Advantages: small, can lie flat or on its side, great functions
Disadvantages: ugly, uninspiring remote, alot of connections
Sony have really gone to town on styling with the DVP-F11. Its slender design and the slinky DVD slot see it apart from other machines. This machine is so clevely built that it stands on its side upside down basicly in any position. Its compact size gives it a solid, dense feel like it's been carved from a single solid lump of aluminium.
You would expect something this small would go a bit light on the connections, but it's gone more than full-size machines. Theres a external power supply socket and subwoofer output both optical and coaxial digital audio outs. the only thing it lacks is with a scart socket. Around the front it looks a bit more minimalist. There's a power button, controls for play, pause and stop,headphone jack with volume control, a display panel and an eject button. The on-screen menus are text based and easy to understand and getting it running is a breeze.
Once everything's in place and set up to your taste, you'll find superb picture quality and great sound. so you can sit back and admire such genius in such a small little place.
In conclsion i think it is a slinky, sexy and tactile DVD player that outperforms many much uglier, 'serious' machines.
