Summary: I think it lasted a couple of years, then all of the sudden. No disc. It can't seem to decide which format to choose. My portable Samsung is still kickin after lots of abuse. Looks like my next one won't be a Sony, I can't tolerate paying lots of money for a low quality hack.
Summary: This DVD Player was great, a 5 star marvel until 3 days ago, and now it doesn't work at all. "No Disc," it says, and the next thing you know, it's not a matter of a smudged disc, as I cleaned it. It's not a DVD-RW, it was the movie, Grosse Point Blank. Then the Big Lebowski. Then Independence Day, Face/Off, and the list grows. No warning, no signs, just suddenly, "NO DISC.
Summary: I've had this DVD player for a little over a year now. And before a few days ago I never had any problems with it. My only complaint back then was that the remote didn't have numbers on it making it somewhat difficult to do a few things. But that was only a minor problem. Now my player won't play more than a few seconds of any DVD. I'm lucky if I can even get to the menu. The player just sets itself back to standby mode. It does this with or without a DVD in it.
Summary: First off, when you turn the unit on, it is not really on. It requires at least another button press before it decides to turn "on". However, the worst aspect about this product is it takes forever for the tray to eject from a cold boot. For example, I click the power button. But the unit is not on, it is on "standby". Then I click the eject button, and it takes an agonizingly long time for the tray to eject. This sort of defeats the purpose of even having DVDs.
Summary: It's design and the brand name caught my eyes at the first glance. And I picked it because it supports VCD as well, but later I found out my brother's (less expensive) DVD player from a different infamous manufacturer (...) can do more than this sony does. Especially this sony does not support CDR videos, which really makes me wanna return it. I am not saying this sony (...
Summary: Very simple to set up and operate. Picture is great, and great features. Only two complaints... the Sony will not play CD-R, and digital picture cd's, and the remote only controls the TV volume (no channel control etc.
