Excerpt: Can't give it a zero. Player was defective out of the box. Never loaded a disc after the third or fourth effort. The first couple of tries, a movie would begin, and the in the middle it would try to reload and start over. The fast forward search feature was useless.... Not applicable, and after a SHORT time it would NOT even load a disc. Obviously, the durability is suspect. Philips is aware of the problems, or they are in outer space.
Excerpt: This is a great DVD Player. It is cheap and good quality. It will play most of your files, it even plays .avi files, which is great if you're from a foreign country and like to watch your movies in the .avi format. Slick and simple design is very user friendly.
Excerpt: we have two of these and really enjoy them...they are a great deal for your money. we have had two previously to these but have given them away because we moved..silly us! but when we went to buy again we went right back to them bacause they are a great value for your money...so buy now and don't regret your choice on a cheaper one that has no features.
Excerpt: We received this as a Christmas gift. I'm not very patient when it comes to programming or adding cords to our tv but this was easy. It plays well and has never skipped. It is also very lighweight and slim so it fits neatly in out entertainment center.

Excerpt: This is a review for a phillips dvp642 dvd player. The reason i got this was it would play multipe media foramts liek divx movies of copied you made of your dvds. It has a zoom function so peopel that have regualr SDTVs and not widescreens can make the dvd fill full screen. It doesn;t always work though it zooms in but either nto enough or too much. This dvd player does have progressive scan if peopel are interested in that feature. The remote is ok but not great.
