General Comments
When I bought this player it was one of the cheapest on the market (£180). The only cheaper ones were so plasticky and nasty that I would have given them house room :-) The main thing I liked about it was the styling. I thought it looked more like a £300 player.

I've not had any of the problems noted by the other reviewer and have been very happy with it. The play back quality (both video and sound) is not top notch, but then you should not expect such a cheap player to be. I think it is very good for the price.

The player has a built in dolby digital decoder and 5.1 output. I still can't see the point of this. I haven't seen a single dolby digital home cinema amp that has 5.1 input that doesn't also have it's own decoder. In general you're better off using the decoder in the amp if only because it cuts down on the number of cables.

This player is no longer sold. The 2004 model is now on the market, but I would still recomend the 2000 model if you can find it for the right price second hand.
