Excerpt: IIt's just as well for Onkyo that these reviews don't start and end with perceived value, because the DV-SP406 would fare quite badly. Despite being the most expensive player in this Group Test, economies are more evident here than elsewhere – feel the nasty little remote control, goggle at the tiny display or run a finger over the cheap-feeling fascia and you'll see what we mean. We're not suggesting that the Onkyo won't last, simply that first impressions count.
Pros: Fine upscaled images, with motion handled particularly well, useful USB input
Cons: Sound lacks body, terrible remote, very small display
Excerpt: Although Blu-ray grabs all the headlines these days, people still buy DVDs – and they still buy DVD players. But with brands like Philips, Toshiba and Samsung selling upscaling decks for as little as £40, what's so special about Onkyo's DV-SP406 that it retails for £100?
