Another one hits the bucket......

M. Gomez, Amazon
28 October 2007
  • Summary: Well, I seem to have joined in on the paperweight DVP-NS975V club. My player has randomly had issues powering on for the last couple of months. Sometimes it would, sometimes not. Now, I can't get it to power on randomly and it has officially died.

Total Lemon: Stay Far Away

Ainsley's Mommy, Amazon
21 June 2007
  • Summary: Sony should be ashamed to sell this product. From day #1 I've had problems with it, and would classify it as annoying at best. It was like an ancient, bogged down computer when I would press the "open/close" button, thinking for five minutes before actually doing so. MAYBE. Ya' know.

My $25 DVD play in my kids room works better

Mindy, Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: We paid $300 for this piece of junk. We hardly ever used it, and now it won't play DVD's and won't open. In reading the reviews, it seems to be a widespread problem. I was told by Sony, and I quote, "this is a rare case. This DVD Player has received rave reviews from the customers.

Sony - never again

Michael J. Smosna, Amazon
12 September 2006
  • Summary: I've been a big supporter of Sony over the years, but that came to an end today. I was never blown away by the performance of this unit: I didn't think the HDMI upscaled picture looked that much better than the component video output.

For those who give this item good reviews....wait

T. Taffe "Tracer", Amazon
3 June 2006
  • Summary: Up until yesterday I would have given this player 5 stars (as I see some customers have). But now I have a nice silver paperweight on my electronics stand. Because I wasn't as lucky as some (to have the unit die after a couple of months) I have passed my warranty and would have to shell out another...

Great while it lasts . . . but it doesn't

Crappy PINK screen with HDMI

W. Takemura "Ex Sony User", Amazon
20 April 2006
  • Summary: Bought this specifically for the HD output. First time connected and found the picture on my HDTV is pink. Called Sony - no help no offer to repair or replace the unit - basically a complete FO attitude.

Seemed great but quality and stability issues...

Will "wsmithapple", Amazon
7 March 2006
  • Summary: I was very impressed by the audio and video this unit provided for me. However am very disappointed with the quality of the hardware. After only 6 months the unit started acting up... door wouldn't open at first then it just started shutting off at random.

Extra Star Given for Balance

Mad Dog "maddog6969", Amazon
28 November 2005
  • Summary: I'm not sure where all the angst came from in the negative reviews here. I've had this long enough to know that we got a good unit. The main reason I'm posting a review is to make a couple of comments about the upscaling capability of this unit.

Lemon

Ronald A. Benton, Amazon
21 November 2005
  • Summary: I am on my 3rd unit and this time my 90 days return from the store I purchased had expired. When it works, super picture and the ability to play almost any photo disc you burned was great. Sad thing about this situation is Sony is very aware they have a lemon here and will do nothing.
