Get What You Pay For

 

I guess that saying is true. I purchased this dvd player at Wal-mart, because I was replacing a dvd player that was made by RCA but earlier model which lasted less than a year. The Reason I got a Rca again because I had bought a surround sound system...

Your moneys worth

 

This RCA DVD Player will play DVDs but is also compatible with Audio CDs, CD-R/CD-RW, VCDs 1.0, 2.0 and MP3s. While watching your favorite movie, enjoy 720 pixels per horizontal line for crystal-clear detail and picture clarity. That is more than twice...

Great sound and image for the price

A gamble at best.

 

It's good to hear other users had a better time than me. I had two models do the same thing on me. The audio track was behind the video. RCA said they've had many complaints about this model with this exact problem. Both of my models did this as...

Cheap. Goes great with RCA system link if you have other RCA products. Okay picture.

Audio is off track with video. VCD playback is sporadic.

All around poor performer

 

I bought this at Target for $150 because I was in a rush. The main reason I bought the RCA was the component video output feature. Component video produces the best picture on your TV.

Component video output failure, skipping, sound output
