'It's able to play DivX video and AVCHD, but these files can only be scanned at a frustratingly slow maximum speed of 3x.'
'The boxy remote control can be clumsy to use.'
'colourful and bright transfer'
Buttons on the machine aren't always responsive
'No analog multichannel outputs.'
'Its smallish buttons lack backlighting, but the play button, along with an eight-way directional pad, provides good tactile feedback for effective use in dimly lit environments.'
'Good price for its features. 1/2 as thick as 2nd generation models.'
'It did not display the full resolution of the test pattern and the image was unstable at many locations.'
No On-Board Memory
'It failed some of the more difficult tests on Silicon Optix's HQV test suite; for instance, the waving American flag was full of jagged edges with the HD-D2'
'the remote is largely unchanged from the HD-A1, which means it's pretty awful in everyday use.'
'Hard-to-use remote control.'
'the operation of the player was terrible.'
'Opening the door exposes a simple two-way switch that is used to select standard- or high-definition video output, along with two USB ports that may be used for future expansion options'
