Summary: I can't praise the unit highly enough. When it was alive. I does run warm but with decent ventilation it seemed fine. I have had mine for 2 years and now have 3/4 dead HDMI inputs. Not exactly dead but not ideal either. Still working fine via component but that's not the point. I selected this product for multi-HDMI ability. Oh well, at least I know for next time that 1080p upscaling ISN'T worth the extra money. Sound is great.
