The Bottom Line The LG BD590 deftly handles Blu-ray playback, CD ripping, and streaming media services like Netflix from a single box, but you'll have to pay for that simplicity. The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed. The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money. The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is the best Blu-ray value of 2012, with built-in Wi-Fi, tons of streaming-media apps, 3D compatibility, and a simple user interface. Despite disc-loading speeds that are just average, the LG BD670's built-in Wi-Fi and excellent streaming-media suite make it one of the best Blu-ray player values.
