This is a great 3D Blu Ray player and has WIFI built in which means no need to buy expensive dongles.

This is the cheapest I have have come across in the last few weeks although I was about £10 cheaper about 2 months ago. Despite this it is still excellent value for money and still works out cheaper than buying the basic model (BDPS370) plus the Sony dongle.

When are they going to release a region free blu ray player ive got a bdp s350 but its region hacked for dvds only but sick of waiting for releases over here - anyone recommend anything?

Be aware a lot of people are experiencing problems with BBC iPlayer on Sony blu-ray players since a BBC update in January. Otherwise these are great players. Have the S370 myself but plugged straight into the modem via ethernet.

Or get with multi region DVD for £ 20 more delivered from Superfi

surely multi region is only a code through a secret menu?

I googled my multi region code!

Excellent player, I got mine a while ago for more, still happy with it!

I would love this but can't right now, plus I think it's too long to fit in our TV case thingy.
I have the non-3D version in another room and it's great, I love being able to link to lovefilm and BBC iplayer plus it is so easy to use.

do these have itv player as well as the bbc offering cheers

Out of curiosity y wud u buy this when for a little more u can get a ps3

I believe that you can buy a special remote control to hack the multi region facility but unless you are going to make a career out of it, it probably isn't worth it.

How does ththe one being discussed above, differ from the Sony Blu-Ray about to be released next month (they are similar prices)

Its a lot of hard work to hack most Sony machines . They have a big interest in the film industry with sony pictures etc so want to make it as hard as possible . You basically need to simulate the sony service hand control codes to do it which is not always as easy as it sounds. I unlocked both mine and a friends using a psp1000 ( its the only psp with an IR port ). Worked a treat !!.

The new BDP-S580 is the direct replacement for this older S570.

The new BDP-S580 is slimmer and has tons of streaming features.

exactly my thoughts

Out of curiosity y wud u buy this when for a little more u can get a ps3



many reasons - for people who dont really want to play games, people who dont want to faff around with controllers and menus just to play a film, people like me who already have a ps3 but want blurays upstairs.......

prc direct £3 less but instore only and free multi region upgrade

Then buy a 2nd ps3? I have and upstairs use it as a portable streaming media centre. Music/iplayer/vids.

But then again a lot of people won;t buy a ps3 on principle because it "plays" games. I was like that.

But anyhow the one thing you all missed is PS3 can't play 3D movies at the same time as decoding HD audio. So that's is the reason why this deal get's my Hotness...

plus a standalone player is better quality than a ps3 imo the itv player on the ps3 though is shocking bitrate quality

i might hang on for this the sony bravia internet video sounds interesting

Got mine for £140 from Richer Sounds in the Sony deal that expired at Xmas. Richer price matched HiSpek at £165 and I have just received a cheque for £25 being the VAT that Sony re-imbursed so this is not such a good deal after all. Voted cold.

This one already has the internet stuff:

The BRAVIA Internet Video feature boasts BBC iPlayer, Demand Five, LoveFilm, YouTube, Dailymotion, and Eurosport alongside news, music videos, sport, lifestyle, podcasts – the list goes on. Culture vultures can even check out the latest phat sounds from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra through a premium streaming service.

Like someone has already said, the PS3 isn't a great quality blu-ray these days, it's simply average in that department. Besides, a standalone player is quicker, quieter and is able to be hacked for multi-region DVDs, and also has support for more filetypes (such as MKV).

This is my 4th bluray player to try next to the PS3 I just got the BD-s370 which is similar to the BD-570. prio to this one I had BD-350 which wat too basic,

then the BS-760 which had all the bells & whistles (including HD audio decoding onboard) but no media player buil in.

Then I tried the Samsung C6900, that played MKV off HDD & DVD but the 3d playback got very poor review (though this didnt matter to me as i dont have a 3D TV & not too interested either) was 1 of the 1st 3d players made.

Now I got the BD-s370, this doesnt have onboard HD Audio decoder but has i-player, lovefilm, mkv & stuff but the part I didnt like is that it doesnt support NTFS. The same goes for the BD-570.

Out of the lot the best for picture & sound was the Sony BD-760. But for multimedia was the Samsung C6900. both these had wifi N onboard

I hope sony do support NTFS on their future blu-ray players. Dissapointingly the Sony BD-S370 will be going back to the shop tomorrow

Good spot but probably also worth pointing out that instore at PRC Direct means their one and only store which is in Ilford compared to Richer Sounds 50+ nationwide stores.

So you voted cold because Richer Sounds are now selling this Blu Ray player for less than what you bought it from them at Christmas (which was a price match anyway). Wow. oO . This is a good deal - it was only the Sony VAT refund promotion that made your purchase better than this deal.

Nice one! Care to share how you did it?

I have this, when i play dvds off it, half way through the film. The movie skips. Havent found out what is cause this, really annoying

For all those talking about multi-region it can be made multi-region for DVDs, it you want multi-region for blu-rays be very prepared to pay for it - you will not get it from Sony probably ever.


For BR multi-region on Sonys there are firms that do hardware mods for some of the Sony range but they are not cheap!

Someone on AV Forums has reported that the 380 does (he got one early from a Sony Centre he said) so if it's true then it's a fair bet that the rest of the updated models would as well.

Nice one! Care to share how you did it?



You need to have custom firmware on you PSP and a program called 'ir shell' which basically means you can use your PSP1000 as a very adaptable universal remote. I have unlocked a few Sony machines with it now and it only takes a few seconds ( i only wish it had taken me that long to make my program with the correct HEX codes to do it LOL). If you want more info PM me or if you are local to me we can always give it a go

Forgot to say that this only unlocks the dvd region and not bluray........for now

Just curious why do you think the ps3 is an average bluray player now adays?I have one and love watching blurays on it.
Also re the itv player I've not used the itv player on mine but would have thought this cd be fixed easily at some point with a software update.
And I cd be wrong but are the first generation of ps3s not multi region?
It's just I have bought blurays from the states and also Australia and they have been fine.

I wouldn't touch Richer Sounds with a barge pole after receiving rude customer service from them years ago. Besides they rarely have anything you want, then try to sell you stuff that you don't really want but they have it out the back.....buy this model, it's better (and we have it in stock and the profit margin is better)

Because some people don't want to play games, or faff around with controllers, and they like a smaller, quieter device. PS3 also doesn't (to my knowledge) do 3D with HD sound - only one or the other. BluRay's also load faster on the S570 compared to the PS3.

This is a great machine, the DLNA function works great, so do LoveFilm and iPlayer. Add to this how quiet and sleek it is, and it comes out quite well.

Oh don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with it per se, it's just that it doesn't do anything that a standalone won't do. If anything, it's at a disadvantage as it doesn't support matroska files and simultaneous 3D/HD audio. For someone who isn't interested in gaming, the extra outlay on a PS3 isn't at all worth it for an inferior media player

None of the PS3s are multi-region. The issue isn't with the players - a lot of blu-ray discs are made to be region-free, so you can buy many (though not all) US discs and play them without any problems. Australia shares the same region as the UK/Europe.

cheaper than buying the basic model (BDPS370) plus the Sony dongle



you dont need a dongle, just get a wireless bridge and save about £30

It is available in store at this price, saw it in the Manchester store at the weekend. The website should say whether is in stock at your preferred location. Have to admit I've never had a problem with Richer Sounds.
