Sling TV Blue offers cord-cutters a wealth of live cable TV channels and plenty of add-on options for an affordable price.
The Sony UBP-X700 is at the cutting edge of 4K Blu-ray technology and rewards with a solid performance at a reasonable price.
The Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player offers a lot of features for little money but a lack of input responsiveness can spoil some of the fun.
The Sony UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray player has impressive build quality and video performance, but the cheaper Sony offers a better deal.
For SlingTV subscribers who want to make it easier to watch local over-the-air channels at home and on the go, AirTV is a one-time investment that works almost invisibly.
The Samsung UBD-K8500 4K Blu-ray player delivers the best in-home video quality ever, but only owners of the latest, most expensive TVs need apply.
This Panasonic delivers an outstanding combination of features and value among entry-level DVD players.
A good choice for current or future HDTV owners on a budget, this capable player also does MP3 and photos very well.
The Oppo DV-983H is pretty much the ultimate standard-def disc player, but its high price means videophiles on a budget can get a better bang for their buck.

If you're not a stickler for video quality, this unique player packs a lot of features for a reasonable price.
If you're set on a standalone Blu-ray player, the Panasonic DMP-BD10A should definitely be on your short list.

Although the idea of a portable Blu-ray player with an 8.9-inch screen sounds daft, the quality of the Panasonic DMP-B15's screen, together with the fact that it also works really well with a telly, has won us over
Picture quality is great on both HD DVD and Blu-ray and if this player cost £500 instead of £1,000 we'd recommend it. As it is, however, it's just too much to pay for something that doesn't support proper HD DVD menus
The Panasonic DMP-BD60 is a capable and likeable Blu-ray player. We love the simple styling, even if it is unexciting, and we think this is likely to be a really popular machine. DivX support and an SD card reader add to the features, but this player is first and foremost about getting Blu-ray movies onto your TV with minimum fuss and maximum quality. Overall, it's a great performer and, though on the costly side, it's worth the money
There is no compelling reason to buy this player over a PlayStation 3: it's too expensive, doesn't support profile 1.1 or 2.0, and costs more than pretty much every Blu-ray player on the market. The picture and sound quality are, however, excellent, which makes it a good player with a silly price tag
The Sony BDP-S390 is a very smart Blu-ray player that sells for a very good price, thanks primarily to eliminating such features as 3D support.
