Sony Australia today announced the release of three new Blu-ray players: the BDP-S360, BDP-S560 and BDP-S760.

The BDP-S560 and BDP-S760 will both feature wireless connectivity for BD-Live (Profile 2.0). This will allow users to access Blu-ray media and other online content without an Ethernet cable. The BDP-S560 and BDP-S760 will also feature USB photo playback (via a front-mounted port), DLNA photo streaming and 7.1-channel audio decoding.

In addition to these features, the flagship Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray player will also offer 7.1 analog audio outputs, Precision Cinema HD upscaling, gold-plated terminals and an integrated headphone jack for virtual surround sound. This simulates the sound of a home theatre setup when using a pair of headphones.

The entry-level BDP-S360 boasts a 6-second start-up time for Blu-ray movie playback and improved DVD upscaling to 1080p.

Sony Australia's Paul Colley said that the new features offered by the BDP-S760 and BDP-S760 were designed to give consumers a greater entertainment experience in their living rooms. "The [Blu-ray] experience is enhanced with additional features such as Bonus View and BD Live via Wi-Fi,” Colley said.

The Sony BDP-S360, Sony BDP-S560 and Sony BDP-S760 are available now for recommended retail prices of $449, $549 and $729, respectively.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
