Great for avi and mpg videos, plus NTSC *and* PAL


Truly unique player, and great price! I did a lot of searching, and could find *no* other DVD players that could play .avi and .mpg (and .mpeg) files, *and* play both NTSC and PAL DVDs -- for such a great price! I am *very* picky, and I just could not ...

1. Play avi & mpg files on data discs2. Play NTSC *and* PAL DVDs.

Doesn't *resume* play on video files on data discs - only with regular DVD discs.

Will meet low expectations.


This is our secondary DVD player, purchased on sale at one of the Big Box stores without much thought. I can't say it's the best or worst player I have ever had. It's fair in picture and fair in sound, but you wouldn't buy this low end a model if you ...

Easy to use. Small footprint.

no fast fwd, return. Problems with damaged disks.

Player has difficulty playing even slightly scratched discs


I purchased this player about a year and half ago based on it's low price and listed format compatibilities. Over the time I have used I have had a number or issues with it. The biggest issue is that is has difficulty playing even slightly scratched ...

Cheap price, slim design, name brand.

Difficulty and often can't play scratched discs, poor remote, long power on tray open.

DivX is a new feature for DVD players, so I was worried that it would have compatibility issues. Some early mp3 players that I bought were finicky about which mp3 files they would play. That doesn't seem to be an issue here. The player works fine with ...

DivX support works flawlessly.

Long power-on time. Few console buttons. Disc can jam in shallow tray.

Worth the price


excellent picture, good price, region hack, better remote, functionality.

Limited connectivity, slow operation, tired silver design.

Super-handy 'resume' feature


All the usual, plus the 'resume' feature

Very few. I wish it were black instead of silver.

Nice little DVD player


I picked up a Phillips DVDP3040 at a local Best Buy for $29 this weekend. I was specifically looking for an inexpensive DVD player that plays DivX encoded videos. I've begun to accumulate them and am getting tired of just viewing them on my computer or...

Great inexpensive little DVD player plays DivX

Limited options for A/V outputs. Small remote, some buttons not labeled clearly.
