Pros: Packed with features, spectacular picture, easy menu navigation, optical sound, flash reader, HDMI upconvert!
Cons: Yeah, right! Go buy one!
Three words for you... go buy one! What is not to like about this new DVD/VHS combo from LG...? I just picked one up from BestBuy for $199 and *wow* am I sure impressed with the quality and all of the features. This little unit just comes packed with goodies! Setup is a snap. A couple of cables and you are done... or JUST ONE cable if you are fortunate to have an HDMI input on the back of your new HDTV. This thing plays DVDs (all types except RAM), CDs (all types including video and super audio), Divx, VHS and SVHS, and will read removable flash media (even CompactFlash!). I can not wait to download a Divx movie off the net to a MicroDrive and then watch it on my new LG! No more need to burn DVDs! Wow! Same thing with MP3s. Just download to your flashcard and then play through the media reader on the front of the player. It really is that easy. Supports DTS and Dolby Surround sound audio (or virtual 3D if you do not have a home theater system) through optical connection, the remote can control your TV, the VCR clock is "smart" and can read station information through your cable connection, and even grandma can figure out how to program this thing to record from TV (or your satellite box since multiple antenna inputs are supported!). Great buy!
