Bottom Line:   
bought this from Onkyo's Reburb stock and it has been a flawless player since day 1. It shows excellent piture detail, excellent colors and awesome audio qulities. For an intro level player, I felt it is qquite a bargain for the price I paid in 2003. Shoponkyo.com doesn't sell them this cheap very often so keep looking on their site.

Bottom Line:   
I have the DVCP500 (the 5 disc changer) instead of the DVSP300 shown here, but I had the exact same problem with my DVSP500 that the previous reviewer had with his DVSP300. The unit worked fine for the first few months, but then the performance degraded. It started freezing in the middle of movies, then it got to where it just wouldn't play any DVDs at all. The DVCP500 states "This disc is incompatible with this player. Please insert a compatible disc" on discs that work flawlessly on my Dell laptop. Onkyo should sell the DVCP500 and DVSP300 as "boat anchors" rather than DVD players.

Bottom Line:   
This unit was rated a best buy by consumer reports magazine, and it worked fine both times that I used it to watch DVD movies.

Unfortunately, the third time I tried to use it to watch DVD movies, the unit would no longer read the discs. It failed to read brand new discs, and it failed to read discs which it previously could read.

The only thing it could read was music discs (CDs). So now my progressive scan DVD player is nothing more than a CD player.

It's still under warranty, and I bought all the extended warrantys, so I should have no problem getting it fixed, that is except for being without it for as long as it takes to get it repaired.

Maybe I should not have trusted consumer reprts magazine.
