Blu-ray Disc playback

Blu-ray Discs have the capacity to carry high definition data, along with pictures in the 1920 x 1080 resolution that defines full high definition images. Scenes come to life as details leap at you, movements smoothen and images turn crystal clear. Blu-ray also delivers uncompressed surround sound — so your audio experience becomes unbelievably real. The high storage capacity of Blu-ray Discs also allows a host of interactive possibilities to be built in. Seamless navigation during playback and other exciting features such as pop-up menus bring a whole new dimension to home entertainment.


DVD video upscaling

HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. DVD movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in 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.


1080p at 24 fps

Bring a true cinema experience into your living room, with 24 frames-per-second video. Original films are all recorded at this frame rate, providing an ambience and image texture that is so unique. Philips Blu-ray Disc players are equipped to bring you 24fps directly from Blu-ray Discs — giving you sensational cinema-like high definition images that will astound you.


EasyLink

EasyLink lets you control multiple devices with one remote. It uses HDMI CEC industry-standard protocol to share functionality between devices through the HDMI cable. With one touch of a button, you can operate all your connected HDMI CEC-enabled equipment simultaneously. Functions like standby and play can now be carried out with absolute ease


Dolby TrueHD for high fidelity 7.1 surround sound

Dolby TrueHD delivers 7.1 channels of the finest sound from your Blu-ray Discs. Audio reproduced is virtually indistinguishable from the studio master, so you hear what the creators intended for you to hear. Dolby TrueHD completes your high definition entertainment experience.


DivX® Ultra for enhanced playback of DivX® media files

DivX® Ultra merges DivX® playback with great features like integrated subtitles, multiple audio languages, multiple tracks and menus into one convenient file format.

Had one of these for a few months and can recommend it.

A few things to note:-

It will play DivX and Xvid files no problem
It can be unlocked to play multi- region DVDs, but NOT multi-region Blueray.
You cannot play files on a memory stick via the USB connection (although someone has reviewed this on Amazon and claims there is a firmware update that fixes this)

I bought this just after Christmas for about £72.00 from Woolworths online. Have had problems with some DVD's despite upgrade through philips website, and unpredicatble freezing with blu ray's. When it works the picture quality is amazing but sadly you find yourself waiting for the freeze. Have kept it as ok for the price but probably wouldn't buy now with other cheap options available.

The firmware upgrade enables media to be played via the rear usb, it also fixes some of the compatability issues with newer discs....

bottom right of the page, download, transfer to usb device and upgrade.

Have been playing avi files on mine with no problems.
Also used this machine pretty much daily for the past 7 months without a problem,
plays everything i've thrown at it and no freezing or lagging.

Obviously there's better machines out there if your willing to pay a higher price but for the budget price its a great machine.

Think you may have just got an iffy machine,
I'd get on to them and push for a replacement or repair, as it's still within warranty.
I havent had any of these problems with daily use over the same period.
