Philips BDP3100 - Pocket-lint


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

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.

Philips BDP3100


This Blu-ray player might be light on cutting-edge features, but it's relatively inexpensive.

Easy to use ; Quick start-up time ; Terrific Hi-def picture quality

No Wi-Fi or network streaming ; Lack of built-in memory ; No DivX HD and MKV support

and support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio (bitstream and decoded PCM).

Philips BDP3100


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

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

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

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!
