Much like the other user, I have stalling issues through out any DVD I put in. It is NOT issues with the disk. But even worse is the terrible problems it has with darker transitions. For instance:
When its a black screen and you have credits that pop up....you see a darker patch of black across the screen fully -------Directed By Ridley Scott----------. Like that. It also has similar problems during movie play. One scene, A guy was in a darkened closet, and clearly your meant to see him vaguely. Instead, I got negative (like a negative from a picture) effect over his face. It did this same thing with several other movies.
Lastly, the ease of use is just horrific. I dare any of you to buy this product and think this Unit is convenient. Lack of FF, or RW speeds, Menu options that are poorly put together. Skipping through scenes is a horrific battle.
On the plus sides, the picture, when not affected by this units darker places problems, is pretty dag gone crisp.
Has lots of nice picture quality setups, and sound setups.
Plays all the formats for those of you who needs a guaranteed play em all unit.
Was the best looking unit I saw in many online and retail markets.
Overall, the studdering, and the picture quality issues makes this unit a big ol negative. I suggest finding something better.
The first one (DVP-NS425P)I got had what I considered to be serious playback problems.
While playing various DVD disks, it did not play the video smoothly, but would stop for a fraction of a second at random places during the film, before continuing smoothly. This happened several times while playing the same disk. When I scanned back past the spot where this happened, and then replayed the same section again, it did not happen again. But it would happen again at a different spot, and when I scanned back and replay again, the same thing happened; it played fine.
Another way to describe the problem is, that the disc seems to "stutter" at random spots. These are never the same spot on the individual disks. It happened with almost every disk I played. I have only played movie disks, that I own or rent. I have not played any DVD -R, -RW, +R or +RW disks.
The last time this happened was with a brand new DVD disk, fresh out of the box.
Thinking that I just had a faulty player, I went back to the store to exchange it for a new one. Unfortunately the new one does exactly the same thing. Except it does it worse. The random stops are now much longer. The player is being returned of a refund. I will not get a new one.
As far as I am concerned, this is a bad DVD player. On top of that, SONY tech support has been unhelpful and outright incompetent.
After returning 2 different DVD players, I settled on this unit. DVD playback is very good and component video (480p to be specific) is clearly better than the NS725 and matches the video output of the Panasonic F85S. This quality approaches that of my computer's output. I don't have that many DVDs, nor do I rent very often but my friends who rent often say they have not had any problems playing discs....yet.
All forms of audio that's supported sounded as expected on my mid-high end system. Keep in mind that there is no fiber optic connector for digital audio (only coaxial). I don't have a subwoofer yet but the remaining channels sounded fine.
ERGONOMICS & USE:
The remote control is typical Sony. The button layout needs improvement but I didn't purchase this unit expecting or wanting every feature under the sun. Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) is what I was looking for and basically what I got.
I've tested 4 of these players (via friends and 1 that I returned due to the problem described) and when playing CD's, the CD mechanism makes an annoying sound averaging at least once a second. When playing a DVD, this sound is not produced due to the rotational speed difference between playing a CD and playing a DVD. I ultimately accepted this problem as I will probably purchase a separate, higher quality CD player. Remember, I just wanted a cheap DVD player that had very good progressive component video.
BOTTOM LINE: It's a solid DVD player, but don't I don't recommend it if you think you'll be annoyed by mechanical noises when playing CDs.
