    I have spent months reading reviews on blu ray players with 3D with the front runner ending up as the BDPS790 until I read a review by Alan which seemed to make sense (he recommended getting this model if you didn't need Skype or 4K up scaling). It seemed pointless paying more for extras I did not require.

    I am so pleased with this purchase. I have watched standard blu ray, 3D blu ray and DVD films and the picture quality is outstanding in all. The style of the player is slim and sleek, setup was so easy with wifi included. I already had the Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) with my TV but if you haven't got it you will get Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer, YouTube plus many others.

    This is a great 3D Blu Ray player, looks sleek and performs exceptionally.

    Style Name: With Wi-Fi Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Having already released the cheaper S490 version without Wi-Fi, Sony has finally released the new S590 that includes built-in Wi-Fi. Obviously many newer TVs (especially those built for 3D) do come with built in Wi-Fi so this purchase would be for those without this feature in their TV.

    Sony include a number of nice online features including on demand TV services (BBC Iplayer, 5 On demand) and also allow instant access to Netflix and Lovefilm. As well as these monthly rental subscription services there's also Sony's Entertainment Network where you can see TV shows, rent individual films etc. It's a good package and makes it extremely easy to rent films in HD, and far better than Sky's Box Office where the picture quality of a lot of their films are very subpar.

    The box itself is nice and slim and will slot into the smallest of spaces on your shelf. It's lightweight but not in a cheap way. Setup is about as easy as it gets, about five clicks on the remote have you setup, connected to the internet and ready to go. Functioning is fast and there's even an option to speed up operation (although it does consume more power). The player includes a USB port for digital cameras etc and can connect to computers for sharing.

    Blu-ray comes through crisp and clear without any performance problems. 3D is handled very well and again there were no performance problems, frame-rate issues or scanning. Sound is again very well produced with no problems whatsoever. Please remember you will have to buy a high-speed HDMI cable for this player as we still aren't at a point where these things are included with the package. Sony's active shutter glasses are still at a high price for even the cheaper models, you can see my reviews on them if you wish.

    Overall thoroughly recommended for those that want the complete package with their 3D players.

    I've been the proud owner of a third generation Sony BDP S-550 for around four years now, but recently it's started to exhibit a few minor problems; things like locking up with certain discs after extended use and issues with some or the more complex BDs out there. I was also keen to add media streaming capabilities in the living room without having to cart the PS3 between rooms each time. After demoing a few players at my local independent store I narrowed things down to the Panasonic DMP BDT220 and this, the Sony BDP S-590. In the end I plumped for the Sony for the following reasons:

    Disc playback: I took a couple of known `trouble' discs with me to test, fully expecting the Panasonic to have no problems with them - I was wrong. While it didn't lock up like my old S-550, the picture did break up, pixelate and skip. I tried the S-590 and it played over the problem area like it wasn't there. This was a great surprise given that this particular disc locked up my old player and my PS3, but also because even my Toshiba deck in the bedroom - known for its speed - exhibits a slight glitch when it passes over the defective area. The S-590 was flawless, so Sony has clearly made strides in this area in the last few years. It also played another disc (the one that prompted this purchase by locking up my S-550) without incident. Images looked every bit as good as every other player I've seen when set to the standard setting (let's face it, most BD players offer the same visual quality) and audio bitstreamed to my amp without issue. I usually don't use on-board decoding, but I performed a quick test and the player mixed both primary and secondary audio and output the result as multi-channel LPCM to my AVR, so it's doing what it should.

    I was about to buy last year's model of this Blu-ray player then was lucky enough to spot this s-490 at a pretty good price (not on Amazon I'm afraid) so decided to take the plunge.

    Firstly I should say that the unit itself is nicely put together and the remote is compact but good enough. The set-up was very straight-forward but for those who want to, there are plenty of options to play with once you're up and running.

    Blu-ray playback is superb. Significantly better than my PS3 and pin sharp. Watched Avatar and the picture and sound were just awesome.

    Unfortunately, its not all good news. The operating system is glitchy and after playing about with the various menus and "smart" connectivity stuff like internet radio, Lovefilm, Sony Entertainment Network, etc. for about an hour the player crashed and I had to completely power it down and back up again to get it to work again.

    This happened a couple more times over the course of the evening and although its not the end of the world its enough to make me question choosing this over the equivalent Panasonic.

    Hopefully a system update or two will sort these glitches out, but until then I can't justify any more than three stars.....
