Straightforward basic DVD player with an intuitive interface.


I came across my Philips Magnavox DVD825AT (the "825") at a recycling center a few weeks ago. My machine was well-worn (roughed up front control panel, missing DVD door decoration, missing headphone volume knob, even missing feet) and I was itching ...

Played every disc it was capable of playing

Lacks component video output jacks

Why is this the one for you? Let me explain...


My husband and I previously owned a 13" TV/VCR combo that had literally been around the block and was starting to eat all our VHS tapes. At about the same time (as Murphy's Law seems to dictate), our CD player hit the fan and we were out of luck as...

Philips DVD825AT Player


I have recently had the time and great opportunity to check out this DVD player from Phillips. DVD's are certainly becoming the wave of the future and I personally have noticed a great deal of quality features that they provide over traditional VCR's....

Do You Like It Hot ?!


Hot from the factory comes the Phillips DVD825AT, sporting enough sizzle and pazazz to thrill any home movie fanatic. After observing the quality of the player at Rex TVs and Appliances, a local audio video store about 30 mins away from where I live,...

Truly Incredible Image Quality and Superb Sound Reproduction !!

None, It pulls you in by the eyeballs and throat and doesn't let you go until the action stops !!

The DVD for the electronic impaired


Philips has always been good to me in the electronic field. They are both customer friendly and the make excellent working products. The DVD 825 is another beautiful example of their quality.

Easy setup and use

Minor problems when DVD is scratched

A DVD Player For the Masses


I was looking to get into the DVD game and was somewhat short on cash. I found the answer to my problem with this item.

Essential features, reasonable price

Remote control somewhat unintuitive

Killer Unit, Killer Price!


I've never been a big Philips/Magnavox fan, but the 825AT DVD player has totally changed my mind. The picture is clear and crisp w/ the s-video and composite jacks, but it does lack component output...(what do you expect for $199). The onscreen menus...

Great picture, flawless performance, unbeatable price!

Confusing audio CD menu, Remote is a bit lacking....

Worth every penny


While this model normally retails for about $250, I managed to pick it up on sale at Best Buy for only $195. Even at full price, it's worth every penny.

DVD - Take the plunge?


My wife and I had been kicking it back and forth for quite some time. "DVD's are a fad. They're evil. It'll never catch on. Same way that the 12" video disc player I have is now a large paperweight in my basement."

Fantastic sound, easy scene access, etc.

Have to watch the commercials, don't get a scratch or it skips BAD!

Gotta Love this Technology!!


I bought my first DVD player last week, and have been wanting one for a long time. I have waited for the prices to come down, and sure enough they have finally gotten to the point where they are well worth the price.

Perfect Picture and Sound, no rewinding needed

Cannot record as of yet
