The Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray player sports a sleek and compact design that not only plays Blu-ray discs and DVDs but allows you to enjoy internet based content without the need for internet connectivity on your HD TV.
The BDP-S185 plays Blu-rays in excellent Full HD 1080p resolution and is also capable of upscaling your DVD collection to near HD quality. Featuring an Ethernet port, the player lets you plug the Blu-ray player into your home network and access internet services like BBC iPlayer, LOVEFiLM and YouTube.
The HDMI connection gets all entertainment content right through to your HD TV and more or less turns your TV into a SMART TV. The player also comes with a USB input that would allow you to plug in a USB pen drive or an external HDD and play movies and songs and view JPG images directly from the storage device.
Finished in a compact design with black colour, the blu-ray player adapts to its surroundings. The absence of SCART and inability to play DivX content are a couple of cons of this player but, the price may just well suffice to do away with these features.
The Sony BDPS185B SMART Internet Enabled Blu-ray Player is available from £59.97.
