HDMI Port Failed After 2 Weeks

 

It's a slick little DVD player that loads discs pretty quickly and has a lot of features like the USB port (which I haven't tried)

The HDMI port failed 1 week (to the day) after hooking up the HDMI cables and only after 2 weeks of ownership. I was leery of purchasing this player because so many other newegg users had trouble with the port, but decided rather to roll the dice,...

2 thumbs up!

 

None, I'm very satisfied! I love it!

It can play everything ya throw at it in alot of formats, I would say 90% of all formats work. and the remote control is awesome to control your tv, I didn't even have to program it in, just point and click! Slick black design and colors really nice

Won't play formats like for instance MKV files I never tried OSG yet, but I kinda doubt it will. But maybe in time there will be such a player that is cheap that will, but besides that? I can see no flaws at all, I love my player and very,very happy...

Good player for the price

 

I have two of these players in my home. Very easy to use. Upconverts with HDMI cables which is a great alternative to a blu-ray player. Crystal clear pictures on my HDTV's I use one of these players nightly and have had it for over a year with...

Lots of extras, but wiffs on what it is

 

If you do happen to order this make sure to get cables with it. I don't understand for the life of me why they would sell an up-convert DVD player and then give you analog RCA cables. If the purpose is to upscale on an HD set to 1080p wouldn't you at...

Bought this as Christmas present for my mother. Newegg shipping rocks order for 3 day shipping and got it the day after. The product works

I understand this player has a lot of extras. I have always been curious about up-convert's. The picture was nothing close to stellar. I get better picture out of my Xbox 360 then this thing and it doesn't up-convert. Didn't want to just bash it so I...

the best DVD player I've ever had

 

I recently found this player to replace my old dilapidated one that could not play any VCD's or SVCD'd and what a surprise I had when I got this home and hooked up. This not only plays VCD'd and SVCD's but, it has a USB port on the front that you can...
