The Bottom Line 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 Sony BDP-S590 is a great-looking Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and tons of streaming-media apps, but it's slow to load discs and has some user interface quirks.
