu-ray player boasts an unbeatable top quality picture and sound with full 1080p High Definition, (5x the quality of an ordinary DVD), along with a clarity of sound that transforms the movie experience.

Movie nights will never be the same again!

Easy to use by technophobes but packed with extra features for the extra geeky, this Blu-ray player IS the best thing since sliced bread. Well... apart from Blockbuster of course. Highly recommended.

Features:
* High Definition picture quality - Watch Blu-ray Disc movies in crystal clear, FULL HD 1080p.
* Also plays DVD discs - No need to throw out your old collection of DVD movies. Also upscales your existing DVD collection to near 1080p quality.
* Easy to use menu system - Award winning menu system uses an easy to follow guide to do all the thinking for you.
* Compact and sylish design - 290mm wide main unit with brushed alumnium appearance which looks good in any room.
* Access to free online entertainment - Stream from the likes of iPlayer and YouTube.
* Wide choice of file compatiblity via USB - Play music, videos and pictures on the big screen from a USB drive or Hard Drive.
* Cost saving power consumption - Low power consumption means you can save money on your electricity bill while being kinder to the environment.

** Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray Player with 2 Blu-rays for £89.99

good entry level bluray player, but no display and wont play 3D blue rays
reasonable price though
But will play MKV files and read NTFS drives.
Does not support DNLA which is a real shame or I would have one

Review here if anyone needs it

Also no optical out. Good basic player, though, using one in the bedroom and it's much quieter in operation than the BPS-370 I've got downstairs which whines constantly when playing BluRays. The LoveFilm and iPlayer access is very useful, got it connected via ethernet/homeplugs and it works brilliantly. Picked this up when Tescos had them for £50 a couple of months ago, that was a real bargain.
Nice find, also available from John Lewis here
The Blueray's with DLNA capability can the receive DLNA aswell as stream it??

my router with NAS streams my films but would be good to get a blueray which can receive the DLNA for displaying on the telly. Will be getting a TV which will receive DLNA but waiting till the iTV comes out.
same price instore in sainsbury's (wimbledon in my case)

Only bad thing is about this is it's really, really narrow so you can't stick anything on top of it.

Good deal as it comes with a free two year guarantee
Anyone know if this will play netflix or lovefilm streaming?

Also does it really not have optical out?
Ethernet only if anyone was wondering.
Great little player, be warned though I have an S380 and one of these S185. The S380 can use USB hard drives without power supplies, but the S185 doesn't seem to have enough power for it's USB port to power a plugless USB drive, it is a bit flaky, it will stay connected sometimes but most times it will either just not turn the drive on or disconnect/reconnect etc This was confirmed on the Sony forums btw.

Partly answered in #4. LF yes, NF no.
Same price at John Lewis - + 2 year warranty
You forgot the £4.99 P&P with Blockbuster

Total = £74.98 with delivery
You can buy them in store for this price. I personally would never buy a standalone player, the PS3 or a cheap blu ray capable PC of some sort. I hope physical formats stay alive and I hope blockbuster does to.
Get a popcorn hour for other media and a blu ray player for blu rays. Much better

Yes you can buy blu-ray players that will stream from DNLA - I think LG do one
Hmmm, the link for the deal is being blocked by my Norton DNS as a malicious site.
The online content is brilliant, check out Mosh Cam - hundreds of free full length live gigs! Also iPlayer, Demand 5, You Tube (the full experience), Billabong TV and loads more!

The site is fine - Norton is not.
Same price in Xtravision rental stores,including 10 half price blu-ray rentals.
i bought this before Christmas paid £90 but got X-Men and Rise of The Planet of the apes triple plays in a deal they had on although this was also on its own for £69.99.

decent player
Sony did not invent Blue ray as stated in the title.

It was these...The "Blu-ray Disc founder group" was started on May 20, 2002 by MIT and nine leading electronic companies: Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Thomson, LG (Lucky GoldStar) Electronics, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung.[2] In order to enable more companies to participate, it announced in May 2004 that it would form the Blu-ray Disc Association, which was inaugurated on October 4, 2004.
Just to mention that these are available instore at the £69.99 price... I picked one up from Blockbuster in Coventry last night
