Philips DVP5960 DVD Player Review

sharon, Unbeatable
3 May 2012
  • 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 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.
  • Pros: looks good, plays everything, cheap
  • Cons: Remote Could Be Better

  • Excerpt: After my old, expensive, DVD player decided to die on me I decided to purchase this model as a replacement. I was looking for a basic DVD player, and this is exactly that. Now, I dont meen basic as in not very good, I mean basic as in it is easy to use, and it plays DVDs. Exactly what I was looking for. I love it. As an added bonus it has a USB port on the front of it.
  • Pros: Plays DVD's well .  Nice design .  HDMI .  DVD Upscaling
  • Cons: Wide design .  Might not fit in standard TV cabinet

  • 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.
  • Pros: price, upscaling option, impressive playback features
  • Cons: remote a bit fiddly

Sony DVD player with HDMI output 1080i, DVP5960

IvanBrown, Ciao
6 January 2008
  • Excerpt: I had bought a bush DVD player for HDMI upscaling and it didn't really do anyhting. I exchanged it for the Sony. The upscaling is fantastic, really gives you the HD experience withouth actually having proper HD (althought its not the same as the real stuff). For the price, it is fantastic. All modes of upscaling, progressive scan if you need it, zoom function, 3D virtual sound etc etc, with various modes. I cant fault it.
  • Pros: VERY good upscaling, good price
  • Cons: No clock, remote slow sometimes
