To make it region free (for DVD's only - not blu rays)

1) With no disc in drive, bring the player out of standby.
2) press number keys "1389310"

Good deal I think, not sure about 300 but the other two disks have never massively dropped in value. Good price if you enjoy those films, and they're all pretty decent

Blueray players are dropping in price rapidly

no BD Live and the USB port is only there for updating the firmware so no playing movies off a USB stick...

not so good then...

Are u sure about the USB port being there for updating the firmware only? Most players I have come across have the USB port there so you can play movies/movies etc from it.

Look up the reviews of the player.... It is mentioned on numerous occasions
It even says "USB: For firmware upgrade" in the Specs

Never buying Philips electronics anymore. Slow and poorly built. Avoid.

I got this from hmv for £100 around Christmas and got the a team with it too. Been perfectly good for my needs, doesn't have a while lot of features but it does the ones it has very well.

Worth the price for The Dark Knight alone....

49.99 for player only in richer sounds

Wow, Heat!

Quidco 5% as well on this, as well a £3 off voucher on voucher codes, makes it a decent deal. In essence pay about £12 for the 3 blu rays.

Only in limited stores and may be ex display or ex repair

This is a 2008-model, slow loading and lacking in functionality. Probably worth spending an extra £20 on a non-obsolete version.

Looking for a blu ray player but will wait for one around the £50 mark. But it's good to see them for this price, hopefully I haven't got long to wait.

Not sure about the BD LIve (even though it DOES have an ethernet port) The USB port DOES play movies, DivX AND x264 ( i know, i watched a x264 rip of Due Date on my one last week) BUT one annoying thing this player WONT do it DTS via HDMI, you have you send DTS though the Coax connection (not even optical) to an external receiver to get surround sound via DTS.

I dont know, IMO it will be the standard for a good few years yet, most people are still use DVDs opposed to BluRay.

Just had the BDP3100 I bought just before Christmas sent back as it had developed a hum so loud it made watching a film unbearable!!!

Let's see what the repair comes back like

Got this when it was £80 at Asda over a year ago. Poor. Keeps losing it's multi-region DVD settings; and picture occasionally blacks out and switches settings. Avoid. Pay a few quid more and get something better.

not so good then...


Agreed - MKV seems absent too.....

You're right from what I read a while back
Bluray is going to be the equivalent of the stone wheel by this time next year.

Said it before and will say it again, tried a Philips player and was the noisiest I have ever heard = took back a week later.

Don't think so as all the film companies are behind the technology and they are making discs with massive amounts of space so i would not bet on that. Bluray is with us for a good few years yet and will only get better, as someone else said most people are still using normal DVD players. The whole Bluray technology is only just now starting to be at a price where everyone can afford one and there's not much differece in price between DVD players and Bluray the industry has spent to much making sure they have the equipment to make the discs and its only now that all the new big films are being released on the format and sold in all the supermarkets.

The big question i have is what technology will be replacing Bluray as its 3D ready and the TV's are only 1080p, there would be uproar by everyone who had just bought the machines. The only time you will see Bluray gone is when we start getting super HD and its not saying that bluray Couldn't be adapted to output higher resolutions.

Tried to order but showing up as £99 when I add to basket : s

Not a chance. Blu Ray will be around for the next 20 years in some form or other. I don't think it will replicate the huge success of DVD, however there will always be a huge market for a physical disk format. People simply don't want to download movies, they would rather have something that they can put on their shelf.

Blurays will be big in the UK for a few years still, definitely.

Streaming HD movies might be gaining popularity, but we are so behind with broadband speeds that it's embarassing. Plus, there's still a large chunk of homes that don't have or want an internet connection.

As for 3D films... pfft! In my opinion, it's pretty much already reached its peak for the next couple of years. Many people aren't converting because of the rather obvious "elephant in the room" being the requirement to wear glasses. Up until a week ago, people were saying the Japanese were going to make 3D without glasses mainstream in the next few years, but I think it will probably take a lower priority with the aftermath of the tsunami disaster.

I love how people spent more on HD DVD players than this after the format had actually lost. Those were fun days on here.

£99.99 now

Got to agree with the other comments about blu-ray being with us for the long haul. I don't see it being replaced as a physical format for some time, and when it eventually is then I would suspect we'll be looking at some kind of flash memory instead of a new disc format.

I wouldn't be surprised if games consoles go the same way which would be strange, going back to cartridges!

Technology Marches on and it marches quicker everyyear, superfast broadband round the corner, download, high def films or just stream, Blu-Ray shot itself in the foot by keeping the price of Players and Films on disc expensive for too long - Now those with big DVD collections will copy them to hard drive, compress etc. to use on more mobile devices, I would not invest in Blu-Ray as there is not doubt our entertainment media will be coming from the Cloud online Apple TV, Google Films you name them - their all going to be fighting for a slice of the pie and it won't be on Blu-Ray.
I certainly would not buy shares in Blockbusters !! , they will end up an online company too (think woolworths without physical products !! ) - if they survive at all.

But there are still a lot of people (probably the vast majority) who would rather have something physical with their films on. How long have mp3's been around and people are still buying cd's. OK so the numbers of cd sales has gone down but I don't think it's going to disappear any time soon. I consider myself to be very tech savvy, but I would still rather have a physical disc whether it be cd, dvd or bluray and I'm sure that a lot of people are the same. Yes, the future may well be streaming and downloading but I don't think it will be wiping out physical formats for decades.

I've heard a lot of complaint about philips lately.
I use to only buy Philips or Sony and strange enough I never ever had a single problems with any appliance.
I still have a 28" CRT TV dated more or less 1995 and the image is fantastic.
Maybe I have just been lucky or they really have started cutting corners lately.

As I stated above, the Philips blu ray player I bought was very noisy and I'm sure it was this model to be honest...was the offer in Asda that time for £50. Was very slow too so I am sticking to Sony for now.
