very easy to set up. massive sound output for such a small unit. ideal if you havent got much space.

external inputs are on the front which looks messy if you want a permenant external source. ie my Digital tv.

Consumer review (reevoo.com)

Philips MCD288

 

Really good sound and picture quality on the dvd player. Love the design of it, I like the way the front part slides down to reveal the buttons.

The control for the cd player unfortunately broke within weeks of buying it which was a bit of a pain, some of the buttons refused to work, however, you can still play the cd player using the buttons on the cd player.
