Blu-ray players


£ 450

This clever box of tricks offers almost the complete home recording and smart TV package

£ 230

The quality runs through this 3D Blu-ray player like liquid gold – great picture, sound and features

£ 100

Not quite the best in class, but still an impressive player nonetheless

£ 1000

Despite its premium price tag, and fine picture and sound, the Arcam BDP100 has too many flaws

£ 295

It's amazingly slim and stylish, but while this Sharp's nearly at the top of the pile, it hasn't quite made it

£ 185

After having missed out initially with Blu-ray, Toshiba is catching up fast and the solidly performing and inexpensive BDX3100 is a worthy player

£ 225

The Panasonic DMP-BDT100 is keenly priced, has fine sound and it's 3D capable, too

£ 230

If you positively have to have a matching Blu-ray player for your Philips 3D TV, then this is the one to go for, otherwise there are better options

£ 280

There's really not much between this and its sibling '570 player, but if we had the extra £50, we'd probably choose this for its usability and perks

£ 300

The Dune BD Prime 3.0 may look like a conventional Blu-ray player, but it's far more complex than that
