Really, Really, REALLY Annoying

Paul L., Newegg
21 March 2009
  • Summary: The older Phillips DVD players didn't do this. It's just stunning that these newer models would go so far backwards in basic functionality. It might seem that this problem isn't worth giving the player a "1 Egg" rating but trust me, this flaw gets really old, really quickly.
  • Pros: Plays all the media advertised and then some. A little slow loading but responsive once running.
  • Cons: As mentioned, the remote field is very narrow. But, the real reason this DVD player is all but worthless is because if you pause a DVD to go do something, the screen saver comes on: ok, fine -- but around 10 minutes later, the unit goes into standby, completely forgetting where you were in the mo...

  • Summary: if you're looking for a cheapo dvd player. you're looking in the wrong place. i have never had a problem with philips products untill this dvd player. other people also seem to have the remote issue... which would be solved by a universal remote....
  • Pros: it looks nice.... it's low profile.... plays divx.....
  • Cons: well the remote is about the worse thing ever. it seems as if every button on the remote AND on the dvd player you have to press multiple times to get to work. and also very recently i get these "snowy" looking bars at the top and bottom of the screen blocking about 10% of the screen... not the w...
