1-0 out of 5 stars Crazy stuff mine went out 2
And after the warrenty i had to pay 70 more dollars to get it fixed. It started making a chirping noice when it was plugged in and had no picture, Just the chirping. VERY BADD TELEVISION.

1-0 out of 5 stars Never buy this TV
Great picture. Lousy TV. Mine quit working after 4 months. Conveniently 1 month after the full-coverage warranty. If you've read the other reviews you know to stay away from this and any Philips TV.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best 27" Standard TV
After looking over about 30 TVs in the 22" - 30" range in Best Buy, the choice was clear. This Philips TV has by far the sharpest image and the most vibrant color of any standard TV in the 27" range. The quadrasurf feature is great too - it lets you assign your favorite channels to programmable buttons so you can hop between channels with a single click. The quality of the set and its construction are very high, it has survived two moves without any problems. It has lots of connection options, even a headphone output on the side. I can't recommend this set highly enough. When the time comes to get a larger set, I'm definitely getting another Philips.

3-0 out of 5 stars High Pitched Noise
I bought an older model of this TV about 3 years ago, and I also have had problems with the high pitched noise it gives off. It's incredibly annoying and distracting when you're trying to watch a good show. The sound is of course most noticable when the volume is lower. I wouldn't buy another Phillips. Pay a little more money for a better brand!

3-0 out of 5 stars nice tv but horrible high pitched noise/ reflective screen
We bought this tv after our 20 yr old one quit. We were so excited to get a new one, did lots of research, and got this one at Best Buy. Compared to the Toshiba, which I really wanted, this had superior picture quality and sound. We got the set home, set it up, and almost immediately, this high-pitched noise comes from the back of the tv, and boy is it annoying! I called the company, who, after I convinced the noise was heard at least 10 feet away, (and over shows) recommended a local tv repair shop. I am so very disappointed with this noise. The only other complaint I have about it is the mirror-like screen - you can see nearly everything reflected back from the tv monitor, so we have to turn out some lights to be able to see the picture more clearly. Great tv otherwise. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great MP3 Player!
I've been waiting a long time for an MP3 player and after spending a lifetime looking at the many there are, I finally chose this one. I chose it because I liked the shape of it. It's easy and comfortable to hold. The only reason it got 4 stars and not five is because:
1)The headphones it comes with you shouldn't even try to use them. But then again, I was already planning on using my other ones.
2)You can't upgrade it. The memory that it comes with is it, there is no place to put a memory card in.
Other then that, it is wonderful. The carring case looks good and has no problems that I know of but I have never used them, I just put it in my pocket. I used to have a regular CD Player before this and it was so big and bulky I couldn't carry it around. Now I can have music anywhere I want because it is so compact. I use MP3 files and can hold between 20-25 songs. It all depends the size of the songs. You can also use WMA files but I don't know how to use that. The sound quality is great! With a large download into the MP3 Player, the battery life will soon diminish. But it does come with a battery charger. Although I was very dump and put a non chargeable battery in it and it spilled battery acid everywhere the first day I got it. The battery it comes with is rechargebale. It is a great MP3 Player and should serve most people's needs. ... Read more

The AZ3300 CD/radio boombox sports a stylish, integrated handle so your tunes can go anywhere you do. It comes with a remote control so you'll be able to switch tracks and adjust the volume even after settling into your favorite listening position.

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge "bang" for the bucks.
I am incredibly impressed with this product - so much so, I bought a second one. It plays mp3 files as well as wma files, which I didn't expect (wma, that is). The sound coming from the little box is beyond what I would consider acceptable for the money spent, and the way the remote is stored is really clever. NO COMPLAINTS at all, I just love it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice and sturdy boombox
Nice looks, cheaper than the equivelant Sony and does the job just as well. It's able to play my CD-R's and music burned from iTUNES.com (aac -mp4). It also has a nice little remote. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Looking for a full-size set that sounds good, looks good, and won't cost you a mint? Try Philips' silver, 27-inch 27PT5441, whose picture enhancements and suite of audio/video connections make for a true "must-see" TV. 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, including 1-button favorite-channel access.

Further refining an already stellar image is the 27PT5441's 2-line 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 component-video input grants optimum connection with a compatible DVD player, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate most other audio/video gear, from DVD players to satellite receivers, digital video recorders, video game consoles, cable boxes, and VCRs. You can choose between rear AV inputs and a set of side AV inputs for spontaneous hookups, including a side-panel headphone jack for private listening.

