Laser’s affordable BD3000 Participant can play discs
Laser’s fresh BD3000 Blu-ray Disc participant is not just affordable but it can also play DVDs and Blu-ray Discs from any region in the world so there’s no limit to where you can purchase your films.
We just returned from the united states with a few Blu-ray Discs — which are all Region A — understanding that the Laser BD3000 will have our back and be able to play the movies.
There’s been a few days when we believed the movie we bought abroad was OK for all areas and would work within our region-locked (and far more expensive) Blu-ray Disc participant — but we have the dreaded “the disk won’t play on your area” message.
We were the proud owner of the world beverage.
But that is no problem using all the Laser BD3000 Blu-ray Disc participant that’s priced at only $99.95.
It is quite a compact unit — only 26cm wide and about 20cm deep so it will easily fit into your entertainment device.
And not only can it perform full high-definition Blu-ray Discs bit it can also upscale DVDs to full HD quality also.
It doesn’t end there. There’s an Ethernet jack on the back so you can connect it to your network using a cable — or — in the event you purchase a separate wi-fi dongle if do not have your router close by — so you can access features like BD Live along with any firmware upgrades.
This also comes in handy for DLNA connectivity so it’s possible to get content inside your system away from your computers and attached drives.
On the front of the device is a USB slot which means you might also play files from a USB stick or an external hard disk.
Of course there’s also a HDMI link so that it will plug directly into the latest smart TVs, soundbars and AV receivers also.
Users will also find the red, white and yellow RCA connection on the rear if you are linking the BD3000 into an old TV. But this connection won’t have the ability to provide you with a high definition signal.
Now the Laser won’t provide you with exactly the same thickness of picture and audio configurations that more costly players provide but the quality isn’t far off these other players regardless of having hundreds of bucks cheaper.
And also those costly players won’t perform multi-region discs.
The Laser’s remote control can also be small but it is not backlit so that you’ll need to feel your style or flip it towards some mild to get the secret you’re looking for.
The major playback keys are situated towards the base of the remote and can be easily operated without needing to look at it.
The Laser BD3000 Blu-ray Disc participant can also be backed by a three-year guarantee and is available today at Big W, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Bing Lee. It’s priced at $99.95.
The Laser BD3000 multi-region Blu-ray Disc participant is not only one of most versatile players in the marketplace — it is also one of the most affordable too. That’s an irresistible mix.
