I would not touch anything from Philips (at least in Canada).
I bought a 10" full 480p portable DVD player and it died after 9 months.
Tried to take it in for repair and they refused saying the dealer was no longer an authorized dealer (how is that my fault).
Asked how much it would cost to fix. I was told they don't fix them and they don't have any parts, you get a new one if it's under warranty. Out of warranty? Too bad go buy a new one.
They seemed to think this was a great idea.
They didn't seem to give a sh*t when I said that if I had to buy a new player it would not be a Philips, and I would never buy anything from Philips again. Or that I would tell others not to buy Philips. You might as well buy one of those Chinese brands that you have never heard of before and will likely never see again since it will be cheaper and the support is the same (none).
I bought a Panasonic, the screen is not as nice but it works better, and plays stuff the Philips choked on, and you don't need to use the remote to get to some features (bad enough on a set-top, but a portable? wtf?).
