Amazon.com Review

Uniquely designed with similarities to an espresso machine, this coffee maker features a 1450-watt boiler that brews a 4-ounce cup of coffee in just thirty seconds, or two 4-ounce cups or one 8-ounce mug in 60 seconds. Because the machine uses pre-measured coffee pods, the system is hassle-free, easy to clean, and guarantees a flavorful, fresh brew each time.

Measuring 13-1/2 by 12 by 8-1/2 inches, the coffee maker is shaped like a curved cylinder with a round base. Two pod holders are included: a shallow holder that holds one coffee pod for one cup, and a deeper filter that holds two pods for two cups (or one 8-ounce mug). After filling the removable reservoir with fresh water to the ‘max’ line, the pods are inserted and the lid locked into place. A simple push of the on/off button and either of the one or two cup buttons starts the brewing process. Up to five 4-ounce cups can be brewed on one reservoir of water. Cups are not included, but almost any 4-ounce cup or 8-ounce mug will do the trick. All the removable parts--the pod holders, reservoir, coffee spout, plastic drip tray, and metal cup tray--are dishwasher-safe. A variety of coffee pods are available separately. This coffee machine is unusable at altitudes over 6800 feet. The Senseo coffee maker is covered by a two-year warranty against defects and measures 13-1/2 by 12 by 8-1/2 inches. --Ann Bieri ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Only one complaint
Well, technically, I can't complain. It does what it's advertised to do -- make a piping hot cup of coffee in about 90 seconds with foam on the top. Changing coffee brands took some getting used to. For a company that's been in business since 1753, Douwe Egberts has a few things to learn about coffee. It has a sour taste that always makes me wonder if my cream has gone bad. Folgers Home Café makes pods about the same size. I never thought I'd be drinking Folgers, but it tastes better than the coffee designed for the machine. Were someone to come up with a reusable coffee pod, I'd go through the extra bother to get an excellent cup again. My one gripe with the Senseo is that the spout is fitted too low to accommodate any of my coffee mugs. The spout should be adjustable to provide an extra 1/4 to 1/2 inch of space if needed. I looked at the two cups that came with the machine only long enough to judge their weight and balance so I could sail them across the kitchen into the trash container. I found just one mug in my kitchen short enough to fit under the spout, so now I drink my coffee from my son's Winnie the Pooh Happy Birthday hot chocolate mug. He stopped drinking out of that mug 10 years ago. (sigh)

5-0 out of 5 stars Time for a coffee break worth every sip
Let me stress that I don't work for the manufacturer or for Sara Lee!

I received my machine on 9 April 2004 and brewed a cup within a few minutes (after flushing the machine as recommended). Even the medium roast tasted richer than most coffee I've made with traditional coffee makers. My wife likes a milder tasting coffee, so the mild roast is perfect for her. The dark roast is the closest to espresso you'll get without spending hundreds on an espresso machine. The coffee is nice and hot and the "crema" layer on top completes the experience!

For those who gave this machine poor reviews, make sure you wash the pod holders and water tank and flush the machine before the first use. If you don't use it for more than a day, flush it before use with fresh, cold water. Be sure to use the correct pod holder and press the correct (4 oz or 8 oz) button. Place the pod with the flat side up(has the Senseo logo printed on this side). Use fresh, cold water (probably the most important ingredient in coffee) and don't reuse the pods! I tried this and the second cup tasted like "coffee from a can" coffee. Finally, and most important: give the coffee a stir before drinking. The bottom layer contains most of the good stuff.

I hope that other coffee roasters are reading these reviews and will offer pods. My only concern at this point is that there aren't any alternative pods from other roasters yet available. The Douwe Egberts brand coffee is excellent, but the availability of a variety of blends and beans will be demanded soon, because sales of this machine are sure to take off!

Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars European coffee at its best
This is a great coffee maker if you like strong european coffee, which I do. The cup sizes are smaller than what most americans are used to, but the coffee tastes great, and more is not needed. I've been looking for something like this for ages. Glad I found it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Looks Good, Tastes Lousy
This machine looks great on the counter and you can't beat the convenience. You'll have 4 ounces (1 pod) or 8 ounces (2 pods) of the most mediocre and expensive coffee you could hope for in less than two minutes--from a cold start. Maybe it's not the coffee, but the process that turns out this cup of...whatever it is. I don't know. <br /> <br /> Maybe some other models make a better cup of coffee--and a real cup, not this dainty 4 oz toy cup. Try before you buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah BABY!!!
I got a Black & Decker home cafe for my birthday in September. Great coffee...well due to reviews on this site I kept the box and receipt (it was from Target..of course :). Well it worked <br /> for about 6 weeks...and then started spewing water everywhere. <br /> I boxed it up and took it back and decided I could be ok with <br /> my drip coffee maker...well here I am 1 week later...I was <br /> making my sorry drip coffee this morning and...long story short. I couldn't deal...so I went to target this afternoon <br /> and used my gift card (from the Home Cafe return) to purchase <br /> a nice black senseo. <br /> <br /> I have just finished my first cup of coffee from the Senseo and WOW. AWESOME. There is no contest between the coffee <br /> from the senseo and the coffee from the home cafe. The home <br /> cafe made lukewarm coffee...the senseo made coffee just slightly too hot to drink right away...PEFECT IMHO. I like <br /> my coffee to be good and hot when I first drink it.<br /> <br /> Also, the senseo is most certainly of higher qualite' than <br /> the B&D machine. It doesn't feel like it's going to fall <br /> apart when you touch it. I did take the advice of the <br /> reviewer who said to thoroughly clean and soak all the pieces <br /> before using the machine and I don't notice any strange chemical-like taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, major thumbs up. I thought the home cafe would be <br /> nicer because you can get a 14 oz cup of coffee..but honestly <br /> 8 oz is PLENTY and really if you wanted 12 you can just <br /> brew an 8 oz cup and press the 1 cup button again and get <br /> your 12 oz. It would be nice if you could fit a travel mug <br /> in it...but I did get quite a large mug that I have under <br /> the spout so this isn't that big of an issue. <br /> <br /> I also find that one pod is enough even with 8 oz of coffee. <br /> It was quite strong (course I am an American and all so not <br /> used to drinking straight up espresso)....and just about <br /> perfect for my taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, just wanted to let you all know I think the senseo is <br /> a great buy. Now if the pods would come down in price I'd <br /> be REALLY pleased. :) ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips HDRW720 DVD recorder/hard disk combination lets you adjust your TV viewing to suit your everyday life. You'll have the option to record up to a staggering 192 hours--8 straight days--of television directly to the built-in 120 GB hard-disk drive (HDD) to watch and delete programs at your leisure. Or you can save programs to DVD for life. Your choice. The HDRW720 also offers the easy-to-use TV Guide onscreen electronic program guide (EPG) so you can just point and click to record your favorite programs.

Viewed programs are automatically stored on the adjustable 6-hour HDD buffer, from which you can retrieve them, watch them again, transfer them to the hard drive, or simply record them onto a DVD+R/+RW disc. A feature called FlexTime lets you watch the beginning of a program while it's still being recorded. And, with the touch of a button, high-speed archiving will copy a recording from the hard disk to recordable media. Thanks to Instant Replay, you can immediately repeat exciting or memorable TV moments at the press of just one button.

You can also use the HDRW720 like a traditional VCR, burning televised programs directly to disc using helpful VCR Plus+ programming data. A DVD recorder is perfect, of course, for archiving your home videos, and the HDRW720 features a front-panel i.Link digital-video connection for easy DV camcorder hookup, perfect copies, and 2-way camera control.

Recording functions include safe record, one-touch record (OTR), track append, track divide, automatic/manual chapter marker insertion, Smart Chaptering, favorite scene selection, and Selectable Index Pictures.

The HDRW720 is also a first-rate DVD player, featuring progressive-scan video outputs, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround sound passthrough, MP3 CD playback (CD-R/CD-RW), and compatibility with most DVD media (including video-mode DVD-R and DVD-RW).

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the HDRW720 will deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Top-of-the-line component-video inputs and outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite-video, S-video, and RF coaxial video inputs and outputs bring compatibility with nearly any video component and television monitor. Audio inputs consist of 2-channel analog jacks.

Two sets of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (1 each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

What's in the Box
DVD recorder/hard disk, a universal remote control, remote batteries, a channel blaster (IR extender cable), a blank DVD+RW disc, an AC power cable, a composite-video cable, a stereo audio cable, a coaxial RF antenna cable, an S-video cable, a component-video cable, a digital-audio coaxial cable, a user's manual, and warranty information. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Machine -- Great Coffee!
Hi, there!

I recently went on a trip to The Netherlands and discovered Senseo there. I was very happy to realize they were being sold stateside as well and immediately purchased a machine for my husband and I.

I *LOVE* The coffee, it stands up well to Soy Milk, all my guests can have their choice per cup, (some want decaf, some want dark, some medium or light). I also love that every cup I make is fresh and hot, not like when I used to have to make a whole pot then keep it vacuum sealed just to get bitter and overcooked all day. My "usual" is an 8-oz cup made with one Dark Roast and one Medium Roast pod.

It seems a lot of my friends are confused about whether this is an espresso machine or a coffee machine. Its a coffee machine that uses "Espresso-Pod-Like" pods to make normal drip coffee, one cup at a time. Its nice, rich coffee, but its not espresso, though I guess you could make a Latte or Mocha out of the resulting brew if you wanted.

