Eventually re-placed my faithful Panasonic A160 which I bought in Nov '99 with the Philips 729 DVD Player Black (Silver Version is Model 728) Bought this from www.tesco.com with a Free copy of Finding Nemo for £65 This is really the first anything I've bought of Philips besides a Freeview decoder which I only just got too but haven't set up yet. Now I'm well pleased all round, Great build quality, looks, picture and sound. Easily made M/Regional straight out of the box!! The picture is stunning and sound is intense through my Panasonic DDex/DTSes Receiver. This compliments my new Toshiba 32Z44B (Silver) which I'm also well pleased with, first time I've appreciated a Widescreen Picture. My set up is from top to bottom:- Toshiba 32Z44B Television SILVER Philips DTR 500 Freeview Decoder SILVER Philips DVD 729 DVD Player BLACK Panasonic SAHE 100 Receiver BLACK Technics SL-PD9 CD Player BLACK Luckily after some worries the fusion between silver and black is a beaut. Last year I bought a pair of JPW Floorstanders black with a Silver top front so this matches in with the Silver equipment at the top and then the black finish at the bottom with the black gear, fused more so with a Silver stand. My only gripe with the TV is I find the Scart sockets a bit flimsy which feel weak/ a bit cheap and the DVD Player doesn't seem to have an eject button on the remote. For both some other people may be disappointed with the lack of S-Video or Component connectors. I find Scart the business. Surely SCART is the best option, in Europe anyhow? Any interesting comments in particular to the Philips DVD 728/729 or the 32Z44B? How have others found these models?
