Good Sturdy Player


We got this last year (2008) at the day after thanksgiving sales. We've been using it regularily ever since with no problems at all. It has lasted even though my children use it - and they barely know how. (3, 5) It shows every movie we have tried,...

Great value for the money


This DVD player is a workhorse. While probably not the best standard DVD player out there, it's well worth the money and has been very reliable for me since I bought it a year ago. In my opinion, it's the best "inexpensive" DVD player widely available,...

Great DVD Player


I bought this dvd player Black Friday of 2007, and it JUST died on me yesterday, October 1, 2009! 2 years might not seem like a long time, but it has been with me through my move to college and the box it was in was dropped and STILL worked.

Works great for me! Don't understand all the bad reviews!


I've had this player for about 6 months, and it is used by my five year-old stepdaughter on a regular basis. Yes, a five year-old, sticky fingers and all, has been using it and it still works. In fact, I found the code to convert it to a multi-region...

A DVD Player Made For Anyone


This is a simple to use Dvd player. It feture a component out, a digtal audio out, and a simple to use remote without all the buttons that no one knows what they do. If you are going to purchase a new DVD player, this is the one for you.
