Can some one tell me in what world is this player, or any disc player still relevant??
Who on earth that has an internet connection still "goes out to choose a movie" from the local rental store???
this format was irrelevant and overpriced immediately when it came out, and no one with a bit of brain would want to live in the 90s era when people collected movies and music on discs. Who wants that stuff to collect dust and space in their homes never to be watched again? WhatHiFi staff is simply reviewing an obsolete format that is the industry's longest worst kept "secret" - blu ray is a failure, and it's about time to move on.
160GBP for a "budget" machine that plays discs... give me a break...
tzjp, I don't imagine too many people DO go out to a local store to rent movies though some will.
I buy mine from the internet where as everybody knows most deals are to be had. I wouldn't be without my blu-ray player having saw how great a picture can be had though no doubt other people WILL stream their movies to view, not me though (I have two blu ray players in the house) AND i tend to watch a movie more than just the once as well
Hey you can watch movies on your computer screen as well but I'm sticking to watching them on a bigger screen, my TV thanks
In what way is blu-ray a failure though ?
I think it's way too early to call disc players irrelevent . Whether it's movies or music, there are many people who still buy, and enjoy using discs.
Blu-ray is the still best way to watch movies at home if you want the best picture and sound -and will be for the forsee-able future.
Streaming off the internet doesnt come close.
What's with all the wedge shapes? I liked it when they were plain old rectangles!

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
