This DVD Player is the bees knees. It will play just about anything. The sound and picture quality are excellent. The user interface and navigation through the menu and submenu's is childs play.

The unit is very slim, allowing it to fit into my existing Tv base unit ontop of my VCR. In addition to the DTS optical output it has 2 VCR sockets, which ensure easy integration into your existing Tv, VIDEO and SAT reciever setup.

I am impressed with the standby mode which virtually switches the whole thing off, saving you a bit of electricity.

The only poor part of this superb unit is the remote control. It is a bulky black plastic cheap looking remote which does not suit the slim silver stylish DVD Player.

The documentation supplied with this unit is clear and concise, but the user interface is so easy you won't need to read the manual.

I would have to rate this product 9.9/10.

More information is required to get a vh from me I'm afraid. If you do edit please let me know and I would be happy to reread. A good start and welcome! Carol:)

The quality of the picture is wonderful from DVD, and yours seems like an absolute gem. Your op could easily have got the VH rating with the addition of a little more information. Can I suggest that you take a look at some other ops on DVD players in general and see the type of information thats missing. Its hard knowing what to add when you first start here, but you can believe me when I tell you that you have made a good start..Welcome..Baz
