My old Sony DVD died and I was looking for an upgrade to play the Blu Ray discs I now buy. Its tiny, light weight and honestly looks cheap. But, The output of this little guy has been impressive. Since I lost the huge plasma in the divorce, I had buy something cheap. I got a 31" SANSUI and these 2 work together to make a wonderful picture on Blu Ray as well as DVD. It is a smart player too, but I have a ROKU for that so I don't use it on the player. I did make sure it worked but that's about all I did with it.
