    Hi people.

    Its been forever since i had a proper dvd player. At one point i used PS2, which obviously sucked some major balls, i've used some crappy tesco coaster-makers, and as of maybe a year or two i use my pc with a Sharpie LC-42XD1E set as a second monitor. Which works ok, if not the cumbersomeness of the controls. No remote, cant relax on me couch, etc.

    So, i have decided to shop around for a dedicated DVD player with certain tech capabilities.

    What i want is a player for 50-100 gbp, that has HDMI, DivX/Xvid playback, USB playback, and 1080p upscaling.

    At the moment i'm looking at Phillips 5960, but it only has 1080i and this, having a 1080p telly is a waste. As far as i know Phillips 5980 (1080p) is not worth the money due to only difference from 5960 is having "p" upscale, but no custom firmwares, etc...

    So, any help about my situation ?

    I have owned a Philips 5960 for about a year and absolutely love it.
    This week Target has that one on sale for $59. I like this model
    so much I went and bought a 2nd one. It plays everything I put in it.
    If you check on techbargains.com the 5982 is on sale today for $59
