I have to admit, I was surprised how good this VERY CHEAP DVD player is. The upscaling quality is great, unless you are playing slightly older DVDs. Newer discs are upscaled perfectly, but I have found that anything older than about 4-5 years, doesn't look great at all. But, all in all, for the money, this is a great DVD player, that you cannot dismiss. There is a ,ulti-region hack for this player that you can do via the remote control, but I was not able to get it to work. Maybe I have a newer model.
The only other gripe I have about this system (I think someone else also brought this to light) is, the remote control that comes with the player is not very responsive at all. Unless you are directly infront of the player it doesn't work too well at all.
So, overall, a good machine, and well worth the money. But, after owning this for 2 months, I am currently looking for something better.
