Ok this is our first dvd player so what do i know . I checked out the amazon reviews and i 'm pleased to say mine worked , works , fine right out of the box . I like the auto fit feature = you can stretch widescreen dvd 's to normal . Lot 's of other features that i need to find out about . Looks ok - very shiny chrome and mirrors . Things that i 'd prefer different - there 's a red light that shines when it 's turned off ! And the remote is cheap and cheasy - not sure how long it 'll last , but for 50 bucks what the heck !
