As I had stated previously,I had expected to expreience some problems with this player. Why? AS a owner of V880, I had encountered many problems with the inital product of V888 one year ago,I had upgrade firmwares several times and also changed the DVD-ROM.Now, I can say my V880 is stable and acceptable. That is why some people think products like V880 is immature and like a trash. To AVLP2,things became more complex because it was just like a half-HTPC. There must have some problems with the first product. So,anyone want to buy product like this ,should keep this in mind.Hope when it is available in USA,the bugs will all be fixed.
When I say " good reputation" ,I only mean:
1.The I-O data is a worldwide company with many products in either AV or PC area. Personally,I had used many products of I-O daa such as DVD burner.hard disc,and LCD.
2.Within less than one month after first release of AVLP2, there were several firmwares upgrade and also a new software to fix the bugs. So,to now, I think the support from I-O DATA is very good. Of course,I can not be sure whether they can fix all the problems. So you guy are lucky to wait for at least one month to see someone like me to test and find the problems.If the problems you concerned can not be solved,then you can seriously consider whether to buy this product.
