Philips DVP 3980/37


$55.00 Released February, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Plays both NTSC and PAL DVDs without a problem. Upconversion to 1080p is well rendered, looks nearly HD and doesn't leave artifacts. Full array of output types for a wide variety of displays.

The Cons:Marked as "all regions", but has a problem with Region 4 DVDs. Remote control looks and feels cheap, feels light and flimsy. Long delay between when a button is pressed and the player responds.

Philips DVP 3980/37 DVD player is a model with just the basics covered. With high definition video upscaling of 720p, 1080i and 1080p, a clear and crisp picture can be expected. Other image enhancements are supported by progressive scan and what Philips calls Smart Picture.
