Here you'll find a list of our favorite Blu-ray players, with a heavy emphasize on value.
The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed.
The Philips HTB3525B packs Blu-ray, Smart TV, and Bluetooth into an affordable sound bar, making it a great choice if you're looking for an all-in-one system.
The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick.
The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.
The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
The Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 speakers look great and sound terrific, but they aren't the best choice for rockers.
Toshiba announced four new devices called "Media Boxes," but are essentially Blu-ray players with streaming-media functionality.
The "mastered in 4K" name is sure to confuse many buyers this year, but Sony's special new Blu-rays are an impressive boost in quality over your average Blu-ray release.
With comparably good sound for its size and the addition of speakerphone features, the Sony SRS-X3 mini Bluetooth speaker measures up well against the pricier Bose SoundLink Mini.
While it doesn't play as loud when it's on battery power, the Sony SRS-X5 holds its own against the top Bluetooth speakers in its size and price class.
