Sony BDP-S580 review

 

If you're buying a Blu-ray player in 2011, you're probably as interested in streaming-media services as you are in Blu-ray. The BDP-S580 is a tantalizing option for a streaming-media fan, packing in more services (including Netflix, Amazon Instant, and...

The Sony BDP-S580 is a faster-than-average Blu-ray player and its exterior design is one of our favorites. The BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and the best current lineup of streaming-media services, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, Vudu,...

The BDP-S580's user interface can be tedious to navigate. And even once you load a streaming service like Netflix, Sony's custom interface displays small cover art that can be tough to read. The BDP-S580 also lacks the popular MLB.TV service, as well...

The Sony BDP-S580 has built-in Wi-Fi and more streaming services than all competing Blu-ray players, but its user interface is mediocre.

Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray Player

 

It hasn't taken long for 3D Blu-ray players to become affordable for the mainstream, but is going for a relatively cheap option going to work in the long run? We grabbed hold of the Sony BDP-S580 to find out….

With a huge array of features and excellent picture quality, there’s plenty to love about the Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray player. The clunky interface is a pain, but if you think your time using it will be just a fraction of the time you spend watching...

Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray player

 

Sony BDP-S580 review: Built-in Wi-Fi makes this Blu-ray player convenient, but the price is steep

Good design ; As many features as any other BD player

High price over BDP-S480 just for Wi-Fi

The Sony BDP-S580 adds only Wi-Fi over the BDP-S480, and comes at a $50 price premium. While it adds convenience we don't think this small inclusion is worthy of its pricetag. Otherwise, it's a competent and powerful Blu-ray player that has the added...

Sony BDP-S580 3D Blu-ray Disc Player

 

Slow disc loading times hold back this otherwise excellent, full-featured Blu-ray player.

Built-in Wi-Fi. 3D support. Lots of integrated online media services. Lacks on-board memory.

Slow to load BD-Live discs. Flimsy-feeling remote.

Sony BDP-S580 3D Blu-ray Player

 

Sony’s latest Blu-ray player on the market is the 3D enabled BDP-S580. Blu-ray has always been Sony’s baby and, since the PS3 was the de facto standard in Blu-ray playback for several years, people came to expect quality from standalone Sony...

Overall, the Sony BDP-S580 was definitely a disappointment. From the get-go, it’s slim construction and poorly designed buttons gave the unit a cheap feel. Then to find out that this newer model was actually slower than the S570 and did not include any...

Sony continues to release Blu-ray players that are packed with features, and the BDP-S580 Blu-ray player is no exception. HTR Reviewer Adrienne Maxwell takes a look at the BDP-S580 to see how it measures up against its contemporaries....

The BDP-S580 supports 3D playback ; It supports BD-Live and BonusView/PIP ; It has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources ; The player has integrated WiFi and supports a wide variety of online media services, including...

This 3D model does not include dual HDMI outputs to send separate signals to your 3D TV and A/V receiver, and it doesn't support 2D-to-3D conversion ; It also lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an...

The BDP-S580 is a full-featured Blu-ray player offered at a very competitive price. In addition to 3D playback, you get integrated WiFi, SACD playback, DLNA media streaming, and a thorough assortment of Web services. You also get a few perks that I've...

Among the four blu-ray players in Sony's 2011 lineup, the Sony BDP-S580 is the second from the top and comes with a full set of mouthwatering features. It comes fully equipped with the latest in home entertainment such as a full HD 3D feature and...

Sony BDP-S580

 

Overall excellent DVD BLURAY Player. A matter of fact I have one regular DVD player, one DVD BLURAY Player without WI-FI hookup, one 3D DVD BLURAY Player with WI-FI hookup. All of them I believe are same make and models, but different generations and...

The only bad thing I could say about this machine is Netflix & Hulu app installed on the devices. Not very easy to use on these devices. Thumbnails too small, doesn't save your place in a show. So if you lose your place you have to FF and watch ads all...
