Who makes it:
What it costs: $3,995
Why we like it: Even with the growth of movie download services, millions of
consumers still purchase Blu-ray discs and DVDs for home viewing each month.
There's no better place to organize your collection than with Kaleidescape's
Cinema One player. Users purchase movies and TV shows from Kaleidescape's
online store or use the player's built-in burner to copy video to a hard drive.
The service also links titles to UltraViolet accounts for downloading or
streaming copies to mobile devices. However, you'll need to plan ahead to use
this feature since it's not as fast as simply purchasing and downloading a
movie off of iTunes.
