    Dvd Satisfaction

    I bought it thinking it was like my older one that broke, but I'm glad with this purchase cause it's much better than the one I had. Plus in the remote I can open and close the dvd tray, like with the other one I had to manually press a button on the player to get the dvd out. And it plays the movies clear. I'm very happy.

    The remote control did not work

    I purchased this open box. I already noticed the remote does not work properly. But I thought nothing of it because the pandemic hit and thing s became chaotic in the house. I have not used it for a while and I did not have any new DVD to play. Lately, I started to use it again, but the remote does not work. I thought it was the battery. So I bought some new batteries. Did not work. I used my mother's remote. The same kind of DVD player . Her remote worked on my player. But now it is too late for me to return this item. I will try to contact Sony and see what will happen.

    Good DVD Player

    This is a good DVD Player. It is very inexpensive, yet provides excellent picture and sound quality. My only dislike is the fact that there is only a single, very small light on the front to let you know the unit is turned on. It does not have a display, like my previous Sony DVD player, that showed the status (e.g., playing time, etc.).

    Easy to set up !

    This dvd player was so easy to set up and I love Sony products. My previous dvd player was a Sony- I got it 19 years ago and it stll works great, but I just updated my TV and the old dvd player did not interact with it so I had to update my dvd player. I would defnitely recommend the Sony dvd player to anyone!

    Above average, but not amazing.

    It's better than say a GPX, Craig, Sylvania, etc brand, but not as good as a Sony. I got it solely because they were sold out of the Sony's at my various department stores. Still, for the price, features, etc there's really no valid complaints. It's just one can't help but compare it to the competition and so they simply end up falling into second place, but then that's hardly bad considering all of the available choices. Note, if you get the DP132 and the DP132H and do a side-by-side comparison, there's 2 things that might be of interest to some not mentioned by the company. Ok, 3 technically as they do note and tell you about the upscaling HDMI port, that's why there's a cost difference. The other 2 things are an ever slight size difference. Check the specs too on Best Buy's site. The HDMI version is approx one inch wider. Not a big deal, but it is a difference. The other actually may be a big deal to some. Again, check specs and pics on Best Buy's site to verify, but they each come with a different remote. Very similar design and button layout, but the remote that comes with the HDMI version is actually surprisingly larger. Not huge, but put side-by-side with the remote included with the standard version from LG and trust me, you'll most definitely instantaneously notice quite the difference between the two. Night and day difference really. The remote with the basic version feels like what you'd expect to come with a cheap branded DVD player. You know? It'll work alright, but definitely not preferable for most. Whereas the remote given with the HDMI version feels like what you'd expect and want a DVD remote, or even a TV remote, to feel like. It just feels right. Without a doubt if getting a LG DVD player get the HDMI version if only for the remote, that alone justifies the price difference between the two.

    Best bang for your buck!

    Is it the best picture quality? No.

    Will the extra features blow you away? No.

    Is it a cheap DVD player that’s easy to install and gets the job done if you still have a few old dvds you watch? Absolutely!

    The only issue I had during set up ended up being the need to reset my TV. Thankfully not a serious issue however I was extremely disappointed in Best Buy because they refused any type of service beyond me bringing the computer to them or paying excessively steep charges. Very glad to have a wonderful cable provider to swing by the house and took care of everything which is especially appreciate it since I was a cancer patient who is an able to drive I can’t leave the house nor do I have the budget to pay for geeks quad. If you have issues with this DVD player and a smart tv, save time just reset your tv and try again!

    Simple

    This was a perfect purchase for me. All I wanted was a simple 1080 dvd with hdmi output. This one ended up being perfect.

    No menus to navigate through except what’s on the dvd you are playing. I am not a big fan of all the extras that come on the big ticket players. It also integrated perfectly with the LG tv it was connected to...and the remote works on both right out of the box. Couldn’t be happier.

    Needed a small, compact, DVD player that worked well and had remote control ability. Our purchase, with the help of your associate (Robert G.), turned out to be a perfect match for our entertainment center in the bedroom.

