Summary: I really only needed a remote, but the remotes I found to match this unit cost as much as the whole shebang, So I just got a second DVD player to use in the other room and share the remote between them. Works perfectly.
Summary: This is my second one - I shipped the original to a friend who doesn't like shopping for electronics. Nice, simple-to-use unit. Good complement of ports: HDMI, component, composite, S-video, and coax cable. The S-video is handy to hook up to older tv sets if so equipped.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this Magnavox DVD player after returning Sony's current model DVD player for a refund at Walmart. The Sony DVD player constantly emitted a loud buzzing noise as soon as we turned it on. The noise got louder when we tried to play movies.
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.
Summary: I'm a teacher who uses this for my class. I've had constant problems in the past with recorded videos, that have not occured with this DVD player. Truly a blessing. Disclaimer: I've only shown a couple of videos.
