Amazon.com Product Description

There's no rule that stereo systems have to be big and bulky, as this trendy microsystem from Philips aptly proves. The wall-mountable MC235 is a mere 3.78 inches thick--bigger than a credit card but far smaller than the average CD player and speaker combo. Yet the system still packs dynamic audio performance inside its narrow body, with such features as digital sound control and digital dynamic bass boost (DDBB). The former invites the user to choose between different sound settings, including optimal, jazz, rock, techno, and classic, and then automatically adjusts the sound balance and frequencies to create the most favorable setup for the chosen music style. DDBB, on the other hand, enhances the bass at low, mid, and high volumes to deliver rich, deep sounds, an important consideration for a small system such as this.

A closer look at the microsystem reveals that the CD spins vertically to save space. The thin profile also includes a digital AM/FM tuner and two detachable 5-watt speakers that can mount individually or stay attached to the entire unit. The CD player, which is compatible with CD-RW discs in addition to traditional audio CDs, offers all the normal CD functions, such as search, repeat, shuffle, and programming. Additional features include both sleep and wakeup timers and an Eco mode that conserves power when the unit is in standby.

Amazon.com Product Description

Watch movies the way they were meant to be viewed with the MPD820 portable DVD player from Magnavox. This lightweight player features an 8-inch LCD display with a theater-like 16:9 aspect ratio. A rechargeable battery can run the player for up to 3 hours, and you can plug it in anywhere for longer viewings. The MPD820 plays DVDs, CDs, MP3s, and more, so you can bring along all your favorite videos and music.

The screen on the MPD820 is a thin-film transfer (TFT) display that generates clear images without adding unnecessary bulk to the portable player. While you can enjoy movies everywhere you go with the built-in screen, you also can connect the player to any television to watch your DVDs on a bigger screen. The MPD820 features both composite and S-video connections to link the player to another TV.

The MPD820 plays DVDs and CDs (including discs burned on a computer), as well as VCDs. You can also play MP3s from CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and view digital JPEG photos. The MPD820 features built-in stereo speakers and dual headphone jacks for either private or shared listening. For even fuller sound, hook the player up to an audio receiver through the digital optical audio connection to experience rich surround sound.

The MPD820 can go anywhere you go. Use it at home by plugging the player into a wall outlet, or run it in the car with the DC power adapter. After watching a movie, the battery can be quickly and easily recharged with the included charger.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice player
I've had this portable DVD player for only a month and I have been quite pleased with it. The 8" TFT screen is quite nice. It provides excellent picture quality and viewing from just about any angle. Plus, with the larger screen size, two or three people can watch a movie without any problems. Color and brightness controls are easy to access and the factory settings are great as it.

For a portable player, the sound is excellent with out headphones. When I previewed it at Best Buy, I was amazed how loud it can get on its on. With headphones, the sounds is clear and crisp even without expensive noise canceling headphones. Plus, there are two ear phone jacks so two people can plug in and listen. The remote is a nice size, not to small, not too big. So far, battery life is excellent. Another good feature, is that this unit already comes with a car charger (some other brands do not).

So far, only three minor complaints. One, you can only fast forward, reverse or do slow motion with the remote. For some reason they left these buttons out on the player. In addition, there is no S-video output as advertised nor is there an option for input (so you cant plug in your playstation or x-box). Honestly, this doesn't detract from the player because it does exactly what I want...play movies when I'm traveling or on the go. Overall, its a great player with crisp, clear picture and sound. Magnivox makes another winner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than Average Picture w. Good Viewing Angle
Picture: This is a widescreen unit, which means most widescreen DVDs will play without black bars over and under the image. The TFT LCD display is crisp, with good horizontal (side-to-side) viewing angle, which is a real-life advantage for backseat passengers in a vehicle. Predictably, vertical (up-down) viewing angle is rather less, so you may find yourself tilting the screen occasionally to find the best picture if you change your viewing position (e.g. slouching down or sitting up straight). You can adjust the color and brightness, but the factory settings are subjectively optimal.

Sound: The sound through either of the two headphone jacks is excellent. I had expected the sound from the tiny stereo speakers just below the screen to buzzy, but it is surprisingly clear. Obviously, the laws of physics have not been repealed and they produce nothing approaching bass, but the articulation of dialog is crisp, which is much more important for movies. Another pleasant surprise: There was no buzzing or breakup even at their relatively polite "top volume."

