How to determine omnivorous dvd-player

Recently my father gave me the following combat mission: find out what characteristics is determined by the "omnivorous" dvd player, so it was something to navigate when shopping. With regard to reading different video formats — everything is clear, you just have to check on the list.

I want to ask this: what determines the ability to read old, scratched disks? Which letters in the data sheet you need to pay attention to learn the extent of this ability?

If the task is to player read scratched discs, then it's not really player depends, most of the drive. If I chose the drive to my computer, then it would be possible to find, and so the only to burn a few disks to "spoil" them in different ways and to go to the store.
Although that drive is not affected is the number of read retry if failed to read data from. The instructions do not write, alas. Can try to "feed" different players completely killed the drive and see how long they try to read it. Not to say that the longer the better, but indirectly it may be due to the fact that he tries many times, but it was good.

Any. There is not.

Clear characteristics of the omnivorous (in relation to the physical status of disks) I don't know, but from personal experience - do not take super duper tricked-out units from denon, pioneer and others like them is a very good chance that it will be bad to read a little malsch worn discs, and Vice versa, nonam player from China will be able to read the seemingly "dead" disk. Speaking about specific companies, I most liked the BBK.
p.s. The above is not my speculation and personal experience.
p.p.s. An indirect sign omnivorous - easy reading RW discs. Easy to sense stuck and he started, and not a moment rustled puffed and finally squeezed.

I made a DVD disk with different movies in different codecs and with different types of subtitles.
Went to the store type of "Eldorado", find the seller, told him I want to buy an omnivorous player and showed that for a test DVD. In the end, we 30 minutes found budget omnivorous player.
It was in 2009 :)
