Sony DVP-SR500H


Sony DVP-SR500H is a solid option for your upconverting DVD player needs. The compact size, HDMI connectivity and great performance specs really make it stand out. We recommend it as one of the best standard DVD players around for the sleek design,...

Less than an inch and a half thick, this DVD player is one of the sleekest options on the market

It doesn't have a USB port or SD card slot

With its compact design, excellent manufacturer support and high performance, this upconverting DVD player is one of the best around.

Lasts only one year!!


No troubleshooting would make it work again. Had to throw away and now trying to find a new one. The shipping and repairs would cost more than the $50 purchase price.

Good picture and service for one year

After one year.....Forget it

Great device!


Overall, this is a really good device. But I recommend you to save your penny's, and buy a Blue-Ray player from Sony because its the next generation.

Design, Video read quality

The remote and device feels cheap

Sony DVD player at a great price


bought this at $59.99, so $39.99 is a real steal. works great, but wish it had pause and next chapter controls on the front of the dvd player itself, in case the remote is not handy. only has stop play & eject.

Freezes up and will not play - Do NOT buy!


We have had our CD/DVD player for just over a year. We use it 2 to 3 times per month and it recently quit working. As others have described, it "freezes up" before it even finishes loading the DVD. The power button quit working and the only way to get...


Not reliable, does not work
