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

It never worked. I charged all night and nothing. I had to put one start tobe able to rate it. But it really deserves none.

Battery life is terrible


DVD player works great as long as you're near an outlet or in the car. If you're planning on traveling with it on the plane, go with a model that has a longer battery life. You can't even finish a movie before it dies.

small but good


I wanted this so I could watch DVDs without hauling a big television set and player around. It includes a jack for earphones which means I can use this thing without disturbing others.

A Very Fine DVD Player
