Sony BDP-S550 Video
The Sony BDP-S300 is a decent choice if you're limiting yourself to a relatively cheap, standard-design Blu-ray player, but everyone else should consider the competition.
Panasonic's DMP-BD85K has great image quality and its 7.1 analog outputs are a nice plus, but it's slow and less featured than competing models.
The BDP-S350 has a small chassis, solid feature set, and relatively low price--but the PlayStation 3 is still a better value.
The LaCie 319 has excellent image quality, but its high price and advanced features make it an LCD that only real graphics pros should consider.
The Sony BDP-S5100 is a decent, compact player with an attractive jewel-like finish.
The Sony BDP-S570 has all the features of other midrange Blu-ray players, plus future 3D support and best-in-class operational speed, but you'll have to wait to unlock all of its functionality.
Attractive and compact, the Sony Handycam DCR-PC1000 MiniDV camera offers excellent image quality for its class and brings CMOS technology to the world of camcorders. But its overly clever user interface doesn't do its feature set justice.
If you don't anticipate a need for multiple lenses, the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-R1 is a handy, versatile camera with excellent image quality.
The Sony BDP-S360 handles all the Blu-ray basics with ease, but it lacks the streaming Internet content found on competing models.
The Canon PowerShot SD1000 is a great choice for a compact camera because of its small size, excellent image quality, and solid, though not extensive, feature set.
