The player is quite compact. The device includes a touch panel on the front with blue back-light, some basic controls and of course, the USB interface. As you can see in the picture below, the tray does not protrude fully when ejected:
On the right hand side of the front panel, there are several logos, illustrating the formats supported by the player, including Nero Digital. Underneath the logos, is the USB interface.
We removed the mounting screws and took off the cover to gain access to the inside of the player. We don't recommend you do this as it will void the warranty. The layout is very simple and spacious. There are 3 circuit boards (power supply at left, video and audio output at rear, and the main controller at right) and the drive.
The ESS chipset lies underneath the heatsink. When the player is operating, the heatsink becomes quite hot.
On the back of the player, there are several output connections:
||Center Audio Output
||Left/Right surround Audio Output
Left/Right Front Audio Output
Y Cb/Cb Cr/Pr (HDTV720P) output
||Power cable input
||Sub-woofer audio output
The remote control is a typical control and provides all the major functions. Many functions can be accessed with the main 4-way joypad.
