  • Summary: This is the second dvd player bought. I purshased as a christmas gift for my sister she never opened it until April. When my daughter tryied to turn it on it was dead wouldn't work. Thank god I purchased the warranty on it. She recieved it 2 weeks ago and it is working. I would recommened, if your thinking about getting this get the warranty. Also they don't tell you the warranty is only good 1 time, but they do you give you 10% on the new one.

  • Summary: I got my unit quickly and I have been enjoying it without any problems. The Philips DVP5990 plays every DVD/CD format I have tried and the picture and sound are great. My wife is from Bali, Indonesia and she has a lot of VCDs from home that most DVD players can't play but the Philips DVP5990 sails right through them. The remote was brand new!

Whats Not to like

27 March 2010
  • Summary: Simply does what its supposed to do. HDMI works fine with my Sony receiver, plays DVDs when needed, as well as my thumb drive with other types of videos as well It even plays all types of region code dvds (only with a very easy modification, courtesy of youtube) which is the main reason I got this particular model. ) What more can I ask for a DVD player especially one at this price. My only advice would be try and buy it new not used or refurbished Enjoy.

  • Summary: DVD player works great, was easy to hook an external hard drive to. Player only came with a red/white audio cable, no video cable was included, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Bad product

19 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product after reading the reviews and checking many others. My main interest was the multi-zone feature to watch movies purchased outside the US. After watching 2 movies, it stopped working. It stops after 20 minutes, freezes and then does not read the DVD.Philips did not do a good job refurbishing. I didn't return it on time as my husband threw away the box when it worked the first couple of times and now, I don't want to even bother. Very dissapointing.
