You get what you pay for

Jared B., Newegg

  • Summary: I have had very few problems with anything ordered from newegg. As a matter of fact, this is my second issue (the other was a cheap power supply). Horrible product. Spend more and get something better
  • Pros: great price
  • Cons: never played a dvd. i tested it with a cd to verify that it worked... then i waited too long to see if it played a dvd. too late to return it

  • Summary: This thing from out of the box it had issues playing DVDs on startup. You had to open/close/turn on/turn off. The audio would get out of sync with the video on the DVD and to correct that you had to pause it and start. My favorite was at not even 6 months it just stopped working.
  • Pros: Cheap Small Easy to make region free with code
  • Cons: Cheap Audio sync issue Death at around 6 months Had trouble playing DVDs at all. Had trouble turning on.

Spend your money elsewhere

  • Summary: Save your money for a name brand model. From the entry screen on this it seems that Emerson is involved with Coby, so at least upgrade to the actual brand rather than one that takes their firmware for their own use.
  • Pros: It has a volume control for the dvd, handy if you don't want to hunt for another remote. Aside from that...
  • Cons: While it plays MPEG files, it does so with difficulty. Don't let it sit paused, as if the screen saver turns on you have to unplug the unit to get it to respond. Owned for less than 3 months and it already died, the screen lost hold and wouldn't respond on anything other than a flat panel that ha...
