To call the Sony BDP-S550 a budget Blu-ray player would be doing it a disservice to its myriad features, but what else do you call a Blu-ray player that costs around £250?Surprisingly, for the price, it looks and feels the crackers, mimicking some of S...

We know that a lot of important and interesting stuff has gone down since December last year, but consider this: the BDP-S550 is an old hand at reviews, having been tested in that issue, and back then it cost £350.Barely half a year on, it's more than...

The Sony BDP-S550 is a fully featured Blu-ray player with a wide array of ports and good image quality when playing Blu-ray discs and upscaled DVDs. Its main point of difference with sub-$500 Blu-ray players is its 7.1-channel analog outputs — you will need to decide if you think that this is worth the extra $150 you will pay to get the BDP-S550. Stylistically speaking, the Sony BDP-S550 looks slightly dull. A mostly plastic fascia and top-plate have a dull-blue hue, with the middle of the face...

The Sony BDP-S550 is priced reasonably at $500 and it's widely available. Though it's far from a limited edition, its quality in its presentation may knock the PS3 off the block as the raining king of Blu-ray. It meets the latest Blu-ray model requirement...
