I ordered that exact one on Saturday, also from Amazon. Brilliant price for the features - it was winning value for money awards when it was selling for 250, so 160 is a bargain. It's due to be delivered on Wednesday, so I'll let you know if it's any good!

I've got this one:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-BDPS370...4088678&sr=8-1

Cant recommend it highly enough! Amazing picture and sound, has BBC iPlayer and Lovefilm etc. built into it, and it will also stream media from your PC over your home network. But best of all its 99! No brainer really.

Tesco are doing this for 99, very tempted and it gets fantastic reviews.

Went made today and bought 3 new led back light a pair off 42" Panasonics and a 19" panasonic led for the kitchen .....

What i need to know is about this Panasonic Digital Living Network Alliance DLNA that can send recorded material wireless to the other compatible devices in the home hence buying 3 new led tvs ...

What Panasonic BR HDD do i buy ??? is it like a sky plus box that has the advantage off sending the recorded material to another TV without wires


Looks bloody impressive !


What do you guys know ?

As far as I know the only difference between the two is the 373 has a backlit remote control. Is that really worth 30?

It gives more options on the spec on the web site, if thats the only difference, then no it aint worth 30 buddy. I am gonna go double check that out.

Just bought the s370 from tesco and a cheap bluray disc to see how it performs, I am over the moon with it, the picture quality for BR is outstanding, you can even see the hair on the womans nipples and upscaling is way better than the last Toshiba upscaler I had. Well worth the 99 and recommended.

Cheers for your help and advice guys!!

Shame you cannot upgrade the software easily.
Especially in the BR boxes and traditionally Sony have been the worst for this with AV stuff.

The PS3 on the other hand ...

Software can be updated just as easily on the S370 as the PS3 (I have both).

Sounds like you're sorted, but still, I got my S570 yesterday and it's superb. Now I'm trying to work out how to get my home OpenSolaris file server to work as a UPnP/DLNA server so I can watch my film and TV collections through it...
