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,...

Great player

 

Really awesome DivX player for a pretty good price. Has played pretty much anything I've thrown at it.

None I can think of.

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

Basic

 

Does what it is supposed to do.

Price

Remote is poorly thought out.

Consumer review by:

mediocre

 

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.

Consumer review by:

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!
