Philips DVP5140 DVD Player Review and Prices


With great disc compatibility, an attractive slim design and PAL and NTSC playback, the Philips DVP5140 DVD player is a functional and attractive addition to any home theater setup. With an MSRP of $50, this single-disc DVD player is also inexpensive...

Really, Really, REALLY Annoying


The older Phillips DVD players didn't do this. It's just stunning that these newer models would go so far backwards in basic functionality. It might seem that this problem isn't worth giving the player a "1 Egg" rating but trust me, this flaw gets...

Plays all the media advertised and then some. A little slow loading but responsive once running

As mentioned, the remote field is very narrow. But, the real reason this DVD player is all but worthless is because if you pause a DVD to go do something, the screen saver comes on: ok, fine -- but around 10 minutes later, the unit goes into standby,...

Performance & Price NICE


Unit has basic features + a few more like preset picture and sound settings.

So far it's played everything that I've thrown at it, including AVI & FLV (youtube) formats.

As indicated by other users, the remote has very little range. However, this can be amended with a universal remote

if you're looking for a cheapo dvd player. you're looking in the wrong place. i have never had a problem with philips products untill this dvd player. other people also seem to have the remote issue... which would be solved by a universal remote.......

it looks nice.... it's low profile.... plays divx.....

well the remote is about the worse thing ever. it seems as if every button on the remote AND on the dvd player you have to press multiple times to get to work. and also very recently i get these "snowy" looking bars at the top and bottom of the screen...

Great produce


NewEgg shipping got in here in 48 hours. Gotta love it!

This product works perfectly as advertised.

It doesn't play some Xvid files, but it doesn't advertise that is plays any, so not totally a con.

Great player


Videos are clear and fit the screen.

This will play most any computer video file like avi and DiVX files.

remote is a little picky on aim. No S-Video!

Works great


I bought this for a customer with no experience in these type of products at all. He figured it it out and lives it.

Divx, Xvid support, ease of use.

Pretty Awesome for the price


Great piece of equipment, well worth the money, plays a huge range of formats.

Plays everything I throw at it. Divx, Avi, pics, you name it.

Tray is shallow, make sure the disc is in right.
