Sony BDP-S1700 User Review

  • giandougl
    Sony BDP-S1700 Cinavia free..
    Review of Sony BDP-S1700 blu-ray player/recorder by giandougl, Mar 30, 2016.
    Just bought this brand new Smart Blu-ray player 30/03/2016 at Argos which plays MP4 movies both on the disc drive and the usb pen drive stick.
    Cinavia copyright protection is not detected in either case.
    I found it a nuisance with certain films I wanted to watch,having an error message and muted sound interruption..
    Unit can't be DVD upgraded to Region Free even tried with an external hack..
    Hey-oh! you can't have everything..LOL

    I believe the Cinavia is a product introduced by Sony as a deterrent for copying, so it seems strange to now sell a unit made by them, that by-passes their own anti-copying startegy?
    This item was purchased for £59.00 from Argos in 2016. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Good product and beats some more expensive machines.

    Cons

    • Having a 12volt adapter attached instead a mains supply for power
