Yamaha slims down new Blu-ray player

BD-S473 slim-line player supports DLNA, YouTube, USB media

Yamaha's new BD-S473 Blu-ray player inherits its features from last year's BD-S671, but is slimmer, cheaper, and more powerful.

The BD-S473 can play 2D and 3D Blu-ray movies, and can stream video at up to 1080p over its wired Ethernet network connection. The same network connection enables YouTube playback directly from the Blu-ray player, along with the usual BD-Live interactive features of compatible discs.

The BD-S473 will work seamlessly with Yamaha's current range of HDMI-compatible A/V receivers, and can be controlled with the A/V receiver's remote control once connected. A third device, the Yamaha YWA-10, can be added to make both the receiver and BD-S473 connect to a home network over Wi-Fi.

If Wi-Fi is used, the BD-S473 can be controlled with Yamaha's iOS or Android app, A/V Controller.

The Yamaha BD-S473 is available now for a $229 RRP.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
