Awesome Player

Dan D., Newegg
30 September 2007
  • Summary: I like turtles.
  • Pros: Plays everything perfectly - including dual layer discs. Well worth $50!!!
  • Cons: The only goofy thing is that the power LED is on bright red when the unit is off. When the player is turned on, the LED turns off. Not a problem, just annoyingly mystifying.

Plays ANYTHING!

Joel F., Newegg
23 August 2007
  • Pros: Plays ANYTHING! I've thrown it all at it and it plays. DVD, Divx, Xvid, MPG, AVI, it doesn't care. It just plays it. I very happy. Not much else to say. Easy to setup, remote works, easy to program using other remotes, i.e. cable or FIOS set top box remotes, etc.
  • Cons: A little slow to start. But hey, I can live with it.

You can eject disc from remote

Kenneth B., Newegg
28 May 2007
  • Summary: To previous reviewer. You can eject discs with the remote. Simply press and hold the Stop button for something like 3 or 5 seconds. I know, it took me a while to discover this. They should have put a dedicated Eject button on the remote, since that is what people are used to.
  • Pros: I have 3 of these (one for at least 2 years and the other two for about a year). No problems so far. Plays DivX from CD-R or DVD-/+R. (sweet)
  • Cons: On-screen timer doesn't have time remaining count down like all my other DVD players have.
