Works just as well as a SONY DVD player that I bought for my son that costs over twice as much. Great picture, easy to set up and easy to use. Can't go wrong with this player.

Pros: Small size. Easy to use. Easy to setup. Great access to a number of services.

Cons: None that I see.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fine machine. Only 2 dislikes: I must use an old blu-ray remote to open and close drawer and responses to commands from remote are slow and if use to machines with faster response have a tendency to hit remote buttons numerous times.

Excellent Blu-ray player



You get what you pay for

Aslan14 from San Antonio, TX on 2/16/2014

Don't be fooled by the picture, this thing is as basic as you can get. There is no display. It is NOT wireless. It makes a weird noise when navigating around the discs. The playback quality to not really what I had expected from a Sony. If you are looking for something a 5 year old can use, then this is it. For others who like to be able to stream movies wirelessly and watch high quality Blu-Rays, find something a little more expensive.

Pros: Easy set up Compact Parental Controls External USB storage options

Cons: Not wireless Makes weird noises No display Tiny remote (easy to lose) Slow when loading

excellent product

Pros: greatr apps to connect to hd tv to enjoy movies on big screen


Great Product, Good price..

Shea K. from Norman, OK on 2/7/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product, especially if you have a smart TV. If not, I would pay the extra money and get the model that has built in WI-FI. Sony's proprietary wireless adapters are very expensive.

Pros: Quality is top notch. I expected the best from the company that invented the Blu-Ray discs it plays, and got what I expected.

Cons: None at this point, but I have used it quite a bit since purchasing the unit, and its worked without any issues at all..

I bought the Sony BDP-S110, because I needed to step up to Blue Ray. Set up up was easy. It plays both blue ray and my dvd's with no problem. Including some home recorded dvd's and they look better than ever. Plus it has Netflix, Huluplus, Youtube, Pandora, Crackle, and Vudu. The compact design and the USB port is also very convenient. You can never go wrong with a Sony product.

Pros: Its A Sony!!!

Cons: None that I can find so far.

Great deal.

TeresaC from Harrisonburg, VA on 11/6/2013

This is a great DVD / Blu-Ray Player for the money. It is an easy set-up and easy to operate right out of the box. And, Crutchfield is the place to buy from as they have knowledgeable staff and that personable touch, not that big store feeling that I hate!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I knew this would be a good buy because of the brand, Sony..they make solid products. I connected the DVD player and had it up and running within 15 minutes. I put on a non-blue ray DVD and to my surprise it looked clears as a bell. I then tried it with a blue ray DVD and I'm quite satisfied. The info on selecting a blue ray player on your website is very helpful. Great website, and I enjoy browsing thru your site because the articles are very helpful..satisfied customer.....

Pros: Ease of operation, and compact unit..

Cons: None...the user manuel is very user friendly..

Disc & USB Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Sony BDP-S1100 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW

Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 54 mbps. Blu-ray Disc discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

  • Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, and uncompressed 7.1 channel PCM.
  • Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.
Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The BDP-S1100 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware Updates: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet. Occasionally, Sony may release updated firmware for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection.

Note: The tested Sony BDP-S1100 Blu-ray player contained firmware version M14.R.0040 with an immediate update for firmware version M14.R.0093 (as of 3/14/2013). Visit the Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.

USB Port: The front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to play photo, videos, & music files on a connected USB device. The player can recognize Mass Storage Class (MSC) Devices that are FAT-compatible and Still Image Capture Devices (SICD) class devices. The player can recognize up to 500 folders/files.The USB port also allows you to enjoy additional content (such as BonusView) on certain Blue-ray Disc titles. Some BD-ROMs have bonus content & other data which can be downloaded to an inserted USB Flash Drive (minimum 1 GB recommended, sold separately).

Note: Not all USB devices are supported.

Compatible Audio/Video/Photo Formats: The Sony Blu-ray disc player supports playback of the following audio/video/photo files recorded on BD-R/RE, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs; plus compatible USB memory devices.

Media Format File Type
Video AVCHD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, WMV9, XVID

Video Section

Enclosed Optical Drive: The fully-enclosed optical drive keeps dust and particles away for optimal video playback.

HDMI (ver.1.3): The BDP-S1100's HDMI output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.

Note: This player does not offer any analog audio/video outputs.

Precision Cinema HD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S1100 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, or 720p. If necessary the output resolution can also be set to 480p or 480i. You can also choose to bypass the Blu-ray player's scaler, so the source material's original resolution is passed to your connected TV.

24p True Cinema: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BDP-S1100 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Triluminos Color: The BDP-S1100 Blu-ray player incorporates Sony's Triluminos Color technology to provide a wider color gamut with rich, authentic color and a far more natural viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.

Deep Color: The Sony Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color. The Deep Color function can be set to 10-bit, 12-bit, Auto, or Off.

x.v.Color: The BDP-S1100 supports x.v.Color, meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs when they become available in the future.

Screen Settings: The Sony BDP-S1100 features the following screen settings:

  • TV Type: You can select a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected Television's screen aspect ratio.
  • Screen Format: You can select the display configuration for a 4:3 screen picture on a 16:9 wide screen television. You can choose Full or Normal (select when connected to a TV with a wide mode function; displays a 4:3 screen picture in 16:9 aspect ratio even on a wide-screen TV) or Normal (changes the picture size to fit the screen size with the original picture aspect ratio).
  • DVD Aspect Ratio: You can select the display configuration for playback of 16:9 screen pictures on a 4:3 screen TV. You can select from Letter Box or Pan & Scan.

Video Settings: The BDP-S1100 offers the following video adjustments:

  • Picture Quality Mode: You can select from 3 preset pictures settings (Standard, Brighter, Theater) for different lighting environment.
  • BNR: Reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture.
  • MNR: Reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise)

Cinema Conversion Mode: The Sony Blu-ray player offers two Cinema Conversion Modes - (1) Auto mode automatically detects whether the material is video-based or film-based, and switches to the appropriate conversion method. (2) The Video mode is suited for video-based material and will always be selected regardless of the content.

BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

Audio Section

Surround Sound Decoders: The BDP-S1100 has built-in Dolby Digital and DTS surround processors; multi-channel PCM Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio are output through the HDMI jack (when encoded on the Blu-ray Disc).

  • Dolby Digital Plus: Dolby Digital Plus was developed as an extension to Dolby Digital. The audio coding technology supports 7.1 channel surround sound. Dolby Digital Plus also includes the standard Dolby Digital bit stream and is compatible with all current Dolby Digital processors using the coaxial digital output.
  • Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
  • DTS-HD High Resolution Audio: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-channel surround. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with a lossy compression.
  • DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps and uses lossless compression (Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.
Note: Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, & DTS-HD are only output via the player's HDMI output.

DTS Neo:6: This surround sound setting outputs simulated multichannel sound from 2 channel sources via the player's HDMI output.

Audio Settings: The BDP-S1100 allows you to adjust the following audio settings.

  • AV SYNC: synchronize the picture and sound by delaying the audio output in relation to the picture output; 0 to 120 milliseconds
  • Audio DRC: The player offers three dynamic range compression levels - Auto, On, Off.

Digital Audio Outputs: The BDP-S1100 is equipped with a coaxial (RCA) digital output. The Audio menu allows you to select the digital audio format that is passed through the coaxial digital output. Settings allow you to transfer Dolby Digital and/or DTS sound tracks, or down-mix surround bitstreams to 2-channel PCM audio.

Network/Internet Functions
