Good find, can't you have it delivered to store for free ??

not a bad price at all may consider getting one at this price!

It is cheap, But if there is one manufacturer I would never touch, It would be Philips.

Had plenty of Philips stuff and it's been mid range-very good, they also make higher end TVs which are very popular on mainland europe There's a lot worse quality out there. They are also genuine inventors in the industry, helped invent optical media.

1978 - introduced the laserdisc player

1979 - introduced the Video 2000

1982 - launched the Compact Disc in partnership with Sony

1983 - participated in developing the MSX home computer standard

1991 - introduced the CD-i

2006 - introduced the Blu-ray Disc in partnership with Sony.

+1. i don't care what they've invented lol.

I dont rate Philips much either....
But the main reason i dont buy their stuff is that the design of all their products are hideous.

This is a cheap price though so given it heat.

This isn't a glowing endorsement, as all these except where Sony were partnering failed to take off and plenty of people got burnt by picking their products and the wrong format.

Got a friend with a Philips 47" LCD, Great picture that looks 3D, Still would not touch one myself.

It wasn't really supposed to be, but we are all using their inventions today. The formats that died were usually superior products. Video 2000 for example. SAA CD.

If their Blu-ray player has no design faults you can't go wrong for £80 with ( 2 year warranty?). It's either that or wait for the cheap supermarket brands to appear. which the chavs will probably prefer (Wharfdale etc)

Philips BDP3000/05 Blu Ray player is £99.00 and a £10.00 voucher back if you spend over £100.00 from tom for 3 days . could be a better buy . at argos

Nice price but i havent seen anything better since Macro did the Sharp Blu Ray player for £49.99 - Picked up one and its a superb player.

All the Philips products i have had have performed pretty well!

Plus all B and O TV's have Philips internals.

Is this player the right model or a mistake by Asda ??
I thought that the Philips Bluray was a BDP3000 and its Samsung that has a BDP2500.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but if I have a 720 LCD tv is there any point in me getting a blu-ray player?

....I'm assuming that without the higher spec tv (1080) it wont get used to its full effectiveness?

lol.

Personally think Phillips optical media players are all good. Be in CD/MD/DVD/BR

You would still definitely notice the difference.

Is it just me, or will this not add to the basket!?

out of stock now

That would depend on how far away from the TV you were. Beyond a certain point our eyes cannot see the extra detail. So sure you will definetly notice the difference sitting right in front of the screen but depending on the size of the screen, sitting too far away you'd never tell the difference.

A general rule of thumb is the ideal distance to be from the screen for watching HD content is 1.5x the diagonal of the screen. Further away and your eyes won't be able to resolve the detail, closer and your eyes will be able to resolve too much and you'll see the pixels.

So to answser this persons question about whether its worth getting Bluray if you'll only be able to see 720p. Just do a quick measurement from where the main seating is from the TV. If it's more than 1.5x the diagonal of the screen in distance then no, you won't be able to tell the difference between 1080p, 720p or standard definition and will just be paying more for the media.

That's purely speaking about resolution. Colour can look better going from a DVD to a 720P picture but this comments long enough already. :santa:

Many thanks - very informative.

Some had Philips chassis, other had Thomson (Ferguson) chassis.

I was passing through Accrington Asda (Lancashire) yesterday and they had plenty on the shelf (approx 30 boxes or more). They were priced at £79 each

Still around

Asda fulwood have 20 on the shelf
