Lexicon BD-30 Blu-ray player promises future-proofing via USB


I guess this should be reassuring if you have the coin to afford one of the Lexicon Blu-ray players. Personally I find it insulting that it would not exist before, as then what would users be forced to do if new Blu-ray standards came out? Throw it away or send it in…ugh!



As well as playing Blu-ray, BD-Live, BonusView, DVD, upscaled DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and CD content, the BD-30 has a USB port which Lexicon suggest will “enable access to future formats”. Now to us, that sounds more like loading media onto a memory key and using the BD-30 as a very shiny mediaplayer, something a whole lot of other decks will do, but we’ll let them have their fun.
