Cosmetic good looks
Faulty in 4 days out of the box, on it's 4th. repair in less than a year.
Rubbish picture, rubbish operating system.
The Sony DAV-SC8 is the worst disaster ever to come through my front door. Cost £796 July last year. Great Speakers but the actual DVD unit is absolute rubbish. You can never depend on it playing a DVD when you just want to sit down and enjoy a good movie. Won't take commands from the handset, neither on the manual buttons on the unit. Won't eject DVD's on command. Won't play them either. Seems to have a software problem. Switching off at the plug only works about 1time in 30 goes.
My advice don't touch one , even if it's free. A £25 Matsui DVD player is a million times better quality and so far 100% reliable. I know I'm using one while the Sony is in for the 4th. time for repair in a year.
