I love it! It does everything it says it does, including upgrading your DVDs from 720p to 1080p. I read the other reviews and got a 6 ft HDMI cable before I started to hook it up. The included HDMI cable is only 3 ft long. I’ve binged on my seasons 1 and 2 Killing Eve DVDs and the picture and sound are amazing. Yes, it has a plastic casing, but so what? It’s an electronic – handle them all gently. Nice size. Can be operated manually since they actually put usable buttons on the front of the player. I haven’t ripped any CDs yet but I’m looking forward to using that feature so friends and I can share music and make the flash drive the new mix tape!
