The Product has many Lacks!
This Product is actually very slow, You can never change songs so fast. Pen drive needs to be FAT32 and should be under 32 GB if you want to operate it with less hassle otherwise its all a mess. Movies through pen drive is an issue, Supports very less formats for movies. Sound is good only till first 10-15 minutes, then it will reduce-increase itself. Overall not worth wasting 14000/- Rs.

Gorgeous yet needs to be a good performer as well
Bought this product a year ago,the sound clarity is very gud,has stunning looks but its a shame that it cant play 720p videos,mkv format videos.Other than that with a software update an equilizer should be included with better graphics but overall its a good product!
Keep it up Philips!

Its like a beatiful lady without brain
When I bought this product setup is so simple and i am able to do it in 5 mins after unboxing.
When it comes to User Interface - Philips really have to catchup a lot with others.
Really it scores 0 for 100. It could have gone for grid interface rather than List interface. If you have 100 mp3 in a folder if you want to go to the last one trust me it is so painful. Responsiveness of the player when choosing songs is very slow. It does have a bug- tried one mp3 and it is jumping to somewhere in some folder. Not sure why.
Also to choose the [preferences Menu] under setup we need to keep the disc tray in eject mode. That doesnt sound sensible. It must be possible at any case.
The speaker sounds option under audio option is also having the same problem. Disc mode + tray eject should be done to fine tune them(Really doesnt sound sensible - as I fine tune based on USB MP3 or movie) - But luckily as mentioned in another review its not the case. I can relatively fine tune my individual speaker and woofer volume that way boomness can be reduced.
Coming to the Playable format -
It says it support mpeg4. But doesn not play mp4 format. II have mp4 files with 800MB. if i have to encode the same quality movie to avi it is going around 1.3 GB. This is little painful when it comes to storage of my movie collection. Hope philips have tried saving on licensing. But even a lame player would support mp4. I am really expecting for this codec support in the firmware upgrade even if not mkv as philips have mentioned mpeg4 support is there.
Philips really scores in the audio section -
better than anything I tried so far in this price range(even proved to be better than any best brands). But absence of equalizer does disappoints me as box of this kind should provide an option to tweak sound to our flavour.
coming to connectivity -
It have plenty of options for stereo input. Aux1, Aux2, mp3 link, and it goes on. But this does not provide any means to feed 5.1 audio from other devices by any means. No 5.1 input (RCA or 3.1mm jack or HDMI input).
Physical build quality-
The look is so cool. Ful polish black definitely decorates the room. speaker looks simply ornamental. Also performance wise. The Player has touch buttons. really cool features in this aspect.
I would definitely recommend this product if and only if philips add format support for mp4 (& or ||) mkv and improvement in the user interface + graphics equalizer.

Even powerful than a Rs. 1 lakh HT system
I bought this home theater as a Christmas Gift for my family for around 16k......and it's like....WOW.....The sound is just amazing....even louder and more thumping than my friends BOSE HTS.
Please PHILIPS.....do some changes in the upcoming models....like....supporting of common video files like mkv. and mp4.....also there should be a 2-way HDMI port, that means output of video and input of the tv sound through 1 hdmi......that is common in panasonic HTS.

Good Sound quality
Manual Equalizer should be there. Control for to minimize or maximise bass should be there. User manual should be in more details
