  • The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.


  • The Sony BDP-S5100 is a slick, versatile 3D Blu-ray player with killer web content and sumptuous HD pictures.


  • It costs a bit more than the other Sony Blu-Ray players, but not enough to break the bank. If you're buying this is conjunction with a new TV you won't even notice the price difference. Since the BDP-S5100 includes 3D playback and built-in Wi-Fi, we'd recommend that you choose this one instead of one of the cheaper models. It's always a good policy to future-proof yourself as much as possible when buying tech.


  • Features are scarce, but the Sony BDP-S1100 is an otherwise impressive sub-£100 player - it's stylish, easy to use and delivers slick HD pictures.


  • The price of the Sony BDP-S1100 has fallen since launch to a rock bottom £50, and at that price it probably offers more for your money than any other player on the market. The designer looks of the device are an added bonus, and it stands out as a top choice among entry-level models.


  • The Sony BDP-S1100 is an excellent Blu-ray player with a very compact design. We liked its responsive, user-friendly menus, which are similar in style to the PlayStation 3 interface. Anyone looking for 3D support, however, will need to look to a higher-end model.


  • Weighing up its features, performance and price, we can only conclude that the BDP-S3100 represents superb value for money. It boasts a generous array of features, including built-in Wi-Fi, web content and DLNA streaming, all for a little over £100 - plus it's attractively styled, surprisingly well built and delivers dazzling 2D pictures.


  • The BDP-S3100 is a nice-looking Blu-Ray player, but beyond its distinctive design, there's no compelling reason to choose this over rivals from other manufacturers. The Triluminos compatibility could be relevant if you plan to buy a Sony TV in the future that supports Triluminos, but at present these are far too expensive for the average consumer to consider.

    It's a step up from the entry-level BDP-S1100, adding Wi-Fi, DLNA and support for Sony's TV Side View smartphone app.


  • Quite simply, the BDP-S790 is a brilliant Blu-ray player. Its top-drawer feature list (headlined by SonyĆ¢??s generous range of internet apps and futureproofed 4K upscaling), its slim, living room friendly design and nigh-on flawless pictures make this one of the best Blu-ray players around, if not the cheapest.


  • Based on the test results, the Sony BDP-S790 is a very good performer with regards to video processing and upscaling of standard definition DVD (which can also apply to internet and network streamed video content - minus any artifacts generated as a result of slow internet speeds), as well as deinterlacing 1080i content to 1080p, that can match a native 1080p video display.


  • Sony's latest, best Blu-ray player is a little pricier than the competition, but it has a few features that make it stand out from the crowd. We think Sony's hit a winner with the BDP-S790's speed and diverse range of features.


  • The Sony BDP-S590 is a great-looking Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and tons of streaming-media apps, but it's slow to load discs and has some user interface quirks.


  • The Sony BDP-S590 is a good Blu-ray player, but a few minor quirks hold it back.


  • The Sony BDP-S590 is pretty much at the ideal price point and feature level. It has all the basics and most of the advanced stuff to fulfill most people's needs, yet still costs less than AU$200.
