I was in my local asda in Gateshead next to the metrocentre and they were selling the Philips BDP3100 Blu-ray player for £57, I didn't take a picture but going back there on saturday to do my main grocery shop so will take a picture for proof. They only had about 8 left. I would have picked one up myself for home but keeping my money till i do the rest of my xmas shopping. Darn Xmas shopping. Damn YOU!!

Anyhoo, it had a big red banner above promoting it so looks like it should be nationwide, maybe you can check your local asda and check as well.

I think it's a bargain myself.

From what i have researched on this it can play mkv's although one site said it didnt. But no bd-live. But that isn't for everyone tho.

Merry Xmas Everyone!!!

Fantastic player I bought one in Sheffield asda last week bargain and yes it's nationwide but be quick they won't last long at this price !!!!!!
#2
Confirmed as nationwide too. I spotted in Stoke a couple of weeks ago and posted then but someone marked it as spam - even though I STILL can't find a previous post about it!
#3
called our locals, theyre still charging £127 :| (Teesside area)
#4
Good reviews too.
#5
Great price! Would get one if I had an HD telly.

Heat added.
#6
Great item - try online guys HOT HOT HOT!
#7
ive had mine for a few weeks, and its not bad.

though i put a brand new-never been opened bluray in (book of eli) and it stopped playing after 3-10 seconds and wouldnt go any further. the same disk played fine in my ps3 after. i hooked the player up to my network to see if it could update but no update available. tried the disk again after setting up the network and it bloody worked.
#8
Bought one of these from Amazon as a present last Christmas, very decent player and does all you would want.
#9
I believe it was previously the 2700 model at this price (and the 3100 was £127), perhaps it's now been changed?

the 2700 was the previous £57 (still out of stock online even though I got an SMS this morning to say it was back in stock!), this 3100 deal IS NOT Nationwide (called 6 Teesside stores this morning)
#11
Great price, had mine for 10 months and its very good.
Also good at playing blu ray movies on DVD.
#12
This gets weirder, called Asda Customer Services who confirmed that electricals prices ARE universal across all stores but the BDP3100 has NOT been reduced!

So seems like either:

a) there is some confusion and this is actually the 2700 people are talking about?

or

b) some stores have screwed up the pricing of the 3100s (in which case go nuts! :))
#13
Heat added was looking for cheap blu-ray player to stop my son from touching my ps3 when he wants to watch films :D
#14
Ahh, it was the 2700 I spotted in store.http://www.simon-day.co.uk/hotdeals/asda-bluray.jpg

anyone bought or used the 2700? Still seems a good price
#16
Nice deal. Not the most powerful Blu ray on the market, but need a cheap one in the living room, which probably can move into the bedroom afterwards. Pick one up after work if in stock. Heat added!
#17
Just to let people know (if indeed it is the 2700) that this player cannot send a DTS signal to your receiver via your TV optical connection (Dolby Digital is fine) you will have to use the digital coax connection to you receiver (make sure your receiver has one, there is no optical connection)

OP was it the 2700 or 3100 you got for £57 in Metrocentre?

Nice deal - Heat added.

Link to a thread on the BDP2700.
Great piece of kit, loads of features, plays mkvs, usb slot... but rather noisy when you fire it up.

Haven't any experience of the 3100 in this thread, but voted hot on the assumption it's at least as good as the 2700.

Ah thanks for that info mate. Killed it for me! Hot though.

Great player, got mine hooked up and it plays avis straight from an external hdd, runs perfectly.

Incredible device.. I paid £150 for it's brother BDP3000 and that doesn't allow this at all, it claimed it did but only ran avis off dvds which freeze during the movie. The usb port on that only lets you firmware update. So this asda model is a great deal better and a 1/3rd of the price.

Also in regards to noise, it's not silent, but it's far from noisy. Nothing near as bad an an xbox.

Hi i am sure it was the bdp3100, i am going back 2moro for my main shop, but it was advertised as being the 3100. If i'm wrong i'll hold my hands up and say sorry ppl.

But more than sure it was the bdp3100. When i go 2moro will take a picture and will double check the model number.
#25
I just picked up a 2000 series...dont know the specific model but i imagine its the 2700 for £57 @ Small Heath Birmingham Asda....They seem to have quite a few left. Heated thx OP
#26

Bad news. I've just been to ASDA MetroCentre and they don't have any in stock and haven't for some time. The banners are still up advertising this £57 offer but they sold out a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned that "someone had seen some earlier today" but they've checked the stock report and none were delivered. They're keeping the £57 signs up to reel customers in but they've no stock to support this. Oldest trick in the book... And yes - as other people have said - oos online for some time as well...
#28
So why's this deal so hot if there's little if any stock available & there's a doubt that this machine was ever offered at £57 anyway ?

