Sony 120 GB Playstation 3 Slim Review
Since its inception, Sony’s Playstation 3 quickly ascended the ranks as a market leader – just not in the demographic that the electronics giant would’ve probably preferred.  Though it’s become well respected in the gaming sector, its prowess lies in the computing machine’s ability to handle Blu-ray technology on the cinematic side of things.  At around $100 less than most of the competition, it decodes advanced audio tracks as an earmark on Sony’s barrage of firmware enhancements while providing an admirable picture and full interactivity with the technology’s BD-Live and BD-Java 2.0 capacities.  More advanced machines have now slipped into the market that takes the unit’s capability down a few pegs, but it’s unequivocally still the best value – you know, because it ‘s also a fine gaming machine and media hub.Much like the transition between slimline and launch Playstation ...

Harman Kardon BDP 1 Blu-ray Player Review
With their signature two-tone, slick yet simple aesthetic and a penchant for quality in the audio / video spectrum, especially with a range of excellent receivers, Harman Kardon have always had a way with throwing together capable machines that also project a certain electronic sex appeal.  It’s only natural that their flagship Blu-ray player, the BDP 1, carries along the same blend of sharp looks and capableness in the quality department.   Though lighter on features when compared to other models within its price range (namely the OPPO BDP-83) and fairly skimpy on personal adjustment, Harman Kardon have justly taken their stronger qualities into consideration and built a proficient 1080p/24, Profile 2.0 Blu-ray / upscaling DVD player with an eye for streamline design.Out of the Box:Coming equipped in a sturdy standard cardboard box, Harman Kardon’s unit impresses out of the gate ...

Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray Player Review
Reputation often precedes any compliments that can be dished about OPPO as a company, largely in the realm of world cinema.  Their 970 and 980 lines of DVD players handle just about anything thrown at them, all while upscaling standard-definition discs to impeccable quality.  When word inked into the picture that OPPO would be releasing a “Universal” Blu-ray player, their BDP-83, many a mouth salivated.   However, a few breaks have to be slammed on this parade: region coding issues have locked its Blu-ray capacity to Region A, and its standard-definition player capacity has been relegated to Region 1/0 discs.  OPPO’s BDP-83 has taken strong strides in surmounting these obstacles, decisions mostly dictated by restrictions out of their control.  Instead of trying to finagle malleable technology into their player like the Momitsu multi-region player on the market now, they seeped directly ...
