Great buy for the price


I needed a light weight dvd player, small in size, to stack on my vhs/dvd player, as the dvd side stopped working, i still have many vhs tapes, and now i have both again. The product was just what i needed.

My husband and I got this for free with taking a tour. The other day I finally tossed it in the trash.

It's small; I used it on my night stand

Does not play, scratched countless DVD's and just would freeze up in mid movie

Cheap, but not very sturdy


I bought this to use for the kids videos, sometimes it will play the movie and sometimes it shows error. The door on top started not closing all the way the second week we had it. We have to set something on top of the player to hold the top closed all...
