I have been a DVD fan since their inception and before that a VCD fan, therefore I was looking for a player which played a mutitude of formats. I was not disappointed with various formats is plays. I have had the following formats playing in it:

DVD
Blu Ray
Video CD
Super Video CD
Music CD
MP3 (from mp3 player)
Jpg (from Camera)
Avi DiVX (from dongle)
Mp4 (from dongle)
MKV (from dongle)

The unit has a couple of USB slots (one at the front and one at the back) which allow connection of various devices such as digial cameras, Mp3 players etc, however it is not universal so do not buy it in mind for this purpose. It also does not support NTFS format on portable devices and can crash the machine if you contect a device it can't find. I found this to may dismay when I plugged my portable hard disc into it and it crashed. If it does crash, just turn off and back on. Also MKV is a very new format and standards have not been fully ironed out yet - various times a poorly encoded MKV file has crashed on me leaving me to turn the machine off and on. A tip to the wise, stick to avi or for better quality mp4. The picture quality is better, disk size smaller and the only downside is sometimes the audio needs jacked up. The best of all worlds!

The unit is slow and quite noisy on start-up but once it is up and running it is very quiet and does everything quickly.

The remote control is a pleasing looking thing and fits well in the plam of the hand, however you need to point it directly at the machine in order for it to work; the fast forward and the chapter forward button are right next to each other and look similar, therefore I have accidently skipped a chapter many times.

Brought it early 2011, now it has stopped working altogether, all disks come up with error message unknown disk. This would seem to be quite a common problem for this make from what I have read on the Internet. Would not recommend buying it even without this happening. It was very slow and took ages just to eject a disk.

As I have hundreds of VCDs, I was looking for a blueray player which can play these VCDs instead of having another player for VCDs. This is a great blueray player as it plays Blue-ray, DVD and VCD.
The normal DVDs played by this blueray player has lot more clarity on my Full-HD, 60 inch plasma TV.
I receommend this player.

Took Amazon's advice and orded lead with it.
Plugged it in and it worked first time, only problem was sorting out how to watch on TV, just changed the input on TV.
Slight noise when disc first put in but none after that.
Would recomend it for any one, one bonus was it plays PAL and NTSC, as I have videos from overseas I did not have to worry about playing them.

Draw backs, takes few seconds to load disc, but if this bothers anyone they have to much time to worry about non important things !!!!

It's a great high quality and cheap product but has some hiccups, in short:

PLUSES:
-reads all DivX and xvid files so far, all subtitles files as well
-nice design,
-reads external drives,
-fast USB 2.0
-despite the manual it reads .mkv and .mp4 BUT will not recognise DivX HD codec or MP4 sound,
basically if you have MKV coded with x264 and AC3 sound - no problem, but .mkv with DivX HD codec will play only sound, and with regular .mp4 file you'll get picture with no sound. That comes from experience.
But if you want to play about you can convert files to readable format with free and easy ANY VIDEO CONVERTER

MINUSES:
- can't zoom picture on my Terminator 2 Skynet Edition Blu Ray, which is bit annoying, cos what's the point for hi-res film then ?? ;/ (it may be the matter of bluray disc itself, I'm not sure)
- DVDs left in the deck will start automatically every time when you switch Player ON and on some of them you can't do anything until they'll get to some point of menu (very irritating some times) you should be able to get to the main menu at any time with Home Button, and switch auto play OFF in the main Options.
- because I'm Polish it is irritating that I need to change subtitles letters coding to Central European every time I start DivX file with Subtitles (you can't save it permanently in main Options Menu, weird cos I had this option on my last Philips DVD) BUT it takes only three clicks and couple of seconds to do it so it is not that bad.
Ohh and that option doesn't even exist with .mkv files but considering that it wasn't even supposed to play them, I don't mind

That's all bad and good points I found so far, but for the price of 65 pounds I've paid in ARGOS that's the best I could get and way better. But now I would go for 3200 version that supports DivX HD and you may find one in ASDA for 75 pounds at the moment. Sorry for my spelling
