This DVD player did not contain a HDMI cable in the box as the description says it actually contained a triple RCA plug I phoned expecting them to suggest sending a HDMI cable but they insisted on me returning it incase there was a batch fault.
I cannot review the main DVD player as I did not connect it up at all. Other than to say it is very light and compact.
I have ordered a different model instead. Sony DVPNS728HB Full HD 1080p Upscaling DVD Player
along with a seperate HDMI cable to make sure I am getting what I want.
