4.0 out of 5 stars Great player 10 Feb 2012
Took a chance on this and bought it before reading any reviews. Compared to other players with built in wifi this is well priced, quality is very very good. Setup was a breeze, including wifi setup thanks to having WPS support. After an update it has iPlayer support which works very well (including HD) but sadly does not have 4 on Demand or ITV Player as of yet (Demand 5 is on there too). Design of the player is nice, no display to speak off but has a very small profile, much smaller than the 380.

Menu system is just like on the PS3 only slightly more sluggish. The small remote works well and it there is also an Android app that can be used as a remote, very useful for typing into the search box on iPlayer.

The s390 has DLNA support and has played HD videos off my NAS without problem. The only downside to this is there is no DIVX support!! You may need to encode as XVID instead, this has knocked a star off for me. Haven't tried USB support yet, but I understand it will work with NTFS.

One thing that did cross my mind when setting it up, for not a lot more you could have a PS3 which does have DIVX support. When you consider this doesn't come with an HDMI cable but the PS3 does, the price gap isn't that big!

Overall great blu-ray player, upscales DVD's well, nice interface and so far no problems.

Edit:
Have used the LoveFilm app since the weekend, menu is different to the PS3 version (it's better in my opinion). Quality is very good, LF isn't HD but it still looks great from this player. Currently there is no ITV or C4 player.

Verified Purchase
The standard across Blu Ray players over the last six months has increased considerably, almost to the extent that audio and video from these players have for the most part very little to differentiate them. To this end when I looked at replacing my old Sony PLAYER, I had a number of criteria in addition to the standard features (particularly with the growing availability of high speed broadband) that I was looking for.

1. Wireless connection (without a dongle or other accessory)
2. The ability to stream media for other sources (ideally with DLNA)
3. A wide variety of online services (such as Netflix etc.)
4. A wide variety of supported formats (MPEG2, MPEG4, MKV, AVI, etc.)

The Sony ticked all of these boxed or so I though but after hours of the unit rebooting and having read (and like everyone I hate doing this) every page of the manual in detail and with a lot of playing about I found the following (despite updating to the latest firmware).

1. The wireless is a breeze to setup but unlike every other wireless device in my house, the connection quality and throughput is hit and miss. I have a LinkSys EA4500 in the NEXT room and the connection can struggle the odd time.

2. So the system has DLNA & streaming and can see my network correctly. It sees my three WD Live boxes, my Alienware laptop and more importantly my 4GB WD MyBook Live Duo where I have centralized the storage of all of my audio and video files. This allows me to access them on any device at any time (even when not at home). What Sony did not state in the system spec and what is buried at the very back of the user manual is that the do not allow streaming of 80% of the formats the box "supports".

Overall, I am impressed, a good value for money Blu Ray player, home media streamer and internet tv streamer. Tweaking may be required for some file formats and server software. Unit and remote are a bit cheap feeling but work very well.

Setup: BDP-S390 connected to a 1080i generic tv, Wifi'd to a pc running Sony HomeStream (serviio) for DLNA services.

Out of the box: The player itself is not as sturdy feeling as a PS3 or more expensive model but I was pretty happy with it. The remote is cheap but comes with batteries. Does not come with a HDMI or Component leads, integrated power cable. Minimal packaging, light unit. Good button and tray action. Curved top - you can't put anything on it!

General use: The system starts you off with a set up menu which will help you set your tv connection type and network connection type. It also asks if it can use USB media as a data store, for reasons explained below select yes and get a FAT 32 memory stick in that slot! It also has a quick boot option (more power needed captain!) which is much quicker but the slow boot takes about 10 seconds, the quick is instant. It will also ask you to update the player to most recent firmware; I updated mine straight away but forums have said that netflix app is messed up after this and some file type support is dropped as a result. I don't use netflix but all issues seem to be resolved by removing account details, restarting and re-entering. File type support updates are covered in the media streaming section below. The remote has all the buttons you need but does feel cheap cheap cheap! Menu selection is like the PS3 and scrolling is a bit jerky and clunky looking (hi res graphics down scaled poorly) but works and isn't too laggy.
