Philips DVP3980/05 DVD Player

 

On a budget, but want 1080p upscaling? Philips' DVP3980/05 DVD player could be just the ticket.

For those unable to use HDMI, the deck provides analogue alternatives in the shape of component video output and an RGB-capable SCART. On the audio side, there's a coaxial digital audio output and stereo audio output.

an amazing device

 

The Philips DVP3980 DVD Player caught my eye in a Sunday NY Times J&R advertising because it offered NTSC and PAL playback capability. I have friends in Germany who send me their home videos on DVDs in PAL format and I did not have the capability to...

Buyer Beware

 

Although the newegg site says the warranty is one year, the stuff inside the box says it is 90 days parts & labor. Phillips tried to convince me that this is an industry standard, which I have never heard of on home electronics. They have awful...

Nice remote, slim case, and HDMI outputs

I have owned 2 of these. The first died (completely dead, no response at all) about 4 months after I bought it. It was only then that I found out about their horrible factory warranty. The store where I bought it exchanged it for me out of sympathy....

Consumer review by:

good features but very annoying

 

The model features playback for a variety of formats like AVI. It seems to offer good picture quality. There's a region free hack that's easily accessible through the remote

It turns off after 15 minutes of inactivity ; the configuration setting to disable the sleep feature has no effect. This is incredibly aggravating ; I can't stand this unit and I am getting rid of it because every time I'm interrupted by the phone I...

Its better than regular

 

Because it was free I can not complain about the quality. However If you look into getting a $150 Toshiba DVD up-converter your going to be a lot happier than if you bought this player.

Much better picture than a standard DVD player.

Does not come with an HDMI cable. Picture looks kind of blocky in some fast action scenarios.
