How Much?

The Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player is one of the best budget blu-ray players out there, with a price tag of only $89.99.

Who Would Buy This?

This will definitely be appreciated by viewers who want to get the most out of their players, starting from video and audio playback quality, to the wealth of options and functionalities they couldn’t get from their old DVD players. HD picture quality and sound are definitely winners in every discerning viewer’s book.

Things We Like

Sometimes, having a high definition TV is not enough. It should be paired with an equally ‘high definition’ player, and the Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player fits the bill perfectly. We like how its full HD 1080 playback also comes with a clear, rich, and very detailed video and image quality, coupled with Dolby TrueHD sound. For your convenience, and in order to avoid wasting time, there is also a Quick Start/Load button that lets you watch movies much faster.

But another standout feature that we like about this model is its streaming option. It even has a Live Streaming functionality. Being able to stream over 200 services also broadens your options, and since you can easily connect to the Sony Entertainment Network, you will never run out of things to watch.

Usually, USB slots have a lot of limitations. However, with the Sony BDPS1200, you have a very flexible USB socket that is compatible with most file systems. It can also play any video, as long as it is in Xvid or MPEG-4 file formats. You can also watch your photos or listen to the music stored on your USB media device directly on your TV. All you have to do is plug in the device to your Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player, and you’re all set!

Things We Don’t Like

Keep in mind that the Sony BDPS1200 is considered to be a basic model, so if you are looking for more advanced features such as 3D support, this is not the Blu-ray disc player you have in mind.


This blu-ray disc player comes with limited manufacturer’s warranty against defects.

Is It Worth The Money?

Considering that the Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player is one of the cheaper models today, and it has “more than basic” features for a “basic” model, then it is worth every single cent spent on it.

Where Can I Buy?

The Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player is now available from Sony, as well as many other online retailers. Amazon is a very good place to get it from, since they are also likely to offer discounts for it and also let you avail of this product with free shipping.

Final Thoughts

Even if you’re on a tight budget when shopping for a Blu-ray disc player, you can still get one with a lot of impressive features when you choose the Sony BDPS1200 Blu-ray Disc Player.
