Consumer review by: PsychoBunny (newegg.com)

Really, Really, REALLY Annoying

 

The older Phillips DVD players didn't do this. It's just stunning that these newer models would go so far backwards in basic functionality. It might seem that this problem isn't worth giving the player a "1 Egg" rating but trust me, this flaw gets...

Plays all the media advertised and then some. A little slow loading but responsive once running

As mentioned, the remote field is very narrow. But, the real reason this DVD player is all but worthless is because if you pause a DVD to go do something, the screen saver comes on: ok, fine -- but around 10 minutes later, the unit goes into standby,...

Performance & Price NICE

 

Unit has basic features + a few more like preset picture and sound settings.

So far it's played everything that I've thrown at it, including AVI & FLV (youtube) formats.

As indicated by other users, the remote has very little range. However, this can be amended with a universal remote
