Summary: I bought this DVD player after my old one's remote sensor stoped working, universal remotes didn't work either, and its been great, surround sound works awsome, 5.1 anolog jacks on stereo (old School!) but does the job, and remote works.
Summary: I gave this player a great review earlier, but I must amend it. The dvd player now plays the audio track on dvds a few seconds after the video. I haven't yet figured out itf this can be fixed.
Summary: Aside from a poorly designed remote, this dvd player has exceeded my expectations for the price. The picture is crisp, and the sound is amazing. It hasn't had a problem playing any of my region 3 dvds yet.
Summary: We recently ordered the SDAT-989. It's everything mentioned in the 989 description. We could not be more pleased. We had purchased several DVD's from Europe which would not play on any of the 3 DVD players we have here. With the addition of the 989 we can now watch those DVD's.
