"nice product for reasonable price...one drawback"3.5 starson by Claude Geeroms
Pros: good image
Cons: incompatibility issue: DVD-R specific
Summary: Nice unit overall. One problem: DVD-R's (and DVD+R's)) created on a Panasonic VHS to DVD recorder DO NOT PLAY (DMRES30 - default settings for one-touch-record). Tech support at Optoma, while friendly, ultimately suggested connecting ANOTHER DVD player through the compoment input and play incompatible discs that way!!
These Panasonic-created discs did, by the way, work on EVERY other DVD player I have access to.)...So far this is my only complaint. Plays commercial dics fine.
