3 out of 5 eggsDon't upgrade the firmware unless you have read how

Pros: Worked great playing almost every format when burned to disk. Upconversion did appear to improve the quality. Excellent value. Newegg had fast shipping as usual.

Cons: Stuttered a bit on fast action scenes when played from USB sticks and fast forward was horrible from sticks with max 3x speed. Never tried it with an HDD but had finally gotten a small drive FAT formatted to use but never got to try it. Following Philips' instructions to update the firmware it totally died, never to be revived again. Calling Philips the last couple of days for tech support and the division that handles DVD players is not available.

Other Thoughts: After getting a TV with an HDMI input and watching only one movie on it, I decided to upgrade the firmware if for no other reason than to get it to have HDMI audio activated by default. Following the instructions to do so exactly (using two files in the zip file of the upgrade) resulted in a dead player - completely dead with not even the "standby" light on when it is plugged in. Be sure you read in forums which file to include for your player and don't use both of them as Philips instructs.

4 out of 5 eggsGood DVD Player for multi-Format

Pros: Plays anything thrown at it so far except mkv files.

Cons: USB flash drives are limited to 4 GIG per Phillips support.

Other Thoughts: I wish the USB limitation was listed in the operator's manual or online so I wouldn't have bought a 16 gig stick that wouldn't work.

5 out of 5 eggsDoing Philips Proud

Pros: The upconversion is great on 480 DVDs to a 50" plasma. DivX playback hasn't failed yet for me. The USB feature has been great -- can copy an HD episode of a show I missed to my thumbdrive quickly for no-hassle viewing without wasting a DVD. Thin, low-profile design of the unit is very good.

Cons: Same things others have mentioned... The tray has a cheap feel to it and the remote is weak. You have to aim directly at the player for it to work reliably.

Other Thoughts: In reading these reviews, you'll see MANY complaints about the menus not supporting long filenames. Yes, this can be a hassle, but one that's easily remedied by downloading File Renamer Basic (freeware) and batch-renaming your files. So the guy below that mentions his "Battlestar.Galactica.HDTV.S01E12.avi" names were being truncated would be much better off with his whole BSG collection renamed to "Battlestar 112" and "Battlestar 409" and so on. In other words, sometimes a problem just leads you to a solution that creates a better status quo. The 16 characters the menu does display is more than enough.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: HDMI upconversion, sharp dvd playback, USB port

Cons: Slow load/response time, jpg files don't display properly: see below

Other Thoughts: The feature that really sold me on this dvd player was the usb port which allows playback of music, movies and jpg images. Movie playback via the usb port works perfectly, but I have been unable to view jpg images from the usb port. I am able to see an image preview but when I select the image to view the screen flickers for a bit showing a broken up image and then returns to the preview screen. The instruction manual says images that are too high/low resolution may not display properly. I have experimented with various image resolutions and file sizes but have not been able to get any jpg images to display properly.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but...

Pros: I shopped around a little for good upscaling DVD players and this was the best that I could find despite some of the negative reviews. It does what it's supposed to. It looks really nice, but... (see cons)

Cons: Either I don't know what I'm doing or there's something weird with the player. I don't know if you're allowed to plug in both composite a/v cables along with the HDMI cable (because the TV is hooked up to a cable box that doesn't have an HDMI slot, then hooked up to a seperate home audio theater), but sometimes the picture is warped or buggy around the bottom half. I don't know, this could be only my problem.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plays DIVIX files right off USB as long as the compression isn't to high, about 1.5 gig for a regular movie, above that and the built in decoder starts to skip frames

Cons: Only plays Divix and jpeg, can't get it to display higher then 480 with HDMI, although my Samsung 52" A750 does a fine job upconverting on it's own

Other Thoughts: clunky remote, but works

4 out of 5 eggsNice USB player

Pros: This is a pretty nice player for the money. Plays regular DVDs, AVI files from disc or USB, also MP3s and JPEGs as well. I have been using a laptop to meet this demand before. MUCH easier to just copy a movie off to a flash drive and toss it in the DVD player. Very user friendly, the wife loves it.

Cons: The remote is pretty bad, its clunky at best, and doesn't usually work most of the time.

The menu looks sort of like something you would see on an 8-bit NES, very home made feel to it. Also, no long file name support. Not a big deal, just flashes you back to DOS days where everything is shortened to 7 characters.

It doesn't scale very well with divx files, sort of grainy. Seems to work better if you set it to a resolution and have your HD set do the upscale for you.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this unit overall to someone that is looking for an inexpensive solution to playing divx files on the fly without having to fool with a disc. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, my only real beef is with the weak remote. (that isn't really the DVD player though)
