Enjoy compact quality and format flexibility with the Philips 20DV693R TV/DVD combination unit. The 20-inch set plays DVDs, CDs, and MP3 CDs, letting you enjoy the best movies and music right from one device. The set's Real Flat picture tube increases viable viewing angles while reducing reflected ambient light to create a brighter and crisper image. The 20DV693R's digital comb filter removes blurred edges between colors and reduces dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped t-shirt).

A shadow mask is a thin sheet of perforated metal behind the screen that restricts electron flow, each hole in the sheet corresponding to a single pixel. An Invar mask uses an alloy that's especially resistant to the high temperatures generated by the electron beam, allowing in a brighter, clearer picture.

A hallmark of the set, its QuadraSurf remote control lets you personalize and customize your channel surfing and TV viewing by family member or program theme. QuadraSurf delivers your favorite television shows at the press of a button.

A component-video input grants optimum connection with a compatible DVD player, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate all DVD players. You can choose between a set of rear AV inputs and a set of side AV inputs for extra convenience.

Other 20DV693R features include a 240-minute sleep timer, AutoPicture (which optimizes brightness, contrast, color, tint, and sharpness), AutoLock (which uses V-Chip technology for parental control), and AutoSound (which lets you select settings for voice, music, movies, or custom). Incredible Surround simulates surround sound from the set's two speakers, while bass and treble controls let you adjust the sound to your taste. A side-panel headphone jack affords private listening.

3-0 out of 5 stars Philips 20" Flatscreen/DVD Combo
I received my Philips 20" TV as a service award from work. My kids enjoyed watching DVD movies on it for about one month. We also enjoyed listening to CDs. Now, after only one month of using, the DVD no longer works and I have to haul it to a service center for repair! :-(

5-0 out of 5 stars Imperssed
I'v only had this YV for about a week but I'm veary happy I got it. the reason I got this one is because Philips TVs last along time and there always ahead of the game with there other set is made by philips,still going strong and I hade it six years wihtout one problem.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great TV set
I'd been holding off on buying a second television set until I felt the technology I wanted had become a bit less expensive. What a pleasure it was to find a television set that not only met this criteria but offered better than expected picture and sound.

This set sounds and looks great. I easily hooked it up to a three speaker system and have been enjoying dvds, cds, etc. Again, this is a great second television; I highly recommend this product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love my TiVo
NOTICE: This review relates to TiVo, not this specific hardware device. I have a Sony SAT-T60 DirecTV/TiVo combination receiver.
My wife and I became addicted to TiVo within 1 month after installing it. We have gone from watching 90% live TV/10% recorded (VCR) to 90% Tivo/10% live TV! We hardly watch anything anymore at its regular time. We simply pull up the "Now Playing" menu, which lists all the shows I have previously recorded, and watch whatever we're in the mood for - drama (Law and Order or Once and Again), comedy (Friends, South Park), reality TV (Survivor, Fear Factor), or sports (Illinois basketball, cliff diving).

There are so many cool things about TiVo, but these are my THREE FAVORITE things:
1) Season Pass, which once you set it up, allows you to record a particular show EVERY time it's on or all shows with a particular actor or subject,
2) Easy to record (simply choose the show, not the time and channel) and easy to find and play (scroll through "Now Playing" list of prerecorded shows and choose "Select" to play),
3) Record two shows at once (like Survivor and Friends, which both start at 8:00 on Thursday) with a DirecTV/TiVo combination receiver, which we have.

We started with the monthly subscription and moved to the lifetime after just a month (it's good for the life of the box, not you). We have a Sony model, and I've found Sony to always be reliable (two TVs, one VCR). I bought a 4-year warranty as a safety precaution (new technology and insurance against the lifetime subscription). DirecTV customer service is decent, but not great (they handle the TiVo side as well). The BEST resource for TiVo is the TiVo AVS forum, which you can link to from the Buzz section of the TiVo Web site. It's a "must read" prior to buying this unit. But I am not exaggerating when I say that this is the coolest, most liberating invention to come out since the World Wide Web. No joke! You will fall in love with your TiVo too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Believe the hype -- it will change the way your watch TV!
No more scheduling your time around TV programs! A friend had gotten his months earlier, and I didn't believe what he was saying. Finally when I needed a VCR replacement, I decided to get the HDR212. This is an amazing product.

