Summary: Bought this DVD player specifically to play photo slideshows, and other footage that needed to play on a continuous loop. Quickly discovered that although the player does have a repeat function, you cannot use it without a small (but noticeable and annoying) icon remaining on the screen. I thought it would fade after a few seconds, but it just sat there while the clip repeated. Not even in the corner, kind of in the upper middle.
Summary: DO NOT buy this product. Bought one on Friday and Saturday the sound was all funky and wouldn't play right. Took it back and exchanged it for the last one on the shelves. Came home plugged it in and it doesn't even work. This product is a piece of JUNK!
Summary: OMG wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. Bought today. I was a bit upset that the video/audio cord wasn't even included in the box. Luckily I had an extra. Unit is very light, not solid. Easy to set up. Used once, good picture, sound, etc. Hoping no issues.
Summary: instructions failed to say that the red indicator is on when the player is off and the light is off when the player is on took me a while to get that figured out. Philips should have been more helpful. I expected the "on" light to be on when the player is on.
Excerpt: Could not get this DVD player to read the Italian PAL system dvds, even after the B&H rep "unlocked" the regions.<br />The remote also did not work well - it could not access certain commands (on two different machines).
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Difficult To Set Up, Difficult To Use
