Summary: Thing didn't work the first day I got it, I fixed it for a couple months. Turns out the inside motor for the dvd was replaced with sony parts I also found out this part from sony was a problem with several dvd players Piece of *&$@# lasted 4 months NICE
Summary: I would never recommend this DVD player. My biggest complaint is probably that it broke down in less than 2 years. The buttons are confusing, the return scan impossible at times and worse of all the SOUND SYSTEM is very poor. SHAME on YAMAHA!!!
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! Although it is great when it works, it mysteriously breaks down after light to moderate use, without warning, within a year of purchase. The manufacturer's warranty is only 6 months, and they don't cover it unless you bought it from an "authorized dealer," which Amazon is not. RIPOFF!!!!!!
Summary: Unfortunately this particular DVD isn't all that great. It doesn't save your spot when it turns off, which is a bigger problem than you think because it turns itself off after being idle for some time. I've also had problems with it not syncing up the audio and video. I've had to stop the dvd and start it again to fix the problem, which you shouldn't have to do.
Summary: I bought this unit based on the price, brand, and the recommendations on this page. It has greatly improved the quality of my stereo sound system. This player has a CD/DVD upsampling function that further enhances quality. You can also forward DVDs as fast as 32x, which is much faster than my previous DVD player, and you can zoom in and out. You also don't have to change the sound cabling in the back if you only have a stereo and move from 2.0 to 5.1/7.1 sound on a DVD.
Summary: I bought this unit at Best Buy in San Francisco almost a month ago and WOW!Thank you Macrohn for your review of this product at Amazon. This player saved my life. This unit surpasses my older TOSHIBA model SD-3750, although the Toshiba was great for the time I bought it(yes, the Toshiba lasted this long, about 5 years and still going.), the YAMAHA DVS 5750 plays all the dvds that I had some problems with playing on the Toshiba and Sony Players.
Summary: I bought this DVD Player for the reason that it can play DIVX encoded discs. I am totally satisfied with this player, sure I don't really can compare it to other DIVX rated players, since this is my first one of this kind, but the Sound and Picture Quality is excellent. I seriously doubt, that it can be beat by much from other players, especially if you use the upsampling feature. I can see no difference to other "normal" DVD's.
Summary: I bought this player solely for its Divx playback capability. That being said, the 5750 is not good enough me. The problem is that it video playsback is all choppy, seems like it is skipping frames. It has to do with the packed bitstream in the files and how the Yamaha handles it. The way to get around this is use a program called MPEG4Modifier, load the file, click on the Unpack Bitsream checkbox and save the file back to disk.

Summary: I've had this player for a few months now. It goes into a Yamaha RX-V659 receiver with a combo of BIC America Venturi front speakers/Yamaha HTIB surrounds/KLH center speaker, and then onto a Panasonic CRT with a 32" screen. For music: Yamaha makes musical instruments, and its electronics reflect that background. DVD-audio/SACD's sound natural. I listen to a lot of classical music, and some electronica.
