One of the most useful features introduced in DVD players and Blu-ray players is the USB hub. Earlier, one had to go through a long procedure to get a favorite movie from the computer to play on TV as opposed to the simplicity of plug-and-play with a pendrive.

While all Blu-ray players include USB ports, and some of the latest DVD players now have this feature too. Additionally, portable DVD players with USB ports are a are most convenient while travelling long distances, since a simple pendrive replaces lugging around a whole bunch of DVDs.

Along with the USB hub, Blu-ray players and upconversion DVD players have other good connectivity options like HDMI outputs to connect to your HDTV. You could also look for other connections like component video and audio outputs if your TV or AVR don't support HDMI.

Since you intend to play music and videos directly via the USB slot, the best DVD players with USB also provide extensive file support. We've heard several people complain that their TVs or DVD/Blu-ray players don't support their files, making them go through the entire hassle of converting those files using a computer. A good player should be able to play some or all of these files : MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI, MP3, WMA, WMV, FLAC, DivX, AVCHD and JPEG. Nevertheless it is best if you matched these formats with what you usually play and pick your best fit.

  • The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.


  • Viewers after the latest and greatest collection of apps should look beyond the DMP-BDT230 and head for a Samsung deck. However, if you're after the very finest picture quality not only from 2D and 3D Blu-ray, but from upscaled DVDs, too, the low-priced DMP-BDT230 is dead centre of the sweet-spot.


  • The DMP-BDT230 powers up and loads discs very quickly, and I didn't encounter any freezes or stutters during disc playback. The player passed all of the 480i/1080i processing tests on the HQV Benchmark DVD and HD HQV Benchmark Blu-ray disc (Silicon Optix). For the most part, it cleanly rendered my real-world DVD scenes from Gladiator (DreamWorks) and The Bourne Identity (Universal), producing only an instant of moir in both scenes before it locked onto the 3:2 cadence.


  • The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.


  • The Sony BDP-S5100 is a slick, versatile 3D Blu-ray player with killer web content and sumptuous HD pictures.


  • It costs a bit more than the other Sony Blu-Ray players, but not enough to break the bank. If you're buying this is conjunction with a new TV you won't even notice the price difference. Since the BDP-S5100 includes 3D playback and built-in Wi-Fi, we'd recommend that you choose this one instead of one of the cheaper models. It's always a good policy to future-proof yourself as much as possible when buying tech.


  • What's left to say about the Oppo's new BDP-103 universal Blu-ray player, except that it is currently the universal disc spinner to have and the one to beat and the fact that it doesn't cost you an arm, leg and kidney is just icing on the cake. There isn't anything this mighty player can't really do outside of a few missing formats, mainly ISO, and true UltraHD compatibility. Beyond that, the BDP-103 is all the player you need and then some. It's even an AV preamp, if you wish to get technical.


  • For a hefty price, the Oppo BDP-103 offers top-notch performance along with every feature you could want in a Blu-ray player and then some.


  • I have had the opportunity to review OPPO products going back to their first upscaling DVD player (OPDV971H) and with every Upscaling DVD and Blu-ray Disc player I have seen from them, up to this point, they have consistently provided solid build quality and the latest audio and video innovations, while retaining excellent core audio and video performance.


  • 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.


  • Weighing up its features, performance and price, we can only conclude that the BDP-S3100 represents superb value for money. It boasts a generous array of features, including built-in Wi-Fi, web content and DLNA streaming, all for a little over £100 - plus it's attractively styled, surprisingly well built and delivers dazzling 2D pictures.


  • The BDP-S3100 is a nice-looking Blu-Ray player, but beyond its distinctive design, there's no compelling reason to choose this over rivals from other manufacturers. The Triluminos compatibility could be relevant if you plan to buy a Sony TV in the future that supports Triluminos, but at present these are far too expensive for the average consumer to consider.

    It's a step up from the entry-level BDP-S1100, adding Wi-Fi, DLNA and support for Sony's TV Side View smartphone app.
