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.
This product is actually a cheap knock off. Everything about its looks is wonderful. The blue color was nice, the buttons are big and clear, the screen is quite large. The problem? It would get incredibly hot on the bottom after just playing for 5 minutes. It also would just randomly shut off if moved despite being on a full charge. After 3 months it got to the point of having to stay plugged in. Eventually it just broke, with lines running across the screen that covered up the entire picture. Would not recommend.
**UPDATE * I have purchased 3 of these devices over 8 months. They are ALL JUNK! We used them for my children's school and all of them failed. If you are so inclined to buy one even after my review, do yourself a favor and buy the extra insurance. You will thank me later.
Makes loud grinding noises just 2 months after replacing it for one that broke. I’d suggest if you buy this, to absolutely get the additional insurance plan.
Product was delivered defective. It did not play any DVD Video that was place in it. These DVD’s where movies purchased at local shopping stores. I tried 4 times to play different movies and none played at all. The device just spinned and made load spinning noises. When I called technical support the technician could hear the loud spinning noise and cracking noise. I found out through the Amazon representative that it was sold through a third party. I’m very skeptical that the replacement being sent will work. If it too is defective I intend to file a consumer report with the BBB.
this machine makes a lot of noise while playing. the battery is lucky if it lasts for three hours. Also, very finicky as to which disc it plays. Discs with practically no or minimal scratching that play in our computers, other devices get stuck in this device and stop. Very Annoying!
Total waste of money. Piece of junk. It worked well for 3 whole DVD's. Since then I have had to open and shut the lid several times for it to not say "No Disc" every time I use it. Sometimes I can't get it to read a new disc after dozens of attempts, but it will read the same disc the next day after a handful of attempts. AND on top of that, now it will only play for about 20 minutes before skipping and just stopping (again with a new or unscratched DVD). It's going straight to the recycling center the next time I go. Very frustrating.
It started off being a good purchase. But less than 30 days after purchase, it doesn’t play movies longer than 10 mins before it stops. Totally useless is unless you have a show that’s 10 mins or less.
