Summary: For $24.99, you can't go wrong. Other players do have better definition, and the interface is down right ugly, but it does play nearly every disc you load into it, and thanks to some time spent researching Region Codes on the internet, I found a way to make it Region-free!(go to Videohelp.com, and look under Curtis DVD 1041C for the hack) Resume play only works when you leave the player on.
Summary: I purchased mine in July of 2011, by middle of October it was already having trouble. From the beginning you have to basically be about 2 feet away from the unit to use the remote otherwise it's just a crap shoot. Now it's been about a week the it seems to freeze up, and not be able to play much. Buy another brand!!!!
