Summary: We've had this one for about a year now, I dont use it much but it hasnt givent me any problems. I was very surprised that it also runs data discs. But it's just a basic dvd player no bells and whistles, nothing special my favorite thing about it that is silver color matches with my vcr cable box and tv. It's a good machine.
Summary: when my old rca dvd player finally quit working after six wonderful years, i received this model as a gift. beggars can't be choosers, so i definitely can't complain about the intent, but what i will complain about is the quality of this machine. the number one thing that i don't like is that it takes way too long to load a disc. hey, i'm an american. when i push a button, i expect results a lot sooner than 30 seconds later.
Summary: I used to own this model of Sony DVD player. It played DVD's and CD's well for about two to three years and gave out. I replaced it with another Sony DVD player which lasted a little under two years. I like Sony products, but I was disappointed to see it last such a short amount of time. I also have a Panasonic DVD player which has outlasted both Sony DVD players. Just make sure you fill out the warranty in case anything goes wrong. It worked really well when it worked.
Summary: As say the other reviews, the picture quality is very good. But SONY once again disappoints with lack of basic features and ease of use. I am basing my comments on my $29 DVD (Entiveo) player that died. While obviously its quality was poor (and thats why it died I am sure), the software was FAR SUPERIOR to the Sony. Go figure. I wanted a unit that would last for awhile, and the Sony hopefully has the quality to last for awhile. But, I got a warranty anyways just in case!
Summary: This seems to be an uncommon complaint, but I have found it in a few places and wanted to reiterate it here for my fellow drive noise suffers so they know they are not crazy. I just got one of these today and the drive is loud. I mean really loud. If you want to recreate the experience of trying to watch a movie on the back of a plane this is the DVD player for you.
Summary: I have bought a lot of Sony stuff over the years. Stereo equipment, phones, computer equipment, everything. It was always high quality and very reliable. I was definitly a die-hard "sony only" person. Lately, it seems like they've been cutting corners and this DVD player falls into that category. It seems to play DVDs fine (at least for now), but regular CD playback is static-ridden. I tested the same setup using a 10-year old sony CD player and it played beautifully.
Summary: The good thing about this player is good sound quality,good clean picture but the bad thing is about every 4 hours the picture fades from light to dark for about 5 min.In order to fix this problem,just turn your tv and your player off for about 30 sec.Then u could get back to your movie,cd,etc.Sony is normaly a high-quality brand except for this player.i hope this review helps!
Summary: I've had this player for about a week now and am reasonably happy with it. I bought this player to replace my 3 year old Sony DVD player that couldn't read my burned DVD-R or DVD+R media. Not a problem with this unit -- I've thrown DVD+R, DVD-R, and DVD+RW disks at it and it's had no issues whatsoever, nor has it had any problems reading the several Netflix rental DVDs I've thrown at it. So far, so good.