Other 27PT5441 features include a sleep and event timer, AutoPicture (which optimizes brightness, contrast, color, tint, and sharpness), and AutoSound (which lets you select settings for voice, music, movies, or custom). Incredible Surround simulates surround sound from the set's twin speakers (5 watts per channel x 2), while bass and treble controls let you adjust the sound to your taste.

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips 26PF9966 gives you a high-performance, widescreen (16:9) image from a casing with a depth of little more than 4 inches. The 26-inch perfectly flat 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 26PF9966'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.

Pixel Plus uses the power of the Pixel Plus processor to enhance every single pixel displayed. The result is razor-sharp pixels with incredible detail and depth. 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 2 composite-video connections, as well as a VGA computer input. A convenient side-panel input simplifies spontaneous hookups.

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.

Take control of your digital past and future with a home DVD recorder.

As a player, the Magnavox spins DVD-Video, audio CD, and recordable CD-R and CD-RW. An oversized LCD makes disc and timing data easy to read, while a host of connections--from component-video, composite-video, S-video, RF, and analog audio inputs and outputs, in addition to a coaxial digital-audio output--accommodate a range of audio and video sources. Conveniently, the unit's front panel sports a set of inputs for your temporary AV connections. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A defective front S-video input. Everything else is great.
I bought this DVD burner from a local Target. The machine is made in Hungary. After a month of trials, I've found the S-video input in the front (CAM 1) does not work and an expert has confirmed it. Fortunately, it has an S-video input in the back using EXT 2. This one works, so I've decided not to return this item to the store, a complicated process. Compared with Korea, Taiwan and China that have more than 20 years of experience in making the consumer electronics, Hungary is relatively new in the field and defects in the product are therefore understandably more common. DVD+R and DVD+RW from this machine can be played in my Sony DVD player, though the Sony's manual says it plays only DVD-R and DVD-RW. My Apex player can also play it. However, it cannot be played in my 1.5-year-old Sony notebook. The image quality of this DVD burner makes all VHS VCRs obsolete.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for time shifting tv shows
This is basically a Phillips DVR-75, with slight differences. I have both. So far it has worked perfectly, as has my Phillips. I have used only DVD+RW(Memorex) blanks and have not had one bad disk. I bought the disks on sale for less than a dollar a piece. These are the only DVD+RW units I have, so I don't know about compatability with other brands of players (I suspect the blank disks have more to do with that than the recorder.), but they play each other's disks.
I kept the manual on the coffee table for a week as I learned to program the first unit, but now it's second nature. These units do take some time to finish writing when turned off and to read and begin recording when the timer comes on (about 24 seconds to record, but I think that's just a characteristic of DVD recorders). I record LOTS of TV, so I use the 6-hour recording mode and the video is better than the 6-hour speed of my VCR's. The recorder will slightly enhance the video quality of the source, so when dubbing VHS tape to DVD, it actually improves the original.
I considered the Sony, but I bought both of these for less than the cost of one Sony, and am very satisfied.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magnovox DVD Recorder
Easy to use, works well, good quality recording - what's not to like.

4-0 out of 5 stars all good
I bought this recorder over the weekend, and have had absolutely no problems with it at all. I've been able to record from TV, VCR, and camcorder quite easily. It does exactly what I want it to do, and it was a steal at $350.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
I purchased this unit in December at WalMart. Of course, the price ($ 369) was attractive. However, by now I can only record from the AV inputs after burning a little piece from the TV input, so that the 630 will get in gear, and then changing inputs to the AV and burning what I really want. Otherwise the unit will commence to burn and shut down after about 1 minute.
If I try to burn with NoName discs (that are working just fine on my Pioneer 106) it will not go at all. = Useless ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect...
Pros: Size, Weight, Cost, Display, Battery Life, Records from Line/Opt/Mic, File xfer recorded mp3 to PC

Cons: (Very) low level electronic warble on mic recodings; Track Title doesn't scroll.

I upgraded the firmware immediately (v6.6 now) and downloaded the latest PC software (27mb download Philips Digital Music Manager v2.0), and have downloaded about 2gb of 96kbs mp3 files to the unit. The unit has not frozen up as reported by some folks. Once or twice a day, the unit may be "pausing" playback for 2-3 seconds, not sure.

