"I want my $ back - Sony are you reading this?"0.5 starson by bigmeatloaf
Pros: It holds 400 discs, but so does a bookcase
Cons: A minds of its own that will hold you hostage; S-L-O-W; and I hope you have a keyboard. Oh, and it weighs a ton.
Summary: First I thought I just didn't read the manual correctly. That thought progressed (no pun intended) to maybe I should have it exorcised because it is clearly possessed. Now, I just think I am a total idiot for buying a Sony multi changer. This machine changes discs so slowly that the sequel to whatever you are watching will come out before you get to watch the first one. The autoplay 'feature' will politely tell you 'operation not possible' once it starts playing the last disc you watched, no matter what you do (no, the STOP button isn't really for stopping)! As others mentioned, you have to type everything about each DVD in the painful loading process, and if you take it out or move it, guess what? Start over. Finally, if you make your own discs, forget it, odds are it can't play them.
All in all, this has been a total waste of my money. I bought it to keep tiny hands off of 150 DVDs but it turns out I think I would be better off loading them one at a time, it sure would be faster. I am shocked that Sony's engineers and QC would allow a product this operationally challenged to leave the labs.
I'm a very technically literate guy and I rarely write reviews but I am advising you to look elsewhere, this thing is torturous to use on a daily basis. You have been warned....
