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

Philips BDP3000 Blu-ray player review


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. It's arguably...

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

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

This deck's excellent value pictures 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.

The socket line-up is completed by component, composite, coaxial digital and analogue stereo outputs. Unsurprisingly there are no multichannel analogue outputs like the BDP7300, which will only be a problem if your receiver lacks HDMI inputs and you...

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 BDP3000/05 review


The Philips BDP3000/05 lacks DTS-HD MA decoding and, annoyingly, requires that you supply a 1GB USB memory stick in order to access BD-Live content. But it's well-built, speedy to load discs and delivers good picture quality. All in all, it's a good...

Impressive design and construction ; Easy to use ; Great picture quality

You need to supply a 1GB memory stick before you can access BD-Live content

Conclusion It's annoying that you need to supply a 1GB USB memory stick to be able to access BD-Live content, but, in most other respects, the Philips BDP3000/05 is a great budget Blu-ray player. It feels like it's built to last, it's fast to load...

Philips BDP3000


A solid performer 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

Expert review by:

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.

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

Great blu-ray player


All in all for the price it is an exceptional blu-ray device, But hey its a Sony so you wont be let down.

Has Vudu Netflix, Hudu and qriocity entertainment services, plus a slew of other cool extra net based entertainment

My MP3 player will not work on it
