We have two of these in our house. They are simple and easy to use and mine gets used a lot since I mostly watch DVDs of my favorite TV shows. Great quality at a great price. Small and lightweight is a plus as I like to be able to save space. Performance Has a lot of power for a small player. Runs for hours without even getting that warm. Playback Quality Playback always looks great, even on discs with scratches. Sound Quality Sound quality is good. Works well with my TV. DVD player volume is naturally louder than the TV volume which is great for watching movies. Durability I use my player everyday for several hours and it does great. I bought the one I have now to replace the one I had for years before that and this is the same model. I knew I would be happy with this player. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Like the navigation a lot. Easy to skip forward and back at useful speeds. I have programmed this to my satelit remote and easily switch between TV and DVD viewing and control all my viewing through one remote.
