Summary: Update to the review January 12, 2014. I have recorded (in HD and analog format) over 250 programs and full length movies. This hard drive probable will hold about 500 hours of recorded programing. The unit makes TV viewing a lot more enjoyable because I can watch and re-watch when it is the most convenient time. All the commercials can be bypassed or edited out of the program. I have also transferred programs to DVD discs.
Summary: The player quit working within 30 days and I returned it. The company was very helpful when I inquired about how to return. I would give them another chance because of the friendly customer service.
Summary: Ordered this item on 1 Jan, 2013. Received item on 3 Jan, 2013. Hooked up item on 13 Jan, 2013. Item was pronounced DEAD on 18 Feb, 2013, only 15 days after the 30 day return for a full refund period. Amazon offered a partial refund, but we would have to pay the shipping and this thing is heavy. Must be full of concrete. Needless to say, we have declined the return offer.
Summary: The Price was right here. More importantly, the picture is beautiful and it takes up very little space. It worked very well with my Sony Bravia HDTV. The chord that plugs into the outlet could be a bit longer, but I was able to manage that. There were no AA batteries included for the remote and the warranty is only for 90 days; but for this price, who could complain? I just hope this DVD Player lasts a good few years. Set up took up less than a minute.
