General Comments
Mustek V56L

I have found that both the Mustek V56L and the Transonic 56L DVD players have a problem with overheating. The overheating causes the movie to either freeze, lock up or show pixelation onscreen. The way to overcome it is to ensure that the unit is well ventilated.

To do this I simply put four rubber feet beneath the unit (one on each corner) to raise it by a centimetre or two. This allowed for sufficient ventilation and in turn the player has performed well ever since. When sitting on the feet that came stock standard with these units - the feet were simply too low and so the venting holes (which are underneath the units on the lefthand side) didn't have enough room to ventilate properly. Extra ventilation holes to these units would keep them cooler and working more efficiently.

This has been tested with the player being housed in an entertainment unit behind glass doors with a small cable hole at the back.

I hope this review is able to help anyone who has purchased a 56L and is having problems watching their movie the whole way through!
