PS ODE with CD Support? Yes.

This plays everything I've thrown at it so far. The only thing that bugs me is having to combine bin files into a single file on some images but its a minor complaint. All in all, I am VERY happy with it and would recommend it easily.

Long wait

I haven’t yet received my product. A month has passed, I know it is corrona times, but it is a long wait for me.
