The BDX3200KE is Toshiba's highest-end Blu-ray player. To stand out from the rest of the range, this prime model boasts 3D Blu-ray capabilities. However, that doesn't necessarily mean it comes with all the other must-have functions of the moment. Unfortunately BDX3200KE takes a no fills approach to functions and design. It suffers from the same faults as the BDX1250KE, with low-grade shiny plastic that stands in stack contrast to the metal frame. While other manufacturers have been making efforts to modernise designs, the BDX3200 barely looks more classy than an unbranded device. It's the kind of player you might want to hide away discreetly on your TV stand. The USB port on the front of the Blu-ray player is ideal for hooking up an external storage device from time to time. It supports self-powered hard drives and NTFS-formatted devices. But while the font-facing port is handy, a second USB connection on the back of the player would have made a handy addition for anyone looking to leave a storage solution hooked up permanently without having it hanging off the front of the Blu-ray player. Note too that the BDX3200KE isn't DLNA-compatible.
Toshiba's Blu-ray players have never been cutting-edge affairs, but the company has wholeheartedly embraced 3D. The BDX3200 is its latest 3D-ready effort and with its £150 price tag should appeal to those on a budget – although Sony's BDP-S480 costs the same amount and offers much more in functionality. The BDX3200 is easy on the eye, with slim bodywork (42.5mm high) and a sleek black finish.I had absolutely no trouble using the player, thanks to the uncomplicated menu system and its responsiveness to remote commands. Disc loading times are fairly fast, taking 50 seconds to load Terminator Salvation.It boasts a surprisingly wide range of picture adjustments, grouped as Video Processing and Motion Video Processing. These let you alter the usual parameters, as well as offering presets, noise reduction and tweaks for individual colours. Get the settings spot on and the deck delivers impressive 2D and 3D pictures. The front-mounted USB port provides media playback and supports MKV and DivX HD. The feature set is decidedly lacking. Wi-fi support (built-in or dongle), network streaming, smartphone control, built-in BD Live memory, a second HDMI output and 2D-to-3D conversion are all absent.
