Summary: The box was damaged when we received it but the CD player appeared to be fine. It took us awhile to read the instructions and we had to get professional help to connect the player to our TV, this all took about 10/12 days. My husband was so excited to get to hear his favorite CD's, the CD player played for about 15 min. and then it stopped and never would play after that.
Summary: This unit is a few years/generations old, and I think all the standard reviews about have it covered -- but, a few reviews I've seen mentioned that their unit stopped working, and the took ti back, etc. Well, a friend of mine's stopped working, and I thought I'd share with you how I fixed it (it was pretty simple)...
Summary: Hoping to find a replacement for the recently failed Sony 300 Disc Jukebox Player; this alternative was tried. Wanting the Title Editing feature, it was too complex to use. Returned it and now have another of the Sony product. It is working fine. The novel addition of DVD Play seemed good but was not needed nor wanted.
Summary: This unit is designed for the pre-HD TV's (which are few and far between), on the market. There needs to be a retro fit to make it compatible with the new HD digital TV's now being sold. Also the keyboard plug is for the out-dated "PS/2" type connection and not the current market sold "USB". The PS/2 connection must be apparently only a true IBM keyboard and not one of the many clones that are now being marketed.
Summary: We haven't been using this changer very long, but it has proven to not be a problem for our many volunteer docents to select and play DVD's as requested by our guests. Dependability will remain the question.
Summary: We purchased this for my husband at Christmas. The service was super quick, it is new, and works well...still learning the mechanics, but overall, we are very pleased. I would buy from this seller again.
Summary: I ordered a 3rd unit to replace one of two that had crashed (non stop scanning for a DVD until it got to 2nd machine. I figured the 1st unit crashing was a fluke,so 8 months after getting the 3rd unit guess what non stop DVD scanning... Cause is an obviously piss poor spindle motor being asked to be the center of a DVD Jukebox. How do I know this..
