Sony DVP-NS700P


Silver bullet There's no denying the appeal of the DVP-NS700P's sexy lines and distinctive silver face. The angled drawer opens quietly, and a disc spinning inside makes no noise to interrupt quiet movie passages. A convenient jog/shuttle dial on the...

Sweet styling and ergonomics; picture adjustments; excellent 4:3 performance; good progressive upconversion.

"I'd buy it again with your money."


It's the best thing i bought in a long time.The reason i did so was from a friend who stole his and left it in my house.I was so impressed that i decided to actually BUY my own.I highly recommend buying it,but i strongly do not recommend stealing one.
