Great value for a small machine

 

This is a great machine which is much smaller than previous models with same functions. It's so light and small, and can be easily fit almost anywhere. However, because Sony does a great job to reduce the body of the machine, the transformer is located...

The picture is very good, which is what you buy a BluRAY for. Physically loading a disc is SLOW. It is several seconds before the tray reacts to an "eject" command. This is inexcusable. Digital loading (starting the movie) is good, but NOT fast. The...
