Best Blu-ray player deals: all the cheapest prices

Not everyone understands the importance of a Blu-ray player, and maybe that's no bad thing. They never go out of stock and there are always some very healthy Blu-ray player deals as a result. A 4K Blu-ray will deliver the very best audio and video quality. That's why we keep our eyes peeled for the best Blu-ray player deals around, for those that know.

Below you'll find both 4K Blu-ray players and Full HD BD players too from all the big manufacturers including Sony, LG, Panasonic and Pioneer. Prices range from under $100 all the way up to $1,000.

What justifies the difference? As ever, it's all about quality. Brilliant budget players do exist, but the higher up you go, the more you'll get in the way of video and, particularly, audio brilliance. Make sure you're shopping for a Blu-ray player that matches the rest of your set-up. If you have a high-end AV receiver and speaker package, then a top disc player will help get the most out of your movies.

One of the big features you need to be on the look-out for is HDR support. Not all of these players support both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Even if your set-up doesn't involve both at the moment, it may be worth thinking ahead to your next upgrade.

Finally, watch-out for audio codecs – can it do Dolby Atmos and DTS:X – and does it have the right kind of outputs that you need?

This is the place to come for all to get the best deals. These are the cheapest Blu-ray player prices that we've found.
