Sony BDP-S185 review
English

18/10/2011 UPDATE - Sony BDP-S185 review is now online here

 

Original post:

Just to confirm that our test of the small, bargain Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray player will be online here next week.

It's up and running in our test rooms, and we'll be comparing it with its big-brother Sony BDP-S380 plus Panasonic's entry player, the DMP-110.

I'll link to the review here once it's online.

Hi,

 

Have you managed to complete the s185 review and will it be posted this week? I have a purchasing decision to make this weekend and would love your guidance Smile

 

Regards,

Richard.

RE: Sony BDP-S185 review

Apologies, but a few unforeseen absences this week has meant the review is yet to be completed. We can say it's looking very good so far - it's certainly an impressive little player - but our more detailed opinion (including S380 comparison) will need to wait until next week. Sorry!

All the reviewers are up to their eye-balls in top-secret awards copy at the moment, so apologies for the delay but we'll have a review online in the early part of next week!

We certainly haven't dropped it - but what with it being Awards time, we've had more pressing priorities. Apologies again - I will remind team tomorrow...

RE: where's the review?

Why not just get a Sony BDP-S380 for £99.97 in Tesco?

[Edit. Scrub that. The S380 is discontinued according to the link above. That was quick!]

Play.com has the Sony BDP-S185 for £79.95:

Review imminent, I am promised.

And no, the S380 isn't discontinued, according to Sony....

Yes. Sorry. I should have said Tesco had discontinued the product and not Sony.

I said "that was quick" because JD only posted the Tesco BDP-S380 link 8 days ago.

I might buy one or two of these BDP-S185s for our daughters. Then I can start buying more Blu-ray discs. (We all borrow discs from each other and - because they only have DVD players - that has kept me from buying more than just a few movies on Blu-ray.)

So now I am interested in the BDP-S185 review too. (Our last two TVs and last DVD recorder and BD player were all bought on the strength of WHF 5 star reviews/awards and have all lived up to them.)
