I have been using the PHD-8VX for a few weeks now. So far i am very happy with it. The picture quality is great. I did have an issue using the music feature on it, but after talking to Allen at support (very helpful) he mentioned that i needed to use a FAT32 flash drive instead of a FAT, it worked fine after that.
I also had an issue with the remote and talked to Allen, he had mentioned it was the internal components having to do multiple tasks. I do find it just a tad slow, but not bad. I bought a Sony universal remote with the learning feature and programmed the PHD remote into the Sony and it worked fine, just took some time to do it. It has a great range and seems to be a little quicker.
I have a samsung tv, dvd, and a/v receiver hooked up to the 8VX and all works great. I also tried the flash drive with the music feature and it works very well.
I am still playing around with the settings, but so far i am very pleased with the box and also very pleased with tech support.
