We needed a second DVD player for the bedroom, so we bought this unit on sale. I got a lot more than I bargained for, so to speak. It is sleek, compact, and fits nicely in our enterainment center. It has some great features. You can stop your DVD, or even take it out of the player. When you turn it back on, the DVD will pick back up where it left off! The remote control is easy to manage, although some of the buttons are coded strangely. The Main Menu button does not say menu. Play back is great, it rarely ever skips or freezes, something I have had a problem with in the past. Once you figure out what the buttons on the remote control do, you can get around the main menu pretty quickly and easily. Music playback is great. For some reason I cannot get the machine to eject a DVD from the remote control. My VCR also does this, so I guess it's not supposed to? Anyway, for the price I paid, this DVD player is wonderful.
