Best Blu-Ray Players

Blu-Ray discs provide the best video quality in full 1080p for your HDTV which makes them a must have for any serious home theater systems. Blu-Ray players not only play blu-ray discs, but they can also play DVDs and CDs, some can also support 3d videos, and many can stream content over Wi-Fi through the most popular streaming services like Netflix.

Some important features to look for when shopping for a player include image quality, 3D capabilities, Wi-Fi, streaming services, HDMI ports, and USB ports. One new technology that will become more prevalent in the future is 4K Ultra HD upscaling to take advantage of 4K compatible TVs.

We took all these features plus others, and factored in the price to come up with our ratings. Below we review our list of the best Blu-Ray players.
