Finally ! A Blu-ray player for under R2k hits our shores.
I’m not sure how long the special is going to be on, or if it has already finished, but Makro were advertising the Philips BPD3000 Blu-ray player for R1999.
This is the baby of the new Philips line up of Blu-ray players so it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that the pricier ones have, but it apparently does a very good job at its primary function: outputting HD video and audio.
It comes with all the ports you need at the back, including Ethernet and USB for BD Live downloads.
I’m sure that if you wait a few more months before investing in a Blu-ray player there will be a few more options on the market.
If you can’t wait for HD goodness, this is the best deal around at the moment.
