    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich feature set including DVD+/-R and MP3 compatibility and stylish design at budget price.
    Cons: Poor remote and only optical digital out (no coax digital out).

    Cons: Case is too flimsy and bends causing disk spindle to stick - Error H02

    Summary: The reviews condemning the DVD-S35 due to short life caused by the H02 error may be coming too easily .. The new DVD players are more slim and flimsy than ever before and with the DVD-S35 the spindle is located right at the top of the cabinet. Time ... read more
