Philips launches £249 BDP7300 budget Blu-ray player

Philips BDP7300

It's a Profile 2.0 player, so supports BD-Live and has a 1GB internal memory, and delivers 1080p/24fps video content.

The BDP7300 has Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 decoding and an HDMI v1.3 connection. There's a USB port on the front and support for DivX, WMV, MP3, WMA and JPEG files.

Last but not least, Philips (opens in new tab) is keen to push the player's quick start-up times and eco-friendly power consumpion – with just 0.2 watts of power used in standby.

Due out this month, the Philips BDP7300 will set you back £249. We hope to bring you a review in the September issue.
