"Just an OK Player"2.5 starson by djsincla
Pros: Picture Perfect
Cons: Very slow to start and very slow with Java menus
Summary: Since this player was first announced, I was optimistic Sony's second player to the market would be a quality product. Unfortunately this is not the case with the BDP-S300. Out of the box the player comes with a green piece of paper warning of slow start time for first time use - It was slow all the time. Press the power on button on the remote and wait 45 seconds before you can load a disc. Slow response to scanning forward and backwards and discs coded with Java menus took several minutes to load. Overall a disappointing product.
