Philips BDP7500 Blu-ray player


India takes time to catch up with the new trends in technology, but already the niche early adopters, call them videophiles in this case, have started developing keen interest in Blu-ray discs and the high definition movie format. Blu-ray players are...

The BDP7500's MRP is Rs. 25,990, while the MOP Rs. 24,990. I know the PS3 is cheaper, and blah blah, but small things make a difference, like this standalone player power consumption at 22 watts is about 1/6th a PS3. But still, this player is a bit...

The Philips BDP7500 offers solid pictures and comes better equipped at processing audio than most

Excellent pictures; Good audio for home cinema; Good value for money

Not brilliant with CDs; Lacks some features

Assuming that these features aren't of interest to you, it's well worth an audition

Philips BDP7500 review


The Philips BDP7500 looks like a fairly standard Blu-ray player at first glance, but it's actually a really impressive machine. Its styling is lovely, and we're big fans of its ability to play downloaded Internet video in a variety of popular codecs....

Attractive styling ; Excellent picture and sound quality ; Fairly speedy load times

Price is rather steep ; Networking performance is a damned nightmare

Although the BDP7500 is slightly more expensive than many current players, its extra codec support, fast load times and fantastic styling make it a worthwhile purchase in our opinion

Blu-ray hasn't revolutionised home movie viewing in the same way as DVDs, but it's certainly here to stay. Other options for watching movies in high-definition are to subscribe to Sky's HD movie channels, or download gigantic files from online movie...

This smart-looking Blu-ray player is a good buy if you want analogue surround sound outputs, but most people are better of with a cheaper model or a PlayStation 3.

This Philips Blu-ray spinner is sexy, but does it deliver the goods where it counts?

A solid BD spinner and a real looker, but some rivals perform better

Philips BDP7500S2


A decent enough effort that will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Philips TVs - but there are better all-rounders for the money

Solid, stylish build and finish; sharp hi-def and standard-def pictures; rich colours

Sounds on the bright side; class-leaders are clearer and more detailed with 3D and 2D content

A deeply impressive effort from Philips

Excellent build; smooth, inviting picture; muscular sound; good spec

Shaded for picture and sound by one price rival; no wireless or DLNA support

First take: Philips BDP7500SL


Fancy a Blu-ray player with 7.1-channel discreet audio output for under S$500? This new midrange entry could be your first choice.

Philips BDP7500 review


We all know that flatpanel TVs are the slickest gadgets going, but there's no reason why your Blu-ray deck shouldn't look just as good. With this in mind, Philips has launched the BDP7500, one of the best-looking disc-spinners in town. Read our Philips...

It looks gorgeous, provides comprehensive connections and conjures up terrific pictures. Disc loading is also quick

No Wi-Fi or network streaming

Basic features compared with some rivals, but that aside the BDP7500 doesn't put a foot wrong
