Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Sony's new sleek and slender DVP-NS355 DVD player features built-in MP3 decoding, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW (video mode) playback. With Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive and new Precision Drive3 systems, you'll get a picture that is more faithful to the source, video or film, and virtually free of errors that warped discs can produce. High-quality image playback is facilitated using a 12bit/54Mhz Video; while SCART and composite video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

A 192 kHz 24-bit digital-to-analogue audio converter ensures optimum decoding of all disc formats. A Dolby DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signal can be routed through the player's optical digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: Sony's TV Virtual Surround (with four surround modes) simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

Playback options include quick set-up, disc resume, DVD/CD Text, custom parental control memory, Advanced Smooth Scan and Smooth Slow Modes, instant replay and instant search. Supplied accessories include a remote control that operates the DVD player and many brands of television and a standard A/V cable. Please note that a SCART cable is NOT included.

    I think the reason most people are having problems is that whilst the dvd is multi-region it outputs NTSC & some television can't handle it. My old dvd player and a lot of other dvd players convert NTSC to pal, therefore the tv can display it correctly. On my television it would only work via scart 1 as scart 2 would not cope with ntsc (as is the case on some televisions). So if you want this dvd player I recommend you check your Tv can handle NTSC. I think this is the reason why their are mixed reports as to multi-region working & why their older dvd players may have been ok.

    Brought this a couple of weeks ago for my 84yr old Grandmother as she was after some video tape boxsets which i found were cheaper to buy on dvd boxsets (??) (on Amazon), so i suggested it would be just as cheap to buy a dvd player and she agreed but i was a bit worried she would not be able to operate it, as she is still confused as to how to change the clock & timer on her central heating boiler control after about 7 yrs of me showing her but i was pleasantly suprised, after only about 2 hours of repeatedly showing her the basic's (a few bang head on wall moments) turn on, select tv channel, open dvd tray, put dvd in, press play and stop she seems to have mastered it, so next step is menu control and track skip.
    The unit is what you can expect of Sony, good quality, sturdy, easy to use and good looking. Only bad points were not available in black & quite wide when compared to how slimline it is (couple of inches wider than a VCR), also wish the manufacturers would include scart leads in the box.
    Very good value, even better now as 20% off (typical that 20% is knocked off a few days after i brought it), as searching through the other electrical dealers it was around the £75 mark and that was not for multi region, also found a company that could make it a multiregion player for around £50. So you are saving around £75 with Amazon's multiregion offering.
    Picture quality good and reasonable sound quality but you need a digital amp if you want 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound as only has stereo & optical outputs on the unit.

    I read most of the reviews for the Toshiba SD330 m/r player which I was tempted to buy, but in the end I opted for the Sony for £10 more. The setup is simple and takes no more than 5 minutes. It comes with an A/V cable but no scart lead, although there is a scart socket at the back. The picture quality is very good, and the sound can be changed through a number of Virtual Surround Sound settings (for those like me without a home cinema package). The sound and the subtitles can be changed using the remote very easily during playback without any disruption the picture. Other buttons on the remote include picture navigation, zoom, angle, and scene replay.
    For £80 with free delivery I would definitely recommend this.

    This DVD player is just superb. I bought it because it can play a DVD from any country - very handy if you travel to the USA for your holidays.
    The machine detects region 1 NTSC instantly, with no difference in the picture quality. It is easy to operate with a well laid out remote.
    DVD +/- RW/R all play great. JPEG phot discs - no problem!
    I don't think you can go wrong with this SONY player.

    Very happy with this product. It was set up within minutes of getting it out of the box, and for the price, it is a solid, sleek looking piece of equipment that I would expect to pay much more for.
    Picture quality is fantastic, and aside from playing my DVD's I can view my KODAK photo CD's (other brands also seem to work fine).
    Negative points - The remote control can (apparently) be programmed to control your T.V, although this didn't work for my AIWA even though it said it should. Also, after the "Welcome" message appears/disappears after turning the device on, there is no visual indication that the device is STILL on. No LED, nothing. The impatient will likely spend a few minutes in confusion turning it on and off repeatedly.
    No Scart lead included.

    I have been desperate for an technically excellent & good priced DVD player and after much hunting, finally found this DVD player....SONY DVP-NS355 Multi-region DVD Player - I was specially looking for a multi region player to play all the various regions DVDs I have.
    And then I got this from Amazon. The slim line design makes it look fabulous and it plays all the DVDs fantastically irrespective of the regions, with no changes to be made to the player! Connected via a scart to the TV, it also gets connected to external speakers to give you a perfect home theatre effect.
    I highly recommend this product to the DVD player maniacs!!!

    When you recieve your DVP-NS355 you may be alarmed by several stickers indicating it is Region 2 only. Indeed this is the standard model from Sony and available from Amazon for exactly price. Somewhere along the line Amazon sprinkles magic fairydust upon then humble Sony and despite all the Region 2 stickers it plays Region 1 discs perfectly (I'm not in possesion of discs from other regions but hey,that's Europe and America covered).
    Make sure you have a SCART lead handy as there is no S-video socket (even though the manual illustrates one). Having griped a bit this is an excellent player when you compare it to no-name brands where obscure hidden menu moves are necessary. There are heaps of thoughful Sony features (like auto-power off with no use) and it's truly slimline.
