When I bought this Philips DVP3982 DVD player back around April, all I was looking for was an inexpensive player that would accommodate AVI DivX videos, something neither our Sony nor the high end Marantz DV9600 player could do. A quick trip to Walmart, a few minutes cross comparing the 'budget' players, about $59 later, and I was headed home with one of these puppies. Naturally, I was expecting nothing more than what one might reasonably expect from a $50 DVD player, which believe me, wasn't much. So imagine my utter surprise when debuting this small, slim inexpensive 'accessory' on Disney's Ratatouille (in 'component video' hookup) to find both picture and sound quality much better than the $300 Sony, and very nearly equal to that of the Marantz DV9600, which cost...let's not even talk about that! Disk after disk, the same results; clear, crisp, detailed pictures you can almost 'peel off the screen' and some VERY impressive audio quality. Yes, the player could have been built a bit more sturdy, but probably not for $59! Likewise, a USB jack on the front panel (for playing videos and mp3 files right from a Flash Drive) would have REALLY been a welcome feature, but again, I can't complain given its price...and I doubt if you will, either! So why only 4 stars, you ask? well, the wireless remote is a bit 'underpowered', occasionally requiring a second, more carefully aimed press of its buttons, and generally slow response to commands. But otherwise, it's an excellent value for the money!

I paid $60 at CC. It was used in our cabin over the past 6 mo. It ran for 50 hours and the HDMI signal failed. Other inputs still working but note that it takes 5 sec to turn ON and it takes 90 sec to tell me that it could not load/play my computer burned movies on any input (HDMI, component,etc.) or at any resolution and could not play some commercial DVDs. During play, it would sometimes hesitate and skip 2 seconds, even on brand new DVDs. DO NOT BUY THIS player at any price and save your self the aggravation of a bad watching experience.

I've owned this player for about 2 years for $53. It gets light use, perhaps 2x a month with a mix of DVD and xvid content.

This was purchases as a replacement for another xvid/avi/divx player that failed after many years of use. My expectations were fairly low. Play back carefully encoded xvid files, scale the videos appropriately and use whatever connector my receiver and/or TV required.

Initially, this player was connected via component video cables, then when a new TV arrived, we switched to HDMI for easier connections. Both of these connections has worked as expected.

DVD Video performance is, uh, beautiful. DVDs are up scaled to 1080i very nicely.

Audio performance has been good too. Since migrating to a newer HDTV, surround sound output hasn't been tested since the HDMI goes into the TV only. Our connections currently do not support surround sound, but it worked nicely going through the THX receiver in the previous configuration.

Video codec support is mostly as expected, but appears to be less optimal with xvid encoded content than my other 2 very old hardware players. Stuttering and pixelation during playback is a problem with this player for most xvid/avi content I've tried. This is the main reason for only 3 stars.

Other players have infinite scaling while this device has just 2x, 4x, 1/2, 1/4 scaling. This infinite scaling deals with TV overscan, so it really is desired. Taking the same content to another hardware divx/xvid device, a MediaGate MG35, and playing it over a wired ethernet connection plays it back perfectly on the same TV.

Jump by time doesn't exist on this player. This matters for longer AVI content that you don't want to fast forward at 32x to reach the part you're interested in.

I've had good luck with inexpensive dvd players in the past - what I like most is that the least expensive models tend to be built overseas and designed to be shipped all over, so they play both PAL and NTSC video, and there is usually a good hack to be found through google that explains how to convert them to multiregion players. This one's no exception: it will play PAL as well as NTSC, and there is an easy hack that allows you to change its region. Unfortunately, it's also a big dud. The first one I bought kept skipping and stalling, so I returned it and replaced it, hoping that was a fluke. It wasn't. While the second one didn't skip or stall nearly as much, after about a week's use it went into wacky color mode. Everything became either green, red, or purple and while unplugging it and letting it cool down tends to fix the problem, I can't deal with that problem. Until that started happening, the quality of the upconversion seemed to be pretty good. I liked what I saw - it was attached via an HDMI cable to my Sanyo 42" LCD HD television - but the dream faded, and now I'm left with a piece of junk that I'm returning as we speak. Don't bother with this one - too bad, too, since I've always had good luck with Phillips products in the past.

Do not buy this player. We had ours for about a month, after that we returned it and got a new player. We had small problems with it in the first week but we worked fought, so it would play. Most of the time we had problems just getting it to power up, we returned it when we could not get my brand new Alf DVD to play. It is rather slow to load the DVD, we did not want it for much just to play my DVD's. DVD tray is also thin and looks cheap.

The only good thing about the player is if I stoped the it in the middle of a movie and turned off the power it would start back up where I stopped. We got a Sony instead and it will do the same thing.
