The Bottom Line 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 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. The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
