Good, Cheap, Upscaler with USB/DivX?


Novice Member
I have a Philips DVP5960, and its perfect for me.
My parents would like something similar (but i cant find the 5960 anywhere for sale), for around £50 - but less is better
theres only 3 real needs,
USB Divx Playback
Upscaling and
Multiregion DVD playback.
obviously, id like a decent quality one, but price is also an important factr.
I spent £50 on the 5960 about a year ago, surely theres something comparitive?

Thanks in advance btw

Philips DVP5990 (Mostly around £65)


Toshiba SD580E (used to able to get this from the Tosh website for £50)

From the forums in here I believe the Philips is better and USB 2.

There is also an LG model mentioned in the forums.

In fact you should find the info in the threads below.

The SD-580 got 5 from whathifi. I have one and it's really good indeed. Paid £60 delivered from amazon.

If it's really cheap you're after ...

I got the ONN one from Asda.

24 quid. Upscales. Plays divx and xvid and any region disc I have thrown at it. A bargain for the price.
