If you like the quality and features of Blu-ray, and want to be able to watch discs on your Mac or convert them to other formats for viewing on other computers, all you need is a bit of hardware and software to make it all possible.
The Panasonic DMP-BD65P Blu-ray player has a low price, given its selection of Internet-streaming options--but it suffers from uninspiring image quality.
A few annoying design issues can’t take the shine out of the otherwise excellent, reasonably priced Samsung BD-C6500 Blu-ray player.
You can't expect a great Blu-ray player for $150, but the Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 delivers a more-than-fair product for the price.
The Toshiba BDX2700 is a reasonably good Blu-ray player that sells for a reasonably good price; its disappointing DVD upconversion is its only serious drawback.
Blu-ray discs look wonderful on the BD-HP90, but Sharp got virtually everything else wrong with this player--and then priced it too high.
Though it costs more than many competitors, the Samsung BD-C7900 offers excellent images, 3D, ease of use, and all the Internet and multimedia trimmings.
The DMP-BD85 offers only middle-of-the-road image quality and an ugly, confusing menu system, which together make this Blu-ray player a poor value.
For most people, the player's 250GB internal hard drive won't justify the LG BD590's relatively high cost.