I had purchased a Melitta machine, but I returned it because the top was hard to keep closed, it seemed a bit "flimsy" and it ONLY made one size cup of coffee, I didn't have the choice to make one smaller cup, two smaller cups or one big mug, which I really like with this machine. The coffee also didn't taste anywhere near as nice to me.

Senseo's coffee is comparable to Starbucks that I've tried, not quite as good as fresh brewed Starbucks drip, and not as hearty as a Starbucks espresso, but definitely good, rich and flavorful. In Europe, they have several other flavors of pods including Rio de Janeiro, Milano, Vienna and Sydney. I guess these are all part of the "City Sensations" line. Also, Douwe Egberts, the maker of the coffee pods, is a HUGE brand in The Netherlands... in the airport and at several other locations, there are Douwe Egberts cafes in the Amsterdam airport, etc. and its a well-respected brand.

I'm surprised to hear that some think the machine is too noisy. While mine does make a distinct noise while brewing the coffee, its very short and about the same level of noise as a larger pump for a fishtank makes... it lasts less than a minute.

Anyway, enough said. I hope you all enjoy your Senseo machines!

-Rob Norton

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best new products of 2004
This is a marvelous machine for a variety of reasons:

1) Good coffee. I am particular about coffee and when I read so many people complaining about the taste of the coffee I made sure I could return the unit if the coffee was as bad as some people claimed. It was not. The crema on top and the freshness of the coffee are great. If the best coffee house coffee is an "A", then this creates "B+" coffee.

2) Could not be easier to use or clean. I have had several people's jaws drop as they push the button and find themselves drinking great coffee just 25 seconds later. Clean up involves rinsing off a couple of parts that are easily detached.

3) Freshness, not quantity. I used to drink 12-16 ounces of coffee in the morning. Now I drink 4 ounces first thing in the morning, another 4 ounces a little later and perhaps another 4 ounces in the afternoon. Since it is so easy to make a fresh cup anytime I want one, I prefer this schedule to a big cup in the morning. The Senseo can brew 8 ounces at a time, but a rich 4 ounce cup is surprisingly satisfying.

4) To each his own: Just this evening two people at my dinner party wanted decaf while another wanted dark roast and the fourth wanted light roast. With the Senseo, these individual orders were a snap.

5) Good coffee with more options on the horizon: The Douwe Egberts brand is fine but as this coffee machine gains popularity, alternatives will emerge. Visit podhead.com to see more on the potential here.

My sister visited Holland and tasted our Senseo made coffee.<br /> she said " Oh man!! I have to get me one of these!"<br /> I went online, There it was at Target! I sent the link!<br /> My sister is going to freakout when she sees my mail! Thanks, Target!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The Dutch know their coffee!
I come from the Netherlands and I am familiar with the quality of both Douwe Egberts and Philips products and seeing this amazing combined effort I couldn't resist!*smile* I bought this coffee maker as a gift for my boyfriend's grandparents and they love it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Best at home coffee ever
I bought all three pod coffee makers(one at a time) and kept the Senseo. The others were returned. The Melita leaked if I used anything other than Melita coffee pods, the Black and Decker's coffee did not even compare and it was a pain to change the pods, the Senseo makes and excellent cup of FRESH coffee and is easy to use. It also works with all of the pods that I have found locally (grocer has Folgers and Senseo, got Melita pods @ Target). It also works with the Melita tea pods - my husband is an Enlishman and loves his tea - this machine delivers for both of us. The coffee is frothy, hot and delicious. No more stale, bitter coffee at our house. Always fresh. This is a great machine for any coffee or tea lover. I just wish the pods were more easily accessible. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you've been hankering to integrate your digital media files with your enterta inment system, the Philips SL400i Streamium WiFi-enabled audio-video streaming d evice offers a slick path toward exactly that end. Without bogging down your PC' s resources, the SL400i gives you access to your complete library of digital pho tos, MP3 music, and computer- and Internet-based movies and video content--all w irelessly, provided your router or the supplied wireless adapter reaches your de sired playback spot.


The SL400i's easy-to-navigate menus help keep all your media accessible.
Use it with PC, use it with Macintosh (Windows 98, 98SE, 20 00, ME, XP, and Mac OS X).

The supplied wireless USB transmitter is a blessing for anyone who doesn't have an existing wireless home network. If you plan to use the device with your exist ing network, make sure your hardware (router, wireless cardbus adapter, etc.) isWiFi-compliant (802.11g/b). While the product claims 802.11b compatibility, we strongly recommend using 802.11g or, with 802.11b, devices made in late 2003 and2004; we experienced only intermittent success with a 2002 802.11b router. If a ll else fails, you can always connect a special crossover Ethernet (Cat5) cable,not supplied, between your computer and the SL400i.

