Top 10 budget Blu-ray players

Ten cheap Blu-ray players battle it out for the top spot

4. Sony PlayStation 3 Slim (120GB) (RRP: $499)

The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim is an unusual choice if you're simply looking for a Blu-ray player. But if you also have need of a game console, it's the best deal on the market by far. The PS3 Slim is a versatile games machine that improves on its portly predecessor in a number of ways. It also comes with inbuilt Wi-Fi and a 120GB hard drive; perfect for storing photos, music and videos.

The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim would have scored higher on our list if it wasn't for one caveat: it lacks a remote control. You will need to buy this separately for $39.95 -- otherwise, you're stuck with the PS3 control pad which is obviously less than ideal. That said, it remains the best choice for gaming videophiles. Pros: Smaller and lighter, quieter and more energy-efficient Cons: Only two USB ports instead of four

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
