(Product) Philips DVP642 DivX-Certified Progressive-Scan DVD Player

In the world today of multi-purpose devices, sometimes simple is better. I needed a DVD player since my old DVD/VHS player had died. The price was right on this unit. The extra features are nice, but I have hardly ever had reason to use them. That said, you can put a lot of .avi files on a disk and what them in their native format. Great for home movies straight from the camera.

Some people have said that there are lifespan problems with the device. I’ve had mine for several years without a single problem. I use it often, not only for movies but also for CD’s.

Overall it is a great unit at a great price.
