While shopping around for a Blu-Ray disc player, I read threw a string of reviews on some of the more popular models in the market and discovered there were a lot of buzz on the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blue-ray Disc Player. The Sony Blue-ray player has tones of favorable reviews all over the internet and is the best-selling model on many online stores such as Amazon.com.
Out of curiosity, I went to a store nearby to take a closer look at the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blue-ray Disc Player. The first thing I noticed about is was its new super slim and sleek design. It was much smaller than its predecessors with just over 2″ in height and about 9″ long. This is a big improvement over the previous models.
I brought some blu-ray movies and DVDs to test it out at the store to check out the image quality of the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blue-ray Disc Player. The start up time of the machine was quick and the visual quality is comparable, if not slightly better than my friend’s Panasonic DMP-BD30k. I then tried playing one my DVDs on the blu-ray player and was completely blown away by the video quality. Because Sony’s Blu-ray players run on 40 megabits per second, DVDs movies will automatically look better on this blu-ray machine.
Cinema movies are recorded at 24 frames per second and blu-ray movie formats are mastered at this rate. Because of this the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blue-ray Disc Player can output movies at1080/24p, giving you the best cinema-like experience possible.
The user interface and configurations of the Sony BDP-S350 1080p Blue-ray Disc Player is similar to other Sony DVD players. The cable configurations are also very simple, where you can easily set up the machine within minutes.
