Summary: This player will play nearly all movies except the occasional DVD's that are burned at odd burn rates. If you have made you own DVD's the burn must be lower than 4x to work on this player. There are firmware upgrades that are supposed to resolve this issue from Phillips. Great Zoom feature using the remote.
Summary: This rocks!! Easy to set up, works like a charm. After having it over a year, now, I still haven't had one problem. Plays all my DVDs from Ireland without a hitch. I enjoyed my transaction with the seller, also. Very quick response to email, and amazingly fast delivery. Highly recommend this one.
Summary: Had this DVD player for a year and watched about 5 movies a month when the audio outputs stopped delivering sound. Phillips used to make great equipment, this DVD player is junk. Save yourself some money and buy the "El Cheapo" DVD player for $30.00. The cheapies last longer and they're made in the same place as the high end models with the same materials and lack of quality.
Summary: I have to admit I am impressed by the negative comments I have read about this product. Yuo all must have received a defective unit or just got unlucky with it. I got this DVD at JC Penney on sale for $29.95 in August 2006 because I needed a new cheap DVD player with progressive scan. Then I come to find out that this DVD player has both NTSC and PAL which is great for me that I watch movies from Italy.
Summary: I have owned this dvd player for less than a year, worked fine everytime. then all of the sudden played a dvd worked fine, put in another one and said bad disk. tried about 10 different dvds over the course of 3 days, one dvd worked for about 10 minutes and then time after time bad disk. well have you ever seen the copy machine scene in office space..... thats what happened to this pos.
Summary: I bought this dvd player mainly for use with with non U.S. region music dvd's. i have played discs from Japan and Europe, as well as standard U.S. discs and all have played great. Highly recommend for anyone who is mainly a music buff as I am. Excellent picture quality! Player serves it's purpose perfectly!
