Bought this unit for a 32" Samsung LED LCD, so I was interested in the upconvert feature of our old DVDs. Using the HDMI connection, but was glad to find out it had the optional RCA sound and video outputs for older TVs. It says it can do 5.1 stereo sound, but I don't think you will get a TV to do that without sending the sound output to a receiver or home theater sound system. Used the quick set up guide and the on-screen menus without having to read the larger manual.
We have the older version without the up-convert and it has been a workhorse for 5 years and still going.

Occasionally, brand name exceeds quality, and this is one of those occasions. Player works well usually, but some of my DVDs won't play, even though I have used them well on older Sony and other brands. In these cases, I sometimes need to unplug the unit to get the disc to eject.
Not an expensive unit, but I expected better...

This very inexpensive DVD player is great! I could not believe how HD-like the picture is, but what really amazed me was the fact that the picture now occupies the full screen, not just the center part as was the case with my old Sony DVD/VCR combo. I've been using the player for four days now and have found nothing not to love. I've recommended it to several friends and family members, two of whom have already ordered one. NB: It is necessary to also buy the HDMI cable.

love the fact that I can stop a DVD take it out of the system put it back in and it remembers where I left off.

Needed a new upconverting dvd player since my 4 year old toshiba did a nose dive. What is great about this player is the picture quality is excellent. Everything sony is famous for a picture as close to a bluray picture as you can get. What not so good is the fact that there is no display screen on the front of the player and the only way to see it is to go into the menu on the dvd remote. Also my toshiba smart connected to my sony LED thru the HDMI connection and allowed me to use my tv remote to control the dvd player as well as turning the tv on when I turn the dvd player on first. I thought sony would at least have this feature especially since it is a sony product connecting to another sony product but sadly no.

Replaced a 5 disc player, took up too much room. Small, compact and easy to use

This Sony DVD player is an excellent investment. The cost is low; however, the player provides outstanding high definition, rich color, and amazing sound.

Great Product from Sony

I got two and planning on getting two more for around the house
I only have 2 1040i TVs that will handle Blu Ray so the upscale is good for the lower end bedroom and kitchen HD TVs that only go up to 720p
I like this player, it is simple and does the job and has small foot print and is especially good if you place it below the TV since the controls are on top
Do not try to set your TV on top of this Not a Good Idea and I know you were thinking of doing this! :)

Nice DVD player, and ridiculously cheap!

Bought it to go in our motorhome. I got this model because I needed the RCA component hook ups. Not just the HDMI. (it feeds a SD CRT TV). It plays movies for the grandkids when it rains while camping. Great little unit.
