Excerpt: A few years back, I had recently purchased a high definitilon plasma television. I did not have the money to upgrade to blu-ray(or HD DVD that was popular at the time), so I began looking into DVD players that would up-convert the quality to a higher level than standard definition. So, I found this DVD players and liked the cost. Another of the great benefits was the USB drive.
Excerpt: This was the second Philips DVD player I bought. I got it because it can play not only play, but upconvert DVDs, but it can also play AVI files off of CD, DVD, and through USB. I have a degree in video production and wanted a DVD player I could check to see what files looked like on TV, since they look different than on a computer screen. All I have to do is put my AVI onto a USB flash drive, plug into the Philips, and it will play.
Excerpt: The DVP5960 is one of the best budget upconverting dvd player out on the market. This was my main player before all the hddvd and blueray hoopla. The DVP5960 play pretty much everything one could throw at it, mp3, dvd r +/-, mpeg/mpg, avi (divx, xvid), wmv and I am pretty sure I am missing something else. For $50, you cannot ask for more. More however, is what this beast give you.
Enhances movie quality on HD tv set but doesn't play HD DVDs
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We just purchased this HDMI DVD player without knowing what is needed to play HD DVDs. HDMI players do NOT play HD DVDs (that's what we get for not researching). That being said, it was fairly inexplensive (retail ~$75, paid ~$55) and it does enhance the video quality of regular DVDs on our HD TV. The HDMI cable is not included-I think it is a separate purchase for all HDMI players and not all HD TVs have the needed connection so research before you buy.
Excerpt: This DVD player is the best stand alone DVD player in my opinion. It has a great range of media that can be played. The picture is good when plugged in with component cables. Its sleek, thin, lightweight design make it that much better.
Excerpt: I have purchased this DVD player recently. Its amazing. It works for me any thing. Picture clarity is very good. And sound quality is awesome. cool DVD player for low price. Any one can buy it. The model is very slim and easy to carry and use.
