Major dissapointment with a usually good brand. Even with very limited use our machine only lasted 9 months before the main pwb assy and video deck assy broke. It just came up on the screen saying 'cannot play this disc' didnt matter what disc it was...

We used it very little and it has broken 3 times.

Excelent picture quality and easy to use ; it is nice to look at and completely silent ; Easy to Set up ; The timer is also mind blowingly simple

A bit slow to respond at times

A highly recomended product. Well done Sony. Looking forward to the PS3 Release in November 2006!
