I bought the BDVE300 to go with a Sony 52Z5100 HDTV that I also bought from Amazon. I bought it mainly because I wanted to match the two items for both esthetic and practical reasons. The black speakers match the TV perfectly. I can also control both with one controller and easily run the TV sound through the HTS.
I am not an audiophile. So I didn't try to compare technical specs. This review is strictly subjective (in part to counter the one above) and is based on what I have heard while using the system with the TV.

The room in which the TV is located in is a 20 X 20 den/family room with a connecting dining area and kitchen. The entire area is open. It has wooden floors with a single oval area rug in front of the fireplace and TV.

I found the sound to be exceptionally clear and clean, without distortion or unevenness. I can tell a definite difference between the TV speakers and the BDV300 speakers. The BDV300 sound seems more spacious. It fills the room without blowing you away. The sound has more fullness to it than the TV speakers.
I have not tried it at full volume. I have never felt the need to do so. I have watched two musical DVDs, a Mary Chapin Carpenter concert and the 10th anniversary recording of Les Miserables. In both cases the music sounded beautiful and clear. You could hear all of nuances of the voices and the words of the songs were distinct and clear.

If you want strong bass that shakes the room, I am not sure this is the system for you. The bass is there but it is blended in with the other sounds. I am sure I can adjust it for greater effect. However, I am currently running the system at default values.

As for the lack of an S-air wireless cartridge, as mentioned by the reviewer above.

Here is my honest review about this product....I got it free with my Sony 52" W5100 TV purchase from Amazon.

Pros:
-->It is a complete package....it has a blu ray player, Ipod docking station, and the regular 5.1 channel sound system.
--> It comes with a sound calibration unit. What this basically does is you set all your speakers around you where you want them installed and then set the calibration unit at the place where you sit to watch your TV, like your couch....and then the calibration unit will tell you if your speakers are optimally arranged and will help you finalize the exact position of your speakers around you to give you optimal effect. This feature was really helpful...
--> It upscales image to 1080p
--> It has the same XMB system that sony features. This makes life very easy...trust me...also it syncs with your Sony TV and you can use 1 remote for both systems
--> It has internet capability....and very easy to use as well...just connect a Ethernet cable to it and you can browse HD content over the web using your remote as a keypad.
--> Ipod docking station is very helpful since we have 2 ipods, 2 iphones...all our music is on them, so you can connect them directly to your HT system and listen to music.
--> 1000 W of total power output gives you really good sound...unless you plan to start a recording studio or something....this system will be perfect for good sound

Cons:
--> Most irritable is the speaker cable length.....my rear speakers barely reach behind my sofa if i run the wires around the walls....in other systems, even though the cables may be short, you can still buy a longer 16gauge cable and run it around. In this system, the ends that go into the blu ray player are soldered into a plastic connector.

Well i bought this system on black friday in walmart and i got it for a decent price. To hook it up it took me around 30 to 40 minutes. It came with a cd that guided you throughly very well. All the cable connections are color coded making it easier for those who never had a theater system. Even though the system sounded good, i still expected more from a Sony brand. The level sound only goes up to 32, and sometimes i found myself at 25 because i couldn't hear right. The system was fairly fast, the menu interface similar to that of a ps3 and played really fast. The blu-rays look great and sounds the best out of all the other. You want a full experience out of this get an hdmi cable since it lacks one and the audio outputs because it also lacks that too. I ended up returning it because the connector to the ipod dock had a malfunction and it would not play the ipod. Overall this is a great system for those that never had one. But if you're looking for better sound and a better experience look toward the other brands such as Panasonic, Lg, and Samsung. =) hope this helped. I have the Panasonic SC-BT200 1000W 7.1 Channel Blu-ray. Look into that, it is cheaper and comes with cooler assets and better sound.

I bought this home theater for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loves it! I hooked the whole thing up within a couple of hours, and it only took that long because I had to run the wires under a rug and build speaker stands in the process. Overall, set up was very easy. The sound is great and I personally love that it has an adapter for my iPhone (in airplane mode). In and of itself, the system is a great upgrade from the poor sound quality of his flat screen Bravia TV. He was really surprised and delighted.

The only disappointment was that I didn't realize when it bought it that in order to use the S-Air function, you actually need TWO things - an S-Air receiver ($90)and an S-Air transmitter ($50). I initially thought only the transmitter was needed and bought it, but the receiver is also needed to connect to the rear speakers. Spending an additional $150 beyond the cost of the system wasn't an option for me, so I'm returning the transmitter. That is more my fault for not understanding, but Sony doesn't exactly do a great job communicating what all is needed either.
