Buyers Remorse

8 December 2003
  • Summary: WHY would anyone buy this? Doesn't work properly - and It's Expensive. I regret every penny spent on it.
  • Pros: Skips while reading DVDs. Doesn't read CD-Rs. Overpriced. Sony doesn't stand behind their products.
  • Cons: Adequate outputs on rear. LOTS.
