Pros: Simple setup,reasonable load time,Extraordinary picture quality and sound
Cons: Remote is not backlit.
Summary: The Sony BDP-S300 second generation blu-ray disc player is entry level player.If you are a novice who is just learning about HDTV-VIDEO and you cant afford a top end player this is a model for you.I purchesd my Reconditioned Blue-ray from Greys on line for $365 with 12monts warranty.
I'm useing a Phillips 42" plasma with built in HD,and a Dennon AVR 2700 amp.
My Sony Blu-ray took me around 10 minutes to set up useing a HDMI cable and then run a RCA lead from my digital out on the TV to the digital input on my amp and got dolby digital sound from my amp(yes).The latest firmware version for the Sony BDP-S300 is
version 3.8 and if you have this version then a lot of the problems mentioned in other reviews Have been addresed,and your hd video playing experiance should be very enjoyable.
