"Good product for the money"3.0 starson by pac_80
Pros: Plays Divx and AVI/MEPG CD's.
Cons: Remote is cheaply made and not layed out in a nice way, and as of May 24th 2005 no longer updateable
Summary: I have been using this player for almost a year now, with no problems. Bought it for the price, the ability to play almost any videos I burned from my PC, and most important the ability to update it. About a month after buying I downloaded and updated the firmware to a newer version that was avalible off philips.com. Wasn't much on the site describing what the update fixed or improved, but did notice it played more disc that it use to not play. Today when looking to see if any newer versions were availble, the download site was gone, called philips 800 number only to find out that at this time philips no longer supports updates, was told they had problems with them and that it could make the player unusable. They wouldn't even tell me how to check the current version I have on the player, use to know how to do that but had forgotten. Its a great DVD player and I love it alot but to be frank it TOTALLY sucks when they sell it as updatable and before a year has pasted, stop offering them altogether. For this reason alone I have to rate them a 6 instead of an 8 like I planned.
