Excerpt: its my own fault - what do you expect when its cheap ? mmmm lets see for it to even sort of work ? at first it was great -- but after a couple of months its down to --bad disk -- the only thing it plays is music. i have bought brand new disks and still its bad disk -- im going to throw it out the window and hope anyone thinking of buying this model should really wait a while until they can buy a better one - the worse thing ihave ever bought EVER
Why does the handset have no 'eject' button? So you'll buy a replacement, or what?

Excerpt: The Philips DVP 5960 player was an 'emergency' DVD-player purchase I made in 2007. My parents, with whom I was due to be spending a fortnight's stay that summer, didn't use their old DVD player which had broken down, and at the time I was in the habit of parking my young daughter in front of the telly to gain a few moments respite - as a result of which she had become somewhat addicted to her various DVDs.
Excerpt: I bought the Philips DVE5960 in Aug 2007 and have had no trouble with it. This sleek, slim, silver DVD player takes up minimal space although it is a bit wider than some other players. It is quite easy to connect and has a USB port as well as HDMI, which enables connection to your computer. This model plays most dvds, since it plays DVD + R, DVD -R, DVD + R/W, DVD - R/W. It can also play pricture CDs (CD-R, CD-R/W).
Excerpt: I bought this dvd player after my last one broke. The Phillips DVP 5960 is very reliable! Especially compared to the last one which let me down on numerous occasions. The time taken for the DVD to load doesn't seem to be anything special just rather standard but still does the job and does it well. I haven't really noticed much difference in the display pr sound which it claims is "HDMI".
Excerpt: I've had this dvd/divx player for a while now and would recommend it to anyone I've had no problems playing any variation of xvid/avi/divx or mpeg file either on disc or via the usb port Firmware upgrades are available via the Philips website Anyone buying this model I recommend you 'google' for a site called phunkyfish - there's a lot of useful information on there about this player and some non-philips firmware packs which may be useful if you play divx.
Excerpt: I have had this DVD player for about a year now and, overall, I have to say that I am very pleased with it. Firstly with regards to its looks, it looks good! It is a silver unit with a black front and a red standby button on the bottom left of the player. The buttons on the front are very basic: it only has 5 button, a USB port and the tray. On the back, you get the usual connections that are expected including, obviously, an HDMI port.
Excerpt: With the increasing influence of High Definition and more and more products lining our shelves the demand is now catching up with the technology and budget DVD players with impressive HD upscaling are a cost effective option if you want to grab a piece of the action and enjoy an altogether better audio visual experience. With an attractive price tag the Philips DVP 5960 boasts a range of features you would expect from a player twice the price.
Excerpt: The Philips DVP5960 is a top player which will suffice for most people looking for an affordable but advanced DVD player. There is a growing trend for DVD recorders and these will slowly replace VHS Recorders. However this DVD doesn't have the capability and thus is catered to a different market.
