Philips DVDR5520 review

 

Philips machine offers reasonable recording and playback

5.1 recording ; Good AV ; Funky clickwheel remote

Ponderously unresponsive ; Can’t transfer 5.1 to (compatible) DVD ; No optical input

Some nice features, but there are a few frustrating aspects here which stop us from recommending this deck wholeheartedly

Philips DVDR 5520

 

Depending on which of the six recording modes you choose, up to 180 hours of video cam be crammed onto the HDD. The 5520's USB 2.0 port allows you to copy JPEG, DivX and MP3/WMA files at will between the DVD, HDD and solid-state USB memory devices....

5.1 recording, funky clickwheel remote, strong AV performance

Ponderously unresponsive, 5.1 audio can only be played on the 5520

The clock is very strange as it stays at the time you have closed the DVD player for a very long time and then starts moving. It is NEVER at the correct time and the manual is not very good at explaining how to rectify this problem. Another problem is...

Philips DVDR5520H

 

Menus are easy to use as is the guide+ for selecting TV programmes to record. Silent in use.

Use with a camcorder gave various problems which required resetting. Does not allow connecting an external hardisk and does not allow copying video files to the USB port (even if they come from a camcorder). Fairly slow startup.

Philips DVDR5520H

 

Upscaling picture quality is fantastic- especially when you have a LARGE HDTV. Plays DIVX directly from a USB pen

The EPG was a bit fiddly to sync.
