Philips BDP5506/F7

9 September 2011
  • Summary: We wouldn't recommend the Philips BDP5506 over competing Blu-ray players.
  • Pros: The Philips BDP5506 has built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, a simple user interface, and a few high-quality streaming-media services, including Netflix, Vudu, and Pandora. Its MediaConnect screencasting feature also allows you to stream the display of a laptop directly to the BDP5506.
  • Cons: The Philips is the only player we've tested this year to offer below-average image quality on Blu-ray movies and DVDs. Its suite of streaming-media services also lacks premium services like Amazon Instant, MLB.TV, and Hulu Plus. And despite its shortcomings, the BDP5506 costs the same as better, competing Blu-ray players.
