Found this slighty hidden on ebay daily deals, was advertised last week for £70. Having read the reviews and spec for 50 quid its a steal. This is my first post, hope this is some use to everyone.

The Philips BDP2500 offers Philips quality of picture and sound at a top value price.

With x.v Colour, Deep Colour and 1080p resolution at 24fps, the Philips BDP2500 offers a sense of realism that you can only get from Blu-ray. As you'd expect, the BDP2500 will also upscale your existing DVDs to full 1080p meaning that, provided you have a 1080p TV, all your existing DVDs can be viewed at the highest resolution possible. Furthermore, the BDP2500 will also playback DivX Ultra media files for enhanced enjoyment of any DivX recorded material you may have.

Matching this superb picture quality is an equally impressive sound. DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD give accurate and precise sound through 7.1 channels. Philips's usual quality of design shines through with their careful selection and design of audio components giving a better sound quality than many rivals.

In addition to superior quality sound and vision, the BDP2500 has some very useful features. Bonus View lets you watch a second Picture-In-Picture for following film commentary. Subtitle shift allows for widescreen viewing without missing any text. In addition to the usual sockets, you'll also find a USB port that's ideal for uploading any firmware upgrades.

With its rounded edges, the Philips stands apart from other "square" designs and is every bit as distinctive as their flat panel TVs. For thrilling sound and vision from budget Blu-ray, the Philips BDP2500 makes an ideal choice.

something fishy, they say brand Samsung but showing Philips

refurbished from eBay? I'd rather pay full price and know what I'm getting.

I beleive samsung also do the same model number. The outlet must have pulled the description off another website in error. The deal is on ebays official daily deals and from a genuine retailer.

Gets terrible reviews on Amazon I'd stay clear!

The 'item specifics' box is automatically generated by ebay when the seller lists the item,and is frequently wrong.

Techfurb is the outlet for DSG incase anyone wasn't aware

One amazon review says that any bluray with alternate angles will make it keepp proclaiming there's another angle in big letters until you take it off the screen, and then it keeps doing this every chapter or every time there is another alternate angle, ruining the movie.

techfurb is part of pc world currys dixons etc etc

Where does it say refurbished??? It says NRFB which means "'Never Removed From the Box' means the item has never been taken out of the original box, thus never handled."

Are you going by the store name Techfurb? They are Dixons / Currys outlet on ebay.

Video Output System - NTSC??

Thanks mate

For anyone worrying about this company on Ebay. I bought an LG blu-ray player from Techfurb, it was delivered in good time and was new in the box as specified on the listing. I was quite chuffed getting a new player for £50 delivered.

I also bought an LG from them. It was store demo unit (had a sticker on the box saying so), had loads of scratches on the unit where the anti-theft device had been removed, and definately wasn't NRFB and BNIB as it was supposed to be.

Techfurb collected at their cost and refunded, but I was left without a unit so the experiance wasn't good overall.

That said, I guess I was just one of the unlucky people who happened to get the store demo rather than the unsold store stock.

I'd vote cold against the seller (which I can't) but the deal is hot

Good deal but i'm not clued up enough about the ports inputs and media playback capabillities, this means I will end up buying something like the more documented Sony where many questions and answers have been posted.... Is it that good if they only sold 37?

Only a few poor reviews on amazon . Other reviews seem very favourable and at 50 quid you can't go wrong . So I think it's a good deal . Well done op

Interesting...

You just bought one? Says sold 38 now!

Yes . Got the lg off them last time and very pleased with it . Brand new out of the box. Like I said a branded blu ray for 50 quid , show me a cheaper one

apparently you can also flash the firmware to the BDP3000 model so that it will allow you to play files from the USB port, and it will allow you to play .mkv files if you rename then to .avi files

Good link; however I don't think this player is really much of a media player.

There's no USB disk support without cross-flashing the player this can be risky and obviously will invalidate your warranty. It also will only support FAT32 format...

To play renamed .mkv files you can just update the firmware to v1015.1 but without the cross-flash they need to be on dvd or blu-ray....

You can make the DVD region free.

you can also flash this with region a firmware to play usa discs. Ideal as a second region a player.
