failed at 18mo.

 

This unit has been trouble from day 1.  Very slow to open the tray and recognize discs.  Unit would frequently freeze.  Had to unplug it to reset.  It finally died at 18mo.  Philips customer support offered no assistance. 

Looks good on the shelf ... if you don't expect it to work

Slow, unreliable, failed in only 18mo
