We've had the Philips HTS3100 in our living room for about 6 months now and both myself and my fiancée are very impressed with it.
The unit is silver and nicely finished with a blue digital display - however this does not display the time (whether the unit is on or off), meaning that we have to have a separate clock in our room.
When it comes to playing DVDs, the HTS3100 is pretty good at its job. The sound quality is good - especially when watching action movies or listening to music. The picture quality is also very good (although we don't have the best TV in the world!).
One feature that I like about this DVD player is that it plays almost any disc you can throw at it - CDs and DVDs are obviously supported (including multi-region discs). You can also play DVDs that you've created on your computer, including .avi movie files as the unit has DivX support - something which my other DVD player hasn't!
We're really impressed with this system and we'd recommend it to anyone!
