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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
