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.
Smaller and lighter, quieter and more energy-efficient
Only two USB ports instead of four
