I would say overall its pretty average and a worthy replacement for some of the 1st and 2nd generation players. In brief not bad at all for $65. Hopefully it actually holds up for a while.
I have DVD and BR copies of two movies, Dawn of the Dead (original) and Time Bandits. Now, these are older movies and won't be a great way to examine differences, but I mean to check out how they both look later this week. My son was a monster today so I didn't get much of a chance to do it. Some Blu-Rays showed up from Amazon earlier today and I was able to check out The Dark Knight, which looks good but I am going to check it out on the PS3 to see how it looks there.
If I wind up not being as happy with the picture, I'll just take it back. I kept the box thank god.
Also, anyone have any special user settings or do you all leave it on Standard?
