Great picture!

  • Summary: This blu-ray player came very well packaged. It took a little longer then I would have expected for it to start working, but once it did it produced a great quality picture. The fan seems to run a bit loud when its left on.

Decent but I found at least one movie it won't play until a firmware update

  • Summary: ]I've owned this unit for a few months now and it works like it should however I contacted Philips to make aware that the newer release from Disney "Bedtime Stories" will not play the main feature.

Might be best in its price

  • Summary: If your receiver lacks ability to tweak 5.1 this unit will let you. Very satisfactory for first BDP. Dark Knight was beautiful in PQ and AQ (5.1 trumped coax) When the robbers baned open the double doors leading to the vault I got my first (but not last) taste of BD sound through the couch and into...
  • Pros: Delivers BD PQ at great price, has 5.1 analog outs which I preferred but coax as well ( when A-B'd the analogs had much punchier sub, surprising array of settings for video and especially audio. They even vented the case for cooling. Dimmable front panel lighting. SD DVD upscaling was as good as ...
  • Cons: Only has resume lay on certain discs, the FF and REW search are not super smooth but will do. Hey Phillips! the way we use our playbackunits- is with the play button between the FF and REW search buttons-NOT Next and PREV chapter buttons. Remote not lighted but I'm learning by touch. Remote is lo...

Great Blue Ray Player!

James S., Newegg
16 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Phillips HDMI cable from another place coupled with Toshiba 40" LCD, I could not be more happier!! Lose the load time and the footprint, this would have been a 5 egger without a doubt!
  • Pros: Great picture quality. Upconverting regular DVDs is quite amazing. My first Blue Ray movie I bought was the Dark Knight. Words could discribe how wonderful the clarity was that this player presented them. The menu functions are intuitive and thoughtout.
  • Cons: It does have a LARGE footprint no doubt! But its ok, its not hurting anything. The load times do seem slow, but this is the only Blue Ray player I have ever owned, but compared to my Sony DVD player, there is a definite difference.

This one is a keeper.

  • Summary: This has been a great machine after 11 months of use. It has been reliable and has played all of my titles without glitches. It bitstreams Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HDMA to my Onkyo audio reciever. I was and am still very pleasantly surprised by this machine. Kudos to Philips.

Decent

  • Summary: The remote is better than my previous Philips upconverting DVD player.
  • Pros: Does what it is advertised. I also like how Phillips plays Divx files.
  • Cons: It's funny how they sell a Bluray player with only composite cables.

Blu-Ray Rocks

Donald L., Newegg
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Large footprint, about the same size as my cable/dvr box -- for me, this is a plus, as I can place the dvr box right on top of it. All ventilation is on the sides, the top is solid.
  • Pros: Does everything it's supposed to well. Beautiful display of Blu-Ray disks. Excellent display of standard DVD disks via HDMI cable.
  • Cons: Slow operation - seems to "think" a while after you press the play or menu buttons - maybe this is typical of Blu-Rays?

  • Pros: Picture and Audio are on par with what you expect from Blu-ray, virtually perfect.
  • Cons: VERY large foot print. Location of Play button in relation to FFW and REW buttons

Excellant Player

David K., Newegg
19 November 2008
  • Summary: Contrary to another reviewer's comments, the player DOES resume playback after stop. However, there are two variations on this model identified by /37 and /F7. I have the F7, which may account for the difference in performance.
  • Pros: This machine outputs stunning sound and video and has many optional adjustable functions through various menus accessed via the remote.
  • Cons: It has a large footprint. Another famous brand player is about half the size, but unless you are really cramped for space, then in this situation size doesn't matter. Bootup is somewhat slow but no slower than my HD player. What's the hurry, anyway? From power-on to playback takes about 70 seconds.

BUON RAPPORTO QUALITA' PREZZO

lmd77, Ciao
30 November 2010
  • Summary: Questo è il più economico lettore Blu-Ray della gamma Philips, ma è anche BDP 2.0, in modo da accedere alle più recenti funzioni speciali tramite Internet (così come l'aggiornamento del firmware) attraverso un cavo ethernet, (ricordarsi di comprare uno).
  • Pros: Economico
  • Cons: Pochi