With broadband Internet access and a compatible wireless home network already inplace, setup should be delightfully simple: plug in the SL400i, hook up the aud io and video outputs with your TV or surround receiver, and turn it on. In our s ystem, the SL400i found our network automatically and allowed us to get right toInternet registration (at my.philips.com) so we could listen to any number of W eb radio stations while installing the Philips Media Manager software (or PMM) o n our computer. You'll need to disable your Microsoft and/or other computer-base d firewalls, relying instead on the firewall built into your wireless router. (O therwise, open ports 49152 to 65535 for the SL400i.)



See how you can use the supplied wireless USB transmitter to turn your home into a wireless network.
The value of the Internet audio and video should not be underestimated. You can use the many theme-based radio stations from Live365.com, Andante, MP3.com, Play house Radio, or Yahoo's LaunchCast (among others) to sonically coordinate a dinn er or dance party, and there's plenty there to entertain the kids, too. Yahoo an d iFilm.com provide high-quality music videos and film trailers (up to 700 kbps) . For radio, sound quality proved remarkably listenable, with most but not all s tations broadcasting in stereo sound free of the swishy artifacts that plague mu ch online audio. Online services also include Internet gaming.

With respect to streaming your media files, the SL400i sees only the files or fo lders you've selected for it. Within the PMM--and right from your living room--y ou can sort music by artist, genre, album, or song, or select slideshow mode forviewing your JPEG digital photos. Full-screen mode expands JPEG images and vide o streams to literally fill your screen, a nice change from JPEG-friendly DVD pl ayers that render a digital photo as a tiny box with a huge black frame.

For music listening, you don't even need your TV on--the SL400i's handy LCD letsyou select audio files or Internet radio stations in peace, a feature we'd liketo see worked into DVD players' menu systems.

If you choose to keep your TV on while listening to music, the SL400i offers 2 d ifferent content-modulated visual patterns to choose from, a nice touch and a ni ce alternative to a blank screen. Philips is actively updating its services and its software, and the SL400i will periodically update its firmware--a cool featu re designed to keep the unit technologically shipshape, running ever more smooth ly and accommodating ever more formats. --Michael Mikesell

Pros:

  • Straightforward setup and installation when used with compatible hardware
  • High-quality streaming audio and video
  • Full-screen and slideshow options for JPEG image viewing
  • Front-panel LCD permits music selection without having to turn on your TV
  • Includes a wealth of online A/V content

  • Lets you search for next track while still listening to current track

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips MCM7 micro shelf system packs power and performance into its sleek, diminutive package. With a brushed metal hardware and wood-finished speakers, it will look at home in the most refined of rooms or offices. It includes a CD player, cassette deck, and digital AM/FM tuner, along with two 50-watt speakers and a full-function remote control.

The MCM7 can play a variety of CD media, including CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3 formatted discs that can store up to 10 hours of music. That means that you can record mixes of your favorite music on your computer and listen to them on the shelf system without having to change the CD all day.

The full logic cassette deck has several recording features that make it easy to make your own tapes, including automatic recording levels, a CD synchro start function, and one-touch recording. The micro system can also function as a clock radio, with radio, CD, and tape alarm functions, along with a sleep timer and snooze button.

Incredible Surround technology enhances sound dimensions for fuller more realistic audio, and bass and treble control options to personalize high and low tone settings. The sound is pumped out of two speakers for 100 watts total power, and the 2-way bass reflex speaker system delivers deep bass from the compact speakers. One aux in connection is included, along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

WiFi fun includes music videos, Web movies, and cinema trailers, as well as the variety of music available through Philips' Streamiumservice partners, including as MP3.com, MusicMatch, live365.com, Radio Free Virgin, Playhouse Radio, and Andante. There's no need to first download files to your PC, or even to turn the PC on, to stream multimedia Internet content. (A broadband Internet connection is required.)



See how you can use the supplied wireless USB transmitter to turn your home into a wireless network
The system consists of a Dolby Digital/DTS-capable surround sound receiver with an integrated five-DVD/CD changer, four compact satellite speakers, a center speaker, and a pair of Twin Sub bass pipes for full-throttle theater power. The MX6000i h as Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Pro Logic II processing, which generates 5.1-ch annel audio from any 2-channel source. The selectable NTSC/PAL DVD transport plays DVD+R/RWs, DVD-R/-RWs, VCDs, SVCDs, MPEG-4 videos, DivX files (3.11/4.x/5.x), CDs, CD-R/RWs, MP3 CDs, JPEG image CDs, and Kodak Picture CDs. An onscreen display simplifies setup and operation.

