Summary: I bought this player in the uk for £140. It has been made multi region in the shop by using a sony service remote. I got it to replace a panasonic dvd rv31 which I feared may soon fail. I have got too many dvd's (250) to be left without a player. The first thing I noticed was the picture.
Pros: great picture quality. Mp3 playback. RGB output. Optical and coaxial digital output. Comprehensive on screen display. 6 disc resume. Quiet mechanism. Remote control can control many makes of tv (but only power, volume and source)
Cons: not much information on front display. slow layer change. Player can get very warm in a confined space.
