LiteOn's security-minded iHAS takes far too long to erase discs, and its write speeds are inconsistent.
Impressive speakers and YouTube access make the SC-BT200 great value, but performance and format support could be better.
Samsung's SH-B083 is a good choice if you want to add Blu-ray playback to your PC.
LiteOn iHBS212 review
A sensibly-priced Blu-ray writer that's also quick at burning discs.
Plextor PX-B940SA review
Plextor's latest Blu-ray writer isn't as fast or as cheap at the competition, so it's not great value.
LiteOn iHAS524 review
The LiteOn iHAS524 is a good value DVD writer with a reasonably useful, if imperfect, disc labelling feature.
LaCie Portable DVD+/-RW review
LaCie's latest portable DVD writer is a good drive, but cheaper alternatives are available.

Panasonic DMP-BD60 review
Viera Cast and an SDHC slot make the DMP-BD60 stand out, but its slow performance and high price mean it misses out on an award.
Panasonic SC-BT200 review
Sony BDP-S360 review
A decent Blu-ray player, but the BDP-S360 lacks the video and music format support that other players have.
LG HB954PB review
A beefy set of speakers makes this a stunning-sounding home cinema kit, but better value home cinema kits are out there.
Philips BDP3000 review
A beautiful design and nippy performance can't disguise the fact that the BDP3000 lacks features and has some serious flaws as well.
LG BD370 review
The BD370 has great format support, is reasonably quick and has all the features of more expensive players. It wins our Budget Buy award.
Samsung HT-BD1252 review
A budget home cinema kit, the HT-BD1252's tinny speakers don't impress, and it has limited features.
