Microsoft Xbox One (without Kinect)
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One ( without Kinect)

The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.

Sony PlayStation 4
REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, blazing interface, near-perfect controller, and lower price give it a slight edge on the Xbox One -- for now.

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.

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.

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.

Panasonic DMR-BWT700
REVIEW

Panasonic DMR-BWT700

The Panasonic DMR-BWT700 is the most sophisticated Blu-ray recorder we've seen so far, combining fine 2D and 3D Blu-ray performance with versatile recording options. It's not particularly intuitive, though.

Panasonic DMP-BDT310
REVIEW

Panasonic DMP-BDT310

The Panasonic DMP-BDT310 is a great Blu-ray player with enough features to keep even the most enthusiastic users entertained for a long time. It's not the cheapest machine on the market, though.

Philips BDP8000
REVIEW

Philips BDP8000

The Philips BDP8000 is a great 3D Blu-ray player that offers excellent picture quality. The only downsides are its high price and relative lack of online video services.

Samsung BD-C6900
REVIEW

Samsung BD-C6900

As Blu-ray players go, the Samsung BD-C6900 is pretty amazing. It's got all the usual features, like BD-Live and lovely lossless audio, but it also packs in Internet TV streaming and 3D capability. It costs significantly more than a normal Blu-ray player, but it's well worth the extra, and, if you're a 3D fan, it's a must-own device

Samsung's BD-C6500 Blu-ray player has excellent image quality, outstanding features for the price, and a slick design--we just wish it were a little faster.
