Toshiba Samurai Falls On Sword
 
This review is from: Sony BDP-S301 Blu-Ray DVD Player I gotta admit it: when it comes to electronics, I'm about as brand-loyal to Toshiba as they come. Nevertheless, for me, the whole history of the Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD wars has unfolded on the software battlefield. Sony has simply come up with a better DVD. By the time HD-DVD catches up, we'll all either own two fine DVD players, or one that can play both formats. After haunting a few electronics showrooms, and seeing and ...

You will be disappointed after 1 month
 
This player worked fine for the first eight or so movies, but soon after, the video started freezing up until, finally, the "CANNOT PLAY THIS DISC" message appears. After checking the Sony website I requested a firmware update disc from Sony and installed the update. However, that did not fix the problem. The player tends to run very hot, so don't store in a compartment with other A/V equipment such as a wall unit or cabinet with a stereo. Also, be sure to set the "video format" on the remot...

Awesome with other HD components
 
This review is from: Sony BDP-S301 Blu-Ray DVD Player I have had this now for about 3 weeks and my first movie was Ghost Rider....simply AWESOME. I read a lot of reviews about the Sony BDP-S300 and there seemed to be a lot of issues with it, especially the load times. Well, I am not sure if this is the 'fix' to the 300, but the 301 has been GREAT! Ghost Rider rocks and I just got '300' to view.I will admit, I won't buy any movie for Bluray, only super action fi...

Great Video, Crippled Audio
 
This review is from: Sony BDP-S301 Blu-Ray DVD Player We have owned this product for about a month and have been very pleased with the video performance. Audio is great with PCM lossless (but read further for the problem with audio).Like most HD players, it is slower than the cheapest DVD player, but that is okay, we have come to expect it and that no longer bothers us.The problem with this player is that it does not output Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA in...

If it's not Scottish, it's crap!
 
Possibly the crappiest Sony product I've ever owned! The picture quality is indeed amazing, but the drawbacks to this first generation BD player is that it sucks. I remember purchasing a cheap Akai DVD player in 1999 and thinking "Damn, the latency from pressing the button to actually having something happen on the player is terrible!" I can say the same for this second-rate product with a first-class name. Every now and then the player will freeze. I've watched a great deal of BDs on here, cour...

Sony BDP-S300
 
I have been a dedicated Sony customer, purchasing Sony products for most of my AV requirements. As a rule Sony products are very good performers for the price paid.I recently purchased the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray player, along with a Toshiba HD-DVD player (HD-A30).When the Sony works, it's night and day between Blu-Ray and watching DVD's on our old DVD player. We have a very respectable sound system which pushes the audio through the full compliment of all the Klipsch Synergy III, -3...

Solid player that has been misrepresented by earlier reviews
 
I got this player about a year ago as a Christmas present. It has always worked quite well. Some of the criticisms of the player are largely the result of the apparent ignorance of the reviewers. The player does not advertise True HD audio, so you can know that before you buy it. The player is a 1.0 player. That means that some of the newer discs are going to require a firmware update in order to play them. Some of the problems that other reviewers are describing sound very much like firmw...

Complete Junk
 
This review is from: Sony BDP-S301 Blu-Ray DVD Player Purchased this product several weeks ago. I've had nothing but problems. My copy of Pirates of the Caribbean would not play back correctly (fresh out of the shrinkwrap mind you, not a speck of dust or scratch, a completely virgin disc). The player woud freeze up at random during playback. I found out later it would freeze up and become unresponsive to remote input or front panel controls after being on for more than a ...

HD is great, player is not
 
I've had this player for about a year now. I get incredibly frustrated almost every time I use it. It takes about 1 minute to start up. While its booting, you cannot open the tray to put in a disc or take one out.I like many others have had the treat of a movie freezing up after about an hour. Then I play games with it for the next 20 minutes waiting for it to restart, and then deciding which part of the movie I am going to skip in order to at least see the end.Perhap...
