What you will see below is our collection of the most recommended players (both DVD and Blu-ray) that were released in the last 6 months. Due to their superior video and audio quality, most manufacturers are now focusing on making Blu-Ray players and the DVD market is on the slide, if not completely out. So our list of the latest DVD players has some of the latest Blu-ray players as well as a small minority of DVD players.
Blu-ray players play Blu-ray discs as well as DVDs and CDs and are by implication also referred to as the latest DVD players. Blu-Ray players are full HD players capable of supporting and displaying true 1080p content like that in a Blu-ray disc. They also have superior audio decoding which means you get dynamic surround sound while you watch high definition videos.
The latest DVD players are typically from Sylviana, featuring style and portability. You have models, with 7-inch screens, that can be propped up in your car; and the more conventional kind you can travel with.
Blu-ray players come with excellent connectivity options from HDMI, to component video and audio outputs and USB hubs. The latest DVD/Blu-ray players are savvy with formats like MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI, MP3, WMA, WMV, FLAC, DivX, AVCHD, JPEG etc.
Most of the latest Blu-ray players in the market also have other luxury features like Wi-Fi and internet apps. The player hooks up to your home network and allows you to stream videos and audio content from specific websites like Netflix and Vudu.
