If I was to give this a star rating, it would be 2 of 5 stars. It performs and plays a variety of video formats so for that, I gave it two stars. So... while the features work, the machine crashes frequently (becomes unresponsive to commands manually entered to the DVD player as well as from the remote). Also, the navigation functionality is garbage. Maybe I missed it but there is no page up, page down buttons on the remote. So, if you're scrolling through 200 movies on your MP4 video hard drive than you're going to go file by file. Lastly, when the DVD player does respond, the responsiveness is like that of a hungover college kid on a Sunday morning. You have to kick it to get it working.
Poor buy. Go with the Samsung (see my later reviews).