Other observations: The case is aluminum and plastic, with an attractive brushed metal top and a generally solid feel. The screen feels very securely attached via two hinges. The removable battery included attaches to the back of the unit. The power cord is a little over seven feet, so you can't range too far from an outlet when using AC. Thermally, it stays cooler than a laptop, which is a plus for travelers, though the transformer in the AC cord gets quite warm.

A couple of gripes: 1.) The remote is nothing special, with white-on-light gray lettering being harder to read than necessary (the slide out battery drawer for the lithium button cell is a nice ergonomic touch); 2.) While you can change scenes without the remote, you need it to fast-forward or skip back within a scene. Doh! This omission alone costs a full star. Also, the disc handling mechanism is buzzy getting up to speed, then settles down to the barely-audible whirring common to DVD players everywhere. Sound-deadening adds cost, weight and thickness, so this is a logical and defensible design tradeoff.

As another reviewer noted, this unit is clearly sourced from the same manufacturer in China that sells entry-level players under the Mintek brand. One might read Mintek reviews for hints about reliability.

I have enjoyed watching movies on the MPD820 and find this is one entry-level DVD player that doesn't seem cheap at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars a Mintek player with a name change
I have compared the 8-inch Magnavox with the 7-inch 1770 model from Mintek and they are very similar. The switches and jacks are all in the same places, and the battery configuration is identical. The power switch is exactly the same. I suspect that Magnavox got their players from Mintek, then put their more recognizable name on them. Since Mintek is a very small company with no track record, you might want to check out their reviews before you buy this player. I've had the Magnavox for 2 weeks, and the Mintek for 2 months, and so far they both work fine. But when you buy a big name brand, you expect that it is more reliable than the unknown maker. In this case, I don't think that assumption is justified. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. If you want this player, BestBuy.com has it for $350, with free shipping, a nice case, and 2 sets of lightweight Sony headphones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good so far
i bought this about 2 weeks ago, watched 3-4 movies so far, picture is great, even from an angle, snound through the speakers isn't very good, but only because its small compared to the room, so it doesnt really fill it up, but its awsome with headphones, i didn't have to adjust anything volume/picture-wise (base, treble, light, dark etc.) you can't fast-forward/reverse on the unit, only change scenes, but you can from the remote, although the buttons on the unit seem kind of cheep, and it's pretty loud when loading, and kind of loud when playing, but with headphones, not loud enough (when playing) to notice/care. so all in all, im pretty satisfied, but still uncertain as to whether it will last a long time, but it seems like it, so i'll keep it as long as it doesnt brake. ...

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.

4-0 out of 5 stars No Problems
I bought this product for my mother last Christmas (2003) and she's never had a problem with it. I set it up, works perfectly, sounds good, both DVD and VCR look good. The speakers have long cables, everything was very easy to connect. My mother has used it at least twice a week for almost a year now and she says it's still going strong. I'm sorry to the other folks that had so much trouble with theirs, but not ALL of these machines are faulty.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this.
I thought this combo would be a great deal because of the price, the ease of use, etc, but it isn't because it doesn't work. My problem was the DVD player decided to freeze at random points on all my DVDs - even brand new ones. I'm returning it today.

1-0 out of 5 stars Once again, Magnavox stinks
Beware of this product, as the DVD player will stop working whenever you least expect it. Stay away from Magavox for quality products!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not bad ... considering it doesn't WORK!
Just bought this today at Target (1/7/2003). Going to return it tomorrow. It promoises a nice all in one but like several of the other posters, something doesn't work on it. In my case, the VCR. I bought this on a spur of the moment without doing any research. Got home, set it up, went to Amazon to see the reviews, ... wish I hadn't bought it. It sounds good enough, though. And if everything worked well, I might have kept it longer. But with the on-line reviews here and it not working out of the book, I'll have owned it for less than 24 hours. *sigh* My recommendation is to NOT buy this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't get this one, you'll regret it!!!
I purchased this system from Target for Christmas. Everything worked except for the suround sound when it was in DVD mode. I called Magnavox about the problem, and their solution was to route the DVD signal through the VCR and use it in VCR mode. Well, that takes care of the sound, but viewing the DVD through the VCR diminishes the video quality and doesn't allow you to use the DVD functions on the remote! I took it back to the store and got my money back. I spent a little bit more money and got a fantastic Sony system instead. I'm disappointed with Magnavox on this one. I usually buy Magnavox products, but not after this. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Capture, edit, and preserve precious memories with the Philips DVDR75 DVD player/recorder. Using the model's extensive inputs--including an i.Link digital video jack--you can transfer and assemble your most treasured camcorder footage, archive old video tapes, or burn video from a PC straight to high-capacity DVD (up to 6 hours per disc side using either DVD+R or DVD+RW). The unit's onboard Virtual Time Base Corrector ensures better-than-original copies from old video tapes.

