"Awesome that it also plays .avi and .mpg"4.5 starson by thuldaai
Pros: Plays DivX, avi, mpg (and prob more) besides DVD's and CD's
Cons: none yet (have only used it a few days)
Summary: We got this as a gift so we can watch our US DVD's while living in Europe for a while (stupid region codes!). To our big surprise we're also able to watch .avi, and .mpg files burnt onto DVD's, which is very convenient as we ripped and compressed many of our DVD's before moving to Europe (one HD is so much smaller than 500 DVD's...).
We also like that it's very small, slim and light. No problems whatsoever with the remote or the way it works.
So, we've used it only a short time so far and hence cannot judge its longevity, but so far we're very impressed by its capabilities.
