Best Blu-ray playersUpdated February 14, 2014 12:02 PM PST
Blu-ray players might seem like yesterday's tech for gadget hounds, but they're still a bedrock of any modern home theater. Not only will a modern Blu-ray player handle all your disc-based media (Blu-ray, DVDs, CDs), they're also very capable streaming-media players, with support for apps like Netflix and Pandora. Here you'll find a list of our favorite 2013 Blu-ray players, with a heavy emphasize on value. Don't get bogged down worrying too much about image quality, as all players are pretty much the same. Instead, pick a player that has that's easy-to-use and has features and streaming services you want. And if you're even a casual gamer, the PS3 Slim remains the best overall home theater value on the market.
