Aewsome player

  • Summary: This player really holds on to a person I let a friend borrow it for a while he loved it. Used it for movie playing obviously but used it more for it's sound capability's when I took it back he was visually disgruntled. Aewsome player.
  • Pros: Way late review but here it is. Pictures aewsome sound is incredible alot of the products I've bought sound decoders work great better than the ps3's right out. PS3's sound is great but even with tweaking settings etc this dvd player and some other devices beat it in that catagory. the memory car...
  • Cons: None really been happy with it since first time I've used it.

Has the features you want

  • Pros: Need a upconversion DVD player? Well this may be the one you want. With several features for audio and video it can be plugged into so many components (not at once of course). I have enjoyed the quality of this product and am glad I spent a little extra to get it. Looks great with a new plasma.

Best price anywhere!

  • Summary: Overall, it is an excellent deal. There are many things that I haven't tried (SACD, memory slots). But from what I read and saw, it is still worth the price.
  • Pros: Excellent value for the price. SACD (2channel) :(, DVD-Audio :). I have two different flash drives and neither work. Of course there is a disclaimer about this. 5.1 optical rox! Upscale rox, I play DTS audio in 5.1 and it separates the channels awesome!
  • Cons: 2 CHannel SACD, limited thumb drive capacity capability. I have had to unplug and replug the hdmi cord to restore the picture (blank screen).

Good value

  • Summary: Most likely its rebranded Samsung player.
  • Pros: High quality dvd to HD upscaling - same quality as Univeral/HBO HD movies. Plays lots of formats including DivX,Xvid as well as SACD and DVD-Audio. Can output analog 5.1 channels, as well as HDMI.
  • Cons: Power button on remote stopped working after few weeks. Menu is very limited and have a looks and feel of teenager school project work. I was unable to region unlock it as per forums instructions. It can't play H.264 encoded movies.

Newegg Rocks!!!

  • Summary: In the midst of the holiday rush, Newegg got a little behind on completing my order. To my complete surprise, they upgraded my shipping to Next Day Air and I had it before I was even expecting it. Merry Christmas! Newegg is the @!%!@%^!!!!!!!! That is 5 star service. Thanks Newegg!
  • Pros: GREAT value. Excellent picture and sound quality. I am using the HDMI video output (upconvert to 720p) and the digital coax audio output. Works flawlessly.
  • Cons: I wish they made it in solid black.

Good universal player

Sorin N., Newegg

  • Summary: Non-copyprotected DVD runs fine over DVI connection (non-HDCP). No known hack yet (altough a Samsung clone, has different firmware). I wish producing companies think about consumer too...
  • Pros: DivX, DVD-A, SACD, DolbyDigital 5.1 decoding, HDMI (digital video) upscaling of standard DVD.
  • Cons: Zone 1 locked. HDCP protection prevent copyrighted DVD viewing using a regular LCD monitor via DVI connection (with an adapter).
