Recommed me a Blu-Ray Player

Hi everyone

Im new here so if iv put this in the wrong place i apologize

Im looking at getting a blu-ray player, i have a 42inch HD TV and looking for something around the 100 pound mark?

Is it possible to get anything half decent for that money?

Cheers Guys

I have the Sony BDPS-370, it has internet capabilities enabling you to watch the BBC IPlayer via your TV for example with more stuff to follow. It is a little more than a £100 though:

Not too far off, once you factor in the blu ray movie and hdmi cable. A very good player considering its cost but prices have probably been squeezed up a bit due to the crappy exchange rate. There's also last year's mid range model, the BDP-S560 (which has built in Wi-fi) from Dixons.

This is also a pretty good deal on the Samsung BD-C5300 from Blockbuster. Samsung models seem to have been a bit hit and miss in the past, but even though it's early days this model seems quite promising.

The Sony S370 is worth the extra. It's a terrific machine.

My Samsung (a different model to your reference) paused on the layer change with SD discs, though a firmware update did remedy that.

You have three options for MR Blu-ray: get a chipped big name player from Multiregion Magic for several hundred quid, a Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD for even more or a Foehn & Hirsch player from eBuyer for £58 (when they come back in stock that is).

I have the last and it is a nice machine for the money
