Vibrant colours, oodles of detail and a great sound? It may only play HD discs but this cheap Panasonic Blu-ray player is a bargain.

The compact and easy-to-use BDT180EB comes with a smart menu, including the staple video streaming services of Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Video and BBC iPlayer built-in. 

Network connectivity is via ethernet cable, and there’s also the option to stream audio through its DLNA multi-room support.

As an older model, the BDT180EB doesn't play 4K UHD discs but will upscale HD Blu-ray and DVDs to 4K and should cater for those with an existing library of their favourite films on HD discs. With a picture that's detailed and insightful and dynamic sonic performance, this cheap and cheerful blu-ray player is a bargain.
