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: This player worked fine for the first hour of play, then the sound became garbled like a bad phone connection. By ejecting the disk and inserting again and going back to the scene (a real pain) the sound worked fine. This happened on 3 DVDs that play fine in another player i have.
Summary: this thing is a total piece of junk. i got it because i wanted a small dvd player with hdmi output. it was way cheaper than the competition. a sign i chose to ignore. anyway, long story short. it didn't sync well with my lg tv and i kept having to turn it off and turn it back on for my tv to recognize it. then it started shorting out and turning itself off. then it just stopped turning on all together. of course, it had a dvd still inside of it.
