Review of Philips BDP2500 blue ray player

 

Good points: This player is stylishly curved at the edges and feels more substantial than most. As an older machine there are some low prices online. The user interface is particularly easy to understand. The picture quality is also exceptionally crisp...

there are no web apps here, so no YouTube access. It's not as fast as loading and playing a disc either

Nice cheap and handy blueray, it managed to play all the newest bluerqays without needed an update.

Some disc can take a good 5 mins to load, not a major negative I suppose it just gives you time to grab soem munchies.

Excellent value and simple to use

 

Excellent value and very easy to set up. Bought to replace a std DVD and play the occasional Blu-Ray. Excellent on screen options. Doesn't come with HDMI cable - you'll need to buy one (for around £7).

Great Purchase

 

I got this great little player in the sale for £77, technically it's my second Bluray player as I used to have a PS3 which I used for Blurays. Compared with the PS3 (which is a good player also) this works just as well producing a great picture quality...
