Just did a search for my beloved Philips DVP520 and I can't believe its on here. I have had my Philips for around 7 years and I love it so much I was eager to review it for you.
As mentioned my Phillips is 7 years old so i think you can only buy them second hand or re-conditioned now, but if you fancy a reliable slimline DVD player then keep your eyes peeled for one of these. At the time the player did set me back over £100 as it was one of the most top of the range and DVD players were still in the early years, and as I was paying the good sum out I wanted a stylish one that I knew would last me, and Philips has such a good name.
I initially saw this player for its design. Its a stylish slimline DVD player, that's still compact even for nowadays standards! At just 36 cm wide by 28 depth and a tiny 4 cm height. I know you can now buy players smaller than this but I am still impressed on how shallow it is. It also only weighs just over 2 1/2 kilo's so its pretty light.
The player has a stainless steels looking case, with a slim black digital display and a sliding tray DVD loader. The DVP520 will play DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD, CD-R and CD-RW! That pretty much covers every disc type you can get.
It has one scart socket at the back, and was pre-HDMI leads so that's all you can expect. It plays your disc in a sharp picture, and loads them quickly.
The DVD player is so easy to set up, you literally plug in and go, and the easy to navigate remote makes the player a simple DVD player to use. The Menu's and Settings are child's play to get into and set.
The main reason I love the DVD player so much is its reliability. As mentioned mine is 7 years old and has never let me down once. And even though it is old, it looks a stylish and modern as the modern ones you can buy now!
Summary: Just shows what a good brand Philips are!
