Sony DVP-CX985V review

 

Sony DVP-CX985V

Highest disc capacity on the market; quiet operation; plenty of connectivity; numerous sorting options; plays multichannel SACDs.

Extremely bulky; somewhat unwieldy navigation; no Internet lookup; so-so video performance.

For DVD junkies seeking to reduce clutter, this relatively inexpensive changer makes navigating hundreds of discs a bit easier.

Blu-ray Anyone? My wish list.

 

I agree with all the comments relative to the explorer and general organization/searching. How it could have passed sign off from upper management is a wonder to me. I have to keep a hardcopy list printed next to it so I don't have to spend 2 hours ...

secures my collection

interface, defining and finding movies.

I bet Sony wants to sweep this under the rug

 

Audio and Video quality are superb, attractive cosmetics

Horrible interface, aggrevating user control which makes you want to go postal, autodetect is useless

I bet Sony wants to sweep this under the rug

 

I am a movie geek. I have hundreds upon hundreds of movies. Getting this seemed like the best idea ever. Boy, was I wrong. Inserting 400 discs was easy. They fit nicely, although the unit is a bit deap (22 inches). A small dent in the loading bay ...
