Good player To start, let me say I did not buy this from Amazon.I bought this player as I wanted one that played both DVDs and Video CDs (this plays both and DivX files as a bonus), with HD upscaling, and which I could also unlock to be multi-region/region-free to play region 1 DVDs (the hack is easy to find on Google and the machine is easy to unlock). I can’t fault it on these points. I’m no expert on picture quality, nor a sound buff, but the picture and sound seem fine to me.Also worth saying is this DVD player is quite small and slim, they seem to have packed alot into a small package.As others have said, there is no SCART socket directly on the device, just the normal component video sockets and an HDMI socket. This is fine for me, as I had an unused HDMI socket on my TV, but something to bear in mind.There is an adaptor in the box which seems to be meant for converting the component video sockets to a SCART cable, but I didn’t try this and can’t…

Good player, but no SCART If you don’t have an HDMI TV, be aware there’s no SCART output on this DVD player. There’s a SCART adapter, but you’ll get poor quality out of it. I want SCART now and HDMI for when I get a new TV, so I’m buying the old DVP3580.Philips’ model numbers had me scratching my head, so I made a chart (all models do PAL, Divx):New models, tapered look:_______ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8DVP3880 y y y _ y _ y y £50 no SCART, RCA to SCART adapter (poor quality, worse than SCART)DVP3850 _ y y y _ _ _ y £74 no HDMIDVP3800 _ _ y y _ _ _ _ £47 no HDMI or USBOld models, rectangular look:_______ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8DVP3580 y y _ y y y _ _ £54 no NTSC output, old models don’t have picture enhancementDVP3520 _ y y y _ y _ _ £37 no HDMIDVP3111 _ _ y y _ _ _ _ £33 no HDMI or USB, no digital display on playerKey:1 HDMI (HD)2 USB3 NTSC4 SCART5 Divx ultra6 Green power7…
