I bought this YAM!due to good remarks it received from HCC mags.I was very impressed with its video quality CRYSTAL CLEAR PICTURES!all i can say.I was very fortunate coz it is MULTI-REGION at 400usd only.It plays perpectly plays well my DVD'S without any trouble.My room mate who bought his pioneer233 mainly due to its cd-r and cd-rw features decided to bought this YAMMY and sold his pioneer.Reason? layer changed of pioneer is very noticeable.secondly it always pause for a few seconds and then it plays again especially those Region3 and region4 DVD'S while this YAMMY plays perpectly! its quiet too!my only gripe is i was not able to get the champainge GOLD model yammy.I dont care if it is not cd-r or cd-rw as long as it plays perpectly and delivers STUNNING video quality im very much satisfied.LUV YUUUUUMMMMM.

This is an update to my entry from 1 year ago. To see my original comments from (12/29/00 12:28:36 PM) scroll down towards the bottom of this page.

*UPDATE*

I just wanted to mention that this DVD player is still working just like it did when I pulled it out of the box, PERFECT! I have watched 100's of movies without any problems. Sometimes when I rent them from Blockbuster and they have GIANT scratches on them, it'll glitch, but that is to be expected, i guess. However if the disc is new or even has "normal" wear and tear, it plays flawlessly. I still give it 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who wants an easy to use, good looking, excellent picture and audio playing DVD player.

I guess Yam concentrated on looks and quality in build, picture and sound in stead of those extras wich i think is better than doing a "funmachine" with lousy picture and sound........but the same quality with mp3 and CDR support would have been even better of course.

The most anoying thing was that it was so XXXX expensive to do it region free - 100 fuxxin bucks - ROB ME PLZ.

If ure in for a DVD player only to play DVD´s on and u want a NIIIICE looking player then go for the gold finish DVD-S796. U wont be displeased.

Have had it for about 9 months now and it is troublefree so far.
