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.
The picture is very good on this model. I saw other reviews that praised the sound. I found that it isn't as loud as my region 1 portable dvd player. At full volume, it's only at a level that would be 14 (out of 20) on my other player. Also, some controls work better on the face of the dvd and others work better by using the remote control. The open lid can be hard to close. I found that it latches best when pressed just about the open button. I appreciate the freedom to watch dvds that aren't released in the US.
Took this on a trip, it didn’t even last a week. Had to buy a second unit on the road from Walmart, which has already outlasted this one. The video games I downloaded, it wouldn’t even let me select most of them from the unit. Missed the return window because our trip was delayed so now I’m stuck throwing it out. Waste of money, do not buy. Edit: customer service contacted me to try and fix the problem. They are issuing a refund since I had already bought one to replace this one. Customer service gets the stars ⭐️
Original unit I received did not work. I was in contact with the vendor who immediately sent me a replacement. Vendor promptly followed up to be sure I was satisfied with the replacement. Vendor was courteous and easy to deal with. I am very happy with the product. Exceptionally sharp picture, much better than I expected at this price. Anything can go wrong occasionally but when I the vendor jumps through hoops to make it right I am a happy customer.
I bought this at the end of May but in early August it would not turn on either with the outlet or the battery. As directed by Amazon I contacted ieGeek customer service. Iris responded quickly and after a couple of conversations I was offered a replacement. It arrived in just a few days. I enjoy watching my DVD's on this portable player; I take it all over the house. I've had the replacement for about a week and everything is fine. I really appreciate the great customer service from ieGeek and Iris. Thanks.
On October 2, 2019 the replacement DVD player also stopped turning on, with either the battery or AC. Awaiting a response from IeGeek customer service.
I thought the player itself had a great design as for the remote control no good. I bought this for my wife who is in a nursing I facility due to a mild case of dementia, she loves watching movies & had a lot on hand. The activity department lent her the portable one they have so I thought I would get her own after looking it over, the remote for it was a very simple design & easy to use. I guess when I ordered this one I thought the remote would be similar but after looking at all the numbers & small layout on it decided against it. I guess I should have done a little more research om it but will keep as a gift and look for a simply on for her, Thanks though for the fast delivery & like I stated it is a nice design & all but the remote could be simplified to be a little more user friendly, Thanks, Steve
It's ok, it's a good value for how cheap it is but the picture quality still sucks. It doesn't have a very good volume either. Goes to 20 and we are still straining to hear. Easy to use, charges fast but doesn't last long. I'm keeping it but honestly wouldn't buy it again knowing what I know now about it. I had bought a different one on Amazon about the same time and that one REALLY sucked! Horrible picture so this one was the better of the two at least.
I am changing my review of this product do to the immediate response from this company and the DVD player we received. The first one we received was defective which I posted about. They responded to my problem the very same day and had it replaced immediately. The one we received works perfect. The picture is so clear and audio is great. Thank you so much
I am using this to exercise with--playing exercise DVD's. It has a great picture quality and is easy to use, and of course portable, so I can use it anywhere. My only concern about it is that the catch to close the lid over the DVD seems a little flimsy. It is working fine so far, but I'm a little worried that the piece might bend or break and I might not be able to use it anymore if the lid won't stay closed.
Enough connection points for almost everyone. Processor and system a little slow, but this is not a high end gadget. Speakers are small, and are good for small speakers, but I recommend using a wireless bluetooth for better sound (I use an Oontz Angle 3). Decent gizmo for a decent price!
When you get your player you also get instructions on how to receive a free gift. It says to write a review and get either a gift card or a headrest mount. I wrote a review and sent them my address. What I got back was a request for more information. In todays world, someone having your information is dangerous, the more information, the more danger you are in. I decided it wasn't worth it. Of course, you can make up your own mind. I'm just saying, beware. As far as the player is concerned, It's OK. Good picture and comes with a remote.
