    Lite-On LVD-2001

    Design

    The Lite-On LVD-2001 is a sleek, silver set-top player that should look good in any home theatre environment. It’s thin, silver, and looks great. On the front, you’ll find the power button, the DVD drive, various playback controls, and a PCMCIA slot for a memory card reader. The front part of the drive is mostly a shiny black, which looks great with the silver body of the drive.

    There isn’t much on the front of the LVD-2001, but it has everything you need.

    On the back of the LVD-2001, you’ll find a lot more. There are S-Video inputs and outputs, composite inputs and outputs, and digital audio input. You’ll, also, of course, find the power connector. It isn’t stylish on the back of the LVD-2001, but how often do you look at the back of your set-top DVD player?

      

    The Package and Installation

    The package came in a box that was secured using foam blocks. The drive was sturdy, and the accessories were included in a box that was on the side of the package. The box seemed sturdy, so I wouldn’t expect anyone to have any shipping damages problems.

    In the box, once everything was removed, I found a manual that was fully in Japanese. This is OK, considering this is a Asia-Pacific model, but hopefully they’ll ship an English manual in the American version. There’s also the actual player, the remote (with two Energizer AAA batteries), a warranty card (in English), as well as a power cable a composite video/audio cable. The package was good, but nothing that you wouldn’t find in any other DVD players’ box.

    Installation was like any other set-top DVD player. Plug the drive into AC power, and put the composite cable from the output connection from the player into the input connector on the TV. There’s not much to it. As soon as that’s done, you’re ready to play DVD’s.
