    Anyone own or have any experience with this model? I just bought one from a friend for $150. What's the good, the bad and ugly on this unit (video quality, sound, etc.)?

    I have this unit, it's the 300+1 DVD mega changer if I'm not mistaking.
    The positive is: convenience, you don't have to get up to change disc. Good Video and Audio quality, not exceptional. disc flipping, smaller than some of the changer from other manufacture.
    Negatives : noisy mechanism, doesn't play cd-r or cd-rw. (it will play certain cd-rw's, just experiment) slow because of the large amount of disc. Jams and incorrect disc slot return. No progressive scan.

    If you have a large amount of cd & dvd's than you've got a deal.

    I also have this unit. For storage sake, like boxed sets (such as all 7 seasons of Star Trek-TNG)it is great! Great video/audio. Non-progressive scan, plays some cd-rw's (may play cd-r's if model has 'B' designation). Smaller than the Sony 200/300/400 disc cd changers. Caution, NOT to block the hinged door, which lifts from the top before folding down! Also,NEVER turn off the front panel 'power' button (leave in Stand-by/RED mode) or you will lose stored disc data). The GUI interface is a bit tricky to get used to, but, if it works for you, the $150.00 will be worth it! I already have another 100 (or more discs) ready to be stored and i am seriously looking at the Sony DVP-CX875P (w/progressive scan) as a second changer.
