Philips DVP3380 DVD Player

 

If you do not have an HDTV you can still enjoy this DVD player using the component video or SCART outputs. This will allow you to view all of the various compatible media types on virtually any television, but leaves you free to make the upgrade to HD...

Philips DVD Player DVP3380-05

 

It has an HDMI interface so it will plug straight into the back of your HDTV and allow for digital sound and images to stream with clarity to the display. All of the standard HD resolutions, including full HD 1080p, are supported.

Philips DVDR3380

 

No need for finalising DVD-RW discs; it finalises them automatically after each recording.

Does not display the time when the unit is turned on.

Philips DVDR3380

 

Great for playing DVDs

Came with a dent. Does not work well when recording programs. When watching a recorded program, it becomes pixely and stops playing.

Philips DVDR3380

 

It takes forever for the door to open so that you can insert a DVD, and also the sound when you are watching a film goes up and down all the time. We are considering returning the product.
