Solid product that works as advertised


I was hesitant to by a refurbished product but in this case i'm glad I did. It is a great product that works quite well.

Budget DVD Player


First, it does not have different buttons for both 'scan' and 'next chapter' on the remote. This basically means that you are always fast forwarding, because for some reason skipping chapters doesn't really register well with the unit.

Decent buy


It's a DVD player. Reviews online gave it a poor review but I haven't had a problem yet. The remote control is cheaply made, but it seems to work so far. It played my HD DVD test disk perfectly combined with the AOC refurb i bought at the same time.

cheap is good


Doesn't come with HDMI cable. Not really a con at this price.

Cheap and upconverting. Probably the cheapest upconverting DVD player you can find. Very thin

None at this price range

Not impressed


Cheap, good upconversion, simple controls

Very slow to open and close the door. Died after 23 months. There was no reason it should not have lasted longer. It wasn't very heavily used

Great product - Easy to make freezone


Great product for that price As half of my DVD are Zone 2 (Europe), I needed a DVD player with the capability to read DVD Zone 1 (US & Canada) and Zone 2 (Europe). Really easy to make freezone (138931)
