Plenty of Blu-Ray DVD player jargon to look at but what really matters is how the Philips BDP3000 performs on your television screen at home. Looking at the user reviews at Amazon UK they seem to back up the editorial reviews from the BDP3000 Philips Blu-Ray DVD player with 4 and a half stars out of 5!
One of the reviews of the Philips BDP3000 Blu-Ray DVD player reads:
“Let’s not get too technical about this. What you want to know about any blu ray/dvd player is the picture quality. The picture quality is superb. You really can’t go wrong at this price and I honestly can’t see how much better the more expensive models can be. I have seen the Sony blu ray entry player, the Philips is a bit cheaper, the picture quality is the same. The Sony machine may look a little better. This one is bog standard black and no flashy bits. I was very impressed by the upscale of old ordinary dvd’s. Less impressed by the huge writing that appears on the screen when you skip chapters! If you are looking for some fancy machine to remember your name, make your tea, then this is not it. If you simply want a machine that shows off the best of blu ray then this does it. It might not be the quickest to get going, it may not always remember where you left off (it does sometimes) but it does the thing it is supposed to, the reason you want it, it displays your film in breath taking quality.”.
So if your in the hunt for a Blu-Ray DVD player this Christmas it seems this would be a seriously good contender for your hard earned money. Just one thing to keep in mind the BDP3000 is a lot chunkier than the new slim line models being made which do look cool, but they don’t come anywhere near in terms of value.
