JVC XV-N650B Ultra-Slim DVD Player


I bought this unit to play MP3 folders burned to DVD on my wife's birthday party and play my Divx collection on my TV. The music played OK and then the problems started.

JVC XV-S30BK DVD Player is a Bargain!


The JVC XV-S30BK DVD player is a no frills basic DVD player with remote control. I purchased this unit for $139, and am very satisfied with its performance. It reads dvd video, and audio will need a different model for MP3 discs. The unit has...

Quality DVD player at a low price!

None for a entry level player.
