"SONY is crap."1.0 starson by JIMMYBfrom10aSEE
Pros: The SONY brand meant good quality at one time, but now, not so much.
Cons: Product did not work properly, has slow response, and eventually died completely with a rented DVD inside! SONY's service team was not too worried about it and was more concerned with selling me a refurbished unit.
Summary: DO NOT BUY SONY. Product stopped working properly, then stopped working completely. SONY told me to hire someone to get a DVD out that is locked in the device, then package it up send it to them with $131 and they will send me a refurbished device as a replacement. I said that I might buy 2 cheap players for that price at Wal-Mart. "Grace", with a thick foreign accent,who might have been "Peggy", told me that was my choice and ended the call. SONY just narrowed my search for all future tech products by removing themselves from contention.
