I bought this for a tech-challenged family member who had an old TV and an old DVD player. I thought this would update both and make it easier by avoiding the cords of a separate player. While it does make it easier, the quality is below what you could get in separate units for the same total price. The TV picture is good (not wowza good, but solid), but the DVD player is a disappointment. Despite being installed with an HDTV, the DVD player does not upconvert to HD so DVDs are shown in SDTV (480p). Also, you cannot load a DVD until the Source input is switched to the DVD setting, an annoying waste of time during which you have to turn off programming and watch a blank screen.
If for space or simplicity reasons, someone has to have a combo unit, this is probably okay, but for the same total price and only about 5 minutes of setup, a buyer could get an equal or better TV with a much better DVD player and, in my opinion, a better overall product and experience.