I've had mine for over a year now, and I simply cannot imagine watching TV again without it. Pause when you have to run into the kitchen, or tend to something else at home. I normally start watching TV about 20 minutes after a program has started just so I can FF through commercials. $[money] a month for the TiVo service is worth the money. The TiVo guide is easy to use, and beats trying to grab a TV Guide or the newspaper to figure out when your program is on, and the season pass is just extremely convenient. This is the way TV was meant to be -- arranged around _our_ time.

1. Watching TV again _without_ TiVo is a real pain!
2. Phillips warranty is pathetic -- 90 days parts & labor... beyond that, $[money] for a repair.
3. 6+ hours at Best quality (20 hours... yeah, whatever...) isn't enough. If you travel all week, by the time you get home, something's bound to have been erased. No problem though -- I bought an 80GB HD and upgraded the TiVo myself, and now I have 31 hours at best quality! (Check out the TiVo Hinsdale How-To guide on how to upgrade your TiVo). On the positive(?) side, my cable provider's quality is [bad] enough, that I often couldn't tell the difference between Best quality (6+ hours), and High quality (9+ hours) using the original (before upgrade) TiVo capacity.

Now, if only TiVo could do something about the [bad] service from my cable provider! My building doesn't allow external antennas, unfortunately ...

5-0 out of 5 stars You have to have this.
If you're even bothering to VISIT this site, you are a person that needs Tivo. I bought our Tivo two years ago, and it has transformed our lives. Seriously. We never, ever bother to rush home to avoid missing Friends. We never pick up a TV Guide. We never miss new episodes of Trading Spaces or Modern Marvels. Sopranos? Got it. Sex and the City? We've seen every one.

The funniest thing about having Tivo is that it changes your television conversations with others... I might tell someone about a cool new show (something Tivo selected FOR me that I wound up liking, for example), and the person will ask, "What channel is it on?"

I have no clue.

"Well, WHEN is it on?"

No idea. Tivo takes care of everything! I watch WHAT I want WHEN I want. Channels... times... superfluous!

Tivo takes EVERY SINGLE responsibility or burden off of you, the television watcher. Cliched as it may sound, Tivo really is "TV Your Way!" It's easier than a VCR with better quality, control, and versatility... I can certainly understand why the media isn't advertising it (have I MENTIONED that I haven't watched a TV commercial in TWO YEARS?), but I can't understand anyone not having this in his or her home.

It streamlines your television viewing, and saves you time, turning television into an active and dynamic pasttime, instead of the modern-day opiate of the masses. Sound good to you? If you get it, I cannot imagine you regretting it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Tivo, great if it worked!

My Philips TiVo 20 hour Tivo was working great for about four or five hours until the hard drive started acting up. Now the Hard drive seems to be messed up some how and all I can see now is a bunch of lines and blank screen. Now I have to go through the trouble of getting it fixed. This SUCKS because I just spent $150.00 for it and now the stupid thing won't work!

3-0 out of 5 stars When it works
I love the concept of the product. It's great when it works. Today, I'm sending it in because they say the hard drive needs to be replaced. I don't know if I will send it in. The exchange price is almost the cost of a new one. Funny how it waited one month after the warrenty was up. This one is really the fourth one that I've had. The first three didn't work out of the box. In order to get this one, I had a very patient Best Buy employee go through their stock until we found one that did work. In the end, there was only one left on the shelf. ... Read more

(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B0000BZHCS
Catlog: CE
Manufacturer: Magnavox
Sales Rank: 26031
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

The MC13E2MG TV/VCR may be small, but it packs a ton of features. Its light weight (23 pounds) and 13-inch screen make it perfect for kitchens, bedrooms, and dorm rooms, while its front-panel audio/video input accommodates a camcorder, game console, DVD player, or second VCR quickly and easily. Automatic features include auto tracking, auto repeat, and auto head cleaner.

The VCR's ShowGuard backup memory keeps your timer/programming safe, even through power outages. If the power fails, timer recordings will be restored when the clock is reset. (The timer recording will not occur if it was scheduled to take place during the power failure.)

Meanwhile, auto clock set with time-zone adjustment sets itself to the correct time from a user-approved channel carrying a time signal. Daylight-savings time adjustment automatically compensates for daylight savings time in early April and late October, so you don't have to reset the clock twice a year.

When tape playback begins, auto tracking seeks the optimum video and audio tracking positions for the clearest picture and sound. With automatic channel setup, the VCR tuner scans through television frequencies, automatically storing active broadcast channels into memory. Then, only channels programmed into memory are tuned using the channel up/down buttons on either the remote or front panel. Automatic channel preset can be repeated whenever desired, and you can always add or delete channels manually.

