Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi

FEATURES:

• Built-in super WiFi
• Built-in Side-view app. for browsing or streaming
• I/P noise reduction
• Full HD 1080p
• Upscale DVDs to near 1080p
• Control Blu-ray with mobile device
• Built-in web browser
• Front USB port

REMOTE: RMT-B119A

RATING:
4 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi. The Sony BDP-3100 is very compact, lightweight and stylish and fits in small spaces. The set-up is easy and quick. The menu’s layout, although adequate, could use some improvement as noted by several users. The feature that up-scales DVDs to near 1080p will certainly enhance the picture quality of all your DVDs and enable you to watch your movies with vibrant, bright colors and crystal clear images. The I/P noise reduction also helps to deliver the best picture quality by eliminating playback noise. Not only does this Blu-ray disc player deliver top-notch picture quality, it offers much in the way of connectivity to the internet via the built-in WiFi and side-view app. Stream your music, and videos or watch movies from Sony’s Entertainment network, offering services like Netflix, YouTube, HuluPlus, Pandora, Amazon Instant Video, and more. You will also have access to apps exclusively designed for your TV. One disappointment noted by users about the apps is that they are in a fixed order and the order of apps cannot be adjusted, therefore, if you want the 40th app., for example, you have no choice but to scroll down until you reach it.

The part number for the remote that comes with this disc player is RMT-B119A. The remote control has buttons for Netflix and the Sony Entertainment Network, making these services as easy as a clicking of a button.

Some users have had problems with the screen going black, with no sound, and doing so off and on while watching movies. To remedy this problem the “deep color” setting must be turned off. Once this setting is turned off the problem is resolved. The audio capabilities of this Blu-ray function well but one user noted that to get the full HD master audio sound that this Blu-ray is capable of delivering, the “audio mix” setting must be turned off. Adjustments certainly need to be made, but this Blu-ray disc player can really pack a punch when all the settings are in sync and for the bargain price, you can’t go wrong.

PROS:
• Stunning picture quality
• Built-in WiFi
• Upscales DVDs to near 1080p resolution
• Inexpensive

CONS:
• Needs tweaking of settings
• No control of the order of apps
• User interface could use improvement

Welcome to a review of the Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi. This Blu-ray disc player is loaded with lots of features for its low, affordable price. Its streamlined appearance is contemporary and compact and will fit nicely with your TV and other home theater equipment.

With 2 USB ports, you can also connect your thumb drive to one of the 2 ports and listen to your music, and view videos and pictures on your TV screen.

You will be viewing your movies, sporting events and games with vibrant color, and crystal clear images.

A user commented that last year many users complained about the bad functionality of text input on last year’s player. This year’s player is equipped with a full QWERTY style onscreen keyboard, making it much easier to use. A feature missing from this player is that it has no analog or digital optical outputs, not even for audio, so any equipment you have that is not HDMI compatible will not function. No HDMI cable is included with this player, therefore you must purchase one separately. Another noted complaint is that the apps take a long time to work and the search function also takes a long time to post results. Given the low price, however, for all that this Blu-ray disc player delivers, it is definitely worth purchasing.

PROS:
• Inexpensive
• Built-in super WiFi
• Compact, modern design
• High resolution picture quality

CONS:
• No analog or digital optical outputs
• Apps are slow to work

Westinghouse T7HW 1080p 120hz LED HDTV Series

• 1080p resolution
• 120hz refresh rate
• Sleek, modern design
• 100,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio
• 2 HDMI inputs
• PC connectivity

REMOTE: RMT-22

RATING: 4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse T7HW LED HDTV Series. If you are looking for an affordable, basic, good quality HDTV to purchase, this is the series for you. What it lacks for in extra features, it makes up for in picture quality. The contemporary, slim design fits well in any space and is easily mountable on a wall due to its light weight. Some buyers have remarked that the TV has no buttons on the front except for the on/off switch meaning the remote control is necessary to watch TV and change channels or set preferences. A vast majority of flat panel TVs in this day and age however are made the same way. The set-up is easy and the 2 HDMI inputs allow for hooking up of several devices including gaming consoles, sound systems, and a computer. There are also headphone jacks for your convenience. With wide horizontal and vertical angles, you can enjoy remarkable picture quality from any area in the room. This series offers stunning images and brilliant, vivid colors with lots of details. For the low price, what more could you want?

The remote that comes with this series is the RMT-22. It is a standard, basic model and easy to use.

The sound quality for this series, as with many slim, flat screen TVs, is ordinary. Some users have commented that a muffled/hollow sound comes out from the speakers. Others are content with the sound and have no issues. If you are particular about high-end sound and want a “surround sound” type of experience when you watch movies or play games, there is a simple solution. By attaching a sound bar, good quality speakers or a sound system to the TV, you will be able to achieve superior sound quality and enjoy your new TV.

PROS:
• Low, bargain price
• Crystal clear images and brilliant, vibrant colors
• Wide vertical and horizontal angles
• Easy set-up

CONS:
• Average sound quality
• No internet connectivity

Westinghouse UW32S3PW 32” Class 720p 60Hz LED HDTV

FEATURES:

• 720p high definition resolution
• Ultra thin design
• 100,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio
• 176 degree vertical and horizontal angles
• Parental control
• Built-in digital tuner
• PC connectivity
• Energy efficient

REMOTE: RMT-22

RATING: 4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse UW32S3PW 32” Class 720p 60Hz LED HDTV. This model is modern and sleek with its ultra slim design. This 32” is perfect for any wall or stand and is easy to mount because of its light weight. The set-up is easy, however, some consumers are not satisfied that the user manual comes in the form of a CD instead of an actual printed copy. This can be problematic for users with no computer or little knowledge of computers and how to read and navigate a document on CD.

The UW32S3PW comes equipped with only one button on the front, the on/off switch. For those people who often displace or lose their remote control, this can be an annoyance. Although this model’s resolution is only 720p, unless you get up very close can you tell that it is not 1080p. The picture quality is excellent, delivering brilliant clear, crisp images whether you are watching movies, playing a game, or have your PC connected to use as a monitor. Its wide vertical and horizontal angles allow anyone in the room to view with ease, no matter where they are seated.

The remote control that comes with this model is part number RMT-22. It has been noted that at times the remote control is slow to respond and needs to be positioned directly in front of the TV to work.

The biggest complaint about this model, as is with other ultra slim flat screen models, is the sound quality. Users have said that the sound is often muffled and sounds tinny, as though coming from a tin cup. For many, the sound quality is adequate, but for those who desire a more enhanced and high-end sound there is an easy solution. Simply attach a sound bar, speakers or a good quality sound system and you will be ready to experience a true theater-like experience with sharp, crisp images that are hard to beat for the low price.

PROS:
• Sharp, crisp picture
• Ultra slim, sleek design
• Easy to mount
• Parental control
• PC connection

CONS:
• Average sound quality
• User manual comes in the form of a cd, not a printed copy
