As for some time my previous standalone DVD player started hiccuping on some dvd’s. Especially multi layer dvd’s were a pain to watch. Constant lockups , hangs and it comes without a reset button :(.
So i’ve searched and bought a new one. The Philips DVD640.
I can recommend this standalone DVD player if you’re looking for a dvd player that is more of a “recognized” brand (instead of those other weird names).
It plays VCD , SVCD , MP3 , .JPG , Photo CD , DVD , DVD+R , DVD+RW and the best feature is… it’s amazingly easy to make it region free (Never thought this would happen with a philips ).
Just eject the tray and press 0 four times on your remote
Cool feature is that it can rotate JPG’s as well
Disadvantage : no eject/inject button on the remote… but hey… i can live with that
