3. Logitech Revue with Google TV

  • RRP: $299

Google TV is only available in the US at the moment, and because so much of its functionality is tied into US-based services it is probably worth waiting for an official launch. Having said that, we like watching iPlayer in HD and being able to search for online television programmes direct from the television is a good – if somewhat cumbersome – feature.

The Panasonic DMR-BW880 has almost every feature you could hope for in a media player. The 500GB hard drive can store plenty of compressed video recordings (which can also be copied to Blu-ray), its network support allows internet features and media sharing, and, best of all, it's cheaper than the model it replaces.

All in all, the Samsung BD-C8900 is an excellent 3D Blu-ray player with good PVR functionality. While a little on the steep side, it's one of the only ways to record 3D television - which is sure to appear more frequently in the future.
