Sony DVPCX995V 400-Disc DVD Mega ChangerPlayer

  • Summary: As others have stated... the DVP-CX995V wants to load the last disk used when turned on from the remote or front panel power button. This causes an un-acceptable delay while getting to the item I wished to play. While this work-around is a front panel operation, it is quicker than waiting for the player to 'do its' thing ' before being allowed to play what I want. Press the OPEN button with the unit off... (the cx995v will turn on and open to 'the last slot played).

Sony DVPCX995V 400-Disc DVD Mega ChangerPlayer

  • Summary: This is my second one. After having one of these babies in the living room for about 18 months now (Hooked up to my Sony KDS-60A3000 Display) I bought one for my daughters room. Like almost everything, there are limitations. Nothing is perfect or pretends to be. I agree it is a bit slow, entering disc data is slow and tedious, and when you remove a disc to play on another DVD player or lend it to a friend the disc data is erased when you turn off the player.

  • Summary: CONS: Have owned one of these for the past three years and over the past 6 months the unit started to have progressive failure. Firstly the player started to have intermittent problems reading discs, these problems started as the player failing to read discs during playing and freezing for a short time on an image on the screen on occasional discs. I thought the player was laser may have been dirty and ran a cleaning disc through the system and no difference.

  • Summary: This piece of equipment is a beast! I love it! It may not be perfect, but it upconverts to 1080, plays DVD-R and +R and DL DVDs. It gets rid of all those DVD cases and looks sexy in the cabinet. This is my 3rd one and I have hooked up in a series and it puts a great pictures on a Sony 60in screen. I know there is a move out there to put video on DVD, but if that fails you lose all the video. Here I have it all at the ready, protected in the case.

  • Summary: I love this 400 disc changer, sure it takes time to load a disc, but it keeps the discs safe and scratch free, I might buy another one or 2 I collect TV shows onto DVD much better to have them where they are safe and usable. Don't let the negative reviews put you off this is the thing I have been dreaming about and at a price that is great.

it's easy

  • Summary: I heard one user say that the Sony DVP-CX995V is hard to operate, especially between changing discs. IT'S EASY WHEN YOU KNOW HOW. To Skip 100 discs at a time: On the remote, have the function tab selecting "DVD" instead of TV, or DISC EXPLORER. Then under "Volume", press the "+" or "-" key to skip ahead or back. To Skip 10 discs at a time: On the remote, have the function tab selecting "DISC EXPLORER" instead of TV, or DVD.
  • Pros: Holds 400 DVD's, CD's, etc. Upconverts movies to 1080i if you have HDMI. Without early adopting Blu Ray or HD DVD, it's awesome in my book.
  • Cons: The menu and documentation are lacking. I strongly dislike the way that discs are labeled in the explorer menu. Labeling from the PC in the future is my recommendation to Sony.

No what I expected

  • Summary: First at all I ‘m a profound users manual’s reader. That’s the first thing you have to do, to understand any new generation electronic device. And I study the DVP-CX995V manual from page 1 to 92 so many times, and I got very disappointed with the most important feature for me. The easy and fast disc surfing.
  • Pros: read all kind of discs, even homemade dvd-/+RW,cd or mp3
  • Cons: Hard and grievous access to any disc

Good Idea Very Very bad implementation and service!!!

21 December 2006
  • Summary: This is my first time ever giving a review of a product but this item is so bad and SONY's service is so terrible that I just had to do this. I've owned the SONY DVP-CX995V for 16 month's, Aug 2005 through Dec 2006. I researched this item and read reviews considered the negative comments but still decided to buy it.
  • Pros: Storage capacity is great.
  • Cons: Has trouble playing DVD +/- and duel layer disks, very slow exchanging disks, is noisy and gets noisier with time, poor or no auto movie title input too many other weaknesses to put here.

Very Frustrating - Loses title information

slaperk, PriceGrabber
16 December 2006
  • Summary: We purchased the Sony 400 DVD player in August 2005 and had no problems for several months. However, in early 2006 we lost all the title information we had manually entered. Essentially, the machine “reloaded” all the discs, wiping out all the information. We reentered the information a few times and it kept doing it.
  • Pros: Holds 400 DVDs/CDs
  • Cons: Loses Manually typed title information.
