Philips Profile 1.1-compliant BDP7200 Blu-ray player reviewed - Engadget HD

It's no shock that Profile 1.1 players have lost their luster with Profile 2.0 being all the rage, but we figured it prudent to pass along CNET's recent review of the CES-announced BDP7200 just in case. Philips' BD player features a fresh, attractive design, supports Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD Master Audio in bit-stream format and performed excellently in 1080p24. So, what's the problem, you ask? Unfortunately, there's no onboard decoding of the previously mentioned audio codecs, no Ethernet port for firmware upgrades, an inability to understand Profile 2.0 and "subpar image quality in standard 1080p mode." All in all, the 6.4 out of 10 rating screams "mixed bag" to us, and while this particular device may actually be right for some, we'd certainly take a gander at the review linked below before diving on in.

I hope Coby, Emerson or some other player that belongs in the $35 DVD section at Hastings, Wal-Mart, Walgreens or Love's Truck Stop sues Philips for design infringement. God, that thing looks cheap! When I saw the $399.99 price, I wondered if they misplaced a decimal point.