    Sony DVD Player - DVP-SR210P - It works great

    First I really liked Best Buy and the pickup process was so organized and easy - I just had to buy some other stuff. I bought this Sony DVP-SR210P based on its reviews, features, reputation and my past history with SONY products. It replaced a Panasonic DVD Player that really lasted a long time and worked great. The Player has worked on everything I have put in it. Original Disks, Copied DVD's in various formats, and even damaged old DVD's. The display is amazing, must be 1080p. It was a 5 minute Plug and Play install. It is a Ultra Slim Design, and pretty small. Not good to set other devices on. I am very careful with putting disks in and only use the Remote to Open / Close. I would think twice if you have a bunch of kids playing DVD's. They will break it. Tender disc tray.

    Perfect for my needs

    As my old DVD player went south , I headed to Best Buy for a new one and a laptop as well . The integral part of my decision to shop here at this location is that every associate / sales rep never makes me feel like an idiot as I am not tech savvy and never pressures me into high ticket items . They are knowledgeable , respectful and very helpful as to finding an item that you want to fit my budget . The DVD player is a perfect match for my budget and living arrangement . Easily programmable remote with batteries inclusive in purchase as well . Win - win .

    You Get What You Pay For

    We purchased this DVD player because we conduct classes at our business. Upon opening the box the player did not play a DVD. The disc tray repeatedly opened and closed on its own without stopping. Figuring we had a defective product we exchanged it for the exact same one. The replacement performed exactly the same way.

    Inexpensive, but good performance and upconversion

    This Sylvania DVD player is obviously built with cost considerations in mind, it is small and very light in weight. However, it does have some good features not found on other DVD players of today. First, it has a HDMI connection so you can get the most from a home theater receiver if you connect through one for surround sound. It will pass DTS and Dolby Digital audio to a TV directly, or to a home theater or stereo receiver. Additionally, the HDMI allows easy connection to modern flat panel TVs. It has a decent "Jack Pack" allowing flexibility to connect to many other displays, such as an older HDTV or CRT non digital tv you may still own that has a composite or component input, or a computer monitor with a proper RGB input to converter cable. It also has a coax digital audio output to allow the separate audio and video connections. These features are no longer typical on DVD or Blu-ray players as they once were. In addition to features, it will also upconvert the standard DVD 480p output to up to 1080p to get the most resolution possible from a standard DVD on a HD panel. Note: this is NOT actual 1080p resolution, but 480 to 1080 conversion. You can't make more detail than the original source provides, however, it does make the 480p standard DVD movies look as good as they can get resolution wise (albeit interpolated) on a HDTV. In general, the picture quality is subjectively as good as from any other comparable DVD player, the picture ie sharp, the details are present, the color is accurate and true, not runny or smeared. Hi-Bit DVDs look very, very good on this player. It is not, however, up to the quality of a true Blu-ray DVD on a Blu-ray player. Note: This player will not play Blu-ray discs. Although built to cost, the unit is fairly quiet in operation, and should not interfere with the viewing experience.

    On the negative side, the remote is "rubbery" with lots of small buttons, the play/pause button is tiny and buried in a mass of other buttons in the central part of the remote face. The unit is very lightweight and small, and does not fit in a standard component 17.1 inch width format. The most annoying thing i that the up conversion must be reset after every play, else it will fall back to 480p. You may never notice this if your TV or home theater receiver also does a decent up conversion job, but it may not be as good as the player is able to deliver. You will have to experiment with this with your own setup. I think it does this to remain compatible with older 480p standard definition only sets, but I would like for the player to remember the setting once set in preferences by the owner, so you don't have to remember to set it every time you turn it on. I also really wish this had a digital readout on the front panel so I could use this as a stand alone deck for audio playback of CDs, so I could feed this directly into a stereo. It will still play CDs without the display, but if not connected to a display device, you may not be able to tell what track and time remain for the disc you are playing. The unit does display this info on a tv display however. Unfortunately, almost no current playback devices have a front panel display anymore, it's onscreen only it seems. For these listed deficiencies, I subtracted a star.

    This is really good for a person that has no need for a high featured movie playback system, or a child who does not cause the family a major loss if it is mishandled, it can easily be replaced (and the parent can address the mishandling, I would hope!) The picture quality is just fine for most normal viewing circumstances, and if you have a really high end viewing system, you probably would not be buying this anyway (but even if you did, it does a nice job of producing what is on the DVD). For its price to performance ratio, I could easily recommend this, if even only to have a back-up in case of your main system unit failure.
