Editorial Review
The Philips BDP9000 DVD player is the first model from Philips that plays high-definition Blu-ray Discs, which takes advantage of today's flat-screen HDTVs by playing content at native 720p or 1080i video resolutions. The clarity and full-color spectrum of the vibrant video produced from Blu-ray movie discs, which provide five times the resolution of standard DVD movie discs is absolutely amazing. The Philips BDP9000 also offers backward compatibility for DVD movie and CD audio discs, and has an upconverting function that brings your favorite DVDs to near HD quality through the HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) output. The player includes one (HDMI) output, which provides uncompressed multi-channel digital audio, digital High Definition video delivered via a single cable (720p/1080p). High-definition signals up to 1080i are also available through the component video output for Bluray discs (standard DVD's are output 480p through component video). Note that viewing high-definition Blu-ray Disc content requires an HDTV or HD-ready TV.

The user-friendly graphic interface includes a full-color, hi-def animated menu, with features such as advanced subtitle functions, video scene search and pop-ups--which provide informative tidbits and are embedded in Blu-ray Disc contents.

The unique 10-in-2 multi-format memory card slot displays 3-megapixel and larger images. It's compatible with Secure Digital (SD), MultiMedia (MMC), CompactFlash, MicroDrive, XD Picture Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Duo Pro, Memory Stick Pro, RS MMC, and Mini SD. Other technical features include:
  • Up to 1080p (1920 x 1080p) output through HDMI digital output
  • Selectable 1080p/1080i/720p video upconversion of DVD's through HDMI
  • BD-RE, BD-ROM, DVD ROM, DVD RAM, DVD-R/RW, DVD R/RW, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW playback compatible
  • MPEG2, VC-1, H.264, HD JPEG decoding
  • 12-bit/192MhZ video D/A converter; 24-bit/192KHz audio D/A converter

The BDP9000 provides a full range of audio decoding, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby DTS, and MP3. It has stereo outputs as well as coaxial and optical digital audio outputs for 5.1-channel home theater surround sound. It offers the following video output connection options:
  • HDMI: 1
  • Component Video: 1
  • S-Video: 1
  • Composite AV (RCA): 1

Blu-ray Disc Format
The next-generation Blu-ray optical disc format was created by a group of the world's top consumer electronics companies, including Philips and Sony. This format was intended to meet the demand for playing and recording high-definition content, which far surpasses the video quality DVD can handle. With remarkable high quality video and crisp audio clarity, Blu-ray also offers increased storage capacity--up to 25 GB of content on a single-sided disc and enough space for two hours of high-definition movies or recorded content. (This is over five times the 4.7 GB of data a standard single-sided DVD disc can store.) The name Blu-ray is derived from the blue-violet laser the player uses to read and write to the disc.

Tech Talk
HDMI: is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver) with your TV--all over a single cable. HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It supports all ATSC formats--standard (SDTV), enhanced (EDTV), and high (HDTV).

Component video: (also called Y/Pb/Pr) features a three-jack video input, which provides separate connections for luminance or "black and white" (Y), blue color difference (PB) and red color difference (PR). This results in increased bandwidth for color information, resulting in a more accurate picture with clearer color reproduction and less bleeding than you would get with S-Video or composite (RCA yellow video plug) connections. You will need a separate RCA left/right audio cable for sound or you can use a digital connection like "digital coaxial" or "optical".

High Definition Formats: The most common high-def (HD) video format is 1080i, which displays video at 1080 vertical by 1920 horizontal pixels. The "i" means that it is interlaced (interlaced means the screen scans the odd-numbered video lines first, then the even-numbered lines). The 1080p format has the same pixel resolution as 1080i, but it is a progressive scan format and thus has a constant vertical resolution of 1080 lines. The "p" denotes that it is progressive scan, meaning that all video lines are filled at the same time. Another high-def (HD) video format is 720p, which displays video at 720 vertical by 1280 horizontal pixels. It displays the same way as as 1080p except at a lower resolution.

What's in the Box Blu-ray DVD player, remote control (multibrand for TVs; comes with batteries), printed operating instructions.

Here is what people are saying about the Philips BDP9000 Blu-Ray Disc Player
2 Star Rating  "Bogus Sale" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from US
I never could get this product to play my Blu Ray discs. It plays my regular DVD's just fine, but for Blu Ray, I would recomend something better.
5 Star Rating  "Works Great!"

I am yet to have any problems with this player, it has played every Blu-Ray I've thrown at it flawlessly.
3 Star Rating  "A Quick Look" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Great picture! After upgrading the firmware, the Philips BDP9000 had no problems playing Blu-ray discs including Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Philips hasn't appeared to keep up with their firmware updates, however, and the recent film SUNSHINE would not play at all. All was not lost, however, since the Philips machine is identical to the Samsung BD-P1000 (except for cosmetics) and Samsung appears to still be releasing regular firmware updates. I was able to update the firmware to the latest release for the Samsung BD-P1000 and play the film fine. Of course my Philips BDP9000 now thinks its a Samsung.

Some darwbacks of the Philips:
- No advanced onboard audio decoding or options
- Pressing STOP will often start the film over from the beginning
- SLOW startup/loading/disc tray opening
- May no longer be supported by Philips

Not too bad of a blu-ray player if you can find one for under $200.. though you may end up spending a lot more on a new receiver if you also want to play the new HD audio formats.
1 Star Rating  "Won't play my Blue Ray discs" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I bought this player in June, I did not get a 1080p tv until Dec. The player plays my regular dvd's fine but when I tried a couple of blue ray discs I discovered. 1.The third Pirates Of The Carribien movie would only play the previews and the bonus disc, and 2.The third Resident Evil movie will not play at all. I called Phillips customer care and they sent me another player ( this took 10 days ). The replacement acted exactly the same as the first. After another call to Phillips I was finally told that this was a known problem and they would be getting back to me in a day or 2. I am still waiting for them to resolve the problem.
1 Star Rating  "Won't Play Some Discs" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Des Moines, IA USA
For the money, I am pretty disappointed that this player will not play some discs. The discs are brand new, but shows like Weeds simply will not play. I signed up for Blockbuster to get blue-ray discs in the mail, but canceled the membership when the admittedly roughly handled discs would skip or lock up. Very unsatisfied.
5 Star Rating  "Great Blu-Ray Player" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Medical Lake, WA
I just picked up this model a few weeks ago, and so far I'm very impressed. Standard dvds look amazing and Blu-rays look absolutely stunning. I've read some complaints about the audio options, but I don't know what that's about. I have it hooked up through digital optical and multi-channel, and the sound is phenominal. Also, the setup menu options are very user friendly. I don't know why more people aren't buying this model. There's my 2 cents.
