There’s no facility for 3D Blu-ray playback (for that consider this or Blu-ray recordings, but for anyone looking for an all-in-one solution, the BD-C8500 has little competition save its 250GB-endowed variant, the BD-C8200M, and Panasonic’s DMR-XW380 DVD recorder or DMR-BW780/880 Blu-ray recorder.

Panasonic DMR-BW880 Blu-ray recorder

Steve Jobs may have dismissed Blu-ray, but when it comes to watching and archiving HD movies, IP delivery and hard-disk storage have some way to go before they can match the convenience and efficiency of optical media.

Panasonic DMP-BDT100

With the DMP-BDT100, Panasonic has extended its 3D Blu-ray proposition down to the mass market. The brand’s first 3D player, the DMP-BDT300, was a highly-polished performer; this model not so much cuts corners as neatly bevels them.

Pioneer BDP-LX53

Pioneer’s pricey BDP-LX53 Blu-ray player offers none of the niceties that brands use to lure us to the next price point.

Oppo DV-983H

Oppo has kitted out its flagship DV-983H with enough firepower to blow its impressive stablemate (the DV-980H) clean out of the water. At over £300 it’s certainly not cheap, but when you look at the packed spec sheet, that inflated price starts to become more understandable. Understated Design Usually, expensive DVD players are thicker than  Full Article…

Toshiba XD-E500

The Toshiba XD-E500 is the world’s first DVD player to include Toshiba’s revolutionary XDE (eXtended Detail Enhancement) technology, which now works in ‘real-time’. Suddenly DVD is looking very interesting again, despite the hullabaloo surround Blu-ray.

NAD Viso Five

Traditionally, the serious home cinephile has been faced with one option – separates, and their associated boxery. After all, package systems are a lifestyle-driven compromise, surely? The NAD Viso Five, therefore, represents a sort of Third Way. This piece of modernist AV sculpture combines a DVD player and 5.1 AV receiver, both of which aspire  Full Article…
