5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the Sony BDPS590, 9 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: Sony BDPS590 Smart 3D Blu-ray Player with Built-in Wi-Fi (New for 2012) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (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.
