Sony BDP-S3700 review

 

An impressive picture and decent sound make for a good value Blu-ray player...

Detailed picture ; Solid upscaler ; Smooth motion ; Subtle contrast

Would benefit from a more dynamic sound

A low-cost home cinema setup would welcome the addition of this Blu-ray player

Sony BDP-S3700 review

 

With 4K Blu-ray having finally arrived in 2016 and streaming players costing as little as $30 , it seems almost "retro" to be buying a 1080p disc player these days. Or does it? Standard Blu-ray discs lack the benefits of HDR but can still look better...

The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player demonstrates good features and performance for the money. The number of streaming apps is solid, and disc loading times are fairly respectable.

Entering text in apps is laggy and frustrating. The implementation of the PlayStation Now gaming app is relatively poor.

The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player offers a lot of features for little money but a lack of input responsiveness can spoil some of the fun.

The Sony BDP-S3700 is a mid-range Blu-ray player with built-in wi-fi and smart apps. You'll also be able to connect your smartphone and cast content from it to your TV. But how well does this player do the basics, such as play Blu-ray discs and DVDs?...

Sony BDP-S3700 review

 

The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-Ray player is an excellent mid-range device, offering playback of 2D Blu-Ray disks, DVDs & CDs, as well as streaming content from Netflix, the BBC iPlayer and from connected smartphones, tablets and PCs. Fast Wi-Fi support is...

The Sony BDP-S3700 looks set to be Sony's most popular Blu-Ray player for 2016, thanks to its well-balanced set of features. The player omits 3D playback, but includes Wi-Fi support and smart content, making it the "Goldilocks" option for the majority...

Brilliant picture easy to operate and set up.

 

Bought this DVD as it had internet features such as Amazon Prime Netflix, BBC iPlayer etc and saved me the cost of a fire stick or replacing my as my TV is not a smart TV. So easy to use too

Great features, picture and sound.

 

I bought this Sony from the Chester branch, which was busy when I arrived. The picture is great, even on dvd, the apps it has already loaded are very useful. Connect with WiFi or ethernet and you're ready to go in no time. My grateful thanks to Matt...
