So basically, this is a “me too” product.
Not sure why, but I’ve always found Phillips products to be absolute rubbish. Just one of those brands where products have more trouble playing a cd when that’s the main function, long life light globes with short life times, product capabilities that you’d expect in the product class, but never seem to be fulfilled.

With the use of the phison controller, it seems like this product will be very poor, by the time it is available.

At one time didn’t Phillips use the Nexperia chipset in some of their DVDRWs? Like BenQ.

Not a big fan or Philips but some of their products were very good, and one of them is the Nexperia chip, the other product that was outstanding was their CRT TV’s and monitors. I still have friends that are currently using philips TV’s and monitors without and single issue for more than a decade.
Somehow in the mid 90’s the manage to mess their consumer electronics :frowning:
Now some of their products are made by Funai, and that says it all.

Got to agree that once upon a time Philips was a very good brand. Up until mid 90’s…

CRT TV:s were very good, but after they switched to using LG picture tubes things went sour.

Funai ain’t that bad… Just last week I disposed one Funai TV, made in 1989, still rocked. Over the years it has had one faulty cap and one faulty relay. Not bad IMHO.
