Philips BDP 7300

 

Excellent 24p movie picture., BD-Live., Very quiet, no fans., Analog 5.1 output., HD audio as bitstream or PCM.

Weaknesses in DVD de-interlacing., HDMI levels deviate from standard.

A superb all-round player, the BDP 7300 brings all of the important features and can even output analog multichannel sound. The quick and quiet disc drive earns extra brownie points, but the Philips does trip up in terms of DVD playback, showing...

Review Of Philips BDP7300 Digital Media Player

 

The new Philips BDP7300 looks absolutely stunning- a smooth, glossy panel with very little buttons dotting it here and there. There is also a USB port on one side for digital media playback.The BDP7300 is also very sturdily built when compared to the...

Philips BDP7300 Blu-ray player

 

Philips hasn't really made an impact in the high-def player market so far but the BDP7300 could put the Dutch manufacturer on the Blu-ray map. It's a fully-fledged Profile 2.0 affair, which puts BD-Live downloads at your disposal (the quality of which...

Quick disc loading, built-in memory, picture and build quality

No Wi-Fi, unreliable WMV playback

It might lack the extensive features and design pizzazz of the Samsung BD-P3600 or the pristine pictures of the Panasonic DMP-BD60, but the BDP7300 it still a solid Blu-ray proposition. The quick disc loading, built-in memory and surprisingly sturdy...

Philips BDP7300 review

 

The Dutch giant comes back to Blu-ray with a bang

Looks ; Built-in memory ; Picture quality ; Ease of use

No 7.1-channel analogue outputs ; Temperamental WMV playback

An impressive Blu-ray player with nifty features and superb pictures, but you can get more for your money from rival brands

Philips BDP7300 review

 

Philips's first Blu-ray player lacks the crispness of the very best, but it's got a great and makes a good budget buy

Full spec despite competitive price ; imaginative styling and big, clear interface ; good black levels, healthy colours

Picture could be sharper and cleaner ; not the sonic detail of very best

Affordable, versatile and easy to use? The Philips BDP7300 will deservedly tempt people to forgive its weaknesses

Philips BDP7300 Blu-ray Player

 

The BDP7300 is the first Philips Blu-ray player we've reviewed and we're rather impressed.

Measured against such distinguished Blu-ray luminaries as the Panasonic DMP-BD60 and the Samsung BD-P3600, the BDP7300 just about holds its own. Its hi-def picture and sound performance is outstanding, disc loading is super speedy and the solid set of...

Philips BDP7300

 

It's not lacking in features though - it's one of only two devices on test that includes its own hard drive cache for use with BD-Live (you'll need it to download content). It's not much at 1GB, but that's a gig more than the others, for which you'll...

Good picture rendering, built-in memory cache for BD-Live, multichannel analogue outputs

Not the very best picture available

There are better-value machines. No Eject button on remote
