    I'm in the process of buying a new DVD player for my gf to replace her broken one. It needs to play DivX/Xvid, not too worried about the cost as long as its resonable.

    So far I've found the Phillips DVP5100, any advice or alternative suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks:)

    I've just bought a Philips DVP5900 as a stop gap until HD DVD and its played everything i've thrown at it. HDMI and prog scan thro component too, good value imo at £79

    I went for the 5100 in the end, seems like a good buy and it plays DivX/Xvid, read a few reviews and it seems ok:)

    It was a toss up between that and the 5900, but I didn't think she'd really use or even notice the extra features of the 5900 so went for the 5100.
