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.
Garbage plain and simple. NOTHING works. It sticks on the first song; IF it can be skipped over (and that's a big if), it then sticks on that song. The sound: painfully tinny, SHRILL, no obvious adjustment works. This is just a shiney black case with no value for playing DVD's. Simply useless. Returned it, fortunately through Amazon. Oh, and talk about design? Directions say to push the "open" to access disc section. And where is it? In TINY black on black on the disc area cover...unbelieveably stupid, in light of the other large round silver buttons. And I had a brand new DVD, as well as an older one to try, so it's not a matter of format.
Would love to know if anyone can offer the name of a decent portable DVD player!
Up-date! DON'T GET IT... had it for about a 1 1/2 months and it just stopped working, it operated like it was 50 yrs old... very slow and made very loud whirring noise.
It's full screen, even when you zoom out there are numbers that won't disappear which is annoying (forget widescreen). No pause button. I had work really hard to get the pic to look half way decent and I'm still not happy with it. I'll probably give it to my young son who'll watch anything.
I purchased this because it had decent reviews, I have no idea if mine was the same as the ones reviewed how it got a decent review. The set up for running the unit is terrible... the color is pale, you can’t just replay, you have to rewind so you can replay.... I couldn’t get it to stop and release the disc...... anyway I gave it a one star because it did show up.... also the remote doesn’t work, almost forgot that one..... I wish I could return it but I didn’t use it right away, and took it out of the box and got rid of the box...stupid me.
I received this DVD player yesterday. Today I fully charged it and put my disc in. I had sound but no video. The only video that came up was the menu of the DVD and when I pressed "OK", it just kept coming back to the menu. No matter what I did, I couldn't get video. I called tech support which was a waste of time. He told me things like, "is it plugged in?" "is it fully charged?". Then he told me to put the disc in. I did and repeated that I had sound and no video. He said, "Oh well, it must be defective". So now I'm sending it back. I had the option of a replacement or a refund. I chose a refund. I read the reviews before I bought it and there were more than a few negative reviews but everybody gets negative reviews and I thought it could be that they just didn't know how to operate it. Well, I was wrong. I should have paid attention.
does NOT play MP4 or bluray as the world technology is today and it will not recognize any external hard drive or usb that is over 32GB....no one uses less than a TB for movie storage and playback it is heavy screen and light base and feels fragile
My children are home schooled. They use DVD players for supplemental class work. I ordered these particular players because of the larger screen. I have been in possession of two of these DVD players now less than twenty-four hours. The screens have both malfunctioned, making viewing impossible. The audio continues to work, but viewing is impossible. I am truly disgusted with this product, and would strongly advise anyone seeking a larger, portable DVD player to seek elsewhere.
I got this to watch MP4 movies off an SD card. It does not support MP4. Seriously? Also, the remote was completely dead on arrival - changed out the batteries twice, but nothing. I mean... I guess I can put it in a closet and use it as a backup in case my DVD player dies, but it's not going to work for what I wanted it for. I don't plan to carry cumbersome DVDs around with me.
Updated: okay, apparently the SD card option does not work at all. I converted my mp4 movies to AVI and it still won't work. The instruction manual for that part of things is useless. (See photo). I will try USB but if that doesn't work, this is yet another expensive item to go to the landfill. 😔
Updated, AGAIN: BUYER BE VERY AWARE... this useless piece of junk will not play anything from an SD card or a USB stick that's from CURRENT resolution standards. Apparently it only plays really weird resolution stuff that's a custom setting for this device... not the normal resolution that most movies and videos are nowadays. It's completely useless. Please see the response I got from Customer Service on this. It's laughable at best. Oh, and for what it's worth... I did purchase TWO 32 gb SD cards specifically FOR this machine so I could put my movies on it, but as my movies are all high res, lovely quality movies - your outdated piece of garbage won't play them. I plan to box this whole thing up and send it back for a refund. Biggest hassle I've ever dealt with from Amazon. People, please do yourself a favour and avoid this product like the plague!
This thing makes a grinding noise so loud, it makes the sound inaudible and causes damage to the disc. The plastic was so flimsy and cheap, and it took me a long time to figure out how to change it from speaking in portugese back to english. I might as well have flushed my money down the toilet!
Doesn't work. No picture, sound, or power. Money thrown away! ADDENDUM: Why is this company CONSTANTLY sending unsolicited emails to me, months after this review is posted? The review STANDS AS IS! NOTE: It's been over 10 months since this regrettable purchase, and I still receive unsolicited emails from "Linda" the company rep! The word "STOP" has no meaning to these people. I wish AMAZON would prevent resellers from harassing their consumers. Once again, THIS REVIEW STANDS AS IS!
Purchased this product as a gift. The complaints came from the recipient, and after I reviewed the product in person, I agreed. The screen is the cheepest!!!! -it can only be viewed when it is perfectly aligned to your center, even the slightest angle will distort the image, washing out darker colors, and adding an annoying shimmer. Thinking that there would be some reprieve with connecting it to an external screen was met with dismay, as continuous roaming horizontal interference lines remain on the external screen. The developers spared not once of effort making this product as cheap as possible. The price should be halved!
