We check out the best Blu-Ray player on the market

If you're wondering what the best Blu-Ray player is, then the range of choice available in stores is probably giving you the cold sweats! Blu-Ray has firmly usurped DVD as the format of choice for tecchies everywhere, and the technology continues to get cheaper and cheaper.

There are lots of confusing terms when it comes to Blu-Ray. You'll find players capable of playing 1080i, 1080p and even 3D Blu-Rays, so knowing which one to go for can be tough, however, we have no hesitation recommending the best value player on the market, the Sony Playstation 3.

While it's not a dedicated Blu-Ray player, the Sony Playstation 3 is a fully functional games console, DVD player and Blu-Ray player. It handles all types of Blu-Ray disc, and can display them in the highest possible resolution - 1080p. It can also handle new fangled 3D Blu-Rays thanks to a recent firmware update.

The Playstation 3 also compares extremely favourably in price with a lot of similarly featured players. You'll also find a lot of stores offering it in bundles with different games and accessories. It's literally the only box you need to place under your TV, as it does absolutely everything.

The PS3's Blu-Ray component is completely future proof also as it will regularly get firmware upgrades thanks to Sony's policy of updating their console every few months. So as well as 3D Blu-Ray, you'll also be getting 3D gaming, don't miss out!
