Almost all HD DVD players in the market currently are Blu-Ray players and Panasonic currently seizes the top place for the best HD blu-ray players closely followed by Sony, LG and others. To enjoy high definition even from your earlier standard definition DVDs and CDs, these players are also capable of playing these earlier formats and up-scaling it to Full HD, though it still doesn't match up to the picture quality you'd get from a true HD source.

Our list of the best HD DVD players or Blu-Ray players include HDMI ports and USB ports to provide more easy connectivity with your HDTVs or sound systems.
