Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

12-bit/108MHz video processing for sharp, natural images

12-bit Video DAC is a superior Digital-to-Analogue-Converter that preserves every detail of the authentic picture quality. It shows subtle shades and smoother graduation of colours, resulting in a more vibrant and natural picture. The limitation of the usual 10bit DAC become in particular apparent while using large screens and projectors.

DivX Ultra Certified for enhanced playback of DivX videos

DivX Ultra combines DivX playback with great features like integrated subtitles, multiple audio languages, multiple tracks and menus into one convenient file format.

Plays DivX, MP3, WMA and JPEG digital camera photos

Multi-format playability allows you to play most file formats for maximum listening and viewing pleasure, including MP3, WMA, JPEG and the popular DivX digital media format. DivX playback enables you to play and share compressed high quality DivX video content beyond your computer.

Smart Sound optimizes audio settings

Smart Sound provides the optimal sound settings for ultra bass, bass, treble and balance so that you can get the best entertainment experience.

192kHz/24 bit audio DAC enhances analogue sound input

192KHz sampling enables you to have an accurate representation of the original sound curves. Together with a 24-bit resolution, more information is captured from the original analogue sound wave form, giving a much richer audio reproduction.

High quality outputs for analogue and digital audio

Plays CD, (S)VCD, DVD, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW

Progressive Scan component video for optimised image quality

Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, both fields are written at one time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.

Ultra-slim design that fits anywhere

USB Direct plays photos and music from USB flash drives

Simply plug your device into the USB port on your Philips DVD system. Your digital music and photos will be played directly from the device. Now you can share your favourite moments with family and friends.

    Like many people, I get sick of the time and money it takes to convert .avi movies to DVD then burn them to disc so I decided to go for this player purely bucause it has a USB input.

    I've only had the 5160 a month or two but so far it has been invaluable. I no longer waste blank CD/DVD'S on movies that are rubbish and end up in the bin. I simply stick a 2Gb flash drive in my PC and drag and drop the .avi/DivX movie file onto it. Seconds later, hey presto, unplug the flash drive and pop it into the front of the DVD player. If the Movie is not much good, I delete it! Image quality is excellent (as long as the file is around 700Mb/1.5hr movie) and navigation within the player menu is a doddle.

    Needless to say, playing ordinary DVD's is just as impressive. Picture and sound quality are both superb. A friend of mine has the Sony NS76H and even he admits that the sound and picture quality from my Philips is comparable and it cost £210 less. I have yet to find a DVD disc this player won't play, the unit is stylish and sleek and build quality is what you would expect from Philips. Most of all, with a price tag of £38.99 delivered, you'd really struggle to get more for your money!

    I owned the previous model to this and was generally pleased with it. My dad has that now. I bought this because it has a better disk loading mechanism and because of the USB port. (I also bought a 4GB flash drive to use with it). So far, it has performed as I'd hoped. DVDs are crystal clear, but that's usual these days.

    But it's the USB port that really interested me. The idea of just sticking in a flash drive rather than burning DVDRs makes a lot of sense to me. Before my new flash drive came, I stuck my USB mp3 player in. It was immediately recognised and I was able to play all my mp3s. Not great sound through the TV but you can always hook the DVD up to some decent speakers.

    Once the flash drive came, I copied some music videos to it and stuck it in the DVD player. Just like the mp3 player, the flash drive was recognised straight away and the videos were listed in directory/alpha order. Set one to play and they'll play sequentially from that point within the directory.

    Quality is basically the quality of the file. I had no problem playing both AVIs and mpegs, but it choked on a couple of the files. After a bit of playing around my best guess (at the moment) is that the player didn't like the resolution, which was 720x. After re-encoding to 480x576 the vids played fine. Easy enough to re-encode short music videos, more of a pain with movies.

    On the whole, although it's still early days, it's doing what I want, so I'm well pleased.

    I bought this player solely for the fact that it has a USB port which allows you to play .avi digital video files on your TV. Set up took a couple of minutes and as soon as I plugged in my USB stick, it recognised it and allowed me to navigate to the video files very easily. Playback quality - obviously - depends on the quality / size of your .avi file, but I'm very happy with what I've seen so far.

    This arrived within 1 week of me ordering it. What I was after was a multi region DVD player than can also play AVI's. This was SO easy to make multi region - brilliant. Followed the instructions on the Amazon web site and it worked perfectly, took 30 seconds to sort out. I have also played an AVI from a burned disc as well as from my USB memory stick. Both worked perfectly. For a mere £35 I cannot speak highly enough about this product. Bravo Amazon with the free delivery as well.

    Bought this player for £27.99 inc. free delivery, amazing value. Can easily play all my Divx files from either a USB stick/drive or from a CD/DVD. Picture quality is fine.
    Only 2 downsides is that there is no option to program the running order of CD/MP3 files & no random/shuffle feature.
    Also Philips UK do not appear to support this product as they told me there as no up to date firmware for this player. However, a few minutes search on an internet search engine revealed a newer, official, firmware version via a French Philips support site. This I installed and found the names of my MP3/Divx titles displayed better on the screen.
    Something else to mention is that the housing on my player is silver (the front panel is still black). All the pictures on this site suggest that the entire housing is black.

    This is a fantastic player, and I agree with all the good reviews it's got here. Just a few v minor things I don't like:

    - The DVD drawer is very thin, and feels a bit flimsy.
    - It seems to create a lot of interference on Ch 58 (BBC1 for me!) when on. Fine in standby though.
    - The player body is silver, not black, which I think would've looked more sleek.

    Other than that, I love it - it's played rental DVDs flawlessly that my other players skip on. USB is brilliant, and it's played every file I've tried. I'm very pleased with it!
