    You'll find the ubiquitous socket on the back panel of this low price DVD deck from Philips, and those of you with HD Ready displays take note -the DVP5960 will up convert standard definition DVDs to 720p or 1080i to more closely match your screen

    If you're not yet ready to stump up for a proper hi-def disc player then the next best thing is a DVD deck with 1080p upscaling. Just a year ago this feature was only found on high-end players, but the £80 DVP5980 proves that this is no longer the case

    Philips PET1030 review

    We know that you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but our first impression of the PET1030 was that it looked pretty slick. The new player features a streamlined design, thanks to the fact that the power supply is now integrated into the main unit, unlike on previous models.

    Compared with some so-called portable DVD players, the Philips PET 821 is very compact and amazingly light (940g), with an attractive, flip-up cover that's not too dissimilar to a Mac laptop.

    Philips'new range of DVD recorders sees some changes from older models.For a start,you can now record on both DVD R/RW and DVD-R/RW discs. If this does nothing more than reassure potential buyers that they don't have to worry about a format war

    Small but perfectly formed,this is surprisingly weighty for such a tiny thing. On top of this the brushed metallic finish will keep your inner magpie feeling fulfiled. Open the sturdy lid and you'll find that if you push the screen back too far...

    Philips PET1000 review

    Philips' top-lining portable DVD deck has the feel of a micro laptop about it. It is fairly heavy (especially with the battery pack attached) and has a rather swish silvered finish to it.

    Philips' DVD recorders were among the most impressive of the first generation models, but do they still impress in a market that's become more mature and far more competitive?

    The DVDR725H is the 160GB version of the 80GB HDRW720, which we reviewed a little harshly in the November '04 issue, criticising its sluggish operating system and limited editing facilities.But we couldn't fault it on looks