Other features include closed-captioning, bilingual (English/Spanish) onscreen display, a sleep/wake timer, amonaural earphone jack for private listening, repeat play, quasi-S-VHS performance (lets you play S-VHS tapes at standard VHS resolution), and forward/reverse search.

Catlog: CE

Sales Rank: 21840
Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

Bringing high-resolution audio performance to newly affordable prices, the Philips DVD763SA DVD player features high-end multichannel and stereo SACD playback in addition to accommodating DVD-Video, VCD, and MP3 CD-R and CD-RW. It also converts non-region-encoded PAL-formatted discs (the standard in Europe) for viewing on standard NTSC televisions.

Depending on the discs, SACD music releases provide super high-fidelity multichannel and/or stereo sound. Because the SACD signal is too high-resolution for the digital-to-analog converters in current surround receivers (and also as an anti-piracy measure), the DVD763SA performs its own decoding of SACD signals, passing high-resolution analog, not digital, audio to your integrated amplifier or surround receiver. This means you'll need an audio/video receiver with multichannel analog-audio inputs to appreciate multichannel SACD releases. Built-in SACD bass management helps tailor the output level of the ".1" LFE (low-frequency effects) channel to a system, as an appropriate level may differ from the output level appropriate for Dolby Digital and DTS surround mixes.

A set of stereo and a set of multichannel analog-audio outputs route audio from SACDs as well as from Dolby Digital- and DTS-encoded DVDs to a compatible audio/video receiver. If you're not planning to use the SACD capability for multichannel programming, both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can also be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for simpler connection to a compatible AV receiver.

Parallel video outputs let you route the player's composite-video, S-video, and high-end component-video outputs to three different televisions simultaneously. Other playback options include five-disc resume, which lets you pick-up where you left off on five most recently viewed DVDs, enhanced parental control (with 120-disc lockout), and picture zoom for magnification of select images.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great SACD, DVD player
I love the price - great deal for an SACD-compatible DVD player. I use a Kenwood receiver and speakers (HTB-504 home theatre in-a-box) but have replaced the sub with a Velodyne CHT-12. I connected the 6-channel analog audio with 3 pairs of Stealth FLR silver interconnects, the digital audio with a Stealth Fineline MK II S/PDIF digital coaxial cable, and the video with Audioquest/Cinemaquest YIQ-3 component video cables. The SACD sound is outstanding, and I actually prefer it for use as a DVD player over my Toshiba SD-3755 5-disc DVD changer, even though Toshiba DVD players are generally considered better than Philips. It automatically adjusts to correctly display widescreen movies, whereas with my Toshiba I have to use the 16:9 enhanced mode on my Sony TV. I couldn't be happier with the purchase, and, in retrospect, would gladly have paid more for it. The buyer should be aware, however, that it can get quite expensive buying the high-quality interconnect cables necessary for SACD playback.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good performance for price
At $... w/free shipping, this player is about the least expensive DVD/SACD player I have come across. I am very happy w/the DVD playback and the sound of SACD.

I have one cause for concern regarding SACD playback, though: When I put in hybrid CD/SACD, the player often refuses to recognize the SACD layer and only plays the CD layer. It usually takes a few times of putting the SACD in before it will recognize and play the SACD layer. It is very frustrating when I put an SACD in and can only get CD.

Overall though, the features work great. The remote and menu system are a bit complex at first, but they soon become fairly easy to navigate.

5-0 out of 5 stars DVD plus great-sounding SACD
This is a good DVD player at a very reasonable price. But it has an additional feature which makes it very special: in addition to DVDs and regular CDs, it plays the new SACDs -- which are the finest sounding recordings currently available.

When conventional CDs became available they displaced LPs in the marketplace because of their small size and the fact that their sound did not degrade with the ticks and pops that even the best-maintained LPs eventually acquire. But, despite these advantages -- as well as significant improvements in CD sound over time with technological advances such as oversampling -- many connoisseurs maintained that CDs never achieved the warmth and high-frequency sweetness characteristic of top-grade audiophile LPs. Now that has changed. Super Audio CDs are superior in sound to the finest audiophile-quality LPs I've ever heard. Furthermore, even conventional CDs played on a SACD player sound better than they do on typical CD players. In fact, the best conventional CDs in my collection equal audiophile-quality LPs in sound when played on a SACD player and the new SACDs sound even better. If you're going to buy a DVD player, why not get one like which also plays both CDs and the new terrific-sounding SACDs?

