I just got it today and have tried to verify the claims of other reviewers . No go on most formats . It plays original dvds and cds and plays mp3s and jpegs . However , it does not play windows media and i can not get it to play any of my divx rips . I guess that i can not complain since it does not actually claim to play vcd / svcd formats , but others say they can . Also , it was only $ 39.99 ( after rebate ) with free shipping and no tax so overall it is a decent player . Good quality video .