I did experience "missing and out of order" tracks early on when I was comparing various formats and believe that an album of MP3Pro files caused the problem. I deleted all the files on the HDD100, re-ripped that CD at 96kbp standard mp3 (using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus 8.2) and re-updated to the HDD100. No problems since.

I compared 64kbps WMA, 128kbs MP3, and 96kbs MP3 for audio quality and believe that the 64kbs WMA lacked a little presence, and possibly had just a little less bass punch. The 128kbs had slightly better presence than the 96kbps MP3 (with good headphones and no ambient noise). The 128k format averaged 45mb for an album versus 30mb for the 96kbs MP3. I chose to start ripping my CD collection at 96kbps MP3 and am pleased with the tradeoff.

As mentioned by others, the Philips earphones were "throw aways". I tried a set of Etymotic ER-4P "audiofile" earphones, but prefer more bass than I could get even with the bass boost. I found my 20 dollar AIWA in-ear phones to give great bass with higher output than the ER-4P phones, but in-ear phones seem to get uncomfortable after a few hours.

(Someone was searching for the fast forward - half press and hold the >> button.)

I recorded singing and flute playing witht the internal mic with acceptable results. At high playback levels, a bothersome electronic warble is audible in the recordings during silences. For grabbing a recording it is fine, for better quality I'll drag my Tascam PocketStudio5, although I haven't tried line in recording (from better mics and a mixer) yet.

Someone complained about syncronization time. I don't feel it is too long. The DMM software seems very robust and works well although it could improve with a "maximize" feature.

It probably will be a keeper, but I have a few more days to decide. The only alternative I would choose is the iPod mini but that only has 4mb...

4-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad after upgrade
I'm in the UK, but the the same things apply. When I got my HDD100, it kept locking up, requiring a reset. However, on the Philips site (www.philips.co.uk) you can get version 6.6 of the firmware, and version 2.0 of the Pc music manager. Since I did this, the machine hasn't locked up once. The music manager software is pretty poor unfortunately, it works OK, but take ages to start up (3 to 5 minutes), however, once running its a simple drag and drop operation. Battery life is acceptable (but still way off my old MD players), though I imagine newer machines will improve on this. All in all, not bad value for the money...just make sure you upgrade the firmware.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice system, yet too many minor flaws

I honestly think this system looks visually better then the iPod. As a matter of fact, this system uses a 2 color LCD screen. It is exactly like a game gear system screen or a small portable hand held TV screen except the actual Philip's hardware on this unit only permits 2 colors. However the iPod is only a regular Dot Matrix screen with the regular green back light screen (kinda like your watch.)
With that aside what irritates me the most is the freakin' software provided. You can't drag and drop files on to you unit. You have to use this slow program provided and ONLY this program. Perhaps most of your mp3 selection you cant use because philips created a thing that prevents you from downloading certain audio files that have been encrypted on the unit (something to do with Digital Rights Managament). Of course, this should not be much of Philip's concern if they want to stay in the audio business unless hassled by the government.
Also one would think if you have a 20gig HD on your jukebox with a nice quality screen, that I'm sure they could reserve a couple MB for games and programs. Think about it, perhaps a calculator, calender, about 2 dozen games (ya know, tetris, solitaire, frogger)and perhaps a screen saver - several of them - for viewing pleasure while sitting on that chair of yours. OK, now I'm just pushing it, since a lot of companies leave out just the simple essentials - the simple CHEAP essentials - that could give them better leverages over the competition.
Any who, the unit's own software is uncomfortably slow. It was a cool design to add animated menus and so forth, but if they move 2 frames per second, then what is the use. The fast forward doesn't fast forward really, it merely seems to distort the audio while it is moving 1/2 a second faster. But perhaps I'm picky, but, It would have been nice to separate the Play/Pause button from the Power button. How do you pause without powering off, or at least stop taking off certain needed buttons for aesthetic reasons.
But other then that, this is a fine piece of machinery.
O yeah, why do they always package the rather expensive audio players with cheap crappy headphones?

I have to admit, the DMM software it came with is clumsy and slow, but it never froze on me. I am also using the Sveta Portable software which you can dowload from here: http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t= 4628

This program allows you to do drag and drop in both directions and organize the player's playlists and songs.

The sound is great, (remember, junk in - junk out, so bad rips will sound bad as in any other player), it's small, light, great looking and sooo easy to use. I am impressed and really surprised about what other people wrote here.