The MX6000i is equipped to access online services directly or to stream digital media like music, pictures, and movies from the hard disk of a networked PC (using the supplied PC Link software). When the system is hooked up to a widescreen TV, you'll enjoy all this multimedia content in the comfort of your living room. Wireless connectivity based on the 802.11b and .11g standards gives you the choice of connecting the MX6000i to cable or DSL broadband services through either a wireless network router or a wired Ethernet connection. Another feature of Philips' Streamium technology is upgradeability. You can upgrade the MX6000i via the Internet, adding new services and features like online games and access to Web-based photo albums, futureproofing the system against obsolescence and changing standards.



The MX6000i's easy-to-navigate menus help keep all your media accessible.
If your digital music files contain metadata, e.g., ID3 tag information (title, artist, and album), those details are show on a five-line display as well as on screen. You can navigate PC multimedia content on your TV and stereo with the remote control.

Six integrated 75-watt audio amplifiers drive the stereo speakers, the matching rear speakers, a center speaker, and two subwoofers built into the rear speaker columns. The system's four two-way (three-driver) satellite speakers acoustically match the tonal characteristics of the center speaker. Front left, right, and center speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent any interference with your television image.

The system's Class D digital amplifier takes an analog signal, converts it into a digital signal, and then amplifies it, producing strong, clear sound at high efficiency and with low distortion. Philips's ClearVoice technology ensures accurate dialogue separation in the action scenes of a movie, and you can adjust the speaker settings using the remote to achieve optimum sound immersion and listening enjoyment. The system's tuner offers AM/FM digital tuning with 40 presets (including an autostore facility and RDS display for station name and program type). Eco-power standby mode reduces power consumption to less than one watt.

Amazon.com Review

Though it may look like a computer peripheral, Philips's gleaming silver Streamium SL300i multimedia receiver is a perfect fit for your living room or bedroom. Amazingly compact, the hardcover-book-sized device is WiFi-enabled to stream audio, video, and Internet-based entertainment from your PC to your television, stereo, home theater, or other platform at a remove from your computer. Wireless transmission requires integration with a home network, but we found setup a snap. If you don't have an existing network, you can also run a special crossover Ethernet (Cat5) cable (not supplied) between your computer and the SL300i--an immediate and affordable alternative.

Without bogging down your PC's resources, the SL300i gives you access to your complete library of digital photos, MP3 music, and computer- and Internet-based movies and video content. Use it with your PC or Mac (Windows 98, 98SE, 2000, ME, and XP and Mac OS X; Mac wireless networking available starting fall 2004). If you plan to connect the device to an existing network, make sure your hardware (router, wireless cardbus adapter, etc.) is WiFi-compliant (802.11g/b). While the product claims 802.11b compatibility, we strongly recommend using 802.11g or, if 802.11b, devices made within the last year or so; we experienced only intermittent success with a 2002-vintage 802.11b router.

With broadband Internet access and a compatible wireless home network already in place, setup should be delightfully simple: plug in the SL300i, hook up the audio and video outputs to your TV or surround receiver via composite- or S-video jacks, and turn it on. In our system, the SL300i "found" our network automatically and allowed us to get right to Internet registration (at my.philips.com) so we could listen to any number of Web radio stations while installing the Philips Media Manager software (or PMM) on our computer. You'll need to disable your Microsoft or other computer-based firewalls, relying instead on the firewall built into your wireless router. (Otherwise, open ports 49152 to 65535 for the SL300i.)

The value of the Internet audio and video should not be underestimated. You can use the many theme-based radio stations from Live365.com, Andante, MP3.com, Playhouse Radio, or Yahoo's LaunchCast (among others) to sonically coordinate a dinner or dance party, and there's plenty there to entertain the kids, too. Yahoo and iFilm.com provide high-quality music videos and film trailers at up to 700 kbps. For radio, sound quality proved remarkably listenable, with most but not all stations broadcasting in stereo, free of the swishy artifacts that plague much online audio. Online services also include Internet gaming.

With respect to streaming your media files, the SL300i sees only the files or folders you've selected for it. Within the PMM--and right from your living room--you can sort music by artist, genre, album, or song, or select slideshow mode for viewing your JPEG digital photos. Full-screen mode expands JPEG images and video streams to literally fill your screen, a nice change from JPEG-friendly DVD players that render a digital photo as a tiny box within a huge black frame.

Unlike the pricier SL400i, the SL300i has no display, so you'll be dependent on your TV and the unit's onscreen display for navigating to available content. But you can manage, right from the well-designed remote, all Internet content and even programming from multiple networked PCs. Coolest of all--while one person is remotely accessing content from a PC's hard drive or the broadband Internet connection, the home PC remains fully usable by other members of the household. A total of two analog stereo audio outputs lets you feed a tape deck or CD recorder in addition to your TV or audio receiver.

