General Comments
Worthless piece of equip!! Well, concidered the
low price,one couldn't expect better maybe, but
there are a lot of other budget players that are
much better.
This one has so bad picture quality that most
menues on DVD's are unreadable and you have to
guess what you're selecting.
When playing audio discs or MP3's...the whole
player starts to vibrate and generates a loud
hum when the disc is spinning. The hum is so
loud that it can be heard even though the audio
level is at normal level.
The player won't play Lord of the rings, which
my dealer told me was a wellknown problem..
I was given instructions on how to come by this
problems but IF it works you'll have to wait
several minutes (4-5) until the DVD starts
plaing..as I said in the beginning, I would rate
this player as worthless piece of junk !!!

Well, it actually CAN play Lord of the Rings and it actually doesn't take 4-5 minutes, more like 1-2 minutes. I guess it has something to do with some functionality of the DVD that came out after the player did.

This is an excellent player, plays everything you throw at it. Handset Multiregion/Macrovision hack, optical out, good picture quality. I dont personally like the 'ping' noise when it ejects but thats hardly an issue. I had the same problem with LOTR extended disc 2, but apparently theres a workaround: http://www.reviewcentre.com/post32389.html
I recommend it.
