1. $99 Sony Blu-ray Player (Models S270, S370)
These players, marked down from $179 in Black Friday ads at Target (NYSE: TGT - News), Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT - News), Walgreen's (NYSE: WAG - News), and Costco, among others, are billed as offering Internet video, but they aren't nearly as cheap as they seem. They're Wi-Fi ready, rather than coming with built-in Wi-Fi. You'll need an $80 adaptor to go wire-free, says Manu Sachdeva, the director of ecommerce for gadget marketplace Retrevo. "On spec it looks great, but most homes don't have or want Ethernet cables running [from the modem to] behind the TV," he says. A better bet would be the Sony S570 with WiFi, which Wal-Mart currently has on sale for $158 instead of $250, he says. Although it's a more expensive player, you'd save $21 on the whole setup.
