not to bad considering the price


seems to work ok, but keep in mind what you pay is what you get. if you just need something to play dvds this will do just fine.

the first one i got was not good so i had to send it back, lost some money on shipping and stuff but over all got a new one ---

For $33 it does what I need it to do. Play kids movies on a 15in LCD. Don't expect good quality video.

It plays DVDs

Don't use on a big screen and expect it to be DVD quality

Pick a different one


I've had mine almost a year and it works fine except the remote is missing.


If you lose the remote you have send a $6.00 money order to the company to get a new one. Universal remotes will mess it up, it took me 3 weeks to fix it so I could watch movies on it again.

Yes it's cheap, but that's no excuse. Save your money, save your time, save your grief. You stand a better chance grabbing one at your local goodwill.

No, there aren't any.

Burns out after mere months. After that, audio plays only with proper alignment of the stars.

Do not buy...please read


Don't believe "Get what you paid for" should be a class action for this player as it died within 6 months and no support whatsoever.

Cheap, so what!

I had two of these only last 3 months. Manufacturer warranty is a joke, they offer only 3 months. Do the math, it is actually only 2 months left after the "reseller" acceptable return period.

Piece of JUNK


DO NOT BUY. I spent xx$ for two of these, and had I not been a cheapskate I would have bought a xx$ one that would still be working.


Owned two of these and both of them blew craps within 5 months. Started making a loud annoying noise for about 2 weeks before one of them broke. I attempted to repair these after their untimely demise to no avail.

Good value for money


Much better reviews are on other sites.

Nice, small, works. Possible to unlock.

All buttons on remote are same size, not much about ergonomical design.

You get what you pay for (Sometimes Less)


I have been shopping with NewEgg since Jan 2003.

Low price fits the bill for the casual movie viewer.
