It's also the fastest DVD player I have owned, displaying video as fast as 4 seconds after closing the tray. I just sold my BDP51-FD BR player because I couldn't stand waiting two minutes for a disc to start, so this was a big plus to me. The picture quality is also excellent.
The only fault I can find, is that it won't play SACD's over HDMI. I use my Pioneer DV-48AV for SACD, so not really an issue with me.
I like it so much that I picked up a second one as a spare, as most of the better manufacturers seem to be dropping DVD players, or at least not introducing new models.
Better cd and SACD than my Oppo 980H but not as good an upscaler. I'm tempted to buy two. OH yea, Build quality is noticeably better than the <100dollar stuff at Best Buy.
While the product isn't hefty, the output is. CDs sound fine, but the SACD audio is very good indeed. I sampled the following well recorded SACDs: Mahler 5th (Telarc), Goldberg Variations-Glenn Gould (Sony), In the Flesh Live-Roger Waters [Pink Floyd](Columbia), Blow By Blow-Jeff Beck (Epic), Abraxas-Santana (Columbia), Broken Hearted Blues-Lightnin' Hopkins (Fidelity), The Door-Keb'Mo' (Epic/550), New Favorite-Alison Krauss (Rounder), Celine-Celine Dion (Epic/550), Kind of Blue-Miles Davis (Columbia Legacy), Guitar Town-Steve Earle (MCA), among others. The sonics were rich, solid, detaiiled and dynamic as SACDs are noted for. I am totally satisfied, especially given the very low cost of this unit. I cannot comment on the other capabilities of the product or its longevity at this time because it just arrived.

It was a nice unit while it lasted, which was not very long. When it was working, it worked as advertised. We seldom watch DVDs - it had been used about 20 times tops. Read morePublished on January 28, 2011 by Ed

It's a shame. My 1940CI just quit all-of-a-sudden after about six months of very light use (maybe 1-2 hours per week). Read morePublished on January 25, 2010 by P. Burdick
Very easy to use - quick response time - plays DVD video, DVD audio, SACD, CD. If you haven't upgraded to Bluray and never intend to - by all means, this is the player to get. Read morePublished on December 28, 2009 by Jadomo
