"Stay away from"1.5 starson by rstoeck
Pros: Excellent sound
Cons: Does not reliably read DVD data
Summary: I paid $300 for this DVD player a few years ago and it has never read "imperfect" DVDs (which is almost all of them) very well. It pauses, skips ahead, and make large leaps backwards. My cheaper DVD players at home can both play the DVDs that this player cannot. My recommendation is to avoid.