You can also use the DVDR75 like a VCR, burning televised programs directly to disc using helpful VCR Plus+ programming data. Recording functions include safe record, one-touch record (OTR), track append, track divide, track erase, automatic/manual chapter marker insertion, disc write protection, favorite scene selection, index picture screen for instant content overview, and Selectable Index Pictures.

The DVDR75 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 DVDR75 stands ready to deliver the full potential of 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- and S-video inputs and outputs bring compatibility with nearly any video component and television monitor. Audio inputs consist of two-channel analog jacks with 16-bit analog-to-digital conversion and Dolby Digital 2.0 audio compression (compression is non-defeatable).

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 (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) 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: 3D Surround simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on a TV).

3-0 out of 5 stars you can do much better for a little more money
OK. I already owned a Sony dvd recorder. But I needed another unit for the bedroom so decided to try the Philips. Took it back after two days and got another Sony.

Problems:

- doesn't read and write many formats
- the menus use strange hieroglyphic symbols - I for one prefer
menus in plain English
- you use the remote for certain things, then have to go up to the unit to read the display for other things
- interesting bugs - for example, half the time, if I wanted to record a two hour show it worked fine. The other half of the time, it would turn off after recording after only 10 seconds. Tech Support said this MIGHT be fixed in their current software upgrade... they'll send it and I should have it in about 10 days.
- the manual was really poor. It was at least in English, but was very vague.

Nope. I dont think so. For just a little more money, you can have a MUCH better unit.

4-0 out of 5 stars I Don't know what all the negative Hoopla is all about!
I just received this unit from Amazon.com a few days ago. After reading all these reviews, I figured this DVD Recorder was going to be a real lemon. So far, I do not have one complaint.

I have recorded two TV shows, and a converted a VHS tape to DVD using DVD+RW Discs. Not one problem to complain about.

One complaint I noticed in other reviews was the owner's manual.
I read the manual from cover to cover. Again, I don't understand the issues others have with this manual.

The recorded DVD's play on two of my three DVD players. The one that it doesn't play on is at least 3 years old.

After using this recorder for a few days, I can't figure out all the bad reviews this device has received.

Don't be afraid to purchase this machine based on all the negative reviews. I normally don't write reviews, but after reading all the bad reviews that this recorder received, I felt the need to write something positive about this product.

This recorder is well worth the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars STOP! DON'T THROW YOUR MONEY OUT THE WINDOW!
I have owned this model for one year. I have had problems from very early on, except past the allowable return time from Best Buy and have contacted Philips customer service countless times, each time they gave me a different possible solution. I could write a whole seperate negative review on their customer service and how hard it is to get through, understand the rep. etc. The machine is worthless, all these features but they don't work. Most of the time it won't even PLAY a Disney DVD movie, let alone record a tv show. I have followed every suggestion, including using only up to 2x speed dvd media, only +R, professional cleaning, setting the unit level, installing software updates...nothing works. This was supposed to be the high end unit to buy at $600 and it is truly a piece of junk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good So Far!!!
Shortly after purchasing it, the predecessor to this model proved to be a nightmare in every possible manner. After being sent to Phillips for repairs under warranty, no improvements were noticed. So we cajoled the national chain that we purchased from to exchange (we paid the price differential) for the newer Phillips DVDR75.