5-0 out of 5 stars Replacement WebTV Keyboard
Very pleased with the service, speed of delivery, and so far the quality of my new WebTV keyboard! The old keyboard only used one AAA battery; this one uses FOUR AA batteries, so speed is noticeably faster. Also appreciative of all the informative e-mails that came to me, both from Amazon and from the seller, NW ITV Dealers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Connects OK; but typing is difficult
This Keyboard and its individual keys is/are too narrow to type
efficiently.
This results in your making many typing errors to go back over ( such as 'tanks' for 'thanks',etc.
On the other hand; it does connect to the receivor pretty good as long as you have an unobstructed view and they are on the same level.

The Keyboard needs to be revised badly before it can rate 5 or more stars!

5-0 out of 5 stars From Ms. No More Sticky Keys!!
This keyboard is all that the seller said it is. I can write and write and never have to worry about another sticky or completely stuck key. I'm satisfied!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very small, works well for me
I needed a vertical DVD player to fit in the cabinet in my bedroom and this model is pretty much the only one I've found. The unit is much smaller than you'd think looking at the web page and takes up very little space. It's only about 9-1/2 inches tall when standing vertically - and only about 2 inches thick. It does have a stand as a base that spreads out a little. The performance has been perfect for me (is there such a thing as a DVD player with a bad picture?). As 'guest from Capitola' says, no DVD player has a volume control that is part of the player -- that's the function of your amp or TV to do. The remote that comes with this model does have a volume control that would work with a Philips receiver if you had one, but that's no big thing. That's only a couple buttons out of the 50+ on the remote and a non-issue to me. It has 6 audio outputs providing discrete channels if you have equipment that can handle them; for now I have it plugged into the TV which means only the left and right front--and that also works fine with this unit.

3-0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY UNLESS YOU OWN A PHILIPS AUDIO RECEIVER
In general, this is a very nicely designed unit. But it has one problem that is so serious that I will be returning the unit immediately. Philips clearly states in the manual (verified with customer support) that all Audio functions (volume up/down, treble, bass, mute etc.) only work with a Philips brand Audio Receiver. So your choices are to use use your receiver's volume/mute etc. or attach the Audio through your TVs tiny speakers. In my case my receiver's volume doesn't work with a remote, so I will have no means of controlling the volume of the player.

This is a underhanded attempt to force people to buy a Philips receiver to work a very basic function of the player. The entire bottom half of the remote is non-functional with any receiver other than a Philips brand.

This may not be a problem if you don't mind using two remotes and have a remote operated receiver. But you still won't be able to control other audio functions like bass/treble/surround effects etc. I have never encountered a similar DVD player that won't control volume without buying a same branded audio comoponent. I'm returning it tomorrow.

1-0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLE
I BOUGHT THIS DVD PLAYER ABOUT A 6 MONTHS AGO AND I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT TROUBLE WITH IT. AT FIRST IT WOULD ONLY EXECPT DVD'S AFTER THE 10TH TIME YOU PUT IT IN. THEN IT WOULD JUST TURN OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOVIE. NOW IT WON'T EVEN TURN ON. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I ALSO BOUGHT IT AT TARGET BUT GAVE IT AS A GIFT TO MY BOYFRIEND AND HE THREW THE BOX AWAY. SO I'M STUCK WITH IT. NOT ONLY THAT BUT PHILIPS DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THE MODEL LISTED ON THERE WEBSITE SO YOU CAN'T EVEN
GET ON-LINE HELP WITH IT.

5-0 out of 5 stars great sturdy player
owned one for a year.
- metal case, well built
- plays dvd, svcd, vcd, mp3 no problem.
- excellent picture, versatile outputs
- runs either on 12VDC (for car, you need to make/buy a plug) or
110 AC.
- small enough and easy to use in the car. fits in the seats
back pocket, my 5 yr old can turn it on and use it.
this is great price, I paid $150 when it was exclusive at target.

5-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for!
This DVD player cost much less than most others. Philips Magnavox is a reputable brand, with quality products. As all companies do, they have LOW END PRODUCTD AS WELL, as to meet the market's demands. Hence the saying, you get what you pay for. Don't let people's reviews (who aren't even reviewing this particular PRODUCT!!) become part of your decision making, on whether or not to purchase this DVD Player. I have one in my kid's room, and for their needs, it's PERFECT. No Problems to date!!! Good Luck! ... Read more

Your digital music files will sound fantastic through the MC500's sound system. Connect your Windows-compatible computer to the unit's USB port and hear for yourself.

