    What's with the round or curved desin trend nowadays? That is so late 80's!
    And from the looks of the player, there's no display on it. Many current gen bd players that are less than $150 no longer have displays in their designs, but a couple years ago any player over $50 did.

    I dunno, the wide design of most of the other models reminiscent of VHS players remind me more of the 80s than this unit does.

    This player supports all three HDR formats: The mandatory HDR-10 and the optional Dolby Vision and Technicolor/Philips formats. So far, of the three players announced at CES, this is the only player to do this.

    Here is a link to an excellent review regarding the Philips BDP-7501 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. It is nice to see a USB 3.0 jack located on the back of the Blu-ray player. Also this Blu-ray player is nice and small for portable use. The 12 volt DC input on the Blu-ray player can be used in a car or motorhome with a optional low cost 12 volt DC cigarette lighter adapter (No need to purchase a DC to AC inverter). The review mentions that there is only two 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players now on the market (Samsung and Philips).Technically there is now three 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players on the market,Panasonic now has a model that recently was released in the United States.

    Didn't see this before, but after release it's clear the unit does not do DV.

    Yeah, none offer DV currently. Sony wants the X1000ES to have but but thats unlikely to happen with the estimate release date. Oppo's 203 is the only real viable candidate right now, even then it's nowhere near a guarantee. I bet we hear from 2-3 manufacturers at CES in January about including DV.

    Amazon is currently selling the Philips BDP-7501 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player for only $229.99 plus free shipping (And it includes a free bonus 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc called Creed).

    I see someone mentioned a few days ago that they were able to get this deal above for only $179.99. Prices online can change daily or hourly depending on what the automated computer program determines regarding the current inventory levels.

    Thomas J. Norton at Sound and Vision magazine wrote an excellent review regarding the Philips BDP-7501 Ultra HD Blu-ray player. All or most reviewers make mistakes. The following is kind of a funny mistake. Back on May 12th 2016 Thomas J. Norton published a review online regarding the Samsung UBD-K8500 Ultra HD Blu-ray player and he mentioned correctly that the player will play 1080P Blu-ray 3-D discs. However in his review of the Philips BDP-7501 he mentions that the Samsung Blu-ray player cannot play Blu-ray 3-D discs, which is an error. So far every first generation 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player on the market can play 1080P Blu-ray 3-D discs (Samsung, Philips, and Panasonic currently have first generation 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players on the market). OPPO and Sony will release a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player in early 2017 (or possible mid December 2016 for OPPO).

    The following are two incorrect quotes from the Sound and Vision magazine review:

    It also plays 1080p 3D,which the Samsung player doesn’t.”

    “For buyers with a current and perhaps growing collection of Bluray 3D Discs, the Philips’ 3D capability might be an important factor separating this player from the strictly 2D Samsung player”

    When I posted it on the 17th they were selling the package deal for $179.99.
    Looks like you're a little late
