Personally I'm happy with it. I'm tired of the POS crap that gets blown out at stupid prices.

I agree.

Cheap trash that blows away the good manufacturers (like Yamaha, no longer CD-writers), I don´t like it

Well given that I recently bought a Hitachi for only about $8 more than the cheap crappy units cost, I don't see this as a problem....

The Hitachi unit is a far better player in any case, just an end-of-line that's all.
