Philips BDP7500 Blu-ray player

 

Look at the Blu-ray market and you'd think it had gone the way of DVD players already, with £70 machines not uncommon in the January sales. Most of those players are the very definition of basic. Philips' latest tries to up the ante slightly by...

Versatility, colours, USB playback, quick disc loading

No Wi-Fi connectivity or home networking

The BDP7500 is a step-up from mass-market Blu-ray spinners, but only just. The main example of this status is how the Profile 2.0 BDP7500 deals with BD Live, though its built-in storage is only one step in the right direction – Wi-Fi connectivity would...

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...

Philips BDP7500 review

 

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 BDP7500 review

 

This Blu-ray player is a real flag in the sand for Philips; it holds up well against the class-leaders, and at a good price too

Beautifully made ; multichannel output and built-in memory as standard ; bold, vibrant picture ; rousing sound

Colours lack subtlety ; image is a little soft compared to rivals ; hint of thickness to sound

One of Philips’ better BD spinners and an attractive unit if you want a matching deck for your Philips TV

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

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

No Wi-Fi or network streaming

Philips Blue-Ray Player BDP7500SL [Review]

 

Enjoy very good Blu-ray playback

Failed QPEL test, not YouTube or internet friendly, expensive
