10 Blu-ray players for around $150

Last year at this time there were a few cheap Blu-ray players out there for around $150. But they were generic brands – you know the kind that probably work decent but you don’t brag to your friends about. Well this year there are several brand name models, even some with streaming capabilities, that are hard to pass up given the recent price drops.

In this article we focus on 10 models that range around $150. All of the players listed are 1080p, featuring BD Live and upconverting DVD capabilities. We’ve listed BD players from Sony, Samsung, Philips, LG and even former rival Toshiba. (Did you forget they took the blue plunge this year?)

So if you’re still bitter about blowing $400 on an HD DVD player, or have been waiting patiently for Blu-ray prices to drop, this may be your cue. Below are 10 Blu-ray players listed in order by current price on Amazon.

  1. Please watch out for the Samsung BD-P3600 Blu-Ray Players though!

    They are very unstable and will sometimes suffer a complete system crash if you update the firmware.

    Here are some more details about this failed product:

    Why buy any of them when a PS3 will support every option coming out. People waited for BD 1.1 and then BD 2.0 and they will miss out on 3D. I have had every update that has come out and it plays games and it streams from my computer. It only does everything.

  3. I will go to walmart to buy the 78 Usd Player

    Why would I want to buy these players?

    BDA announced that Managed Copy and 3D are coming to blu-ray next year.

    None of these players supports either one.
