The Bottom Line Quick load times, excellent Blu-ray image quality, and a generous suite of streaming services make the LG BD550 a solid entry-level Blu-ray player. The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money. The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed. The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick. 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.
