BDP-S350

No sooner did the Sony BDP-S350 start shipping, then someone took it apart to see what makes it tick. No surprises in there either, as it seems to use the latest Sigma SMP8634 RevC chip, which is a popular choice for Blu-ray players. Interestingly this was the chip of choice in the older Samsung BD-P1400, but in the more recent BD-P1500, for whatever reason Samsung went a different way with the Broadcom BCM7440P. While it was fun to get our hands on Sony's latest player, we really can't wait to run it through the paces and see how it stands up to it's old brother.
