"Very good value for the price"3.5 starson by dlmiley
Pros: Build quality for the price, size, decent picture and sound
Cons: No HDMI connection, no optical
Summary: I bought this little player as an additional veiwing choice for a rental condo I own at a price that won't break the bank. While not world class by any means, it does offer better build quality than many similiarly priced products and it provides decent picture thru component video and analog outputs. I wish it had an optical output for sound - or better yet, HDMI for both video and sound but that is a lot to ask for a low-priced player. Bottom line - this is a good choice for guest bedrooms or other non-primary uses but I would never recomend this as a primary player for anyone except those with very limited resources.
