Consumer review (newegg.com)

Decent

 

Sleek, plenty of features

Buggy, freezes now and then and you need to unplug the unit for a bit to reset it. Not as good as some models reading burned disks but okay. Price was cheap enough

Bad DVD player

 

Looks nice. Low price

Broke two weeks after I got it. Doesn't play DVDs anymore, and I don't have the original packaging to return it (threw it out after I tested it the first time)

Consumer review (newegg.com)

worst elextronic purchase I have made

 

I used to trust Toshiba but the last several items have me severely questioning the bran, and I am checking out other Brans more closely

size

slowly stopped playing movies afyer a very short time...numerous stoppages and skips even after cleaning. when yo push the open/eject button, 9 out of 10 times the door opens one inch and then closes...you actually have to grab the door and hit open...

Excellent DVD Player

 

Ordered the DVD Unit on 11/22/05 and received it on 11/23/05. I've played 6 DVD's so far, and all were flawless. Unit is really compact and buttons/controls all logically and conveniently laid out. The Remote is also logical, of good quality and easy...
