Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Player Price at Amazon

Amazon.com has cut the price of the Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray player to $258 with free shipping (from $399). The player received a 7.0 out of 10 from CNET, who liked the unit’s “excellent Blu-ray image quality and very good DVD upscaling” and its “compact size.” The BDP-S350 didn’t originally ship as a Profile 2.0 player, but subsequent firmware updates have added the ability.

Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Player
The Sony BDP-S350 is a step up in quality from the BDP-S300, which we just mentioned had its price lowered to $199. It’s thinner and faster (less load time for Blu-ray discs) than its slightly cheaper brother, the BDP-S300. EngadgetHD also reviewed this unit and also noted the quicker loading times and that the player had no problems with every Blu-ray disc they threw at it. Their biggest complaint:

Our favorite feature of the BDP-S300 (source direct) is missing and the 24p “auto” feature didn’t work on our favorite 1080p30 title, Planet Earth (BBC). So to watch it at its native resolution, we had to stop the movie to change the frame rate to the native 30.
