Philips BDP3000 review

 

Philips' Blu-ray player is a good value deck that excels with HD movies

Connects to broadband instantly ; High detail ; Excellent onscreen menus

Some judder ; BD Live needs USB stick ; No playback from USB port

Similarly priced machines just outgun it on features, but this good value deck triumphs on pure high-definition detail

Philips BDP3000 Blu-ray player

 

There's been a lot of rubbish talked about Blu-ray's slow growth. Probably as a reaction to the hyperbole from the format's promoters, its success has been downplayed; the truth is, Blu-ray is more than grazing our interest in the UK. Despite excellent...

BD-Live, DivX playback, excellent value pictures, good upscaling

No media USB port, external memory stick needed for BD-Live

Despite excellent build quality, cool minimalist styling and a simple approach to onscreen menus and fast disc playback, it’s this deck’s excellent value pictures that should give it a wide appeal, despite the slightly cumbersome BD-Live arrangement.

Shortlist the Philips BDP3000 Blu-ray player if you rank performance, design and value higher than features.

Philips BDP3000 review

 

Philips' BDP3000 is one of the most attractive players we've seen, with its clean, minimalist lines. The front panel contains four plain buttons and the disc tray, and its rounded edges are a relief from the harsh lines of most players. However, this...

A beautiful design and nippy performance can't disguise the fact that the BDP3000 lacks features and has some serious flaws as well.

Philips BDP3000 review

 

The Philips BDP-3000 Blu-ray player has a decent picture and lively sound – all at a tantalisingly affordable price

Ultra-competitive price ; intuitive interface and smart design ; detailed, lively sound and decent picture

No DTS-HD decoding ; not as sharp or subtle as rivals ; sound lacks solidity

A solid performer at a tantalisingly affordable price

Philips BDP3000

 

Philip\'s latest Blu-ray player, the BDP3000, is reasonably priced and looks good. With all the HD bases covered it\'s a great entry-level device.

Sleek looks and full compliment of connectivity options.

No DivX or MP3 playback via USB.

Philips BDP3000 Blu-ray disc player

 

Easy to set up and use but hardly the cheapest nor the most versatile Blu-ray player around.

The BDP3000 is a solidly built Blu-ray, DVD and CD media player that performs extremely well. It also provides a decent range of video-out and audio-out ports, plus an Ethernet connection. It is not an all-round media player, though: there is no...

Neat styling and good build quality. Strong picture quality. Great value. Simple user interface, easy set-up

No front USB connection or playback of movies etc from USB connector on back. No Eject button on the remote - you have to use the one on the machine itself. Limited built-in memory

brilliant player

 

Bought this player from ElectricalDeals and it was delivered the next day. The reason i went for this was because of the price. I don't need top of the range player just something that does what it says on the box. Only downside is the remote is not as...
