Philips DVP5960/37

Relatively inexpensive; HDMI upconversion to 720p, 576p, and 1080i; DivX compatibility with decent playback performance; mostly solid video quality; front USB port for digital photos and music; ultraslim styling.

Annoying shift bug causes some black bars on movies; 576p mode is close to unwatchable; no S-Video output.

The Philips DVP5960/37 HDMI-upscaling DVD player is an excellent choice for budget-conscious HDTV owners and multimedia aficionados, and its DivX playback is a nice bonus.

Philips DVP5960 DVD Player Review and Prices

 

We are hard-pressed to think of a budget DVD player that offers more for less than the Philips DVP5960. This single-disc unit is neatly designed, with a sleek finish and slender construction, standing just 1-1/2 inches high. It may not have the...

HDMI up-conversion of DVD, USB port, DivX-compatible, slim and stylish design

No DTS support, no S-video output, poorly designed remote control, buggy JPEG browser functions

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very good value

 

Very inexpensive with plenty of bells and whistles given the low price point. I would recommend for someone looking for a solid DVD player at a low cost

None that I observed

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Value

 

If you don't have 1080p, then this is the DVD player for you.

The upconvert to 1080i is flawless. My old DVD collection looks great on my new LCD. The USB port is a bonus

Small Remote. The menu for the USB cuts off the file names

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Awesome

 

Great quality and performance. Easy to navigate menu

Always starts on HDMI Upgade mode. Some videos, like those burned at low bitraes, do not look very good at this resolution. Remote sucks

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Buy!!

 

USB port works flawlessly. I only have 1080i so this works for my situation perfectly

1080i and not 1080p