Several months have passed and countless hours of +R DVDs have been burned from my DirecTV / UltimateTV (similar to TiVo). I put the DVDR75 model through a demanding workout early on to reveal any existing technical glitches right away. What a difference this model has made! No more defects, ruined DVD blanks, or poor dependability. I tend to record on 6 hour mode and have been pleased with the resolution and overall results.

So maybe Phillips got things right this time! I would recommend this model to anyone seeking a proven work horse.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful device...
This is the second DVD recorder by Philips that I have purchased. I was happy with the first generation recorder, but I have been ecstatic about this one. The recorder functions exactly as described, and can record from virtually any source, including VHS, camcorder, TV, satellite, etc. Some reviewers have complained about not being able to record to certain discs, but this is cured by buying the CORRECT discs! The recorder will NOT record to DVD-R, DVD-RW, or DVD-RAM. It will always record to DVD+R and DVD+RW. If you follow the instructions in the manual and buy the correct media, you will be very happy with this recorder. Highly recommended! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you see this on eBay, buy it!
I did. Then I read another review that here that talked about its limited remote control functions, and I got worried. Fortunatly, the reviewer was way off base. The neck strap remote is unique and has volume control, skip, and scan modes. The unit does remember the last song played as well. There is a minimum amount of wires to fuss with because the ear phones are plugged into the top of the neck strap. I'm really happy with this MP3 player.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get this for ease of use and style
Ease of use is best to describe the player. It has a drag and drop interface so there is no need to use a program to transfer music. There is no copy protection on the player so music can be copied to another computer with ease. The remote on the player controls play/pause, skip to forward, skip backward, volume up and volume down. The player resumes playback at the start of the last song played. As for the controls on the player, it's simple as there is one switch. The off/charge position and the playback.download position. I never worry about batteries as I leave it charging in the USB port and when I flip the switch it shows up as a removable storage device. It comes with an external AAA battery pack the provides 10 hours of music and when attached looks like it was built as one and not an attachment. I don't mind the omission of the lcd screen on the player because it really is liberating to not worry about renaming songs. I use this player for the gym over my ipod as it is so much lighter and I put my top 25-30 songs on it and don't worry about changing artists, albums, etc. The sound from the player is amazing. It doesn't have an equalizer and it still sounds better than my 3rd gen 20gb ipod and my old samsung yp-30sh (the key ring replaced this unit). I really was shocked by the sound quality. In terms of looks it is top notch. Everyone comments on how great it looks when they see it. Having said that I bought the KEY005 and not the KEY006 because I would never where one around my neck cause I think it looks stupid to do so. It is also rugged as I have dropped it on the treadmill and there were no chips or dents. In the office if I need to take a file home I just delete a track from the player and drag and drop the document. The only minus is there is no ability to scan through songs. I don't mind this anymore as I just turn on the player and forget about it. The only item I replaced was the headphones. Here is a link of the ones I got with a short cord and work perfectly for me: ..... In summary, I have owned this player for 3 weeks and this is the perfect player for the gym, office and short commutes.

5-0 out of 5 stars wow!
i got this mp3 player for my birthday and it rocks! i love it so much. and how cheap! i got it on sale! it doesnt skip ever or there is nothing ever rong with it. the only problem is that i dont like how there is no screen and all the controls are on the neck strap. but for the person that sayd it was really bad. its not. if its not playing, are you holding the play button down for 2 seconds? is it charged all the way? if your looking for a really good mp3 player at a really good price i recommend this one! trust me!

