Pioneer BDP-LX71

The Pioneer LX71 is a great Blu-ray player, despite a slow loading speed for interactive discs and the high price.

Panasonic DMP-B15

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

LG Super Multi Blue BH100

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

Pioneer BDP-LX91

If you've got the desire and the bank balance to put together a really serious home-cinema kit, complete with a tip-top sound system and truly massive TV or projector, Pioneer's BDP-LX91 Blu-ray player is eminently qualified to become your system's heart and lungs

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.

Panasonic DMP-BD60

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

Sony BDP-S500

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

Panasonic DMP-BD10A

If you're set on a standalone Blu-ray player, the Panasonic DMP-BD10A should definitely be on your short list.

LG BD300

LG's BD300 produces decent images and sound and can be networked to take advantage of BD-Live features — just so long as you don't mind laying some Ethernet cable.

Panasonic DMR-E30

Much improved and a little less costly than its predecessor, the DMR-E30S may not be a total bargain, but it has a lot to recommend it.

JVC DR-MV1S

JVC's promising but confounding VCR/DVD combo recorder is saddled with too many quirks.

Pioneer DV-578A-S

Pioneer's entry-level Super Audio CD/DVD-Audio player sounds good enough for all but the most critical listeners.

Denon DVD-1920

Editors' Choice

Sony BDP-S350

Finally, a Blu-ray player from Sony for everyone to get excited about. This player is relatively quick to load discs, picture performance is superb, and its wonderful menu system and speed at dealing with interactive features make it well worth its bargain price. It's just a shame it took Sony so long to get this player on the market

Toshiba BDX2400

Toshiba announced four new devices called "Media Boxes," but are essentially Blu-ray players with streaming-media functionality.

Samsung BD-P1000

Unless you're a zealous early adopter who's already invested in a high-definition TV, we'd recommend waiting until the format war pans out a little more, or at least until more Blu-ray Disc content is made available.

Samsung DVD-HD850

The DVD-HD850 has been a hot consumer product since launch, offering high-end features at a low price. With the only competition coming from high-end manufacturers like Denon, the Samsung has the mainstream to itself. If you have a flat-screen TV, the true value of this product is more than the asking price
