Philips DVP 5982/37


$70.00 Released June, 2006

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Really thin, sleek construction. Proper 1080p (not 1080i) output that looks great. DivX video playback from external USB devices.

The Cons:Resuming DVD playback from standby can cause strange issues such as audio not playing correctly. Disc tray feels flimsy and cheap. Menu user interface is really ugly and distracting.

Philips DVP 5982/37 DVD player is a model with 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.