5-0 out of 5 stars matchline, matched mine!
Excellent apparatus, in combination with Philips 9616 PixelPlus TV and Philips MatchlineVR 1200 SVHS, Yamaha TopART Apmplifier and Surround Processors and a fine set of Dali Loudspeakers (2x Blue 606 and 2x Dali Suite 2.5) this DVD player is a joy. SACD: brilliant reproduction, even on regular stereo (hifi) sets or non-multichanneloptions chosen on the amplifier.

1-0 out of 5 stars An expensive lemon
After almost a year of minimal use, the system would stop recognizing dvd movies in the middle. After checking with Philips about a replacement throught the warranty, I was going to have to pay almost $...for a refurbished one (not a new one) from the very company that produced this piece of junk.
I will never buy an item from Philips ever again.

1-0 out of 5 stars lemon
product wouldn't function .didn't recognize/play discs of any drawer gets stuck 1/2 way.owners manual somewhat too generalized.hookup instructions toooooooooo confusing for 1st time buyers of this type of player.very poor product.

4-0 out of 5 stars So far.... so Good
So far, this player has been great. Audio quality with CDs seems terrific. DVD picture quality is good (at least with the S-video connect). I noticed the player had a slight skip in one of the movies we played, but has otherwise worked fine.

The MP3 feature is nice, especially for a unit [of this price]. The title of the MP3s are listed on the TV and the sound is great. However, playback of the MP3s seems to be limited in that the machine seems unable to randomly play the tracks.

The remote control is rather unimpressive and small, but otherwise, we've been very pleased with the product. So far... so good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value!

2-0 out of 5 stars There are much better buys out there!
Not Good.The VCR has good picture quality and some good features, but has serious drawbacks. Like the previous reviewer pointed out, the display on the VCR itself is useless, it doesn't even display the channel that the machine is on (you are forced to use the TV screen) which makes watching one program/recording another frustrating. The motor/tape transport is extremely noisy, even during normal playback. The included remote, while good, is frustrating to use, as the "volume" feature works only when 'TV' is selected. This forces you to constantly select between TV and VCR when watching a tape.Also, the machine is SO light that it slides all over the cabinet, we were forced to put rubber feet on the coasters.Consider other options before buying this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good buy for its features
I have had this VCR for about a month. Philips has packed lots of features in this one. The features I like most in this VCR include one button commercial skip (makes it convenient to skip 30 secs and play), fast rewind (saves time), frame by frame advance, variable speed slow mo, double speed play back, and above all various type of search mechanisms to locate your favorite recordings. You can use index search to quickly locate the start of a previously recorded program (saves time going forward and backward searching for the start of a program thereby reducing wear and tear of your cassettes). It can quickly go to the end of the last recording for you to continue recording from where you left off.It can play your S-VHS cassettes too, without the need to buy any other expensive hardware. The still picture is very stable and without any jitter. The only thing I did not like about it is that it does not show the time elapsed counter (during playback or recording a cassette) in its display. You can view the counter on your TV screen if you want, but not on the VCR display. This could be annoying to some. Above all a good buy for its price. ... Read more

The Philips DVD940AT DVD Player offers discrete dual-laser pickup to ensure high-quality pictures and sound with both DVDs and CDs. One laser is optimized for DVD-video playback while the other is dedicated to CD audio playback. Laser life is also maximized in this configuration. It is feature upgradable, meaning that the Philips DVD940AT allows you to add features using DVD upgrade discs as they become available through Philips. These might include backgrounds, search speeds and modes, audio processing, display parameters, interactivity, titles, CD Text, languages, screen savers, and upgraded video processing.

Audio features include virtual 3-D surround sound with Digital Theater Sound (DTS) capability. This player's TruSurround 3D uses SRS technology to create a virtual surround effect in stereo, which is particularly enjoyable with headphones.

Video features include three-jack component output connections that provide maximum signal quality and enhanced color accuracy for better performance than an S-video connection. The digital-to-analog converter converts the digital video information into 10-bit format instead of 8 or 9 bits. The Philips DVD940AT also provides perfect still-picture quality in pause, freeze-frame, or slow-frame advance modes.

This player offers an 80-disc parental approval system that, when activated, permits play of only preauthorized discs unless a special PIN code is entered. The player will remember up to 80 disc preauthorizations, allowing unrestricted playback of these discs.

