By Callum Tennent

There are plenty of cheap Blu-ray DVD players, but how can you tell which are worthwhile? We explain exactly what to look out for when buying a bargain Blu-ray player.

A Blu-ray player can cost anything from £50 to £500, but as our testing has shown, price isn't a reliable indicator when it comes to quality.

We've found that some expensive models are a let down when it comes to picture quality, while certain cheaper models have blown us away with their abilities. There's no way to know which will be which without buying them and using them. That's why we've picked out seven Blu-ray players that offer superb picture quality, all for under £100.

Top five best cheap Blu-ray DVD players under £100


This Blu-ray player is a solid conventional model, and certainly one worth considering. It delivers pretty good picture and sound quality and comes with heaps of smart features including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Do bear in mind that you are missing out on being able to play 4K Ultra HD discs with this model and for a bit more, you can get that feature with others in this table.


A well featured Blu-ray player for a reasonable price that also does a decent job of playing 3D movies? Sounds like a good deal - and it is. Log in to see which player we're talking about.


A Blu-ray player packed with plenty of smart features for a very reasonable price. It certainly looks like it may offer good value, but how did it do in our rigorous lab testing? Read our full review to find out whether it's worth your money.


Yet another blu-ray player from this brand, this model is average across the board but is the perfect choice if you don't want to spend a fortune. It stands out the most for the features it comes with and how easy it is to use but still does well enough for its picture and sound quality.


The cheapest option on this list, it may be lacking in features but it still manages to provide top value for money.

They aren't all bargains though - here's a few cheap Blu-ray DVD players that aren't even worth their meagre asking price.

Three cheap Blu-ray players under £100 to avoid


This Blu-ray player isn't the worst model we've ever seen. But it's pretty unimpressive and you'll be far happier if you spend your money on a better device. Picture quality when watching DVDs is blurry and Blu-rays look dull. Sound quality could be better too while the lack of wi-fi connectivity means you'll have to plug the player in via an ethernet connection if you want to use any of the internet streaming features.


The price may be tempting for a feature packed Blu-ray player from a big brand name like this, but our testing revealed it's just not worth it, even at this price. Read the full review now to make sure you know which model we're talking about - and to avoid it.
