The AV cable is supplied with the DVD player. This gives the user the full feel of movie viewing experience, this however lacks HDMI output port since it does not have a HD output. This is enhanced SD displaying DVD player and this fails to meet the ouput delivered by the HD DVD player or a blu ray player. This though is a cost effective solution for the user, with a big screen television and home theater audio system this player makes a combination which can simulate the theater effect in the living room. There is no Ethernet connectivity available to the user and also there is no wireless connectivity either. This fails to support DLNA standards also, thus there is no possible connectivity that is provided by this DVD player and also this does not have Internet features.

Sony DVP-SR200PB has generally earned appreciation from its users, including about the durability of the product. Its simple buttons and remote has impressed customers. Peopl do know that it does not has HDMI, which has become almost a de facto standard, if you want to see picture or video on LCD TV with high resolution.
Based upon the customer feedback, we give it a rating of 8.2 out of 10. This is still nice for a DVD player which tends to break over time as they have moving mechanical parts.