The Philips DVD940AT comes with an S-video cable, a remote control with batteries, an audio cable, an AC cable, and a user's manual in English, French, and Spanish. This player is covered by a manufacturer's warranty of a year on parts, 90 days on labor. ... Read more

The Philips Magnavox VRA211AT VCR is an autocleaning two-head model with an onscreen bilingual (English and Spanish) display. A digital autotracking system automatically seeks the optimum position for both audio and video. Buttons on the remote transmitter give you manual control should tracking adjustments be necessary. You can search in forward or reverse mode at 15 times normal playing speed in superlong play (SLP).

This VCR also enables you to record up to eight hours of programming. A touch of the button on the remote adds 30 minutes of additional recording time. Eight-event, one-year smart programming allows you to program your VCR for unattended recording of up to eight separate programs over a 365-day period. No manual setting, adjusting, or programming of the calendar function is required. Onscreen features facilitate programming by giving you simple visual verification while the timer/programmer backup system retains timer programming information for up to a full minute in the event of momentary power interruptions. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars absolute junk
Couldn't be more unreliable. It malfunctions frequently, mangling tapes, sometimes severely. If you value your tapes, don't even think about this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product for the price
I needed a VCR for a rental property I own. I wanted something low cost, easy to use, that would hold up. I have had no compliants and it is holding up to a various people using it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Videophile
Nice basic VCR. Definitely a good buy in this price range.

2-0 out of 5 stars Decent for the price
The reason I bought this VCR was the price and because I own a Phillips Magnavox TV. On the plus side, I can control the TV with the VCR remote. This VCR plays tapes, the response is slow and there is no easy way to adjust the tracking using the remote. Shop around unless you already own a TV by the same manufacturer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good bet
This is a low-end unit that might be suitable for a second set (such as a childs room). The auto-tracking is unreliable, it has lots of problems playing rental tapes and I find the remote clunky. Definitely look at a unit further up the quality scale if this is to be your primary VCR. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars no particular problems
VERRRY slow to recognize whether you've fed it a DVD, CD, or MP3 disc. When I got this, I had planed to toss my 12-year old JVC audio CD player to save space, but this unit loads so slowly that I kept the JVC out and hooked up, and still use it in preference to this unit for audio CD's. However, picture and sound quality are excellent, unit is about 2 years old and going strong.
The MP3 disc capacility has not been all I'd hoped, even though I really selected this unit for this feature. The video display of filenames only shows the first 14 characters of the file, which is really not sufficient for the way I do my filenames ("1969-02-27 b06 The Eleven (Part 1).mp3"). MP3 also has a technical problem with playing continuous tracks, like live music, a lot of what I listen to, so I use OGG Vorbis which is non-commercial, duty-free, and much better at handling continuous tracks. (WMA is also better than MP3 on that score, if you enjoy DRM.) But in fact, the unit won't play MP3 tracks continuously anyway. These problems combined with the slow loading, and I've hardly used the MP3 feature. If somebody would get this feature right, I should think it would go over big, because you can easily put 8-10 hours of music on a single disc! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very reliable
I've had Phillips/Magnavox VCR for over 12 years. It finally kicked the bucket this week. Would not hesitate to buy another one. My TV is equally as old and still going strong. My parents owned a Phillips/Magnavox TV for 20 years. We are sold on this Company's reliability!

5-0 out of 5 stars I am ordering another one!
For a few years I have had to carry the VCR in the workout room down to the living room. A hassle and a half I can assure you. Well, now that the price has dropped...(I spend more on books than electronics), I am going to buy a second one. I think it is still important to have a VCR to watch all those old movies. You really can't get the same quality on DVD in some selections for some reason.

The newer movies are fine, but VHS seems best for the older ones so far. Plus, who wants to give away all those great movies? Not me! Most workout videos are still on VHS and workout DVD's are just coming out. Philips Magnavox has been a great reliable brand and I can't say enough about this product. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS TV!!!!!!
When we recieved our first one, it never worked straight out of the box. We exchanged it and the second tv worked for about 2 months and suddenly the audio went out....

1-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed
The audio broke after 7 months of very kind occasional use. The only thing less reliable than this equipment was the Philips consumer relations department. I'll never purchase another Philips product again nor allow my workplace to purchase one unless they improve their warranty or reliability.