Philips is actively updating its services and its software, and the SL300i will periodically update its firmware--a cool feature designed to keep the unit technologically shipshape, running ever more smoothly and accommodating ever more formats. --Michael Mikesell

10. Philips DVDR615 DVD Recorder

Amazon Product Description

High on convenience, low on hassles, Philips' DVDR615 progressive-scan DVD player/recorder gives you a simple way to share your home videos with others, relieve your VCR of its regular TV taping duties, and enjoy quality home cinema presentations on standard or high-definition televisions. Using the model's extensive inputs--including an i.Link digital video jack--you can transfer and assemble your most treasured camcorder footage, archive all your old video tapes, or burn video from your PC straight to high-capacity DVD--up to an amazing 8 hours per disc side using either DVD+R or rewritable DVD+RW.



The DVDR615 features progressive-scan technology, which enables compatible TVs to display images at double the frequency of standard TVs, minimizing flicker and making the picture easier on your eyes.

The DVDR615 also features a disc manager that allows instant viewing of all recorded discs, storing contents details for up to 9,000 titles across up to 999 discs. You can also use the DVDR615 like a VCR, burning televised programs directly to disc using VCR Plus+ simplified programming. Recording functions include favorite scene selection, automatic/manual chapter marker insertion, selectable index pictures, selectable background picture, append, divide, and "fit to space."

DVD+RW discs require no finalizing--you can record, eject, and play them with minimal fuss, thanks to "background formatting." This feature, which lowers total burning time, is an advantage over the "dash" formats. Other DVD+RW advantages include on-disc content editing and multisession writing. And, through DVD+RW and DVD+R's compatibility with most existing DVD players, they're a great way for you to share your special memories with family and friends.

But the DVDR615 is also a first-rate DVD player, featuring progressive-scan video outputs, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround sound passthrough, MP3 CD playback (CD-R/CD-RW), and compatibility with most DVD media (including video-mode DVD-R and DVD-RW).

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVDR615 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Top-of-the-line interlaced component-video inputs and outputs (the output is switchable with the progressive-scan output) help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts from component-video sources and on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video inputs and outputs bring compatibility with nearly any video component and television monitor. Audio inputs consist of 2-channel analog jacks with 24-bit/96 kHz analog-to-digital conversion and Dolby Digital 2.0 audio compression (compression is non-defeatable). Video conversion, to and from digital, is performed by high-quality 10-bit, 54 MHz converters.

Two sets of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's coaxial digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do all that it says it does.
I was very disappointed to find that this recorder could not read all the formats consistently. It could read one dvd+ but not another, one dvd-, but not another, one svcd but not another, etc. I had bought it with expectation that it could read all the formats if they were recorded correctly and this was not the case. I had to return it. Otherwise, setup was easy. My old APEX player, which was 1/3 the price, reads everything without a hitch. Glad I didn't part with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good machine
I haven't had any problems with my machine and have been pleased with the quality. The video is good all the way to the 8 hr mode. It is easy to hook up and navigate around with the remote. The onscreen menu is a bit awkward so you need to keep your user manual close by until you get the hang of things. Overall I am glad I chose this machine over the panasonic, as this machine is more compatable with most DVD players on the market. I was considering the panasonic model but the compatability issue was too much of a risk. So far the discs I have made with this machine have played in every other DVD player I've tried them in.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pulled, Despite Horrific Exp w/the 985
For some inexplicable reason, I just decided that I would buy this after multiple rounds of suffering with the 985. So I ordered this and then packed up my 985 and sent it back to the factory for a second time.

Meanwhile, when this was delivered, I had a bit of a hassle with it because I plugged it into my digital receiver and got 'no signal' when trying to monitor the recording. Also, I wanted to have an S connection. Well, finally got it working by moving to EXT2.

Anyway, to my amazement, I have not had a single recording fail, and I've done a ton of them since purchasing a couple months ago. Never once have I seen DISC ERROR or have I had to wipe the disc. So I was surprised to read the other accounts which sound like 985-like behavior. Lots of the online disc ordering places will send you sample packs now so you can try different brands. I got mine from rima.com. One last note: I make all my recordings to RW and then take them to my G5 and make copies onto -Rs, so I can't really speak to the long-standing problems with +Rs.

1-0 out of 5 stars I tried top and bottom Philips DVD Recorders
The DVDR615 was better left in the store I also tried the DVDR80/17, top dog of the Philips line. As stated by other reviewers "when" it would write a disk "maybe and just maybe" it could read it. This goes for both of the machines. I upgraded the firmware three times all together and still no good they offer this online service. If they got it right before the sale maybe they would not have to upgrade so often. I gave up after 5 bad recordings and one good one on the 615. On the 80 I only lost 7 out of 15 DVD recorded. At about $2 per item or more DVDs don't come cheap but the troubles do. I will give Philips an A+ on their customer service, they are really helpful and do a great job they get a lot of practice. I just wish I had not gotten to know them almost by voice. I go to order a different brand because the DVD recorder is in my house to stay just not a Philips.

