Junk

 

Can't think of any

Don't buy, blue LED is annoying, upconversion does nothing for the picture on HDTV w/ HDMI connection. There are much better DVD players on the market for less money

Horrible. Worst player ever.

 

It's truly the worst player I've ever had the misfortune of owning. Or being in the same room with.

It powers up. It read + and - DVD-Rs

Ugly. Poor display quality. Pauses all the time, such as when it switches layers, you blink, or the day of the week has a "d" in it. That blue LED across the front is horrible

Electric blue disk tray

 

Has a digital audio out

The bright electric blue light on the tray is annoying. It can be turned off via the setup, but after the device is turned off and back on, it resets to BRIGHT ELECTRIC BLUE. A big pain to look at, my wife hates it, I'm returning this item

You do get what you pay for with this one

 

Maybe I just got the bad apple but I had some real bad luck with this player. I just purchased a new 56 inch HD TV and needed a DVD player with a HDMI connections. I thought Toshiba was a far better brand than Phillips and I was not going to dish out ...

Looks real nice

Stopped working after 6 months small remote hard to adjust picture settings.

You get what you pay for.

 

I went into Best Buy looking for a DVD player for less than $100 with DTS capabilities and an optical output for audio and I found this player. There was also a Philips but it did not have an HDMI connection. After taking this little guy home I could ...

Very slim, one of the lowest priced upconversion DVD players, HDMI and optical output.

Distracting blue light, no backlighting on remote, DVD pauses when upconverting.
