Philips DVP-5160 Silver

 

Good general performance/features representing good value for money.

Player response time from the remote is slow. Seperate tray open/close button is missing from the remote control Enclosure is larger than might seem necessary

Philips DVP-5160 Silver

 

Plays almost any type of video including standard DVD's with excellent quality. Simple to make player region free. Quick and easy operation. Software is easily updated via the USB connector with updates available from Phillips/third party programmers...

No HDMI connector (Scart only), does not upscale DVD and cannot play High Def Divx/Xvids. USB connector only version 1.1. Poorly encoded Divx/Xvid video can sometimes stutter on playback.

Philips DVP-5160 Silver

 

Plays DivX well. Reads most types of media. USB port on the front for memory sticks. Looks nice.

Slow to startup. Auto-standbys after approx. 5 mins if a movie is paused - not a big problem for watching DVD's, but for DivX files, it means you have to manually FF to continue from where you left off. Doesn't show long filenames.

Philips DVP-5160 Silver

 

Looks great and performs so well. The USB port is why I bought it and it is brilliant - no more burning DVDs - download to a memory stick and pop it in the port and the quality is as good as a disc. The price!!

For the money - None.

The ability to use a USB stick to play AVI / DIVx files is absolutely brilliant and the price is unbeatable.

Not being able to find the remote is a bit of an issue because the buttons on the player are very limited.

Philips DVP-5160 Silver

 

very cheap, plays just about any file type, very quiet, very small, doesn't have a massive remote either

little sluggish when turning on, opening disc draw etc but not much of a problem. Need to check usb flash drive compatibility, I have a 1gb which works fine but it wont read my 2gb haven't worked out why because it doesnt really bother me

Product Specifications

The DVP5160 provides flawless, true-to-life picture quality. Designed to play virtually any type of disk, it delivers an outstanding and immersive movie and music entertainment experience. DivX Ultra combines DivX playback with great features like integrated subtitles, multiple audio languages, multiple tracks and menus into one convenient file format. Multi-format playability allows you to play most file formats for maximum listening and viewing pleasure, including MP3, WMA, JPEG and the popular DivX digital media format. DivX playback enables you to play and share compressed high quality DivX video content beyond your computer. 192KHz sampling enables you to have an accurate representation of the original sound curves. Together with a 24-bit resolution, more information is captured from the original analog sound wave form, giving a much richer audio reproduction. Progressive scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, both fields are written at one time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.
