What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good picture and sound, BEWARE of divX abilities I am happy with DVD playback. If I'd bought it just for that I'd be giving it 4* throughout. I am surprised and disappointed at the lack of GMC and QPel support for DivX / MPEG4 playback (yes I know this is stated in the user manual). It turns out that much of my very large collection of avi files is encoded with these, so cannot be played by this player. My previous player, bought in 2004 from H&B, could do this so when burning the disks I clearly did not expect a general reduction in capabilities as the years progressed. If you, like me, have way more avi files than DVDs, don't expect a current disk spinner to play them. Get them onto a hard drive and play through your computer instead!
