Philips DVP3520/05


Easy to use. Great sound. Great picture quality. Useful memory function that starts the dvd where you stopped it previously.

The bad point is not about the DVD player itself but that my Tvonics set top box turns both itself the DVD player on and off. Mildly annoying inconvenience that I can't do anything about without buying either a new set top box or a new modern TV, but...

Quality DVD player


Excellent richly coloured picture, good sound. Works easily, no problems at all. I have not asked it to do anything fancy, just play a DVD which it did very well.
