I bought this to go with my Sony KDL-40W4500 - 40" Widescreen 100hz / 1080P Full HD Bravia LCD TV - With DLNA Technology & Freeview as I knew it would not only connect up simply but also be perfectly linked up on the Bravia's menu's and I could put aside my main remote or use either the TV or Blu-Ray one for most functions. The Blu-Ray one even has a handy off button for the TV as well as one for the Blu-Ray player.

Connecting up to the TV: Using a HDMI cable, I used the one I had already for my DVD player, had it for ages and is nice and solid. Snakebyte Mamba Premium 3D Audio/Video HDMI Cable (PS3/Xbox 360) and then plugged the player into the mains. Easy! If not this one then there are so many HMDI cables out there with great reviews that will do perfectly. Just search HDMI cable, Amazon Basics do sell a decent looking one for not much at all.

Connecting up to the Internet: We have a standard router and seeing as I will be using the online services such as iPlayer, 5 on demand, online film rental services and Youtube etc then I'll need a constantly good broadband supply to the system. I have used a couple of homeplugs/eplugs, which you may or may not know much about. They use the house electrical wiring (nothing technical or dangerous is required to be done, all external) to give you broadband direct link up with standard ethernet cables. We have one plug one next to the router upstairs and the other downstairs in the nearest plug to the Blu-Ray player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed 22 April 2010
Verified Purchase
I've never been one for Sony's hi-fi gear as I prefer the sound of other manufactures' equipment, but I had been looking for a blu-ray player that met my requirements for over a year now. I was waiting for Oppo's BDP-831, which was inexplicably cancelled about a week after receiving 5 star reviews in the major home cinema and hi-fi magazines. Then the Cambridge Audio 650BD came out for the about same price as the Oppo's SRP, but had worse quality DACs and Video scaler, which put me off.

Then the Sony came out that played most of the disc types that the Oppo and Cambridge Audio players (all but DVD-Audio) for less than half the price of those players. Chuck in iPlayer support and I was sold!

I'm very glad I decided to get this player. It loads Blu-Ray films faster than a Playstation 3, DVDs faster than my old Denon 1920 DVD player. DVD up-scaling is strong, with the exception of line drawn animation (like Family Guy or The Simpsons) which sometimes causes thin horizontal lines to shake and break up. Blu-Ray playback is excellent and stable, provided you have a TV that can display 720p or 1080p at 24 fps.

On-line content was fairly good, but I was unable to play HD content from LoveFilm or YouTube without buffering problems on my "up to 8Mb" from Tiscali (which was no faster than when I had their "up to 2Mb" service). iPlayer has no such problems though as the BBC's servers are much faster than the afore mentioned services.

A nice surprise was finding that the USB playback feature does support H.264/AVC video in a .MKV container (it's not mentioned in the blurb, but is mentioned in the manual), so you can playback all those (legally acquired) TV shows you've downloaded from the Internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Blu Ray player 370 model 31 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
Just got this today for a relatives birthday present. Extremely fast and slick but was at first disappointed that the BBC iplayer wasnt available this afternoon when i looked for it. Just got an update this evening (31/3/2010) and now BBC iplayer works perfectly, and yes, BBC HD works like a dream on iplayer. Had no problem streaming Lovefilm movies to my TV although I consider myself lucky as our Sky broadband is around 13 meg speed in real terms. Another thing is that it looks like Lovefilm will go HD with their service on this player as you can watch HD trailers of the latest films streamed from the net. Youtube HD videos also work here unlike the LG370 we have which just streams SD at the minute. Hope this helps you makin up your mind about this player. We bought it for the online and catchup tv facility. One last thing is the HD streaming to the player looks the same quality as blu ray discs although our TV is 720p only. Lovefilm SD movies are the same quality as ordinary DVDs (or near DVD at least)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony BDPS370 29 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
Got this delivered Saturday. After unpacking, was surprised how much smaller this is height wise compared with my S350. The player is now in gloss black, which I do prefer, apart from the inevitable dusting.

Very, very easy to setup and load times are also very fast, even from a cold start probably at least 75% faster than the S350.

One nice update is the removal of that bright blue 24 fps led indicator and also the eject button is now on the remote. The drawer mechansim is now a standard tray loading, so the drop down flap has gone.

Performance is quite simply outstanding with no issues. Future firmware updates promise BBC iplayer amongst other things.
