As DVD players have now reached their peak of performance and features, the differences between the models of offer is getting smaller and smaller. The top of the range Sony DVP-NS728H is no exception with just one additional feature over the DVP-NS718H.
The Sony DVP-NS728H has the good looks and very slim size to make it an attractive addition to any home entertainment system. The smooth front fascia and quality design certainly makes it clear that this is a Sony DVD player even before you see the badge.
Visibly, the only difference between the DVP-NS728H and the 718 is on the far right side of the front of the player, and that also represents the biggest feature difference too – a USB socket. This really makes the 728 a flexible DVD player as it enables you to play content from a USB stick as well. This includes the obvious formats like Audio CD, VCD, Super VCD, DVD-R/RW (Video Format), DVD-RW (VR Format), DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R/RW, but also HD JPEG, JPEG, mp3, AAC, WMA and DivX all catered for.
In addition to the USB socket, the connection options are plentiful with HDMI, Scart, and Component available so you can connect to your television, as well as digital coaxial for sound.
Like the NS718, this model also comes with the Quick Set-up function to get you started quickly and the Bravia Sync which is very useful if you have a Sony Bravia television.
What to consider…
The inclusion of the USB socket is a worthwhile but costly addition. If you can do without, the DVP-NS718H is a cheaper option.
Why you should buy the Sony DVP-NS728H DVD Player
The addition of a USB socket makes this DVD player a really flexible device, and despite the Sony price premium, this player is still a great choice. Rating: /5
