Blu-ray player price comparison: Sony vs. Panasonic

The best Blu-ray players from Sony and Panasonic reviewed and rated

For the past few years, Sony and Panasonic have been at the forefront of Blu-ray technology. The format was developed and pioneered by Sony, which makes the company a top authority on the subject; especially when it comes to image quality. Panasonic, meanwhile, has introduced many firsts into the Australian market, including the first wireless Internet model and the first Blu-ray recorder.

If you're after plenty of inbuilt features and unmatched 1080p video quality; Sony and Panasonic are arguably the way to go.

In the following article, we present our in-depth reviews of every Sony and Panasonic Blu-ray player currently on the market. To read the full review, click on the image of each Blu-ray player.

Sony BDP-S5000ES

The Sony BDP-S5000ES is a quiet and fully featured Blu-ray player that has excellent picture quality and the ports needed for an A/V rack setup. Unfortunately this isn't enough to justify the very high price tag.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
