The Bottom Line The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money. The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface. The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed.
