Summary: 9 years later this dvd player has played a 1000 movies and still works like the day I bought it. The sixth sense was a new release when I purchased this dvd player, I believe that was late 1999 or early 2000.
Summary: I just for the heck of it thought I'd take a look to see what people are rating this player...and was surprised it wasn't 5 stars across the board. I have been using this player as my only dvd player for 7 or 8 years now, and I have NEVER had any issue with it. The thing is bullet proof - I need to upgrade as I just bought a new HDTV...but it will be going up to my son's room...so we'll see if he can manage to break it. Great job Sony!!
Summary: We bought this DVD player when it first came out and continue to abuse it with weekend DVD marathons and such. It hasn't left its spot in the entertainment center since the day we bought it as there has been no need for maintenance or repair. It provides a lot of options but isn't overly complicated to operate. In my 25 years of experience with Sony products, they have consistently been outstanding in quality, durability, and reliability.
Summary: I am just another in the list of customers that spent big bucks for a product that never really worked. At this point in time, I have sent Sony customer service an e-mail and am curious to see what they say now that they have had numerous complaints and a few class action suits. If they just would take care of their customers in a reasonable manner, they would have a very loyal clientele.
Summary: Obviously there must have been an issue with a lot of the players that were made with this model #, but I haven't seen it. I've had the player for 6 years + and never had one issue with it. its the first and only stand alone dvd player i've had and works wonderfully. I also own 2 sony tvs, a sony reciever and vcr and satellite system and haven't once had an issue. I think that sony has continued their product quality no matter where they're built.
Summary: Bought mine in 1999 and it worked flawlessly for the first year, then BAM, movies would freeze in the middle of the movie or skip and jump to another chapter, usu. backwards. Even after air and regular cleaning as advised it still did it. Then it stopped reading DVD's. It would error and say "insert disc". Stupid me did not listen to other's complains about new Sony products nowadays and bought another Sony DVD player which did the same thing.
Summary: I purchased a sony DVD player (DVP) one year and two months ago. This week it just stopped playing (would not recognize the disk) After doing the standard cleaning, air blowing,powerdowns and etc., recommended by Sony. It still would not work. I payed $129 for this player and Sony wants $132 plus postage to fix it after one year and two months. Go to their service web site and put in the information pertaining to the DVD unit you are looking at.
Summary: I replaced the CD Drive on my old pc with a DVD Drive, and played a DVD. Works fine. Then I put the DVD in my Sony DVD player and it skips every other minute. All these days (3 years), I thought it was problem with the DVDs, but I just realised it is the Sony problem. I've had this problem after since 6 months of purchase. I stopped Netflix stating that their DVD's skipped a lot. Sorry Netflix, it is my piece of junk called Sony.
Summary: OK this particular model is defective and there is a pending class action suit against Sony. It can rarely get through a DVD without having some sort of audio or video problem. I would not reccomend this player to anyone.
