My only real complaint (so far) is that that player does not seem to be "region free" per the Amazon description and the sticker on the outside of the box. When I read the manual, the manual indicates "region 3". When I tried to play a Psych DVD, the player said "incorrect region". YIKES!! After a little internet surfing, I found an unlock code.