*confuzzled*
#29
I tried calling Swanley store which is the closest (1/2 hour drive) since 8am, worst customer service ever. Told Amanda on main switchboard I was just getting a recorded message from the entertainment desk so she said she's try & just put me thru again to them. Rang her back & she said if no one was answering the desk no one could check the stock, not even someone else in the store oO
so rang the Asda main customer services who couldn't check stock either & told me to just keep trying the store... ridiculous!
Tesco's are a million times better, last year they found an item in stock for me at a branch & reserved it for collection.
ASDA SUCK!!!

I just saw a few of the 2700 for £57 in Birmingham Kings Heath store.

i bought the BDP-3000 from asda about 5 months ago for £50, they had a pallet load just as you walked in at fosse park leicester
but never used it just sold it on av forums for £50 still with cellothane on
regarding the avi's. it will play avi's from a hdd or usb pen
after doing the latest firmware update
that was the main feature of the latest update.
so check the philips website
#32
The deal is NOT for the Philips BDP3100, but is for the old stock BDP2700 which they are trying to get rid of.
Most stores across the country will already have gotten rid of them so good luck if you want the BDP2700. You will not manage to get the BDP3100 for that price though.
#33
£127 at my local in sheffield. Has this expired now or???
#34
How is this deal hot? As someone else has pointed out, the product is not on sale at the price mentioned........

Do we know if this can play Region 1 discs?
#36
Anyone know if this offer is still on?
#37
Folks :-
I brought a BDP2700/05 from the new Asda in Hazel Grove, Stockport (the old co-op) for £57. I've no idea how many they've got left (at least one as it's hiding behind a christmas tree on the customer services desk 'advertising' the offer) and I believe more in the stock room.

Picked up the last 2 at Nottingham Hyson Green today, so they are still getting deliveries. West Bridgeford said to ring in the mornings as they get a delivery every day, and they don't know what they get till it comes. Seems to play everything, divx, MKV, WMV, avchd ( had to rename to avi to get it to see it) Also plays BD9 and BD5 discs too. Will play divx etc from USB or written to a data DVD. For the price, its brilliant. A right little media player!

Do we know if this can play Region 1 discs?
Region free:
Here's the multiregion info:

1. Make sure there is no disc in the tray when you switch on.
2. Press "home" key on remote control.
3. Enter number "1389310".
4. Switch off. Wait a few seconds and then switch on...now region free.

More info thx to Kaneeda from thedigitalfix

Pros:

-Can be made multiregion for DVD playback (see procedure below).
-It's quite fast, about 5seconds startup time and discs load quick.
-Simple enough to use, remote is basic but has the essentials, and the setup menu is similar (few options but all the essentials in place).
-Includes an ethernet port for software updates and BD-Live (but no network media playback support).
-Includes a front USB port which supports usb devices for media playback. I plugged in a 1tb NTFS formatted hard drive and it read it fine, played back most of the files. Those tested include 720P and 1080P MKV files, embedded subs worked on MKVs, it also played divx avis. The only files it had trouble with were my JDrama and Anime which tend to use less common audio formats and video standards (AAC audio was a main problem). So, to put it basically, 'scene' release stuff it handled fine, anything with less common formats it might have trouble with.

Cons:

-the player has an audible humm at all times, not really a problem in most scenarios as the film audio will drown it out but in quiet moments it might bother you. I'd say it's the kind of thing you'd probably get used to, and certainly some people might not notice it at all. it also seems to make disc accessing noises quite frequently during playback.
-it cannot bitstream or decode DTS-HD MA - it only passes the core DTS. I haven't tested LPCM 5.1 or Dolby TrueHD yet but I've read it can handle those.
-reading around there seems to be a question mark over the quality of Philips support in terms of firmware updates.
-I wasn't keen on the OSD when skipping chapters (huge numbers appear on the screen, almost filling the height of the screen, eg: 2/14 )

I think that about sums it up. It's a decent cheap player overall with the multiregion DVD and usb playback features a bonus.

Can anyone confirm the maximum size mkv file this can cope with from USB? Will I need to split files?
