Sony BDP-SX1000


$299.99 Released March, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Faithfully maintains aspect ratios. Sound playback is decent for the price, comparable to a larger laptop's speakers. Screen can be swivelled on multiple angles, or even laid flat like a tablet - very convenient, not available in all portable players.

The Cons:Has compatibility issues with digital formats; best to stick to actual Blu-Ray and DVD discs. Remote control is very sensitive and can accidentally turn the player on unintentionally, draining batteries. Screen remains on when connecting to an external display.
