CNET Reviews – Top Rated Video Players and Recorders

  • Roku 1 - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The Roku 1 offers the same excellent experience that's found on other Roku boxes at a new low price, but there aren't many reasons to choose it over the new Streaming Stick or step-up Roku boxes.
  • LG BP530 - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The LG BP530 has built-in Wi-Fi and a good selection of apps, but there are just enough quirks to keep it from being a top Blu-ray player pick.
  • Samsung BD-F5900 - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed.
  • Microsoft Xbox One - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    Its high price and imperfect voice control and TV integration keep the Xbox One short of must-have territory, but the inclusion of Titanfall for free (for new purchases) helps Microsoft's console hold the line against Sony's compelling PS4.
  • Sony PlayStation 4 - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, blazing interface, near-perfect controller, and lower price give it a slight edge on the Xbox One -- for now.

    The Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player offers a wealth of services and very good image quality for the money.
  • Roku LT (2013) - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The Roku LT is the best budget streaming-media device, easily topping the $35 Chromecast.
  • Phorus PR1 Receiver - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    While the Play-Fi standard offers plenty of potential, the Phorus PR1 is currently too limited in its scope and performance to warrant buying over a Sonos.
  • Panasonic DMP-BDT230 - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
  • TiVo Roamio Pro - CNET Reviews - Top Rated Video Players and Recorders
    If you're willing to pay the premium price, TiVo's do-it-all Roamio is the best cable DVR yet and an able whole-home TV solution.
