8. [[artnid:331185|Sony BDPS560 Blu-ray player]] (RRP: $289)
The Blu-ray players we've reviewed uniformly deliver on their promises of resplendent image quality on Blu-ray discs, but many fall behind in the task of upscaling regular DVDs. Not so with the Sony BDP-S560.
In our tests this model impressively handled regular DVDs (as well as both colour and black-and-white Blu-ray). Sony intelligently included two USB ports (one in the front and one in the back), Wi-Fi connectivity and a power-saving option as well.
If Sony had also endowed the BDP-S560 with the multimedia options available elsewhere, this player would have been unstoppable. On the plus side, it's one of the cheapest units on the market.
Built-in Wi-Fi, power-saving features, great image quality.
Multimedia features for photos only, poor remote.
