Philips BDP3100 review

 

In the BDP3100, Philips has produced a great Blu-ray player that's only really beaten on price by its leading rival

Easy to use ; HD audio decoding ; good detail and natural colours ; affordable

Lacks the sonic dynamics of the best around ; pictures could be punchier

Great-value player beaten only by the very best at the price

Expert review by : Danny Phillips (pocket-lint.com)

Philips BDP3100

 

This entry-level Blu-ray deck has been designed to offer cash-strapped buyers the chance to get crisp high-def pictures without having to sell any vital organs. It does mean that the spec sheet is light on cutting-edge features, such as network media...

Picture quality, build quality, ease of use

Light on features, DVD upscaling, no built-in memory

The BDP3100 falls into the no-frills category, lacking the fancy network functionality found on players from Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung. But it does the Blu-ray basics well, offering terrific picture quality and a stress-free operating system.

Very happy with my Blu-Ray DVD player

 

It does just what it says on the label! Very good value for money. I don't know why anyone would decide to pay loads more when this one does it just as well!
