browse the Blu-Ray player BBK BD3000
impossible dream, the average user is the emergence of multi-functional gadget that when the size of a matchbox know how to call, to write, to read, to shout, to prepare the morning Breakfast and serve it in bed. About the last one does not know, but all of the above functions with the modern development of technology is not so difficult to place in one versatile device. But nobody does and will never do, because if you create one superuniversal, then who will buy more than simple devices?
However, different manufacturers periodically announce the release of universals in a particular area, one of which is our current «experimental» — Blu-Ray player BBK BD3000. When users spread news about the release of the BBK of your Blu-Ray player, the audience, as usual, was divided into three camps: «us is free don’t!», «as cool as soon as possible if this player has been released!» and «our opinion about the device depends on its price. the First is frankly disingenuous, hiding what they don’t know what Blu-Ray. Yes and from free device is unlikely they will refuse. The second category — enthusiasts, who appreciate the taste all the delights of high-definition video, which we put ourselves. The third group — pragmatic-minded citizens, for whom the fact that the novelty does not mean throwing the shops in her search. For them, the price/quality — not the last parameter in evaluating the profitability of purchase. It so happened that today, BD3000 got in our playful pens, and this means that all three groups it is time to know the truth about the first «Blu-Ray pancake company BBK .
If you set BBK BD3000 on the shelf and periodically blow off the dust, then it will be a wonderful decoration of your home. The player definitely feel style: clear outlines of the case, the strict lines of controls and glossy front panel make BBK BD3000 not only functional, but beautiful device. However, the functionality of the player will discuss later, but for now that will continue to see it from all sides.
On the front panel BBK BD3000 there is a power button, the tray drive, the button for opening and closing a small screen and rectangular multi-position control key. using this key you can perform all essential minimum operations: «Play/Pause», «Fast forward», «Stop», «Rewind» (it is on the perimeter of the large rectangular button) and confirm your choice with by clicking «OK», located in the center. I must say that the remote control is not in the sample more buttons — a whopping 46. However, why to overload the player bar, if all mostly use «lazy»?
On the sides Blu-Ray player BBK BD3000 … nothing. Although it is actually wrong to say «nothing», because there are mounting bolts, two pieces on each side! However, no functional as well as aesthetic, loads they carry, so take them for empty space.
Back side of the device is decorated with different connectors, among which are seen cherished HDMI 1.3, allowing you to transfer to the TV video in high quality (1080p) and audio in a single cable. If it so happened that the TV has no HDMI input, but it offers more «classic» connectivity options — composite and component video outputs. If the sound built-in speakers of the TV, do not like something — it is always possible to connect an external speaker system home theater. To do this in BD3000 provides a set of audio interfaces (analog and digital optical and coaxial), allowing you to build a surround sound up to 7.1 channels.
On the top cover are fields vents player and a huge vyshtampovanny symbol Blu-Ray. For those who in modern technologies is not strong at the bottom even made additional inscription — it ’Blu-Ray Disc». The most important thing is to arrange the device so that each part of the house was able to read this inscription and in any case not be confused Blu-Ray player with a simple DVD. All jokes aside, this stamping is also very beautiful to look at.
What can I snow that I heat if USB — 2.0!
Among the variety of back panel connectors BD3000 special attention is drawn to the USB 2.0 port where you can connect an MP3 player, flash drive or digital photo/video camera. It should be noted that it is quite functional and rational, although it is more logical to have USB on the front panel BBK BD3000. Why on the front? And have you tried to get for the system unit of the computer to connect any printer or external hard drive? Of course, the size of the unit does not compare to the size of a Blu-Ray player, however, and in this case, the process «pogryzaniya» through hardship wires to the cherished connector can enjoy only the true lovers of tropical jungle.
Not without its disappointments. So far only supported external drives using the FAT32 file system, which imposes a limitation on the maximum size of one file is 4 GB. So what about a full-fledged and well-converted images of a BD-ROM drive until I have to forget or to get out by breaking the image into parts, which is not very convenient. Hopefully it will be corrected with the next firmware, because the limit explicitly in software, not hardware.
But rather to examine fashionable device, it would be time and its network to include. Unfortunately, to appreciate the convenience and simplicity of installation of the player from the point of view of an ordinary user personally, I a little difficult. The fact that when the plug is not the first dozen different devices, over time, produced a kind of «sixth sense» on where and how to attach some wires which buttons to press and what needs to happen.
of Course, there are always producers-the originals that are tripping over themselves, proving their individuality custom connectors and unusual control layout, but in most cases everything goes «tuto, cito, et jucunde (this is a Latin phrase about how you should act drugs; translates «safely, quickly and pleasantly»). Should be noted that in the case of BBK BD3000 everything was easy and simple, and it speaks to the careful wiring.
a Few minutes — and we are already seeing a welcome word on the screen of our experimental device. What are the possibilities?
