Having seen the number of good reviews for this product I thought I would get one when I got my plasma tv.
I have given it around four weeks to impress me and it has come up woefully short of doing so. The picture provided is good but the manual controls and remote controls are temperamental and seem determined to annoy than provide their function. I was also surprised at missing things like a countdown marker for how much of a DVD film or program is left to play. My two old cheap Toshiba's have these functions and lacked the irritation factor, and all for less than half the price for the pair compared to this overpriced product.
I HAVE CHANGED MY RATING FOR THIS TO 1 STAR. IT HAS BEEN ABOUT 3 MONTHS SINCE I GOT THIS AND ITS PERFORMANCE IS AWFUL. I HAVE CHANGED BATTERIES, LOCATION AND THE CONTROLS IF ANYTHING HAVE GOT WORSE. AS SOON AS I CAN FIND A TOSHIBA I LIKE I WILL NAIL THIS TO A WALL AS A PERSONAL REMINDER THAT SONY PRODUCTS LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED!
I will be looking out for a Toshiba with hdmi as I have never had a problem with Toshiba DVD players and in the meantime connect my old Toshiba via a scart connection. I will not buy a Sony product again.
I would send it back to the supplier but the timescale has passed for this.
