Get sharper, clearer pictures with HDMI 1080p upscaling Your dream player with flawless, true-to-life picture quality and the ability to play virtually any disc! The Philips DVD player DVP2880 delivers your movies and music entertainment experience.

HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution – ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by “p” in “1080p”) eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio, without conversions to analogue – delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.

The Universal Serial Bus, or USB, is a protocol standard that is conveniently used to link PCs, peripherals and consumer electronic equipment. With USB Media Link, all you have to do is plug in your USB device, select the movie, music or photo and play away.

With DivX support, you are able to enjoy DivX encoded videos and movies from the Internet, including purchased Hollywood films, in the comfort of your living room. The DivX media format is an MPEG-4-based video compression technology that enables you to save large files like movies, trailers and music videos on media like CD-R/RW and DVD recordable disc for playback on your DivX Ultra Certified Philips Blu-ray or DVD player. DivX Ultra combines DivX playback with great features like integrated subtitles, multiple audio languages, multiple tracks and menus in one convenient file format.

A little cracker from Philips Thirty years ago, consumer electronics was a very different world. As I recall, Technics (remember them?) was an aspirational brand, as was Sony. Philips gear was a little cheaper that the premium brands and was pretty fragile in terms of build quality, which made buying Philips a bit of a non-starter for me, despite their impressive technical specs. A player like this (had DVDs been around then) would have been Amstrad and would have been a somewhat risky purchase. I would have expected it to be pretty creaky mechanically, poor in performance and likely to fail quickly. Anyway, time passed, brands evolved, and whilst Sony expanded to encompass a broader market and allow their once prestigious badge to be found of some fairly feeble gear, Philips kept to their policy of high tech, low-priced electronics, but now with improved build-quality. If you’re of the thought “You get what you pay for!”, and I’m inclined to agree up to a point, then you might be tempted to dismiss this player as…

Nice compact player My daughter bought this based on only a couple of reviews, but both were positive and the player sounded good for the price. Arrived today and looks good – appears to do everything it should and is good value for money. Quite a bit smaller than most other players if you want to reduce the footprint from standard players. One problem, however, I forgot she wanted multi-region but eventually found the following hack on the internet:1. Power ON the DVD player with no disc inside2. Goto SETUP and go to Preferences3. With preferences highlighted, Press NEXT CHAPTER>|, PREVIOUS CHAPTER |<, NEXT CHAPTER>|,PREVIOUS CHAPTER |<4. The OSD will show the current Region Code5. Press the Navigation Up or Navigation Down buttons toselect your desired region, or 0 for region free6. Press OK to confirm your region selectionThis appears to have worked OK (second go), so I'm really happy!!
