Had this player a while & it's been GREAT !!!!,
This review is from: Philips DVP3005/05 Multi Region Capable - DVD Player (Electronics)
I've had this DVD player a good few months now & wanted to try it out for a while before writing a review.
The DVD is great, sometimes actually loading the disc can be a slight bit slower than some DVD players, but other than that it's great & the loading thing isn't a bad thing either, as I say it's slightly slower than some but it's truly nothing to worry about, only the most nit picky person would find that an issue.
The regions for Multi DO have to be unlocked, this is very easy to do & works perfect, which is the following :
Make sure the tray is EJECTED so theirs no disc in the player
Press system menu on remote control
Go to preference settings
Use Up and Down keys to select 0 and press OK
Press system menu on remote to exit
I did this myself with no problems or hassle at all & it DID work straight away, now playing any DVD's of any region.
Also, another thing I think I noticed someone saying how theirs no eject button on the remote, thats kinda true, their isn't an eject button as such HOWEVER holding down the STOP button for a few seconds ejects the disc, which I'm not sure many people realised.
The player itself is a really nice design too & very slim, so goes in nicely on any unit, it's a FANTASTIC price, plays DVD's perfectly & a great bargain.
For the price you pay this is definietly the best DVD you'll find, I've spent loads more money on players in the past and they haven't been half as good as this, however of course if you buy a new top notch player, it'll wipe the floor with this, but as a standard DVD player, for all you need to watch your DVD's (which is all they are needed for anyway), it's an absolute bargain & gem of an item, trust me !!!!
