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.
Works flawlessly. Minus half a star because the sound is not quite loud enough. And minus a half star because the seller refuses to honour the 'Free Headphones' coupon in the package.
We use ours in the kitchen. Pictured is the player on a custom wood counter stand with mounted Logitech speaker plugged into the player's 3.5mm headphone jack. That external speaker is plenty loud enough for the intended use.
We don't use it on battery power so can't comment on that. It would be nice if the infrared remote receiver was on both the front and back of the unit because as seen in the photo we use ours with the screen turned 180 degrees to the back. For us its awkward to reach around and use the buttons and the remote won't work at all with the way we've oriented the unit.
I guess I have lots of quibbles but this is the third brand we've tried and the first that actually plays all DVDs consistently.
The On board sound quality was clear and loud for this player. I like that the power cable is long enough to reach the plug in the car and that it folds back to become flats and compact. Will definitely get another one for my other kid when hes older. The only minor issue I have with this is that the remote control doesnt work well - I’m not sure where to point it and i keep pushing it alot until it catches the car harness.
It's small and light-weight--easy to carry along. It would have gotten 5 stars except that the lettering is difficult to read inside and out without bright light (the ambient light in my home and auto are not sufficient). After using it a few times one would know which buttons are "menu", "volume", etc., but not at the outset. The only electrical portal is labeled "dc". I had to turn the user's manual inside-out to find out if it was OK to charge it on ac. It is, by-the-way. I like that it can be plugged into a TV so that the DVD's can be viewed on a large screen, but I haven't done that, yet.
It's easy to use and very intuitive. Volume from my headphones is very good considering I wear hearing aids. Video is quite acceptable and battery life is also acceptable at around 5 hours fully charged. This is very light weight and nice for taking to the pool but its plastic housing probably won't stand up to the abuse of being dropped on a hard surface. For the price, this is an outstanding piece of machinery. Now The BAD: I loaded some photos onto a USB and hoped for the best. I am a professional photographer and the images produced by this machine are AWFUL. BAD#2: Since I do not have a PhD in engineering I gave up on trying to figure out the remote control.
Well, the disappointing news first. My son was super excited to pick the color for the dvd player. He went with purple, his favorite color. So the day before our trip when a black DVD player was delivered, he was horribly distraught. What a let down but seeing how we needed to use the following morning we are now stuck with boring old black.
That being said, it's a fine DVD player and excellent deal for the price. The screen is bright and sound seemed to be plenty loud. The only real negative is the dvd spinning makes a bit of an annoying sound when it's strapped to the back of your headrest by your ears. Nothing overwhelming but definitely noticeable.
So all in all. Good product but don't try to have fun and let your toddler pick the color. You might have to deal with the letdown come delivery day. Ha.
We bought this for a long car ride to and from vacation. With the price point we weren’t expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. It worked great for the entire drive, never once skipped, has the ability for multiple head phones to attach and the headset case worked perfectly. The only small issues was once the headrest cover is on the remote doesn’t work very well (I think it blocks the censor). Also might be helpful....if you plug in only one set of headphones make sure they are in the main jack otherwise you will hear it through the headset and out loud. Awesome buy, awesome customer service, awesome product!
This is the only thing that makes car rides peaceful when it comes to my 2 yr old. It has a great picture and very convenient. There is a short in the car charger. That’s the reason for 4 stars rather than 5. It is still usable, just takes a little wiggling. When I thought it was the player and contacted customer service about the warranty, they were very attentive and quickly offered to send me a replacement.
Perfect for my toddler for long car rides. Works fine, love that it came with car & home charger, remote, & headrest mount. Picture & volume are fine Dislikes- The remote doesn’t work unless pointed right at the sensor. The headrest mount doesn’t really fit well around my headrest well (16 Ford Explorer) And the headrest mount covers the part of the side of the DVD player marking it hard to plug in charger/headphones. The first time you turn it on it take forever to load. Iv had to turn it off and back on to get dvds to load. Overall it’s big, durable, and serves it purpose. Great price ($40) will buy more if they go on sale again! (Daily deal)
**update- I have been in touch with Sunpins customer service and they are exceptional. They are sending a new product to us and I will update with its review.
We bought this for our son on Christmas. It worked fine for two months then started saying all disc are incompatible besides one disc. The remote is horrible, it is very hard to use. The battery is the best thing about this, it last for about 72 hours.
Great! Except we still can’t open the battery compartment for the remote!! Jeesh. But it works great & cute purple color
Update- the pin popped out & all parts coming loose- 1 month out of 12 month warranty I emailed the company & Shane & manager approved a replacement- I’m not sure why the pin became so loose but the fantastic customer service made it all worth it! I will buy from this company again! Thank you!
