When it comes to Blu-ray players, the superb Sony Bdps760 demonstrates why Sony are still at the top.

Like most modern Blu-ray players the BDP-S760 allows you to access your home network system and particular internet sites through the BD-Live technology. Previously, you had to connect the Blu-ray player to an Ethernet cable; however in this BDP-S760 it has a built-in wireless connection so this is no longer needed.

As you'd expect from the inventors of Blu-ray, the Sony BDPS760 Blu-ray not only gives a Full HD 1080p picture but also has features such as the HD Reality Enhancer, Super Bit Mapping, x.v.Colour and DVD Upscaling which all work hand in hand to produce a great quality image to a first rate level. High Definition doesn't stop there; the sound quality is just as impressive. The Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD decoder gives a lifelike surround sound experience and with the Quick Start mode, you can have the Bdps760 Blu-ray up and running in just 6 seconds, ready to watch your favourite movie in high definition.

Like other Sony Blu-ray players the BD-PS760 is also extremely easy to use. The Xross Media Bar user interface makes the complex technology easy to access.

If you are looking for a super Blu-ray player with all the connections you will need, then look no further. The Sony BDPS760 deserves to be on your shortlist.

Competative price for a multi award winning blu-ray player.

i would just buy a ps3 at that price... but im guessing this is some super blue ray player?

surely a ps3 does this and more! Can anyone give indications why this is better than a ps3?

It comes with a dedicated remote control.

The PS3 is great value, as a media/games hub, but its not the last work in B-R playback, which is what some folks solely want. No one ever claimed the PS2 was a brilliant DVD player, or the PSOne was a great-sounding CD player.

The Playstations actually were good CD, DVD and Blu-Ray players!

The quality of the components will be far higher in this player, it will produce a better picutre and sound - it supports Bitstream output which the PS3 doesnt. 6 second start. If you have a proper "home cinema" set up then this is a much better quality piece of kit. Having said that the PS3 has a lot more features etc - ideally I would have both.

A mate just purchased one for £280 from Amazon.

These are remote hackable for DVD using one-for-all-6 remotes.

No BR hack.

Cold.

Depends on your definition of good. If you just want something that plays them, fine. But if you care about audio/video quality then there is/was much, much better out there. That said, PS3 is a much more competitive Blu-ray player compared what else is out there (it's better than most entry level players) than PS1 & PS2 ever were for CD's & DVD (they were both pretty dire compared to proper CD/DVD players).

According to Sonic, who produce the authoring software that most Blu-rays are authored with, the PS3 is the best player for two reasons. One it will always get firmware upgrades, the user base is what is selling the discs. Two it's way more powerful than a simple Blu-ray player. The graphics power actually helps playback. Of course there is the media serving ability and the games! Just bought one with free Heavy Rain for £269 so if you don't want the game that's an easy £25 trade in etc!

Is dire not a little bit harsh? BTW I have a pretty decent home cinema system based on an AVR-3808 and I use the PS3 for my Blu-ray so I am certainly not knocking it, just commenting on the posts that side by side there is a difference and the extra money for the Sony player does go somewhere.

Totally agree on the firmware update thing - second reason why I stuck with the PS3.
