Here you'll find a list of our favorite Blu-ray players, with a heavy emphasize on value.

CNET has confirmed that for better or worse the Xbox One won't play 3D Blu-ray movies at launch.
The Project Ray operating system can turn a modest Android phone like the Huawei Vision into a device for the seeing-impaired. Get CNET's first impressions of the reenvisioned smartphone here.
With its slick metal body, the HTC One Mini 2 is among the most luxurious compact phones around. HTC, however, has given it a set of specs that put it more alongside the dirt-cheap Moto G than the One M8. This is definitely not the flagship One M8 in a more compact form. If style is of the utmost importance, it's worth checking out, but the Moto G is much better value.
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 Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed.
The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
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.
