Pros Excellent component video quality, beautiful appearance, feel of front panel controls
Cons Clunky, unreliable Disc Explorer
Summary This unit is becoming outdated since it lacks HDMI but it is still the only changer supported by Escient for multi-changer controls. I have 3 of them controlled by an Escient DVD manager. All I can say is I am glad that Escient does the disc look up for me. Without the Escient, the Sony disc explorer is unreliable and clunnky. It would lose titles for me all the time, very annoying if you have a large collection. Anyway, that is the only con for this unit. It's fit and finish are second to none and its progressive scan output thru compenent video is excellent. So, to sum up, if you have a large collection of DVD's this would be a good choice. However, if you have a very large DVD collection, I would definitely recommend adding an Escient disc manager or similar product to control this device.
