Toshiba Launches the BDX3000 3D Blu-ray Player

Posted Thu Sep 16, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It's the company's first 3D capable player, designed to complement the new WX800 Cinema Series TVs.

"3D is changing the movie industry," says Toshiba VP Scott Ramirez. There's no question about that, 3D is big, and Toshiba's finally jumping on the bandwagon. "The new Toshiba BDX3000 allows everyone to bring 3D home, and create that immersive experience in the comfort of the living room."

As far as players go, you won't find anything too surprising here. The BDX3000 plays back 3D Blu-ray discs as well as standard DVDs at a 1080p resolution. It can play back files from a USB drive or SD card, and can jump online for Bonus View features.

There's WiFi capability included in the BDX3000, so getting hooked up for Blockbuster on Demand, Netflix, Vudu and Pandora is simple. It also includes an Ethernet port for those that prefer to go with the wired approach.

You can find the BDX3000 at a price of $249.
