Pros: Affordable and compact
Cons: It doesn't always play the dvds.
The first few months were great. But now this unit has gotten fussy, playing certain dvds and not others. Could you imagine my exasperation when it would not play the second disc of "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring"? I would suggest paying more for a name brand rather than going for the cheap route. And don't always follow the glowing reviews on web sites. Maybe they were put up to it for a quick sale. Also, the instruction manual is perhaps the most obtuse I have ever read in terms of setting it up and troubleshooting.
