Philips BDP7200/37 Blu-ray Disc Player

 

BonusView Blu-ray player has great image and sound quality.

Excellent picture and sound

Slow ; Uncommunicative menus

Those complaints aside, the BDP7200 distinguishes itself by delivering terrific image and audio quality at a comparatively low price. Support for BonusView, too, makes this model a great choice

Editors' note June 9, 2008 : The rating of this player has been changed since its initial publication to reflect changes in the marketplace.

Unique design; can output Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio in bit-stream format; excellent video quality in 1080p/24 mode; Profile 1.1 compliant

No onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; subpar image quality on Blu-ray Discs in standard 1080p mode; lacks Profile 2.0 support; no Ethernet jack for firmware upgrades.

The BDP7200 has a unique design and is Profile 1.1 compliant, but subpar Blu-ray image quality and the lack of onboard audio decoding options limit its appeal.

The $399 Philips BDP7200 is a Profile 1.1 player, which means it contains the secondary audio and video decoders needed for picture-in-picture playback. However, it does not support BD-Live Web functionality. The back panel sports the following video...

Review: Philips BDP7200 Blu-ray Disc Player

 

In a subtle but refreshing departure from the look of your average disc player, Philips' BDP7200 boasts smooth curves, a glossy finish and a large, legible front panel display. Couple that with its consistent, glitch-free disc playback and Profile 1.1...

Speaking of the PS3, it is once again hard to look at a $399 player without drawing comparisons to the venerated game console. Unlike the PS3, the BDP7200 does not have an Ethernet port and it's not compatible with Profile 2.0 features such as BD-Live....

Introduction Philips' first Blu-ray player, the BDP9000, quietly crept into the market in late 2006. Upon its initial release, the player cost $1,000, did not support 1080p/24 output, and lacked any means of passing high-resolution audio formats. The...

Philips BDP7200 review

 

When we saw how good the Blu-ray version of 'The Searchers' looked on Philips' $400 BDP7200, we wrote down: "looks like VistaVision" - because that's truly how clear and crisp we found the image.

Minor complaints aside, the Philips BDP7200 distinguishes itself by delivering terrific image and audio quality at a comparatively low price - in the US, at least. Support for BonusView, too, makes this model a great choice, so it may be worth waiting...

The Philips BDP7200 Blu-ray player made its bow at this year's CES, and is set to hit the UK in October. Our review of the US-based product suggests it could be well worth the wait.
