    Other decks may offer an array of bells, whistles, toots and whizzbangs, but this Sony refines the basics

    Sony's budget Blu-ray deck has a basic spec, but striking pictures

    Sony RDR-HXD870 review

    10  

    The RDR-HXD870 comes from a new breed of cutting-edge digital recorders that offer 1080p upscaling, allowing you to make the most of DVDs and TV recordings on Full HD TVs. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg

    If this exciting new HDD/ DVD combi deck is anything to go by, Sony's latest range could finally oust Panasonic from the top spot. It boasts a comprehensive feature set and a realistic price tag. But does it have the performance?

    Thanks to the PlayStation 3, the Blu-ray Disc Association is claiming minor and major victories in the HD format conflict, but while some software is shifting in significant numbers, organising a ticker-tape parade through Home Cinema Central is premature.

    8  

    Finally the long wait for Sony's first dedicated Blu-ray player is over and initial appearances suggest that our patience has paid off. Cosmetically, at least, the BDP-S1E is far removed from the Blu-ray-spinning PS3

    The debut standalone Blu-ray disc player from the format's chief protagonist has hit the UK. And despite its slightly brutish appearance and tedious loading time, in terms of pictures the Sony BDP-S1E is a hands-down winner

    The most vociferous advocate of Blu-ray has finally released a BD player. Sony's BDP-S1E is the company's first foray into the standalone HD deck market and I'd go as far as saying it's a better AV bet than the PS3

    Sony takes Freeview to the next level with a HDD DVD recorder that can automatically records all of the programmes in a series at the push of a button. It's not quite Sky, but it's getting there

    There has often been a trade off in features for the price when itcomes to recording digital TV. You can opt for subscription-based recorders such as Sky or TV Drive with sophisticated features but ongoing costs

    Sony Blu-Ray recorder BDZ-S77 review

     

    When Sony launched the world's first Blu-Ray DVD recorder at a quiet Tokyo press conference recently, it could hardly have been more understated. Sony PR staff told us they had no fixed expectations for sales and, a few weeks later, when we finally had a chance to review the BDZ-S77 for ourselves, they remained tight-lipped about how many units had actually been sold.
