Looking for new DVD player



After reading quite a few complaints aboutthe Philips DVP 642 failing after about 6 months, I am looking for a potential new choice for a new player.

I would like to have…

PAL/NTSC conversion.
Plays DVD-R(W)/DVD+R(W).
Plays MP3s.
Progressive scan.
Dolby Digital and DTS capable.
More than 8x FF and RW.



Philips is having problems lately with their products. I have experinced it myself. The net is full of Philips “issues”. So, I would choose a reliable brand, like Pioneer.



I am in Brooklyn, NY… not the UK. I am unable to find this listed in any US stores.


Try a Philips DVP 3040.
