  • MKV (Matroska (.mkv) playback)

    Matorska support means that the player is capable of playing .mkv video files directly from a disc or a memory card, without converting them first to another format.

  Rating: 5 / 5 Value for money: 5 / 5

Priced correctly at $199.99, this is an excellent Blu-Ray player for any home theater setup. Seeing the output through a supplied HDMI cable in full 1080p, I have no regrets buying this product. With a USB port to listen to audio files from iPod or USB flash drive and capabilities for streaming internet video and music, I can find no downside to this product. The fact that it has integrated WiFi is a huge plus for my home, as I have no wiring around my TV so WiFi is necessary. While competitors price their normal Blu-Ray players at approximately $150 and an external WiFi dongle for an additional $60, Sony makes it worth my while to simply get their all in one package. Since 3D movies at home are still minimal, this product is all ready for playing 3D videos for future applications. Honestly, I can find no greater product for home theater applications.