1-0 out of 5 stars Broken in FOUR DAYS
We had this item a total of 4 days. It ate 2 videos. Then wouldn't take any more videos. I am returning it. This is the second TV / VCR combination made by Phillips Magnavox that has broken in record time (with normal use). Very disappointed in their products and won't buy another item from this company.

This TV/VCR has some really great features. The best is the Clock that automatically sets itself! The remote control is easy to use and makes it super simple to record my favorite programs. Great TV for kitchen or bedroom! ... Read more

96. Philips 30PW862H 30" Widescreen HD-Ready TV with 2-Tuner PIP
list price: $1,499.99
(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B0000AAAIC
Catlog: CE
Manufacturer: Philips
Sales Rank: 38660
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

Get the most from the digital age with Philips' 30-inch 30PW862H Real Flat, high-definition widescreen TV. The set's picture tube affords the best home cinema viewing when used with a progressive-scan DVD player or an outboard digital set-top box for DTV reception. Onboard two-tuner, double-window PIP gives you complete flexibility when keeping tabs on two programs simultaneously, right down to the handy freeze feature, which holds an image in the PIP frame and lets you keep watching your program in the main window.

Picture enhancements include a sophisticated 3D Y/C digital comb filter, which improves quality of incoming interlaced video signals by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

Eye Fidelity gives you the choice between different line doubling and scanning techniques--progressive or interlaced--so you can reduce motion artifacts like jagged edges and stair stepping, viewing material in progressive scan (480p) or a line-doubled (1050i) picture.

Scan-velocity modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. Further, a feature called Active Control continuously analyzes incoming signals and optimizes picture color, sharpness, contrast, and digital noise reduction 60 times per second.

The set offers stereo reception with 10 watts power per stereo speaker, and onboard Virtual Dolby Surround processing simulates surround sound from any two speakers.

Two sets of high-definition component-video inputs (1080i/480p) accommodate a set-top box/HD satellite receiver and a progressive-scan DVD player, while a direct-digital DVI input obviates unnecessary image conversions between digital and analog on the way from your set-top box to your TV.

Side and rear composite- and S-video inputs accommodate other hardware such as a camcorder or gaming device. Rear-panel audio/video outputs make it a cinch to hook the set up with your home theater surround receiver for a truly enveloping A/V experience. A .125-inch headphone jack lets you listen in private, and the set also includes a universal remote control.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great... so far...
We just purchased this unit at Costco for about $130. According to the Costco Electronics specialist, this Philips model was the least likely to be returned (other models there included Toshiba, Sony, and Pioneer -- the low-end Toshiba was apparently the most likely to be returned).

So far, playback has been good. We noticed a slight jump in one of the discs we played. CD and mp3 playback are both decent.

The features on the Philips compare favorable with models that are much more expensive. While our unit is only 3 weeks old, I'd recommend it as a decent entry level DVD player.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worked well for me.
This unit has been fine for me. I have yet to experience the issues described by other reviewers...perhaps I'm just lucky. The setup was easy. The menus simple and a cinch to set up, and playback has been superb. The price was great, bought it at BJ's. It's a step above the low-end DVD players at a low end price.

2-0 out of 5 stars Decent
The first time we played a CD in this DVD player, it refused to come out. We tried everything. I took it back to the store I purchased it at and they had no clue as to how to eject the CD. We finally took a screwdriver to the disk tray and popped the whole unit out. They replaced it with a new player.

We've had no problems with the new one, but the remote is full of buttons we never use, and with the problems we've had with this model, we realize we should have just waited a few months until the price on DVD players dropped (...)

Bottom line: don't bother with it for this price!

3-0 out of 5 stars First DVD Slightly Disappointing
We bought an entire system. We had heard that Phillips products were reliable, but almost everytime we watch rented movies on the DVD player, they skip. Sometimes the movie will stop on the screen for a minimum of fifteen seconds at a time. It's a problem comparable to the tracking being off while watching a VHS movie. It's extremely annoying. We tend to use our VHS player much more than the DVD because of the skipping problem.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good price, poor performance
The first couple of months the product was terrific, but then we noticed that the on/off button rarely works now, and the DVD freezes constantly. I don't know if it is a lemon, but it is very poor quality performance wise. ... Read more

98. Philips 26PF9976 26" Digital Media LCD Flat Panel HDTV-Ready TV

(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B00021Z8W2
Catlog: CE
Manufacturer: Philips
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

The Philips 26PF9976 gives you the quality of a high-definition perfectly flat TV married with the convenience of a digital video recorder--without a bulky hard drive and with the ability to easily transport and view your recordings elsewhere. With the LCD TV's built-in digital flash-media recorder you can record and share your digital videos, MP3 music, and JPEG photos--even pause TV as you're watching. The set's multiformat media slot handles Smart Media, SD (Secure Digital), MMC (MultiMedia Card), Memory Stick, Compact Flash, and micro-drive memory. You can enjoy high-quality movies and even a JPEG slideshow while tuned to your favorite MP3 music file.