4-0 out of 5 stars cool gadget
I love the MP3 key. I gave it 4 stars because i had to fork out an additional $15 at best buy for a car adapter. I would also like a fast forward/reverse feature, but I knew there was not one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Aways good to go!
I have been using this unit for about two years now. I had the neck strap go on me after I accidently pulled on it while carrying it. Philips replaced it within a few days! The first thing that you need to know is that it is not a PDA or a Juke box. There is not display or fancy EQ features etc. It is however, a great unit for those who wish to keep a low profile while listening to MP3's or WMA's. The sound quality is excellent. This can be improved upon by using a higher grade headphone then the pair supplied with the unit. I use full over ear style when bike riding in the fall. As far as usage, it wins over other units hands down. By simply touching the right spot on my shirt, the unit allows me to control track selection, volume or start/stop features. I often wear it while shopping. I can set volume levels so that I am jamming, and still able to talk with store assistants. If you need alot of bells and whistles, skip this player. If you want portability, a very cool design, and ease of use, this is the game right here. Pro: light weight, easy to wear under clothing. Neck strap provides good control features. Easy to download from PC Cons: no expandability, but new units have 256 meg capacity. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Now you can view your movies, TV, and personal computing on an epic scale. Philips' 60PP9363H Epic Series high-definition projection television offers compatibility with progressive-scanned 480p and full high-definition 1080i video signals, all of which benefit from the set's wealth of picture-enhancing technologies. Designed to meet the demands of curved CRT faceplates, Philips' 35-point convergence brings with it the accuracy of digital technology for flawless convergence of red, green, and blue electron guns and a superb picture with no colored haloes.

If a video image remains stationary, it can eventually burn a permanent after-image into the screen. Automatic Phosphor Aging Compensation (APAC) periodically shifts your television picture in increments that are tiny, but still large enough to blur image retention. 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 glass comb filters for a difference you can really see.

EyeFidelity gives you a choice between two different scanning techniques: progressive and interlaced scanning. Progressive scanning doubles the number of visible picture lines per field by displaying all picture frame lines at once, eliminating line flicker. Interlaced mode reduces annoying motion artifacts and helps smooth jagged lines sometimes seen on images of curved and angled surfaces.

The set's dual-tuner picture-in-picture lets you monitor one TV channel while simultaneously watching another. Its 10-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. The set uses large, 4 x 6-inch stereo speakers and also features an auto volume limiter to minimize drastic level changes between, say, a TV program and its commercials.

Connections include 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, 1 HD component-video inputs, 1 high-definition PC input (RGB+H/V component-video), and a DVI-HDTV 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 simplifies hookup of a camcorder, gaming console, or VCR.

The 60PP9363H's protective screen filter helps prevent accidental damage to the delicate front lenticular screen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Replacement Keyboard
Almost thought the webtv would be thrown over the fence after contacting Sony and ascertaining that Sony no longer has replacement keyboards. This unit is actually better than the original; a bit larger and with convenient thumb indentations for ease in holding the keyboard. Price was actually less than the previous board purchased through Sears. Alas, the purchase of a Dell shall have to wait.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Customer Service
I ordered this keyboard as a gift to my mother, but due to shipping problems, I needed to track the order down with Web TV the provider for Amazon. Not only did they answer me within minutes, they immediately sent out a replacement until they could resend the original order. The two guys who helped me were Matt and Dave in Customer service. They were fast and polite. Within a couple of days my mother received the temp keyboard, with a beautiful note and a follow up of the original ordered keyboard projected delivery date. The Web TV customer service is OUTSTANDING! They are the example all companies should follow :)

3-0 out of 5 stars SONY W250 Degrades with Time
I purchased Both the set top box & the wireless keyboard 3 Yrs. ago & worked very good;BUT, it is Degrading. Keys stick & set top Box is Failing. I tried to reach Sony but to No Avail.!! I can't seem to find Any Sony W-250 units. I would like to know if they still make them?? The ONLY set top box I can find is that New MSN-TV which the keyboard is 1/2 the size! This may push me into Finally Buying a computer!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Webtv is the best.
And this keyboard does it all. I have the Magnavox version of the same keyboard. It works with webtv classic or webtv plus. I can flip the screen to go back to the tv program or move my pip around the screen while I am surfing the net or adding pictures to my web pages. I don't know how people put up with computers. There are no pop up ads with webtv and virtually no maintanance because all upgrades are free. I use a phillips keyboard and remote with my sony webtv plus unit with no problem. Also controls the volume and power of my tv. You can buy the newer version of this phillips keyboard from me. And it comes with a 90 day warranty.Happy surfing.

