Philips DVP5980 review

 

If you're not yet ready to stump up for a proper hi-def disc player then the next best thing is a DVD deck with 1080p upscaling. Just a year ago this feature was only found on high-end players, but the £80 DVP5980 proves that this is no longer the case

Imressive connectivity ; Wide range of audio modes ; Good erformance for the rice

Annoying disc search oeration

Impressive connectivity, Wide range of audio modes, Good performance for the price

Annoying disc search operation

One of the UK's cheapest 1080p DVD decks offers excellent picture and sound quality plus a very handy USB port

Ability to use USB port to play mp3 music files from memory stick, thus doing away with the need to change CDs

It is an unusually wide DVD player. It fits our situation, but is worth checking before ordering
