Some customer reviews of Philips DCP-951

Most helpful reviews

Nigel, London music and video player

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Physical design is attractive, takes most i-pods in cradle, not heavy or large but good-sized screen. Will charge i-pod when unit is off.
Bad points:
Worst is really bad software design and function when controlling i-pod from unit. No search facility so have to scroll down thousands of songs alphabetically, terribly old-fashioned looking font, song, album and artist names cut off. In the end I used the 'video' option to control music from the i-pod itself. Maybe Philips could send out software update via the web?
Also keep getting 'reset your i-pod' message when attaching it. First time I restored it on my computer taking several hours before I realised you just had to unplug it and plug in again several times.

Jon, Soutahmpton Home cinema enthusiast

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great sound and video quality, plays DVD's straight out of the box. Remote works well at almost any range, screen has good colours and decent backlight so playback emminently watchable in most light condidtions.
Bad points:
Can't use the remote to interface with ipod, all media selection and playback commands need to be issued through ipod directly. Also in order to view video from the SD card videos need to be transcoded to MP4 format, which it fails to mention in the associated paperwork.
