So Far OK


I've only used it a little so far, but appears to be working fine... even the 5.1. You'll want to make sure it's set to 5.1 in setup if you want surround. Comes with remote and batteries! Just one cable (yellow and L/R audio). But a heck of a deal for...

A lot is included, such as remote with batteries, cables, and manual. Played one short DVD and one CD without a problem.

Tried to play another DVD and got rubbing, or scraping sound. Applying a *tiny* pressure on the top caused the spindle to stop spinning. Nothing I could do would fix it. RMA'd it and asked for a replacement.

This was a replacent for a Sony 5.1 that has been heaps of trouble. This unit is smaller, less expensive and was easier to install. So far I am pleased.

Accurate description - so far works as intended!


I used a Hair dryer on low and slightly warmed the sticker then slowly removed it and the glue beneath without an issue.

Very Inexpensive, It works as advertised so far. I was looking for a very inexpensive DVD player that still had great picture quality. This one has just that

The wires that come with it are the red, white, and yellow combo cable. It is very cheap and upon arrival my cable did not work, I replaced it with a much better quality cable and have had no problems. Additionally mine arrived silver as in the...

dvd 5.0 player was worth the money


We are using it to hook up our 5.1 surround sound and we love it cuz we already had killer speakers and all we needed was the dvd player to go along and at a cheap price. because if we wanted to pay expensive price we would buy one with speakers that...
