Very disappointed. temperamental machine. shuts off on its own and sometimes you can't turn it off. skips on the remote. sound on Netflix must be adjusted as it won't have any sound if set to Dolby. ( default) sketchy wireless connection. cheap feeling remote with no light response on machine at click. would not recommend. would be happier to do a Mexican hat dance on this machine rather than use it.
Lots of media streaming options - includes Netflix and DLNA software for local media playback
The Sony BDP-S470 is one of 3D-ready Blu-ray disc players (S470, S570) released in February 2010 as direct competitors to Panasonicâ??s 3D lineup. The actual 3D support was later provided by a free firmware update during the summer of 2010.
Ergonomic- one of the most compact Blu-Ray players available
Overall, the Sony BDP-470 is a good entry-level Blu-Ray player that boasts several impressive features but lacks the quality and performance that consumers expect out of a Sony product. Several users reported horror stories of defective players getting no support from Sony. While these cases are especially rare, you should definitely consider purchasing a different or perhaps more expensive player.
3D-ready, low price, simple design
Found for as low as Â£130 online, Sonyâ?? s BDP-S470 makes for a wonderful 2D Blu-ray alone - with 3D support virtually free. Excellent picture quality makes sure of that, but its superb user interface chucks in not just all-round digital file support from USB, but also a plethora of must-have video streaming options such as BBC iPlayer, Demand Five, Lovefilm and YouTube.
Spec stepping like this is nothing new and Sony has been doing it for ages. Offering multiple products that feature only slight technical differences but huge profit margins between them is the formula for success. In a perfect world Sony would have a high-end model that actually has compelling features over the low-end model. 1000W Full HD 1080p Blu-ray Disc™, DVD, CD, SA-CD 5.1 channel home theater system
Blu-ray 3D ready (with firmware update available this summer)
