Philips DVR5100

 

Philips' DVR5100 is a capable device for users looking for high definition digital reception and recording functionality. However, its relatively limi...

Simple and easy to use, Effective recording capabilities

Expensive, No way to back up recordings, Limited features, Awkward interface

A pricey option, this is a product that should appeal to users who are only looking for a unit with twin high definition tuners and a hard drive.

Philips DVP5100K/69

 

The Mitashi DIVX-999 supported pretty much everything except WMV and DTS, but does it hold up against the Philips DVP5100K?

Great looking, sleek finish, slot-loading, plays all formats except WMV

Ghosting effect (lens issue?), cant ff/rew in zoom mode, choppiness in certain 23.976 fps encoded video