The MC500 features built-in equalizer settings to create the optimal sound mix. The first group of presets allows you to play rock, pop, or jazz at preset audio levels that help to bring the sound alive. You can also adjust the environmental qualities of the sound to create a cinema or concert hall sound in your living room.

The MC500's speakers have an output of 100 watts per channel. You can connect other components such as your TV, VCR, DVD player, or other audio or video components to the MC500 through a RCA audio/video input connection. A headphone jack is also featured.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent System for amazing price
I got this system for just a little over $100 and found it worth more than the price. Though there is no bass control, I hardly find the need to tweak the bass. Infact the bass is amazing for such a small size. The sound quality is excellant. Setup doesn't take more than a minute. I have connected it to my DVD player and I really enjoy the sound.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great value
This stereo has excellent sound quality, especially considering its very low price. It's nice and compact and can fit easily on a bookshelf. Overall, I've been very pleased with it. The only drawback that I can tell is that it is relatively slow to switch from one CD to another.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best System Out There
What can I say, this system ROCKS! Hook up is really easy, the picture instructions are great to get your new system up and running. I bought this system because I knew I would utilize every function. From playing CDs, CD-Rs, to CD-RWs, listening to the radio, playing MP3s from my PC, and using it as the auxiliary sound output for my TV and DVD player so I can get that Cinema sound quality. This Micro-system isn't short on power, with 100 watts of power, two 5.25 in. Woofers, and two tweeters, you won't miss a single note. The USB link was very easy to install onto my computer; now everytime I hit the USB link button on the remote, my PC is ready to start playing my collection of MP3s. Also it has 5-CD trays, not 3, like most every other micro-system out there. Oh, and don't you hate when you have to program radio stations yourself? Most people would just say forget it, and never take the time. Well with the Philips system you don't have to worry because it can auto program itself! Just press the program button and it will ask you if you want the system to find all stations that it can pick up. I just love the Virtual Environment Control sound functions. The eight different settings provide sound adjustments to fit the specific category of sound output being played. Such as for Music there is Rock, Jazz, Pop, and Optimal. And the other four: Cinema, Cyber, Hall, and concert. Also, I can't forget the MAX Sound Feature which uses all available benefits of the Virtual Environment Control to provide maximum sound output for any volume setting. The only downside to this system is the exhaust fan in the rear of the main unit. When the system is sitting idle, such as when a CD has finished playing or the system is on Mute, you can clearly hear the fan, which for me reminds me of my computer's fan, but at about half the volume. Still I wish the system came without the exhaust fan, a maybe they could have just made more air vents on the unit. But, besides that I have no other complaints! Pros: Great modern look, excellent sound quality, great functionality, easy to set-up and use, nothing else like it. Con: Exhaust fan can be heard during very low volume.

5-0 out of 5 stars kickin' stereo
This stereo is awsome. It is compact but plays sick beats loud enough to blow your socks off. This is the unltimate practical shelf system + it has a good price. This stereo is worth every penny you put on it! The only downside is that the mp3 streaming program isnt adapted to windows xp. Great buy for rockas redy to pump some serious nirvana!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Bang for the Buck!
This unit is great! Great sound for its size, even at low volume. It also has great connectivity with your PC through its USB port. It also has a max sound feature when you want to go BOOM BOX. My only complaint is that the CD trays (there's 5 of them) make the usual clanky noises that cd changers make...oh well you cant have everything. But still, this unit is a class act and I have no regrets getting one. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Irritates my ears
The sound is okay for it's price, but the headphones hurt my ears. The shape is flat on one side and round on the other. After I wore them for a while, the headphones started getting hot and they made my outer ears hurt. I traded headphones with my friend and she said the headphones didn't hurt THAT much. I'm a big comfort lover and these headphones arent very comfortable.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for the first month but broken wire afterwards
Good sound but very bad quality on the wire - wire broken from one of the headphones after 1 month. Dont buy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars great sound cheap construction
I have gone thru 3 pairs in 2 years.The only reason i have bought so many is the sound quality is great but the wires on these headphones are cheap.All three pair failed because of wiring problems but i have not found a pair of headphones that sound as good as these.I am sure if i spend more money i could but i just us them for the gym.Philips just needs to work on the wiring problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars best sounding headphones-ever!
These headphones should be industry standard-no specification
changes,these are designed flawlessly, from form-fit to sound
quality.I bought these phones 1.3 years ago locally and I was that
impressed with them and they almost rival my BOSE TRI-PORT
headphones!The plug,however,should be a little more thicker
so these can last longer.Overall,these sound perfect w/ my M.D.
MP3and my standard disc.These are very light on my head and
never a nusance to wear,and this is from someone who is picky about headphones!All props goes to PHILIPS.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good... For A While...
I bought these about a year ago, and they delivered great sound and bass with relatively decent comfort. However, after about a month of ownership, they began to fall apart. It all culminated when on a trip they snapped in my bag, even though they were protected. Decent headphones, but shoddy worksmanship. ... Read more

