super value for the price!


All the features I could have hoped for considering the price plus many EXTRAS I didn't even hope for let alone expect. I love it

Well it received a one star rating elsewhere because it doesn't play AVI files so I guess that would count as a con but in my humble opinion not one deserving a bad review and only one star. It would be sort of like wining a really nice door prize and c

A crap DVD Player


It is such a crap player because it doesn't play AVI files at all also it doesn't list the music, photos or videos alphabetically on a USB Flash Drive so I wouldn't waste my money on rubbish like that.

So when you put items on a jump drive and play them on this, does it still play them according to the date the copy finished onto the jump drive, or does it play them as it should play them, in the alphabetical order of the list ; The last time I used...

Pioneer DV-220V-K Upconverting DVD Player - 1080p over HDMI, MP3, DivX and USB for $59


It is difficult to improve on a winning design. The Pioneer DV-220V-K changes a few things to supplement the larger Pioneer DV-420V-K. It lost an S-Video out, but shrunk in size and ...

Price, features, performance, build quality, USB, up to 1080p over HDMI, MP3/WMA, good remote, DivX

Some newer Philips players play DivX better, slightly slow startup
