Unfortunately, and I have confirmed this with Amazon, the 2014 Sony Bluray players do not connect to Amazon Instant Video so at the moment I am a bit disappointed.
Otherwise it seems a pretty decent player which is easy to set up and use.
I have been promised this will be resolved and will update my review when this happens but felt it best to let anyone in the same situation know.
Edit: 11th April 2014 - now connects to Amazon Instant Streaming and works perfectly even on my pretty average broadband.
Be aware you will need to order an HDMI lead to hook this up to your TV unless you already have one, as like most things like this, one is not supplied.
Size - measurements indicated it was bigger than the BDSP1200, it isn't, still compact and sits perfectly under the 23" LG TV it was purchased to go with. Size means sacrifice so no display on machine, which is not an issue for me.
Internet - set up was incredibly easy for me using wifi, literally just had to put in my wifi password. I am on Superfast BT using a home hub 4. I have also got a wired connection, from where I had the BDPS1200, but haven't tried that yet, as wanted to see wifi in operation. It recorded signal strength for wifi as only being two bars, which made me think I may have streaming issues.
Software - Automatically updated the software and when I clicked on the video menu it downloaded all my apps, so Amazon instant, netflix, iplayer. Once you have entered your account details for netflix and prime it remembers them.
Use - Cannot comment as a blu ray player, as haven't used it as such yet. As a smart player it has been A star. I have used it for iplayer, netflix and Amazon instant, it has played everything I have watched perfectly, despite my initial concerns on the wifi signal looking low. all programmes have played in HD when they are and the screen is crisp and clear for all.Read more ›
24 hour delay notwithstanding, I am a very happy bunny.
I'll get the elephant in the room out of the way: it's a bit ugly. I'm glad we got that out of the way because now we can focus on what matters.
This is a 3D, WiFi-enabled, smart Blu-ray player. I don't like 3D and don't use the 3D capability but at the time I bought it this was the cheapest, new Sony Blu-ray player I could have bought anywhere (I got lucky and only paid £54.99). Why did I buy Sony? Because I have a Sony TV and I like the way the Sony devices work together and off the same remote control. For what I paid I got a real bargain. For the much more than I paid you'd be forgiven for expecting more for your money.
Where this player is let down is Sony's lack of desirable online content. In its favour, this player lets you access BBC iPlayer, Demand5, Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube amongst others. What you won't get are 4oD and ITV Player which are as much the basic staples of UK television now as their respective networks have been for the last 30 years or so. Not having these is like Sony are trying to sell you a breakfast cereal you can't use milk with; it doesn't start you off on the right footing. That said, I only really use BBC iPlayer and Netflix anyway so it doesn't bother me.
The hardware is pretty capable. If your internet connection is good then you won't be let down by the playback from any of the online content, although BBC's iPlayer app is clunky and annoying regardless but that's not Sony's fault. The Netflix app takes an age to load and I don't know if this is more the fault of Sony or Netflix. Disc loading times are a bit long too but if I'm sitting down to watch something I'm generally not in a hurry.Read more ›