Depending on your TV's inputs, you can choose from standard composite-video (yellow RCA) output, S-video, or high-resolution component-video outputs, which help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts.

A single 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 and optical digital-audio outputs 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: TruSurround simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on a TV).

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific DVD Player!
I really got my money's worth with this DVD Player. It has all the connections to hook up to the new digital televisions and it really performs. The Perfect Storm was really awesome on this player. I highly recommend the Philips DVD player for value and performance.

1-0 out of 5 stars Late Review But In Full Agreement
Unfortunately my wife and I purchased this "product" without reading the posted reviews here. ALL are entirely accurate! I cannot calculate how many hours I have spent trying to figure out what is wrong. No loading, skipping, freezing, not OPENING when it freezes, all down the line, combined with 100 trips to and from the video stores to exchange their "defective" DVDs. My wife was firmly of the belief the DVDs were just "dirty" but I finally decided (this agrees with one of the reviewers) there is a balance problem in the drawer. When there is a no-load, jiggling/adjusting the drawer sometimes (not always) fixes it, but only until the next time, and will not stop the freezing problems. If my wife had a dime for every time I said "this thing is a piece of @&*!" she would be a millionaire. This is very late but if this product is still on the market in ANY form stay many miles away. And Philips' arrogant lack of response (as reported; I have no personal experience here) is virtually criminal in this day and age.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of JUNK!!!!!!!
This was my first stand-alone DVD player and what a disappointment is has been. A horrendous amount of skipping occurs until the DVD stops playing altogether. Probably put together by slave laborers working for a few pennies a day in Red China and it certainly shows it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't even watch a whole movie!!!
Wow!! Pure Junk! Wasn't able to watch a movie without skipping and freezing. In each case, I was able to watch the same movies on a no-name cheepo player. This thing is really junk.
I tried using it for a couple of months and threw it in the trash even though it was still under warranty. After I saw the other reviews I decided to replace it rather than frustrate myself.
How did this thing ever get to market???

1-0 out of 5 stars Pure Junk
I got this DVD for christmas and the thing has never played a whole movie all the way through. I'm on my third unit in 14 months, and Philips won't refund or give me a different, or even a new model, just sombody elses problem (reconditioned). Customer support is among the worst that I have ever come across.
If you want a good DVD stay the hell away from this model, and probably anything Philips ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Philips' widescreen, 15:9 aspect-ratio 23PF8946 TFT LCD television brings you 23 diagonal inches of PC convenience and home-theater style. Perfect for use just about anywhere--living rooms, dens, offices, bedrooms, kitchens, dorms, you name it--the TV offers high brightness (450 cd/m2) and high contrast (500:1), as well as an integrated TV tuner for cable or broadcast reception of all your favorite programs.

This is an EDTV display, which means it's a step closer to high-definition or HDTV than standard TVs. When used with a progressive-scan DVD player (or 480p-output DTV set-top box) you'll get seamless, razor-sharp images from your favorite movies and concert videos.

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 23PF8946's comes outfitted with Digital Crystal Clear III technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, green/blue stretch, and a 3-line digital comb filter. The 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 feature called Active Control continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction. Auto Picture 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.

Auto Sound allows you to select from 3 factory-set controls and a personal control that you set according to your preferences. Use the factory-set controls (voice, music, and theatre) to enhance appropriate programs. Virtual Dolby surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any 2 speakers.

Inputs include 1 component-video, 1 S-video, and 2 composite-video connections, as well as a VGA computer input. Side-panel AV inputs accommodate a camcorder, gaming device, or VCR hookup, and a headphone output (minijack .125-inch) lets you listen in private.
