Sony BDP-S1700 Smart ICOS Multi Region All Zone Code Free Blu-ray Player, Be careful with the region-free claim

Professionals: excellent image,uncomplicated to set up and navigate downsides:really awful create quality,flimsy situation,re,otes little and doesnt alway open the drawer,2 times a disc has been trapped inside of. Bought the multi region product so paid out much much too much for it.

To change the worst item of media tools at any time ordered panasonic dmp-bdt370eb 3d smart blu-ray player, so swore i would never ever acquire something else panasonic. Did a great deal of looking through and uncovered this sony product came out pretty properly, so searched a bit much more and observed tls did a region free (blue-ray and dvd) version so i ordered. So diverse to the panasonic which was speed sensible like a online video recorder extremely slow and quickly bewildered. The sony is quick to load and the community menu procedure functions very very well. I have connected up netflix and amazon primary and all the things will work properly together. I have a ton of american (region 1) and asian (region three) dvd’s as nicely as british (region two) and all get the job done seamlessly. Have no blue-ray regions besides b for europe and they do the job good.

Gained the sony ubp-x800 multi region 4k extremely hd participant yesterday and linked it to a 2012 samsung ue d8000 46′ led television set and was blown away by the effectiveness. The pq and seem good quality is extraordinary. Preparing to enhance my television set at some place to 4k. Only criticism is that the remote regulate is not back lit like the oppo brand gamers. Hope sony will use backlight for the remote regulate in the future. Really advise you go and obtain this participant from sony. The oppo players are way around priced in my viewpoint.

Comments from buyers

“To replace the worst item of Media equipment ever purchased Panasonic DMP-BDT370EB 3D , Great 4K player that can play anything!, *EXCEPTIONAL* SONY 4K BLU RAY PLAYER!!!!”

Easy to use and functions like a allure.

Operates wonderful, really great, would endorse.

Are not able to test product because wrapped tightly and is meant for a christmas present. On the other hand all seems to be ok externally.

It didn’t perform a region 2 bluray dvd for some motive so not extremely pleased.

Got this as have quite a couple usa discs needed a great multiregion dvd participant as i have leading of selection panasonic 4k participant which sits on best of the sony in living room. The seiki multiregion participant costing only £68 does a good work participating in blu ray etc is now confined to the bed room alongside with the samsung 4k player. Anyway hats off to sony for a great player my only gripes is in the applications no itv player and no analogue output.

Speedy shipping will work perfectly advocate to any individual.

Purchased this as an all in one particular solution as my region a player had just packed up and i experienced a new 4k oled ready for some discs. Its a really good machine – substantially a lot more good than sony’s much less expensive players – and definitely appears to be and feels the component. There is no display screen on the unit alone which is a minor little bit troublesome but not a biggie. The multi-region facet of this functions perfectly and i am incredibly joyful with it – couldn’t be less complicated.It also played what ever dvd’s with no trouble. 4k discs seem wonderful as you would assume. The machine is pretty tranquil and i can barely hear it when its taking part in anything – a big moreover for me. Ok its a great deal of revenue for an all in 1 solution but i would say its certainly well worth it. And there is the pleasant basic safety net of the excess three 12 months assure from tps as well which is wonderful to have.

I’m applying mine with a jvc e-change 4k projector and it is fantastic. Very uncomplicated to alter blu-ray zones (dvd regions are picked immediately). Nevertheless, a term of warning if you are going to use with a projector and you have to have to web-site the participant some length absent from it – even with a really highly-priced hdmi 2. 10-meter guide, i just obtained a ‘no hdmi input’ message displayed on my monitor (it was wonderful with a 5-meter direct). But i spoke to the supplier by ‘phone and he was incredibly helpful and instructed i use two 5m potential customers with a hdmi 2. repeater amplifier among. I acquired a eluteng one for under £15 from amazon – see eluteng hdmi two. extension 18gbps hdr 4k television signal booster feminine to feminine hdmi connector repeater amplifier adapter up to 60 meters for hdtv ps4 xbox computer. It requires its electricity from the hdmi enter, but it is also equiped with a usb-fashion more electric power enter. I obtain this extra electrical power is just not necessary for standard blu-rays and 4k/uhd disks, but the image is instead flickery with three-d.

Plays all region dvds and blu rays ( not that frequent ) so have been equipped to play japanese blu rays really effortlessly.

Exceptional dvd/blu-ray participant that i identified straightforward to set up while i must say that i basically only use it for enjoying discs from numerous regions and not for any of the net solutions obtainable on the player. By the way it arrives with a hdmi cable. My only slight criticism is the hand controller, it’s the brief design that extra electronic firms seem to favour (between five and 6 inches) relatively than the standard sized 8 inchs which was so simple to use with 1 hand.
