      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great player at incredible price

      Recently, Asda had an extremely popular sale on this DVD. Selling at less than half the RRP, at an incredible £57, people were snapping these up like hot-cakes and before we knew it, Asda were sold out.

      Luckily, I managed to snatch the last one off the shelf at my local Asda (narrowly avoiding being beaten by a scary looking elderly lady) and purchased it as a present for my Dad.

      I've never owned any Philips electricals before and this was the second blu-ray I had bought, the first being a Sony model, so was unsure what to expect.

      The player itself is the typical sleek, black design and is approximately the same size as pretty much all standard blu-ray player. It is also light weight.
      The general feel and look of the product is that of a well designed and strong product.

      The player comes with BD Technology, which allows you to access online features (2.0 operating system).

      It also has a 2.0 USB input which allows you to play music etc via such devices as a usb stick.

      It displays full HD picture at 1080p, (24 frames per second) which is extraordinally crisp and smooth and I was extremely suprised at the wonderful smoothness this player offers.

      DivX playback is supported, which also has a 'ultra certified' addition which displays an even crisper image over this format

      DVD Upscaling to 1080p via HDMI lead which makes DVD appear almost HD quility

      Handy subtitle shift if not viewing films on widescreen so subtitles do not run off edge of screen

      Dolby True HD 7.1 which provides superb surround sound at unbeatable quility


      The remote control is easily used, with a simple layout and easy to use menus.

      The initial set-up is very simple and takes seconds and the overall results are superb


      All in all, this is a great blu-ray player and to be honest, paying an extra £100-£200 on a bigger brand name won't be of much benefit because this player offers everything at a great quility and even better price, because, even now Asda have stopped the sale, you can still get these for about £90 online...

    Enjoying true HD video has never been easier than with the ultra slim Philips Blu-ray Disc player BDP2700. Experience high fidelity Dolby TrueHD surround sound and DivX Ultra for enhanced DivX video playback via USB.

    Subtitle shift is an enhancement feature that lets users manually adjust a movie's subtitle positioning on the television or computer screen. Using the remote control, users can shift the subtitles up and down on the screen. On widescreen displays, such as 21:9 cinema and projectors, the subtitles sometimes get cut off. In order to see them clearly, the user has to change the display aspect ratio, which defeats the purpose of the widescreen. With the Subtitle Shift feature, the user can retain the correct display aspect ratio and have the subtitles ideally positioned on the screen.

    Blu-ray Discs have the capacity to carry high definition data, along with pictures in the 1920 x 1080 resolution that defines full high definition images. Scenes come to life as details leap at you, movements smoothen and images turn crystal clear. Blu-ray also delivers uncompressed surround sound - so your audio experience becomes unbelievably real. The high storage capacity of Blu-ray Discs also allow a host of interactive possibilities to be built in. Seamless navigation during playback and other exciting features like pop-up menus bring a dimension to home entertainment.
