Review: Philips DCP750

Philip’s DCP750 is the most thoughtfully-designed iPod video viewers we’ve yet tested. The top-loading DVD player appears to have been a primary consideration, rather than an afterthought, and it shows in the unit’s ease of use and output quality. Philips seems to have done just about everything right, including choosing an attractive price point. Although not cheap, at $150 the DCP750 definitely gives you your money’s worth.
