Sony BDP-550 Blu-Ray Player

Sony BDP-550 Blu-Ray Player

Move over, PS3. Our current favorite Blu-Ray player is about to get knocked off its perch by the new Sony BDP-550 Blu-Ray Player ($500; Fall 2008). The slim, blue-faced player offers support for Blu-Ray 2.0 spec, Bonus View PiP, and BD-Live, and features a 1GB storage device, 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output, 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, dts-HD High Resolution Audio, and dts-HD Master Audio decoding and bit-stream output, as well as 7.1 channel analog audio output.

  • Logitech Harmony One

    Logitech has yet again added to its super-popular line of advanced universal remotes. In addition to the standard activity-based control ("Watch a DVD," "Listen to Music," etc.), the Harmony One ($250) sports a 2.2-inch color touch screen, an intuitive button layout and a comfortable ergonomic design. The sleek remote, which sports a piano-black top and a silver base, also has the same easy set up as other Harmony remotes, letting you quickly add settings from over 225,000 devices from more than 5,000 manufacturers (updated almost daily) in Logitech's online database.

  • Slingbox PRO-HD

    If you were disappointed with the HD-input options of the Slingbox Pro, be sure to put the Slingbox PRO-HD ($400; Q3 2008) on your list. The new 'box offers a bevy of inputs and outputs, including digital audio and a digital (ATSC/QAM) tuner. It can stream content up to 1080i with 5.1 surround sound throughout your network, and those with ultra-high-speed internet connections — think FiOS — will be able to stream in HD to remote locations.
