Apple TV ( 2012)

While it's still a step behind the Roku 3, the Apple TV is an excellent streaming box, especially for those invested in the Apple ecosystem.

Sony NSZ-GS7
REVIEW

Sony NSZ-GS7

The Sony NSZ-GS7 has sleek hardware and an innovative remote, but it's hampered by the still too-limited and frustrating Google TV software.

Sony BDP-SX1
REVIEW

Sony BDP-SX1

If you want to take your Blu-rays on the road, Sony's BDP-SX1 portable player is a reasonable, if expensive, option. Its good USB media support is a bonus, but Blu-rays don't look significantly better than DVDs on a 10-inch screen.

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD
REVIEW

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD

The Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is a 3D-ready Blu-ray player aimed at audiophiles. It sounds heavenly with pretty much any disc you feed it, but also delivers fabulous hi-def video and can stream almost every type of media via a LAN or USB. It's undeniably fine, but expensive.

Samsung BD-D7500
REVIEW

Samsung BD-D7500

Bafflingly small, the BD-D7500 pushes high-street Blu-ray design into the highfalutin realm once monopolised by a certain overpriced Danish brand. One to audition if you want a net-connected BD player that's as pretty as a picture.

Samsung BD-D8500M
REVIEW

Samsung BD-D8500M

The Samsung BD-D8500M Blu-ray player appears to offer it all -- a 500GB PVR, 3D support and Internet connectivity. But its multitasking issues and unconvincing media-streaming capability rather take the shine off this ambitious package.

Sony BDP-S480
REVIEW

Sony BDP-S480

The Sony BDP-S480 is a steal at its current price. As well as premium 3D Blu-ray playback capability, it offers tonnes of other great features, including access to the Bravia Internet Video Web portal.
