As well as progressive scan, the DVP3960/37 offers HDMI digital video and audio connection with 1080i high definition video upscaling. You can upscale your existing DVD movies to 720p or 1080i depending on the resolution of your HDTV.

The design of the DVP3960/37 is neat and compact but the DVD player does feel flimsy and cheaply constructed when compared to higher end models. The remote control is just OK, although not well laid out. For the budget conscious consumer, however, these are minor complaints. The Philips DVP3960/37 is a feature rich DVD player with 1080i upscaling, excellent disc compatibility and a price that won’t break the bank.
