    When you first look at the LVR-1001, youíll notice that it has two drive trays, which is very unique. In fact, Iíve never seen a DVD player with two drive trays.

    Besides the two trays, the LVR-1001 looks extremely similar to the LVD-2001. The 1001 is a lot thicker, however, and includes navigational buttons right on the player. The 2001 also has a vertical PCMCIA slot, while the 2001 has a horizontal slot. There are many more buttons on the 1001, which makes sense considering the extra drive. The LVR-1001 also features front composite out ports for easy connectivity.

    On the back of the player, youíll find an S-Video port, Component Video ports, Composite Ports, a Digital Coaxial Port, a Digital Optical Port, and an Analog Output. There is also, of course, the power. Quite a few, arenít there?


    The Box and Installation

    The box was a standard cardboard box that was fairly large. The drive was secured with Styrofoam blocks, and it didnít seem like it would break during shipment.

    Once everything is out of the box, youíll find the player, the remote, two AAA batteries, a manual, a warranty card, a composite video/audio cable, and a AC power cable. The manual, however, was just a photocopy packet of about 30 pages. Considering this is a preproduction unit, I canít hold this really against Lite-On, and they hopefully will package a real manual in the final shipping version of the player.

    Installation was nothing special, but there was one twist. Once the player is plugged in and the standard composite (or S-Video or Component) cables are hooked up, youíll want to hook up yet another composite (or S-Video) cable to an outside source, preferably the TV for recording, the real benefit of this player .. If you donít want to hook it up to the TV, thatís fine, it wonít effect playback of DVDís. Thereís also a front hookup location in case you want to hook something up later and donít want to go to the back of the drive.
