The S360 is just as bad for DVDs as the S350 I purchased (and returned) last year. With both of these players, DVDs look softer and murkier on my 768p LCD than they do using my old Sony P/S player, and this is noticeable at all video settings (480i/p, 720p, 1080i), and through HDMI or component. The best image I was able to get was through component at 480p, but it still looked worse than the output of my old DVD player. Not surprisingly, as the resolution setting is increased, the image gets softer and softer, with 1080i looking the worst. Even though I recalibrated the monitor for each resolution and for each cable type, I was never able to attain the image quality that I get through my 5 year old P/S player. The only conclusion I can draw is that the NEC chip used in the BDP-S350/360/550/360 is simply inferior to the Mediatek chip used in older Sony players. I would therefore not recommend a BDP-Sxxx to anyone looking to have their Blu-Ray player double as their primary DVD player.
