Thanks to the inclusion of Gracenote music and video recognition technology, the S can access their database and identify the content that your listening to or watching. In terms of file support the coverage is excellent and it's good to see that lossless audio has been added. Sony's remote app has had an upgrade and this year is called Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player SideView but remains one of the best, offering control not only of Sony's Blu-ray players but also their TVs and Home Theatre systems.
TV Side View is freely available for both iOS and Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player operating systems and can be used on smartphones and tablets. There is an attractive user interface that offers full control of the player through a simplified or full interface. Other features include providing details on the content you are watching, finding media content spread across various services or devices, messaging about the content you are watching, a full QWERTY touch-screen keyboard and a touch pad cursor.
The digital nature of both Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player and HDMI means that any Blu-ray player should look identical to any other Blu-ray player, provided the manufacturer isn't interfering with the signal. Unfortunately Sony has some 'previous' in this particular department and so it proved again with the S, although thankfully the player defaults to the best setting.
Unfortunately the obvious choice, Theatre Room, has Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player somewhat 'baggy' gamma curve and so the best option is actually Standard, which appears to leave the signal largely unmolested. In an improvement on last year, the noise reduction controls in the Standard Picture Quality Mode default to zero, which means the picture appears sharp, well defined and artefact free.

We watched the whole of the final season of Spartacus and the S did a fantastic job of delivering every skin pore, speck of dirt and jet of blood. The same was true with the Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player Blu-ray of Texas Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player, which whilst not a great film, is a surprisingly well shot 3D feature. The presence of Sony's W9 gave us an opportunity to investigate Sony's Triluminos Colour feature, which the manufacturer claims delivers a wider colour palette.
Frankly we're dubious as to the merits of Triluminos, especially when it comes to Blu-ray players.
However given that fact we fail to see how a Blu-ray player can output anything other than Rec. Certainly in the case of the S, we regard Triluminos Colour as nothing more than marketing mumbo jumbo.
The S had no problems with cadence detection and deinterlacing was excellent with Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player jaggies or other artefacts. The Sony also had no problems with the video resolution loss test, correctly processing the moving portion of the image and leaving the background free of artefacts. The S was thus able to handle discs with content encoded Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player i without any problems, which is very useful for anyone who watches a lot of concert films or BBC programmes on Blu-ray.
In our tests it correctly scaled standard definition images without any loss of detail or unwanted ringing and in the deinterlacing tests was equally as assured, with no jaggies or Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player unwanted artefacts apparent. In the cadence tests the player also performed flawlessly, correctly detecting all the most common cadence types without any problems.

The player also had no problems with the test displaying film material with scrolling video text, the text was always clearly readable without any shredding. Touch-sensitive buttons might look cool, but they are easily activated by accident.
No more drop-down panel for the current crop of media devices, and the Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player just features a simple door. However, the disc drive door is flimsy and held on by what might as well be bent paper clips.

Considering this is one of the only two things you'll touch on a regular basis -- the disc tray and the eject button -- the poor build quality here is disappointing. It mimics the look of previous Blu-ray players with a horizontal menu and vertically assorted apps.
If you've used a PS3 before you'll know whether or not this is your cup of tea. The remote control is compact and has most of the shortcuts you need, including a dedicated Netflix button. It's pretty easy to use, though Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player not backlit, and the "display" button is a little hard to find.
Features Though many Blu-ray players, including this Sony, support 3D playback, it's no longer a major marketing point. Instead, Sony is highlighting the player's networking capabilities with a feature it calls "Super Wi-Fi," which supposedly offers a "stronger, Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player wireless connection.
The video-streaming services on offer here are quite broad, with Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus and Vudu all accounted for.
