I bought this to replace a portable DVD player with a 7 inch screen that I use for workout DVDs. The packaging was great, the size of the screen was perfect. It was light weight and had all the advertised extras. It was great until I turned it on...the sound quality was awful - sorry but it was - I had to turn up the volume more than needed to drown out the sound of the motor spinning the dvd dicsc - seriously the motor was really loud. If that doesn't bother you, then this is a great product at a great price. I am sending it back because of the sound quality - it would drive me nuts listening to it while working out and watching a movie on it would be even worse. Sorry
This DVD is awesome for the price. It is very easy to use with very nice features including portable, tilt screen, etc. I didn't know the brand, so I was a bit worried, but I was so happy with the first one, that I bought two! The one downfall of the DVD is that you can not see the screen well from the side as the picture doesn't come in well. It is definitely a lower quality screen; however, you will not find a better DVD for the price. We wanted this for our kids and it was cheap and perfect for our needs.
For the purpose I bought it for, it works wonders. Now if I wanted it to do what it’s designed to do, be a portable DVD player, I’d have issues. For the first few months it was fine. I’d have it charge during the day so it wouldn’t over charge. Then let it die out while I watch at night to fall asleep. The battery life quickly died out and I found I had to leave it plugged in more and more. Now it only works plugged in. So for me, using it as a nighttime Tv it works just fine
I bought this large screen DVD player with the sole purpose of playing DVDs for my kids in our van on long road trips. The headrest mount that you have to ask for separately is a wonderful thing!! The picture quality is bright and very good. The screen is huge! But I had a few things i didn’t like at all. When driving at 75 MPH down the highway, the DVD player can’t hardly be heard. I wish the volume could go higher. It does have earphone options, but that doesn’t work when you have 4 kids who want to watch it. Also when the DVD player is in the headrest mount, it’s a pain to get the video playing (the included remote works about 10% of the time and is very finicky). You have to take the mount off, reach in between the screen and the base because that’s where the controls are. If you are purchasing this DVD player to use anywhere but in a vehicle or other loud place, or have the option to plug in headphones, then I would tell you not to hesitate to buy this! It really is a nice machine! However, for what I needed it for, it just didn’t work.
I bought this product to replace my MacBook Pro for watching DVDs. It took me a while to figure out how to open the case (good clues on the product sight) where to aim the remote (to the bottom right underneath) so it would work. While I find it is lightweight, pretty easy to navigate once you figure things out, and the picture is a good size, I agree with the other reviewers who gave it less than great reviews; the picture is dim unless you have the screen at just the right angle and the sound of the player can be heard over the audio. The battery life seems pretty good, but I don’t use it frequently enough judge. I haven’t tried to copying function so I can’t comment on that. Overall, a utilitarian purchase that fills a need but is just okay.
5/18/19 - We had a tornado warning and storms today. i decided to use the dvd player to watch dvds instead of watching tv. I have changed my mind. I really like the picture quality. This time i had it on a level surface. Before, it was on bed. i enjoyed it very much. The size of the screen. The fact that i could connect speakers to it. Everything worked out very well.
I can deal with the sound, but i don't like the picture quality. I think there is a way to adjust the picture, but i'm not very good at it. Also, i don't think there are instructions on how to do it in the instruction book.
i thought of sending it back. still looking at it.
I very much enjoy watching a movie, in bed, before going to sleep. I have all the online options, but sometimes you want something from Redbox or your DVD collection. I was so sad when my older macbook pro died this summer and I lost my dvd drive. I got this as an alternative. It works pretty well other than the screen can be hard to view from some angles - the brightness factor - and I have not figured out how to fix that. Still worth the purchase.