2-0 out of 5 stars I took it back to the store for a refund
I bought (and returned) a Philips DVDR615/17. (...)

It was a beautiful machine and it has a lot of nice features. It made beautiful disks...when it made disks.

I usually record on DVD+RW and I should have had a clue that things weren't going to go well when there was a preprinted form in the box telling me how to wipe a +RW disk, if the machine suddenly decided it couldn't read it.

Well, it decides that A LOT! You might go back to add an hour at the end of 4 other hours that this same machine already recorded...and suddenly it can't read it.

But, more disgusting, on just about every disk (and I tried several brands), it went "disk error" after a couple of minutes of recording and ruined the disk. If you erased it (using the secret disk wiping procedure) and started over, it usually recorded. But, that's not too practical if you want to timer record. In fact, I NEVER made a successful timer recording. (And, even if you got a non-timer recording, the machine might just forget how to read that same disk a few minutes later.)

I tried contacting Philips support to see if there was a firmware flash or something to correct this, but the only response I got referred me to an 800 number that turned out to be "Out of Warrantee Support", who wanted to charge me (...) just to talk to me, even though I had only had the goofy thing a few days. I think not.

So, back to the store it went.

If that one problem didn't exist, this would've been a great machine, so if they ever fix it, somebody let me know. ... Read more

Amazon Product Description

Offering strong video performance with a depth of less than 3 inches, Philips' high-definition-ready, active-matrix TFT LCD 15PF9936 is stylish enough and small enough for prominent placement in any room--or any wall--of your house. The 15-inch TV offers high brightness (450 cd/m2) and high contrast (400:1), as well as an integrated TV tuner for cable or broadcast reception of all your favorite programs. Its lightning-quick 16 ms response time guarantees seamless viewing even with rapid-screen-change video games. 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 screen.



Philips' Dynamic Contrast technology optimizes the contrast of the picture by stretching the white, gray, and black levels.
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 15PF9936's comes outfitted with Digital Crystal Clear III technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast and advanced, 10-bit processing. Further, the DCDi chip by Faroudja enhances resolution by eliminating the stair-step jagged edges often seen on progressive-scan displays.

The 15PF9936's three-line digital comb filter further enhances resolution 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).

A feature called Active Control continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction. AutoChron automatically sets the right time of day and maintains it with digital precision through brownouts, power failures, and even daylight savings time adjustments. AutoPicture lets you change--at the touch of a button--the picture settings (color, tint, contrast, etc.) for various types of programming, including sports, movies, multimedia (games), or weak signals.

AutoSound allows you to select from three factory-set controls and a personal control that you set according to your preferences. The three factory-set controls (Voice, Music, and Theatre) let you enhance the particular program you are watching. Incredible Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any two speakers, while the audio volume leveler (AVL) keeps the TV sound at an even level for a more consistent, comfortable sound.

Auto Color, one of the features of Active Control, measures the color content of the incoming signal and adjusts it according to predefined ideal values.

Inputs include two component-video (one HD and one standard-definition), one S-video, one RF coaxial audio/video, and two composite-video connections, as well as a VGA computer input with internal scaling, which accepts signals up to SXGA (1,280 x 1,024, from 56 to 85 Hz). A stereo analog audio output facilitates hookup with a surround receiver or integrated amplifier.

The supplied infrared remote control works your TV and other remote-controlled devices such as VCRs, DVD players, cable converters, and satellite receivers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good experience
I purchased my Phillips thru Amazon and got the same set made in China that others have had problems with. I picked the set because of its compact size for a kitchen countertop. It has been a flawless performer and the picture is first rate. Others who have seen this set operate have purchased similar sets with no issues. While this is my first Philips set it will not be my last. Besides, try to find electronics not made in China or Taiwan these days!

1-0 out of 5 stars Screen Failure
My Philips 15PF9936 15" LCD TV is a dud. The screen worked for a brief time before dying on me. It's electric board was replaced and it worked beautifully for a whole twelve hours before blacking out and dying once more - I had good enough sound but no picture. Perhaps someone should inform Philips that Tvs are for viewing as well as listening. I am seeking a refund. I will not buy a Philips set again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Control
I bought and returned two samples of this set due to a failed screen. This occured in both sets after only two weeks of use. They are made in China and quality control is nonexistent. I bought the set because of the great features and it did have a good picture (while it worked) especially with Progressive DVD. This was my first purchase of a Philips TV and will be my last. After the second return, I purchased a Panasonic 14" and have had no trouble. The Panasonic has much higher quality of construction (made in Japan) and is very reliable. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips DVDR72 DVD recorder gives you full-featured DVD play and record options in a sleek package. Record your favorite TV programs and movies to DVD+R/+RW discs with the touch of a button. Or set it up to record using VCR Plus+ numbers found in local television listings. Plus, you can play almost all formats of digital media: DVD, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW, SVCD, VCD, CD, and CD-R/RW. It'll play back discs packed with hours of MP3s, too.

