Great DVD by Philips

vinodgm, Ciao
15 December 2001
  • Excerpt: As with most of the electronic and other devices I possess, I am always quite pleased with my instincts when it comes to buying the right product and at the right price. My new acquisition the Philips DVD711 DVD Player is no exception. At just £189 this beauty is pure value for money.
  • Pros: Very reasonably priced, Has many features that exist in more expensive models, High quality product
  • Cons: Odd remote, Only in silver

  • Excerpt: After hearing many horror stories about Philips' CD players, I was very hesitant to buy this DVD player. But after having it for a couple of weeks, I must say the Dutch electronics giant delivered a very overall pleasing player at a very competitive price.
  • Pros: easy to use,  quality of build is high
  • Cons: design flaw with sound

An excellent player for under 200 pounds

Farside, Ciao
13 February 2001
  • Excerpt: I was badgered into getting a DVD player mostly by my kids, so I set them a challenge: If you can find a DVD that will play not only DVD/CD but CD re-writeables for under £200 then we'll get one. I sat back smugly waiting for them to draw a blank. Luckily they found the 711.
  • Pros: Dual laser which will play ANY discs
  • Cons: None found yet

Top Class, Budget DVD Player.

Vofka, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Considering this Player costs under £200 in most stores, it is positively packed with features. It is simple to install and configure, and a dream to use. The DVD-711 is among the few 'budget' DVD Players to have two SCART sockets, a feature which many other sub-£200 players lack.
  • Pros: Excellent Quality, Functionality and Price
  • Cons: Runs a little Hot

  • Excerpt: I thought long and hard before I purchased this DVD player from PHILIPS. I weighed up all the pros and cons and the ins and outs and the advantages and disadvantages.I didnt just go for the cheapest machine either...for that would have been the easy way out.
  • Pros: Sleek and 'virtually silent' during use .  .  . too many features to mention
  • Cons: It would be unfair of me to say anything bad !

  • Excerpt: Unlike most reviewers who are pleased with Phillips, I was dissapointed with this DVD player. The remote is awful and lacks fuctionality - it doesn't even open the DVD tray!!!!! This is a shame because the actual unit looks pretty good, and unlike many DVD players, it has two scart sockets allowing...
  • Pros: Good make, Looks good
  • Cons: Poor remote control, lacking looks and features

Classy Performer !

  • Excerpt: This is the new Phillips DVD player to replace the clunky old 710 that had the drive noise fault. It looks far better and the drive is centre mounted. The graphics menu is updated to that of the 750 and includes 3D Surround Sound from just two speakers.
  • Pros: Zoom, Good Looking, Digital & Optical Outs
  • Cons: Remote Control Too Small