4-0 out of 5 stars late to the gate... artist
although, many of my friends are big in the electronic industry, I have resisted being "taken in." I was the same with cable TV... now many of my favorite shows are on cable-only networks. Feeling I was missing a major resource, I finally accepted a WebTV from a friend. I am a big fan of the TV remote (am I alone?)... and love the wireless keyboard- though it tends to skip letters when I type too fast. Still, its like a super remote, and its been a very painless way for me to become familiar with the internet. I am on this site to see about purchasing one for my mother for Xmas- even more stubborn than me. Cross your fingers. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The snazzy DVP620VR from Philips lets you watch movies from VHS tape or from premium-quality progressive-scan DVD, view digital-image slide shows, listen to audio CDs, or play your homemade MP3 CDs through your living-room speakers--all from one affordable, space-saving device. The Philips DVP620VR also lets you record off-air in hi-fi stereo sound and watch your camcorder or hook up your gaming console through its convenient front-panel audio/video inputs.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVP620VR 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 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.

Watch movies from VHS tape or from premium-quality progressive-scan DVD, view digital-image slide shows, listen to audio CDs with crystal-clear sound, or play homemade MP3 CDs through living-room speakers--all from one affordable, space-saving device. The Philips DVD750VR also lets you record off-air in hi-fi stereo sound and watch a camcorder or hook up a gaming console through its convenient front-panel audio/video inputs. Picture-CD functionality includes one-by-one playback and image zoom.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVD750VR stands ready to deliver the full potential of 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 DVD750VR also performs 3:2 pulldown. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture. S-video and shared DVD/VCR composite-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

A set 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. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: 3D sound simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on a TV).

The VCR's four-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. SQPB (quasi-S-VHS playback) lets you watch S-VHS tapes--which normally requires a special S-VHS VCR--at standard VHS resolution. Other features include timer recording, auto head cleaning, auto repeat playback (great for trade shows and presentations), high-speed search, and one-touch recording.

2-0 out of 5 stars Watch out if you use home made DVDs
Took some trial and error, but finally got it connected to my plasma tv. What I planned to use this for was for straightforward playback only. No trying to tape things while playing on DVD, no taping of broadcasts, and no fancy editing. Just pushing play.

The biggest surprise is that only original DVD-ROMs seem to play back without any issues. Almost all of my DVD+R's (recorded on the Philips DVDR985 no less) start to skip about 20 minutes into the film. I noticed that the same films on DVD+RW seem to play without any skips.

The skips look like simple jumps of a split second at first. Then the image suddenly freezes up in a multi-cascade manner. At first it happened when I was jumping ahead a chapter or two and when fast-forwarding. When I wanted to watch a movie straight through it did it again.

It must be something with this model. The same DVD+R discs play fine on my other Philips, on my Sony player, and on my computer.

Can't seem to find an answer as to why it skips so bad on DVD+Rs.

1-0 out of 5 stars A truly awful product
An awful product that will disappoint. I will never buy Philips again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor DVD Playback
I thought I got a great deal on this DVD/VCR Combo unit at $85.00. That is, until I actually tried to use it. The setup was easy enough. However, the first three DVD+Rs I tried to play skipped throughout the DVD and then eventually stopped playing. I had to eject the discs in order to reset it. I run my TV through my vcr so the unit has to be turned on in order for my TV to work. Maybe it was getting too hot but I did not have this problem with my old unit. I gave it two stars because I did not even try playing a video tape before I returned it to the store.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good price and good product
I have had this item for 2 months now and have watched numerous DVD's on my 55" hdtv. Works like a charm and has great picture quality. I have not attempted to do any type of recording, or even use the VHS yet.
There is a switch on the back where you can choose progressive scan or normal. I only used the progressive scan feature.

The main reason why I purchased this is because my HDTV is also a phillips (55PP9753). What I really need to get now is the home theather system.

Very happy with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy. Philips service is non-existent
I would not recommend this product to anyone. The remote is difficult to use. Their support is worse.

I bought this product and it broke the very first day of use. I put in a VCR tape in the machine. I had just watched this movie and rewound the tape that morning. I played a little bit of the tape and then tried to rewind it. It would not rewind and got stuck in the machine. It was flashing err 2. I called their support line. I got cut off twice and had to explain my problem to 3 different people. They could not help. They did not know what err 2 meant. The product was still under warranty as this was the same day I had purchased it. If I wanted it fixed, I had to send it to a repair center at my expense, even though it was brand new. A friend of mine got the tape removed and then it flashed err 3. The VCR part of this brand new machine was not usable.

I returned the product to the store. ... Read more
