Cons

Backlight bleeding is a considerably large problem - top and bottom areas of the display appear "washed out", significantly affecting widescreen movies and dark imagery in general

1 agrees

Included plastic stand feels somewhat cheap/flimsy - component tends to wobble and doesn't establish a firm, sturdy base

1 agrees

Unit-mounted hard buttons are awkwardly placed - underside placement makes them difficult to see, resulting in frustrating manual control
