The Sony BDP-S3200 will play your Blu-rays just fine but it doesn't do enough to embrace streaming media like its competitors.
Samsung revealed its new flagship Blu-ray player at CES 2013, capable of upconverting content to 4K and a nifty reverse-AirPlay streaming-video feature.
The Panasonic DMP-B100 is the cheapest way to watch your Blu-ray movies on the go, but other portable media options, like an iPad or Blu-ray-equipped laptop, are more attractive.
The LG BD590 deftly handles Blu-ray playback, CD ripping, and streaming media services like Netflix from a single box, but you'll have to pay for that simplicity.
Samsung's BD-P4600 Blu-ray player is packed with features and its unique design makes it wall-mountable, but most buyers will be better off with the step-down BD-P3600.
The Panasonic DVD-LS83 is a solid-performing portable DVD player, though you may be able to find a similar player for a cheaper price.
The Panasonic DMP-B15 is the world's first portable Blu-ray player that can function as a standalone player, too, but ultimately it has too many caveats and costs too much.
The Insignia NS-2BRDVD is an underfeatured and slow-loading Blu-ray player, but it provides basic Blu-ray playback at a bargain.
Pricing not available
The BDP-S300 is a decent choice if you're limiting yourself to a relatively cheap, standard-design Blu-ray player, but everyone else should consider the competition.
Panasonic has listened. The third incarnation of the AG-DVX100 offers unrivalled bang for the buck in a prosumer standard-definition MiniDV camera.
