To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Only wants to work sometimes. Bought this for a 10hr road trip with a toddler. On the way to our destination it worked perfect the entire time. While on vacation and on the drive home, most DVDs won’t play at all (including a couple brand new ones) and the ones that will play freeze up and we keep having to turn the device on and off repeatedly. If you’re looking for a quality product that’s going to last, this isn’t it.
If you buy this player, you will be happy with it...for as long as it works. I didn't open immediately, but when I did I thought it was pretty awesome. It's made well and has a great picture, I really liked the picture because it wasn't too bright.. I usually buy refurbished players. I have a daughter with severe cerebral palsey. She loves her shows.(barney, blues, Dragon tales, etc.) She looks for her DVD player as soon as she wakes up and we set her up with it. She can't walk or talk, her movies are one of the few things that make her happy. We used this player about 8 days, then took one disc out and when we put another in it wouldn't play. I've tried a couple times, and it won't play. Says no disc/disc unreadable. Even new discs. The player looks fresh out of the box, the plastic is still on the screen. But what good is that if it won't play. I buy a lot of portable DVD players but this is the first that didn't make it a month. She has 2 or 3 working players at all times. I was excited thinking I had found one that was a good size and weight with a good picture. Was already planning to get another next time I needed to order one. I review books all the time but this is my first product review. If you get one of these players I hope you have better luck than we did.
