I have had this player for over 1 year. It plays everything I throw at it divx and xvid wise (not hd though of course). The only gripe I have with it is that the USB socket is only USB 1.1 so if you watch anything from memory card it starts to seriously stutter with any fast moving or very detailed scenes. From the CD or DVD I get no problems. To stop it stuttering usually pausing the video and letting the card catch up a little then pressing play a few seconds later clears this up. Also on a good note if you have any videos that are slightly out of synch this player has a menu option to alter the lip synch timing which ive found v useful once mastered. I paid £70 a year ago - for £40 you cant go wrong UNLESS you find a player that supports USB 2.0.

A fab DVD player that plays almost everything you can think of.

Bargain!

I've watched so much stuff from the US since getting mine it's unbelievable (recommend Dexter seasons 1 & 2) :w00t:

They also have the DVP5160 (non HD version) for £35, managed to get it for £27.99 about 1 month ago so worth keeping an eye on to see if they reduce

Ahh they finally got stock of this baby!

I bought this a few months ago and it's excellent.

Me too. Unless a previous poster, I've watched loads through the usb port on a 2gb stick thing (Divx), and it's been fantastic quality.

I got one a few months back for £50 from Asda. Great machine, but getting the lip sync right on the USB playback takes some doing, if it's not perfect in the first place.

Bought it in January for £61 from John Lewis.


It's bargain at this price. Best DVD player around sub £50.
#11
I own the 5980 so i can't confirm this. But does this one (the 5960) have a scart as I am sure that was the reason why i didn't choose this model.
#12
No, it didn't come with a scart when I purchased it in January.


Might be packed in with one now, though.
#13
can`t understand why this up here now , yeah its a good machine but it has been at this price for 6 months , so no real bargain .
#14
Are there any DVD Recording versions of this player?
#15
Yes been this price for some months. They both used to be £40. So the real news is that the non hi def one is not five pounds cheaper...

Does anyone know, for those of us without a high def tv or any likelihood of getting one, if there is any disadvantage to getting the non hi definition player? Does the high definition have anything better about it other than the ability to upscale to high def? Thanks.
#16
I have one of these and it's great.

& for those of us that get some films digitally :whistling: - it saves the effort of having to burn DVD's all the time. AVI files play straight from a USB stick.

But just to confirm, it is only a USB 1.1 speed port yes? so high bit rate vids are jumpy etc?

Have you tried say streaming WMV HD from it, any good?

Thanks

I've had no problems with any files via USB, maybe I'm not watching the high bit vids....

Silver, with shiny black on the front panel.
#22
Can you connect a external hard drive to this and play Divx movies from it?
#23
^Depends.

I think the hard drive would need to be FAT32 and have its own power supply.

Why would it come with a scart cable when it is HDMI?

great player - terrible remote