The 26PF9976 also gives you a high-performance, widescreen (16:9) image from a casing with a depth of little more than 4 inches. The 26-inch set offers high brightness (450 cd/m3) and high contrast (400:1), as well as integrated TV and FM radio tuners for cable or broadcast reception of all your favorite programs and stations. Hook it up to an optional DTV receiver or progressive-scan DVD player and you'll enjoy vivid, detailed images from 1080i, 720p, and 480p sources, which render at up to 720p resolution on the set's native 1,024 x 768-pixel screen.

LCD technology allows screens to be thinner and televisions to be lighter and more energy-efficient than ever before. The result is television that not only fits on a wall, but fits in places conventional televisions cannot. The 26PF9976's comes outfitted with Digital Crystal Clear technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, a 3D digital comb filter, color-transient improvement (CTI), and green-/blue-stretch color enhancement.

A feature called Active Control Plus continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction, even adjusting for changes in ambient viewing light.

PIP features include standard picture-in-picture (a second source image inset within the main image), picture-by-picture (split-screen viewing), and picture-in-graphics (video source over PC image).

The set pumps 5 watts per channel x 2 RMS (10 watts x 2 peak power), and onboard Dolby Virtual Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any 2 speakers. FM tuning options include 40 convenient presets, RDS (Radio Data Service) for visual station and song identification, and auto/manual station setting. The unit's .125-inch headphone jack affords private listening.

Audio/video inputs include a direct-digital HDMI input, 1 component-video, 2 S-video, and 1 composite-video connections, as well as a VGA computer input. A convenient side-panel input simplifies spontaneous hookups, and an RJ-45 data port lets you hook the TV up directly to your computer for simplified data transfer from its digital media recorder.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver) with an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Product Description

Producing 55 inches of widescreen excitement from a housing less than 18 inches deep, the Philips 55PL9223 Cineos television makes use of Philips' patented Liquid Crystal On Silicon (LCOS) reflective technology, which frees the set to be both lighter and smaller than current projection or CRT sets. The 55PL9223 offers an HD-ready, flicker-free screen with perfect convergence, no visible pixel grid, and no risk of image burn-in.

With its native 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution and a multitude of analog and digital inputs, the TV accepts high-resolution pictures from DTV set-top boxes, PCs, DVD players, and other devices, including both 1080i HD signals and 1,280 x 1,024 PC feeds. All standard-definition interlaced video signals are treated to Philips' PixelPlus line doubling, which turns them into near-high-definition (HD) images. By doubling the number of lines and the number of pixels per line, PixelPlus enhances both regular TV broadcasts and DVD inputs for unparalleled sharpness and depth.

Active Control performs continuous picture analysis and maintains control of Automatic Digital Noise Reduction and auto sharpness. A 3-line digital comb filter gives you improved chroma/luminance separation over standard 2-line comb filters.

The set's double-window, dual-tuner picture-in-picture feature splits the screen into two independent halves, letting you do everything from watching 2 shows simultaneously to watching one while surfing the other, or scanning channels while keeping an eye on video input 1, 2, or 3.

The set uses 2-way stereo speakers with a 2-inch and a 5-inch driver in each, and also features an auto volume limiter to minimize drastic level changes between, say, a TV program and its commercials. A center-channel speaker input lets you use the set as a center--no bulky or costly center-channel required--and a rear-panel subwoofer output makes it easy to hook up a powered sub for deeper-than-deep bass effects or low-end musical authenticity.

A 20-watts-per-channel sound system offers both Virtual Dolby Surround and Incredible Surround, processing circuitry that produces the sensation of surround sound without the hassle of installing additional rear speakers.

Other connections include 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, 3 component-video inputs (2 HD, 1 standard), a 15-pin D-Sub PC connection, and a DVI direct digital input for use with a compatible DTV set-top box or other DVI device. A set of audio/video outputs lets you integrate the set with your stereo or surround receiver, and a set of side-mounted AV inputs with a headphone output simplifies hookup of a camcorder, gaming console, or VCR.

