Sony BDP S3500 Blu-ray Player Review!!
Hi everyone this is Lawrence WaysToWatch.com
and this is my review of the Sony BDP S3500 Blu-ray player. The BDP
S3500 is a simple straightforward Blu-ray player with the ability to stream movies.
It doesn’t play 3d Blu-ray disc nor does it upscale to 4K. The BDP S3500 has an HDMI jack, digital
audio jack and Ethernet connection. And on the front there’s one USB port. The USB
port can be used for a thumb drive or for a PlayStation controller. The small and
simple design of the BDP S3500 will blend in with any audio visual layout. Once you
get past the setup process, the user interface of the BDP S3500 is super easy
to navigate. On your home screen you get all of the common apps you use regularly.
The remote is the cheapest part of this experience but it gets the job done. The
remote is made of plastic is lightweight and will fit nicely in small hands.
Sony’s TV Side View app is a remote app that is available on both Android and
iOS devices. While I used it I had a few issues in putting text in but this app
normally works really well. When I reviewed the Sony BDP S6500 it was
clear that Sony’s Blu-ray players do not play PS3 games well. So skip this device when it comes to
gaming but when it comes to playing Blu-ray disc it loads disc really
fast. Every time I choose to watch a movie on Blu ray vs streaming it, I’m
reminded of the much higher quality that comes with Blu-ray discs. With over 80
options every major streaming service available
to BDP S3500 but while trying Netflix it felt slow and sluggish. Overall the
Sony BDP S3500 is really for the budget shopper. If you can afford to
spend an extra $30 I suggest buying the faster more feature-rich Sony BDP
S6500. The faster performance alone is worth the money. If you choose to buy the
Sony BDP S3500 it will serve the purpose of a consistent Blu-ray player. Thanks for
