“Great DVD by Philips”

ProVery reasonably priced, Has many features that exi...

ConsOdd remote, Only in silver

As with most of the electronic and other devices I possess, I am always quite pleased with my instincts when it comes to buying the right product and at the right price. My new acquisition the Philips DVD711 DVD Player is no exception. At just £189 this beauty is pure value for money. It provides...

ConsIt would be unfair of me to say anything bad!

I thought long and hard before I purchased this DVD player from PHILIPS. I weighed up all the pros and cons and the ins and outs and the advantages and disadvantages.I didnt just go for the cheapest machine either...for that would have been the easy way out. The first thing that cought my eye was...

ProExcellent Quality, Functionality and Price

ConsRuns a little Hot

Considering this Player costs under £200 in most stores, it is positively packed with features. It is simple to install and configure, and a dream to use. The DVD-711 is among the few 'budget' DVD Players to have two SCART sockets, a feature which many other sub-£200 players lack. Add into the...

ProDual laser which will play ANY discs

ConsNone found yet

I was badgered into getting a DVD player mostly by my kids, so I set them a challenge: If you can find a DVD that will play not only DVD/CD but CD re-writeables for under £200 then we'll get one. I sat back smugly waiting for them to draw a blank. Luckily they found the 711. It's good to look at...

“Its 'alright'”

published 17/09/2000

ProGood make, Looks good

ConsPoor remote control, lacking looks and features

Unlike most reviewers who are pleased with Phillips, I was dissapointed with this DVD player. The remote is awful and lacks fuctionality - it doesn't even open the DVD tray!!!!! This is a shame because the actual unit looks pretty good, and unlike many DVD players, it has two scart sockets...

“Classy Performer !”

published 26/07/2000

ProZoom, Good Looking, Digital & Optical Outs

ConsRemote Control Too Small

This is the new Phillips DVD player to replace the clunky old 710 that had the drive noise fault. It looks far better and the drive is centre mounted. The graphics menu is updated to that of the 750 and includes 3D Surround Sound from just two speakers. Sound and picture quality are excellent and...

“dvd definate value dude”

published 24/02/2001

Proeasy to use, quality of build is high

Consdesign flaw with sound

After hearing many horror stories about Philips' CD players, I was very hesitant to buy this DVD player. But after having it for a couple of weeks, I must say the Dutch electronics giant delivered a very overall pleasing player at a very competitive price. The only thing keeping me from giving it...
