Recommend me a decent, basic BR player


Active Member
So my old faithful fat PS3 has started to have trouble taking and ejecting discs so I need to find a replacement. Will look into getting repaired but not sure if it will be economical, haven't gamed on it in years: it's solely used to play BRs.

What are AVFs recommendations? I just need 2D, do not need any smart features or streaming services. Don't have a budget but do not need a fancy player, the PS3 has been adequate for my current setup.

Thanks in advance.

We'll I've got a Panasonic 130 in the bedroom. I paid 50 but it's back up to 70. It does have features the features that you don't require, for now anyway, but a great basic player even at 70.
