Even the tech challenged can hook up this DVD player


A few years ago when DVD players were the hot new thing, I wanted one, but not badly enough to pay the $200 or so they cost. So I waited until I won this RCA RC5215P DVD player in a sweepstakes. But since I had not yet won any DVDs and had a fully ...

Easy to install and use due to clear instructions in manual.

It's not HD - but HD didn't exist when I got it.

Died after 8 months (warranty: 3 months)


As with several others' units, mine died after only 8 months. That is, no LED activity at all. Obviously, the power supply was fried.

Works for several months.

1. Died completely after 8 month.2. Makes an annoying loud humming noise.

Third time's the charm? NOT!!


I purchased my RCA DVD player from a local retailer. I brought it home and was very pleased with it--for the first two months. Then it would not play a movie. Would turn on, but would not read a disc. This happened out of the middle of nowhere. I never...

Good picture and easy to use.

Breaks very easily, as I have had THREE of them.

Spend the extra $50 for a better system!


If you're considering the RCA RC5215P DVD player, you probably recognized (as I did more than a year ago) its inexpensive price relative to the number of features that this DVD player offers. You probably don't need anything with too many bells and...

Lots of features for the price.

Cheap product made with cheap parts.

Shop Around.


I bought this dvd player about a year and a half ago. The one aspect I've always enjoyed is that friends of mine sometimes have trouble playing their dvds in their player because of scratches on the disc, and whatnot. However, even when their players...

Sleek Look, and great price.

Power button doesn't work, and i have to unplug the player to turn it off.

Brand Name Bull!


Well, I bought this dvd player for the "reliable" name and for the price (it was the cheapest at the time). Every thing is fine for about 8 months. Then, the dvd player went completely dead. What I mean by dead is, completely lifeless. There wasn't...

doesn't play home made vcd's

Product Specifications

It will feel like a trip to the theater, only without the long lines and sticky floors. With RCA DVD players, watching movies at home will never be the same. These players bring you the ultimate in picture quality, with over twice the definition of standard VHS, and CD quality sound. With the press of a button, you can view movies in a widescreen format, and in another language (with compatible discs). Plus, you can enjoy distortion-free special effects. And since the RCA DVD player is totally compatible with CDs, you can double your entertainment capabilities. 10-bit Video D/A Converter delivers faster video signal processing than conventional methods, minimizing digital artifacts for enhanced digital video quality. Component Video Outputs provide the highest level of video signal transfer quality available today when connected to televisions equipped with compatible inputs. DTSp Compatibility allows the DVD player to pickup and output DTS (Digital Theater System) 5.1 channel audio signals for decoding by DTS-decoding receivers. 96 kHz/24-bit Audio D/A Converter maximizes DVD and CD audio performance capability provides smoother, less digitized transitions, and richer sonic texture. SRS TruSurround/Virtual Dolby Digital delivers the best in enhanced audio when the DVD player is used in a conventional two-channel audio system. SRS TruSurround, combined with the Virtual Dolby circuit, lets you enjoy the spaciousness of a 5.1 channel encoded disc, while the Virtual Dolby Surround works with Dolby Pro-Logic encoded movies, from just two speakers. Multiple Viewing Angle Capability gives you the ability to select viewing from various camera angles on DVDs encoded with the feature. Currently it is seen mostly on informational productions. Fluorescent Dimmer allows you to lower the display brightness settings in order to preserve the low-light ambience of your home theater environment. On-screen displays make it easy to adjust more picture, sound, and convenience features from either the remote control or the front panel controls. Random Play shuffles and randomly plays every track in complete random order without repeating a single track, until all selections have played.
