3. Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player (RRP: $349)

Samsung’s BD-P1600 does everything you could want a Blu-ray player to do. Great picture quality, plenty of audio decoding support and a speedy interface combine to make it an easy choice. Our only concerns (the build quality and the design) are minor.

When it comes to video quality, the Samsung BD-P1600 does not disappoint, with vibrant Blu-ray images that are full of detail. Thankfully, DVD upscaling is of an equally high calibre.

The Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player can connect to the Internet via Ethernet or Wi-Fi (the latter requires a proprietary USB dongle). It also supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding.

Pros: Excellent image quality with both Blu-ray discs and DVDs, high-definition audio decoding, good operational speed

Cons: Build quality could be better, flip-down front is annoying
