Ive been using this item for a while and i got no problem so far

-Plays DivX
-Broke after two weeks
I got this as a gift for my mom. Worked for a couple of weeks and then it stopped reading everything, pressed dvds, DVD+R, DVD-DL. Waiting to send it to a local service center for exchange. I am hoping I just got lemon and the next one will work.

Experience: 4 Months

Cheap price, Read all kind of movie
None so far
I bought this dvd player because he was thin, cheap price and because he can read all type of movie(divx etc) I would purchase again

Plays practically all video formats I have tried
Nice appearance
Great Price
Excellent DVD player, it plays everything I throw at it. Looks great. Remote could be a little nicer but overall I am very pleased with it. Highly recommended. I have since bought another one to give to someone for Christmas.

Plays MP3, Divx & Avid AVI, PAL and NTSC video, and displays JPG files.
None, when using SDTV.
It's exactly what I was looking for. Because it plays Xvid and DivX and PAL video, it's a must-have when downloading video. Also, using VirtualDub software on your PC, you can easily convert almost any video to DivX/Xvid and play it on this unit.

The remote does seem to work better if you point it up at the ceiling rather than right at the unit because there's a little plastic overhang right above the LED emitters, but I've not experienced the problems with it that other reviewers have.

Those looking for HDMI or other, fancier video output options should probably look at higher end players, but for $60 (on sale), this was a heckuva buy Brownie. Highly recommended.

Plays everything great
remote sucks
doesn't play high def video clips-can't even scale down
This is without doubt the best player I have ever used. It plays data dvds saving you loads of time. Lipsync is perfect even with videos written at high speeds. Would recommend.

Experience: 6 Months
Excellent Compatibility with Video Formats
'Budget' Design
Weak Sound Output Quality
Cheap Remote
Got this on sale for my brother. Heck of a deal at the time for a DivX player that plays everything I've thrown at it so far. Excellent compatibility with common video formats; much better than I've seen with other DivX players. Phillips seems to be ahead of the curve in this department. Also you can set it to region free fairly easily like most DVD players.

The cons would be the output quality. This isn't a hi-def player, and you're going to notice the sound is off on your sound system a bit. The remote is also horrible, cheap basic fare, that has a very narrow sensor field of effectiveness.

cannot play HP DVD-R, Optodisc generic
It worked good for the first 4 months. Then it started to be picky about discs even for those branded verbatim -R 8x and fuji 16x. I never put dirty disc into the tray. All those discs are good to both of my optical drives and old dvd players.

btw, i always burned at 12x for 16x disc and 8x for 8x disc.

i went to philips site and upgraded the firmware
not much help either.

ONE STAR for me

- Plays all formats
- All functions you would expect
-Slim, sleek design
Nothing so far
This does exactly what I bought it for: plays DivX stuff that had previously been relagated to my PC. You can fast forward them, see a menu screen of the files, etc. Very impressed so far, can't wait to get my new Aquos LCD to check out the progressive scan capabilities!

-Plays NTSC and PAL flawlessly
-Plays Divx and Xvid
-Easily hacked to regionless
-32x fast forwarding
-Decent Brand Name
-Digital Coax out
-Remote is garbage
-Will shutdown faster than most dvd players while paused
-No optical out
Im happy with the player because it plays PAL and NTSC which is why i bought it. Once regionless it can play any dvd format under the sun. The only drawback in my opinion is the remote, it is garbage. Half the time it does nothing when u press a button, and it only has a limited number of buttons to start with.

I would recommend it to anyone else looking for PAL or Divx support.
