This player takes just three seconds to boot up, two seconds for the tray to eject and boasts super-fast disc loading time so you won't be kept waiting when you want to watch a movie. The Xross Media Bar (XMB) graphic user interface from Sony also means you can operate every part of your home cinema system easily from one place.

24p True Cinema technology for films as the director intended
With 24p True Cinema technology you can sit back and enjoy movies exactly as the director filmed them.

A blend of high-quality materials creates a beautiful finish, bringing elegant style to your living room. The minimalist look is designed to match the latest TVs and other home entertainment products from Sony.

Use your iPhone® or iPod touch® as a remote control
Turn your iPhone® or iPod touch® into a remote. With the free BD remote app you can operate and control your Blu-ray Disc Player as well as access detailed movie information like cast, director, genre and more.

Choosing the right Sony Bu-ray Player for you
More than a Blu-ray player, the range starts with the BDPS370 which is packed with great technology such as catch-up TV, front USB, quick start (the list goes on). Building on the BDPS370, next in the range is the BDPS470 which allows you to play next-generation 3D movies. 2010's flagship product from Sony, available from June, is the BDPS570 which combines all the innovative technology of the BDPS470 with integrated WiFi to wirelessly connect to your home network, along with a more premium design. Finally, why not consider maximising the enjoyment from Blu-ray by adding in the surround sound experience. Sony's Blu-ray Home Theatre range starts with the BDVE370.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit, however, some caveats 6 July 2010
By Kif
Verified Purchase
I've taken a gamble and an investment on the future that 3D tech will take off as currently I do not own anything larger than a 22inch monitor.

The unit itself comes fairly standard, the power cable is connected to the base, it comes with a remote and batteries and some instructions. Assembly is straight forward, however, if your TV / monitor's native resolution is not able to cope with 1080p you may end up with a black screen like I did.

The instructions are very clear and in this instance were able to help straight away in telling me how to adjust the setting manually without a display to follow. It's working at 720p via an HDMI to DVI cable perfectly happily on my monitor and bluray looks stunning. I cant say there's a vast improvement on DVD's but maybe the DVD software on my PC has upscaling too. I've tested some other formats and it seems to cope well with the usual XVid / DivX type avi.

The interface is easy to navigate, it can be a bit slow to respond at times though there seems to be a method to speed it up in the menus at the expense of extra fan usage. It's quiet the unit is closer to me than my speakers and I can't hear it when a movie is playing. The I/O options are varied and useful for people like myself who have filled up virtually every slot this thing uses my last coax connection.

The build quality is a little flimsy and the remote is quite bulky but aesthetics don't bother me so much as it's hidden away.

BUT the big big issue for me is not so much a blemish on the device and more on Sony's tactics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Product 13 July 2010
Verified Purchase
Right off the bat I'm going to tell you this Blu Ray player is superb. I've owned a PS3 since launch day, and, up until now, have used that for my HD movie experience. Lately, the noise of the onboard fan has been annoying me. With also using the PS3 as my media server and for occasional gaming, I thought it was time to lessen the load and opt for a standalone HD player. After a lot of to and fro, I finally decided to opt for this player here. I have to admit, access to iPlayer HD and LoveFilm (as I have an unlimited account there already) was a factor.

Ok, there's no in-built Wi-Fi, contrary to what another reviewer has stated. There's a Lan port which you can plug a cable into or a USB slot you can use to upgrade the player with a seperate Sony dongle to turn it Wi-Fi. Since I already have a cable running all the way into the living room, spending an extra £50 for the next model up just for wi-fi seemed a bit silly.

As soon as the player's connected you're prompted to update. Once that's done (all automatically) the player can stream most types of media files from a PC or laptop. It's outstanding at this. A lot of people find MKV's don't stream. I found this as well, despite them being encoded in H264, a codec this blu ray does support. I found that if I changed an H264 encoded MKV to an .mpg extension, suddenly the player could see and stream it, smooth as silk.

Internet streaming is flawless, and gaining access to your LoveFilm account couldn't be easier. With over 3,000 films to watch online as part of an unlimited subscription package, opting for this player becomes a no-brainer. YouTube is also a lot of fun. On top of iPlayer, there's also support for channel 5's catch-up service. Quality is as good as the over air transmission.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 3D Blu Ray Player 26 Aug 2010
I was looking for a 3D Blu Ray Player! Because of the low price I found on the Sony BDP-S470. The description is that it is capable of 3D for a software update! Nowhere could I find information about when this update will be provided! I bought anyway, and lo and behold: The update already exists and works great! Super 3D images with a super price!

I can recommend this unit highly!

I use this with the Samsung LE40C750.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good media streamer that plays Blu-Rays too 8 May 2010
When I came to buy a Blu-Ray player a couple of weeks ago and started researching I quickly realised that I didn't know anything about them anymore. The latest generation of players are basically media streamers that happen to have a Blu-Ray drive mounted in them. This Sony player is a great example.

Out of the box the first thing you notice is it's size and weight. It is a very small item front-to-back and heightwise and weighs very little. The build quality is OK. It looks fine but very plasticy and attracts dust very easily due to static build up. It's a standard width and looks nice under my Sky HD box (if a bit buried).

On startup (which is very quick indeed, a couple of seconds) a wizard-type easy setup guides you through the video and audio connection options. It also immediately connected to the internet and ran a firmware update. The user interface is attractive, easy to use and very responsive. I've read reviews of earlier players being slow to start and to load discs and this is neither, being comparable to a DVD player, even when loading a Blu-Ray.

The internet connection elements are well presented, divided into audio services (radio), video (YouTube, BBC iPlayer...) and picture (nothing yet). It takes USB and disc stored files as well and let's you browse and play these in the same way. Since I got the player a week ago several new services have been added such as Channel 5's catch-up service so I have high hopes for the future. It also plays most formats of file copied from a computer to USB or DVD local storage. MKV support is very strong and I haven't found one yet that it doesn't like.

As of today (10th June) the DLNA support has just been released.
