The crystalline clarity of 1080p Blu-ray Disc movies(1) and DVD upscaling(2) that can bring your DVDs to the highest possible quality, mean your favorite movies have never looked or sounded so good. Add to that Sony's 24p True Cinema(2) and Cinema Tuned picture presets, which allow you to see any movie just the way its director intended, and all you'll need is a little popcorn to lose yourself in an HD world. Better yet, now Sony's Bravia Theatre Sync means that now you can control your compatible TV and AV systems(3) all from one remote.
From the Manufacturer
RGB Color Range
xvYCC Color Range
|Thanks to the adoption of a newly approved international color standard called xvYCC (an option in the HDMI v1.3 spec and which Sony participated in creating), the color space has been greatly expanded. |
All Sony XBR HDTVs support the xvYCC color profile (Extended YCC Colorimetry for Video Applications), or "x.v. color" for short. Standard RGB color space allows the display of a portion of the colors that are viewable to the human eye. The next generation "xvYCC" color space actually offers an available range of colors that exceeds what human eyes can recognize.
|So, where x.v. color expands the available range of colors your HDTV can display, Deep Color increases the number of colors your HDTV can display within that range, for smoother transitions from color to color.|

Well ok, this was bleeding edge when I got it (November 2007), and obviously hardware has gotten a lot faster. It also still doesn't do some Blu-Ray stuff that newer players can do, and apparently no amount of firmware upgrade will ever fix that. But I don't care much about anything other than playing discs that I rent from Netflix, so it's fine. Just takes soooooooooooooo long to start up or to load a Blu-Ray disc.
Can't count the number of times I've considered buying something newer and faster for $100, but hey, $100 is $100, and this thing still works (over five years later, right?). If only it would stop working ...

The unit is like new, even if is used and from 2007. However, I cannot get a nice and clear and high definition on any blue ray movie I have played so far. For me the quality of picture definition is as bad and poor as with my old Sony non blue ray I replaced. Don't know what is wrong.!

Let me preface my review by saying that I have owned several Sony products (televisions, stereo equipment, video equipment, etc.) and have always been quite pleased with the performance and quality. My experience with the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray player has been a completely different story. First of all, the Blu-ray player arrived with an out of date operating system, which required a firmware update (the first of two, which had to be sent by snail mail, since updates can not be downloaded onto a Mac). Both updates took several weeks to arrive, rendering my Blu-ray player useless, and creating an inconvenience. Shortly after the second update, the Sony factory 12 month warranty had lapsed. My Blu-ray player would not play any disks (DVD or Blu-ray, new or old). I called Sony customer for troubleshooting assistance, and after several processes to reset the player were attempted, the customer service rep advised me that I would need to send it in to Sony for repair at a cost of $200.00. When I explained that I did not wish to spend that much money to have it repaired, he suggested that I order a new one from him. I had to laugh. Why would anyone purchase a second Sony Blu-ray player after having such a negative experience with the first? My Sony BDP-S300 lasted just over one year. The machine that the Sony BDP-S300 replaced was an inexpensive, 9 year old RCA DVD player, which by the way, was still working when it was replaced. I made the mistake of giving it away. Needless to say, Sony will no longer be high on my list when purchasing new electronics. Buyer beware!

I've had this Blu-Ray player for 18 months now and I've had no problems viewing the latest Blu-Ray titles. You just need to update the firmware every so often. I've only done it 2X in 18 months. You download the firmware from [...] burn it to a CD pop in in and wait 10 minutes, wallah now compatible with newer Blu Rays. I've found the process to be simple. I just watched Wolverine a couple of days ago. Yes, the loading times are agonizingly slow (hence the three stars), but once old nelly boots up the picture and sound quality are fantastic. There are much better players on the market now, but this "oldie" is still trudging along. I'd recommend it to those with a limited budget, since you can pick up a used or refurbished one for under $[...]. Once you watch a Blu-Ray disk on your HD TV you will never want to go back to standard definition DVDs.

When I first bought my Sony BDP S300 I was impressed with the build quality and how sturdy it felt ! This is one great machine that has all the connections you need that looks beautiful wherever its placed in the house.
*Amount of Connections/Inputs*
*Well Designed Menus/Interface for the Player*
*No extra frills that the newer players have such as a built in web browser, but hey did you actually buy a Blu-Ray Player to surf the web o.O ??? Probally not ! So there are no Cons about this product that I can think of !

This was my first Blu-Ray player and I have to say that I am NOT impressed. While the picture and sound are both excellent from this unit, the player itself is FAR, FAR less than reliable. Approximately 75% of the time, this player experiences some kind of problem or error when playing a disc (including both Blu-Rays and regular DVDs). Most of the time, it either skips or freezes up entirely, requiring a lengthy shutdown and restart. These problems have continued after two separate (and supposedly successful) firmware upgrades, so I'm wondering if it isn't a matter of bad design or cheap manufacturing.
I have been a professional audio engineer for more than ten years and have used a lot of Sony equipment in that time. Most of the time, I have been very impressed with the quality of their gear. In this case, however, I think they dropped the ball (or perhaps rolled it out too early). Sad, Sony. Just sad.

I guess I am lucky, mine has worked fine. I also got lucky on the price, I bought it here on 2/17 for $350 with free shipping, $70 less than the price today. Not sure I'd pay $420 for it. I have tried about 20 movies, BD and DVD. It has player all but one (a DVD - Clay Pigeons) without problems. It is slow to power up and some BDs take a while to load. BDs look great on my 50" 720p Panasonic. The best feature is the up-converting, normal DVDs look great. The controls and settings are easy-to-use. The fact that (unlike my old, cheap Sony DVD player) this thing can't remember where you stopped a disk, is annoying and unfathomable. Netflix has ton of BD titles. Some BD are better than others in picture quality, but the best of them are awesome. If you lack technical sophistication wait a while before going to Blu-ray.

Note: the 4 star rating is for the quality of the image this BD player produces. I would give it only 2 stars for quickness of booting up, and initializing a disc.Read more
Works fine but this player is painfully slow by current standards
I got a completely broken unit. Remote doesn't work with brand new batteries, and it also ate my dvd.
Works OK but very slow to load a BD. Updating firm ware is a chore.
very quick delivery, securely wrapped.
For the player itself: exactly the solid and reliable piece I was looking for.
I like the deck. It's a bit slow starting up but that is minor.
