Summary: Of all the DSS systems on the market, I believe that Sony provides the best performance and functionality. The bugs in the system are only minor annoyances. Now that Congress has passed a law allowing sattelite providers to show local network stations, there is no need for anything else besides the satellite hook-up.
Pros: Installation was a snap; RF remote works all over the house; easy to use; great overall performance
Cons: program guide constantly updates itself - software bug?; RF remote didn't work initially
Summary: When buying a DVD Player don't get taken in by the multiple disk DVD players. I do recomend getting a DVD player, better sound and picture then you can imagine. However do not get the multiple disk DVD/CD playes. They say the Multiple disks are for playing CD's but the CD's don't sound as good as a good CD Player and The Multiple Disk option could cost hundreds of dollars more.
Summary: I have greatly enjoyed this product. I think sony typically makes qaulity stuff these days and after having this cd play I would buy other sony products. It is really nice having most of my favorite cds already inside of the player. This keeps them from getting scratched or lost and lets me switch from cd to cd really fast. Great Product!
Pros: It has an option that lets you program the names of each CD, sometimes it goes away after programing
Cons: It has an option that lets you program the names of each CD, sometimes it goes away after programing
Summary: I like the PS2 but I played the xbox and the graphics appeared to be a lot better/sharper. I also noticed there were sockets for up to 4 players, no need to buy extra socket island. I really like the PS2's controllers/paddles, they provide for quality play.
