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.
If anything real or imagined is on a disc it freezes up. Rental discs always have a pick or something that stops up play. More than 1/2 my discs have something on them just from normal use. These are disc booboos you can't see. It's very disappointing. The remote is a nightmare for me. It has 44 small buttons all the same shape, size and feel. At least I can remember where the advance button is because the disc has stopped. The picture is so so. High contrast and middle values tend to kind of pixilate. This was not a good value player for me.
I ordered 2 of these DVD players. Both broke within a year. The inside shifted so we could no longer access the on/off switch along with all the other access points. I contacted the company since they are under warranty. To take advantage of it you need to send the unit to China at YOUR expense. They will offer to let you buy another at a discounted rate. The only reason I gave this 2 stars instead of one I'd because it did have a good picture when it worked.
*UPDATE: we used this for one trip stated below....and put it away for this summers trip, the screen is so dark you can’t see a thing and it’s adjusted to its highest level of brightness :( so it was used 1x and no longer is useable.
So far this has been a wonderful purchase for the long trip we bought it for! Our 2 year old LOVED being able to watch her favorite movies! Clear pictures and a nice size of screen. Volume has been good without headphones! Also great that it comes with both car and wall charger. Remote works great from front passenger seat! Also awesome that it swivels! The only thing I wish it could do is lock in place so my little one couldn’t unfold it, but so far she’s done well!