Four record modes give you the option of filling a single DVD+R/+RW with up to 6 hours of VCR-quality video, or one hour with the highest digital quality. Its progressive-scan capabilities allow for the best picture possible when connected to an analog TV, but hook it up to an ED (enhanced-definition) or HD (high-definition) television and you'll get a more filmlike experience with less flicker and sharper images. A motion-compensated noise filter helps improved picture quality by further removing digital artifacts to create sharper, clearer images.

The DVDR72 is loaded with connections for an entry-level player and recorder. On the rear of the unit you get one each of RF, composite video, S-video, stereo audio, and component video inputs, an identical set of outputs, and a coaxial digital audio out. Up front you'll find another set of composite inputs, as well as S-video and i.LINK (FireWire) for connecting to a camcorder, PC, or other device. The component-video inputs and outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible televisions.

If you just shot some video with your camcorder, use these jacks to connect directly to the DVD recorder to instantly create a DVD of your footage. Two-channel Dolby Digital encoding will give your videos great digital stereo sound. There's even basic editing capabilities for your home movies so you can make your videos perfect before you burn. You can also link up to your VCR to convert your video tapes to longer-lasting DVDs.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The VCR's 4-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, 19-micron heads deliver the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. Other features include 1-touch recording, timer recording, auto head cleaning, and auto repeat playback (great for trade shows and presentations). You can even copy from DVD to VHS tape, providing the DVD is not Macrovision copy-protected--a great idea for sharing your disc-based home videos with friends and family who don't yet have DVD players.

Video connections include front- and rear-panel composite-video inputs and rear-panel RF coaxial video in and out jacks--perfect for either spontaneous hookups (like a camcorder or second VCR) or permanent connections (as with a cable box or DVR). Outputs include a single composite-video output for DVD/VCR video signals and DVD-only outputs for component-video (switchable for 480i and 480p, depending on your TV) and S-video.

A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio from both the DVD player and the VCR to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's coaxial digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: virtual surround sound simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

Playback options include single-disc resume, which lets you pick-up where you left off on your current DVD (not applicable for MP3 or JPEG CDs), disc-lock parental controls, and picture zoom for magnification of select images.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best stereo i have ever purchased
this is by far, the best stereo i have ever bought. with it's 330 Watts of power, and it's 5-disc CD changer, it's an awesome buy. with the wOOx subwoofers, you get exelent bass sound, and with high volumes, and high ammounts of bass, the subwoofer bounces around, it's cool. I use the gameport to plug in my Xbox to it, so i get great surround sound, with two 6.5 inch woofers, two 6.5 inch wOOx subwoofers, and two 2 inch ferro-liquid cooled tweeters, instead of the small, 2 inch TV speakers. there is only three problems i have encountered in my several weeks of ownership of this stereo, all of which are easily solved; it's a big stereo, and it's hard to find a place to put it, the gigantic speakers make my TV look a little dinky, and it doesn't play cassettes, which is no big deal, seeing it has an auxilary input on the back, which allows me to plug any old cassette player into it, so i can play my Led Zeppelin cassettes ;) if you can afford it, and you want a top-end stereo, i strongly suggest you buy this stereo. 330 watts is more than enough power to fill almost any room. and with it's "Incredible Surround" setting, you can create surround sound for almost any room. unless the room you are planning on filling is the size of a movie theatre, you should be good with this stereo. before i bought this stereo, i looked at the Philips FW-C577, which is much like this stereo, but without the wOOx subwoofers, and a slightly smaller prise tag. it costs about $50 less. but, if you like great bass, i suggest you bite the bullet, grab an extra fifty bucks, and buy this stereo. much better sound. i checked it out the other one at Wal-mart, and this one is better.

Amazon.com Product Description

The Magnavox MRV640 is a first-rate DVD player and recorder, a state-of-the-art source component that's also fixed to displace your VCR. Now you can archive your home movies and edit favorite scenes to share with loved ones: use recordable DVD+R and re-recordable DVD+RW media for compiling home-video highlights or for storing TV programs, then mail them to loved ones or, with TV programs, watch them at your convenience. The MRV640 stores up to 8 hours of audio and video at varying quality levels, from sub-VHS quality to VHS/S-VHS quality, DVD quality, and full DV quality.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the MRV640 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The MRV640 also performs 3:2 pulldown detection. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24-frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; reverse 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

Top-of-the-line component-video inputs and outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video inputs/outputs bring compatibility with nearly any input source and television. One each RF coaxial video input and output simplify hookup with antennas, older VCRs, and cable boxes. The unit's front panel sports a set of inputs for your temporary AV connections.
