I have tried about 30 different DVDs in this player, and it has had problems reading about half of them. Many of these were from Netflix, so they had minor scratches, but my computer was able to read them perfectly fine. The player is problematic because when it has trouble reading, it tends to skip ahead several chapters for no reason. I can skip back to just after the bad section and it will play fine; why did it skip ahead so far? It often plays fine through 'bad' sections on a second ret...

excellent stopgap
 
i purchased this equipment for two features that matched my first generation hi-def mitsubishi. it would 1) upconvert thru component connections and 2) optical audio output. it does both admirally. it is sensitive to grease smudges and will pixalate occasionally. keep those discs clean!! it will keep it's hi-def resolution setting until you put a copy protected disc in then it will drop back to 480p and stay there until you reset it. a minor inconvience but it cost it a star. for an under $70 p...

Good picture, finicky optics
 
I have a Pioneer Elite 1080i plasma, so I decided to go with the lesser LG model (rather than 1080p DN798). I am truly pleased with the picture quality of the DVD's. I have two complaints, but they wouldn't stop me from buying this again: 1) The DVD has to be spotless. Scratches and dust cause the player to freeze for a while and then skip large chunks of video. Not a problem for videos I own, annoying for videos I rent. 2) The default display quality is 480p, and the playe...

Very Cool
 
This is one very affordable media center. A lot of options with DVD's including DVD-Rs DVD+Rs and RW's. Only thing I haven't figured out yet is whether or not the USB Media host will support an external HDD.

a replacement remote
 
It is everything it is supposed to be. It works and replaced the one my dog chewed to pieces. Glad I found the exact one.

Upconverters are even cheaper now
 
I've had this puppy for over four months now and not a single problem with it, except it could have included an HDMI cable with it in the package! I got it for a womanfriend who's hi-def teevee (Samsung Vizon widescreen) had never had a chance to go through it's paces because we can't afford digital cable and had no hi-def player. The upconverter and progressive scan features make every movie seem like the first viewing. Lately I've notice upconverters going for less than the 49 bucks I paid for...
