  • If your budget doesn't stretch to the BD-F7500 - or you simply don't need 4K upscaling, two HDMIs and analogue audio outputs - then the BD-F6500 is a fine alternative. Apart from the above features and a more basic design it's essentially the same player at a lower price. That means you get the same generous internet content, slick DLNA streaming, screen mirroring, 3D playback and wide format compatibility, not to mention the superb new operating system that makes navigation a breeze.


  • We often see Blu-ray players and question why the manufacturer has included or excluded certain features, bearing in mind the price and positioning in the market. Not so, here.
    Jettisoning analogue outputs seems reasonable enough on what is a straightforward all-digital deck. By favouring and refining the smart TV side of things, Samsung seems to have its finger on the pulse and has delivered an excellent all round Blu-ray deck for today's rapidly evolving home entertainment market.


  • At first glance the £40 price difference between the BD-F6500 and the BD-F5500 feels like a lot to pay for built-in Wi-Fi and 7.1 surround sound (which hardly anyone will use). But this is a player fully equipped for the new age of content streaming. While the Catch-up TV, Netflix and LoveFilm apps will be rolling out to all Samsung's 2013 range of Blu-Ray players, only the F6500 (and the over-expensive F7500) will offer the flexibility of accessing content via built-in Wi-Fi.


  • Features are scarce, but the Sony BDP-S1100 is an otherwise impressive sub-£100 player - it's stylish, easy to use and delivers slick HD pictures.


  • The price of the Sony BDP-S1100 has fallen since launch to a rock bottom £50, and at that price it probably offers more for your money than any other player on the market. The designer looks of the device are an added bonus, and it stands out as a top choice among entry-level models.


  • The Sony BDP-S1100 is an excellent Blu-ray player with a very compact design. We liked its responsive, user-friendly menus, which are similar in style to the PlayStation 3 interface. Anyone looking for 3D support, however, will need to look to a higher-end model.
