Great little player


for the price its a great buy and comes a long way for entertaining my kids.. never had a problem once and owned it for a year now! Everyone in my house uses it when they want to escape away to watch a movie alone and relax.

Vivid sharp colors, was impressed with the sound and quality of the dvds played. Played all my dvd-r with no problem at all. comes with a car charger to use while traveling :)

only thing i do not like was that the battery lasts only 2 hours, but for the most part my kids like to use it plugged in while they are in bed

I like the size of the unit and the weight and the picture quality. I have to adjust the picture screen by moving it up and down to get rid of the green hue. The battery life is too short for the length of some movies today..
