    Samsung BD-D6900 review

    By 1 June 2011

    That Samsung’s latest high-def hero has touch-sensitive controls, a brushed metallic top, a gloriously slim 33mm profile and is able to silently slip out a disc from within won’t surprise anyone; this has been a brand at the coal face of product design...

    Toshiba BDX3200 review

    By 26 May 2011

    Normally we’d be all excited about 3D playback, but so far the capability to read 3D Blu-ray discs hardly seems to be a high-end add-on feature at all. Take this so-called “flagship” Blu-ray player from mainstream brand Toshiba; it costs only a...

    Panasonic DMP-BDT210 review

    By 19 May 2011

    After the online content hubs of last year, is the next big thing in Blu-ray players iPhone control? It seems a bit harsh on the squillions of Android phone owners, but Panasonic has fitted its latest high-end 3D Blu-ray deck with an iPhone app as well...

    Panasonic DMP-BDT110 review

    By 4 May 2011

    Created to partner screens in the brand’s three separate line-ups of 3D plasmas (VT30, GT30 and ST30) and sole range of 3D LED-backlit LCD TVs (DT30), this player is the most affordable of a trio of 3D decks in Panasonic’s 2011 range - the others...

    Samsung BD-D8500 review

    By 27 April 2011

    There’s something decidedly low-rent about the word “combi”, but this two-into-one effort from Samsung is most definitely upmarket. Costing a whopping £380, it darn well should be, but wait until you see what it can do: 3D Blu-ray playback, Freeview...

    Philips BDP7500S2 review

    By 1 March 2011

    Fancy a Blu-ray deck that does it all? Able to spin 3D Blu-ray discs, this classy deck proves technically just as good as models from the likes of Sony, but it does lack one or two features rivals include. Its provision of 1GB of local storage is a nice...

    Samsung BD-D7000 3D Blu-ray player hands-on

    By 14 January 2011

    There are some who are starting to doubt whether Blu-ray will ever become the dominant standard for movie media, or whether it will be bypassed by cloud-based or digitally-stored video content instead. And as for 3D Blu-ray, it's struggling to get any...

    Sony BDP-S470 review

    By 9 December 2010

    Is it time we abandoned the 2D Blu-ray player? At this low price Sony’s BDP-S470 makes a serious bid at being not just an excellent 3D Blu-ray player, but a fantastic value all-rounder that could quickly see the rug pulled from under non-3D players....

    Panasonic DMP-BDT100 review

    By 17 September 2010

    Panasonic’s budget 3D Blu-ray player is designed to be paired with one of the brand’s two 3D TVs - either its 50-inch TX-50VT20 or 65-inch TX-65VT20 plasmas - though makes for a great future-proof buy of you plan to fork out for a 3D screen in the...