Magnavox's MPD700 offers the versatility of a portable DVD player alongside the performance of a sophisticated home-theater component--and you can use it as both. You can also personalize your playback like never before: the player handles DVD-Video, DVD+R/+RW, and standard and recordable audio CDs, including MP3- and JPEG-encoded discs. Its slender chassis houses a 7-inch widescreen (16:9) liquid-crystal display and outputs for use with a larger monitor (including an S-video output).

Audio features also include DTS and Dolby Digital passthrough (for use with a compatible audio/video receiver and multichannel speaker system), built-in stereo speakers, and a headphone jack (headphones are not included).

A handy DC power adapter for vehicle use gives you unlimited playback on the road, and the unit's built-in rechargeable battery is good for about three hours between charges. A slim, full-function remote control further simplifies operation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great item
I had been researching portable DVD players for awhile and had initially settled on an Audiovox D1501, which is a 5.8 inch player that is selling for about $235.00 (It has great reviews). I was at Target a day after I ordered the thing from Amazon, and I actually saw a D1501. Nice unit, but pretty thick and the case seemed to be kind of a flimsy plastic. The way I treat stuff I would have had it broke in no time. Sitting next to the D1501 was this Magnavox. Slimmer case, heavier duty, and a 7" screen. The price ($300.00 on sale) was more than I had wanted to spend, but it seemed like a better way to go. I bought it and am very happy with it. Excellent screen resolution, sound, and it plays my recordable DVDs (which I understand some of the cheaper portable DVDs don't do). All in all, an excellent unit and one I would highly recommend to friends and family.

4-0 out of 5 stars good quality player
I've researched these portable players for 3 days,reading about them on line and going to all the electronic stores at the mall.
This one seems to be the best for quality,and the picture is really clear.The ones I looked at at Walmart and all the other stores were Audiovox and Initial brands and they felt flimsy to me ,this mpd 700 is heavier and I feel it's just better made.
This Magnavox MPD700 cost a little more than the other 7"portables but it's worth it.We purchased 2 small computer type
speakers at Radio Shack $10, to plug in to it.We like to watch a movie or cooking Dvd in the kitchen.The built in speakers are fine if your sitting somewhat near to the player, but we just wanted to enhance the sound for a better sound for at home use.
The speakers with the unit are fine for car and plane use.
We also used the player as a dvd player hooked up to our t.v.that was pretty neat too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Customer Service
As mentioned in an earlier review, one can order an extra battery from Magnavox. However, getting through to a live person proved frustrating for me. I needed the battery for a long trip, and was told I would receive the battery (if I paid extra) in time. To make a long story short, it did not arrive on time, and I no longer had a use for it. After being on hold, being disconnected twice, and making several phone calls, I was told that I could return it at my cost, and pay a 15% restocking fee. This was despite the fact that 3 people had guaranteed I would receive the battery on time. No reason or apology was given to me for why I did not receive it on time, and Magnavox has lost a good customer due to this treatment.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
this is the best portable dvd player ive had so far!!it is a MUST HAVE!!it makes audiovox look junky!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good - but I miss the S-video output
I have the MPD-720. The big differences I see between this one and the MPD-700 before is that Magnavox deleted the S-video and optical output jacks, and combined the audio and composite video outputs into one output jack (the cable is included). I'm bummed about the missing S-video as you really can see a difference in picture quality on your TV when a DVD player is hooked up with an S-video input versus a composite input. Oddly enough, the unit includes a coaxial digital output for digital sound processing into a home theater system, but the manual doesn't tell you how to use it - and I doubt that most people who buy this player will use it. However, the suggested retail price dropped from $399 (for the MPD-700) to $279 for the MPD-720.
For a player in this price range, I thought the picture and physical build quality was a bit above the average. I'm using this DVD player in my car to entertain my 18 month old. It comes with a car bag to mount to the back of your seat, as well as a car power adapter. The mechanical operation of the player is a bit noisy, but I really don't notice it that much in use. It also comes with an AC power adaptor, two headphone jacks - but no headphones are included. The speakers on the unit sound tinny but are acceptable. For better sound in my car, I use one of the headphone jacks to output the sound thru my car stereo via a separate cassette adapter I bought.
For the price, this a good player - especially for my intended use. However, if you want an even better picture quality and better options to hook it up to a home theater system or large TV - you'll probably have to look at other players and most likely pay much more. ... Read more
