Philips BDP3100 review

 

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 does the Blu-ray basics well, offering terrific picture quality and a stress-free operating system, but lacks the features of similarly-priced rivals

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).

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

This product is not the best I have ever purchased BUT it is very very good, simple to use with easy clear controls and an excellent picture and sound output, for the price this is one of the best on the market

Very Good

 

Very pleased so far with this product, standard DVD much improved, cannot comment on actual Blu-ray disc performance as I have yet to purchase any!!

Consumer review by:

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!
