Sony BDP-S590 Review
With lots of features to its credit, the Sony BDP-S590 has lots of appeal. But some Sony BDP-S590 reviews indicate it suffers from a problem common to lower-cost Blu-ray players: difficulty streaming wireless video. One Sony BDP-S590 review at Gadget Review approvingly cites its many features, including a dedicated Netflix button on the remote control, and concludes that 3D Blu-ray playback is excellent. Most consumers likewise report good things about this player. At Walmart, for example, Sony BDP-S590 reviews say the player loads discs quickly, the user interface is easy to navigate, and the player is easy to set up. Sony BDP-S590 reviews at Best Buy mention that movies look fantastic and others posted at Amazon comment on the player's responsiveness and rich, vibrant playback. And yet, we read a number of reports by users who posted Sony BDP-S590 reviews at all of these sites asserting that the player freezes up when streaming video.
The Sony BDP-S590 (starting at $148, Amazon) is a 3D Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi. It boasts two USB ports instead of the usual one, and includes an HDMI port and digital audio output as well as an Ethernet connection. This Sony model supports DTS-HD, Dolby Digital TrueHD, and other surround sound formats.
Sony's BDP-S590 is a deceny, full-featured Blu-ray player. Some users report problems with its ability to stream video, but we found relatively fewer gripes about this issue than with other models. The Sony BDP-S590 is a tad pricier than our top budget picks, but not by much. Sony fans will like this one.
