Excerpt: I bought this product thinking it would be great. I threw away the box and then how in the world.. lost the reciept. I burned a few movies, thought it was great. Then loaned the movie out and they couldn't play it. Tried it on several players, then found out by someone else that it doesn't close the disk, so you can't play it on any other DVD player. IT STINKS!!! Too much money to spend to get screwed so bad.
Excerpt: My daughter was in need of a new DVD player, so of course that was one of the first Christmas gifts we bought her. We found a Magnavox DVD player that played both dvd's and cd's. It was also Energy star qualified. I knew that this would be a good dvd player for her. Magnavox has been around forever, and she needed nothing fancy, just something that she could watch her movies on, the cd player was a plus. It is very lightweight, and compact.
Excerpt: This DVD/VCR combo was purchased for use at my job. I used it exactly twice and the DVD wouldn't play. When I contacted the company, they suggested that it was inappropriately used and said I could send it back at a cost and pay to have it serviced. I got a flashlight and looked inside the door to find a product part label hanging from the inside. Once I removed it with tweezers, the DVD would play.
Summary: I've already given a review from my purchase of the piece of junk from the"Gaming Spot".If the "Gaming Spot" wants to credit my account first(around $70) ...$69.98 to be exact-for the piece of junk+shipping that I spent,fine.Trust works both ways.I trusted them in the 1st place,but they mislead me about their claims of the product+will probably continue to do the same with other consumers
Summary: This is a decent DVD PLAYER, but a pathetic DVD recorder or VHS player. I have had the unit for one year and it has been a miserable experience. The first few months there was no problem with DVD recording, but viewing tapes was less than satisfactory right out of the box. After about two months the unit would no longer record DVD's.
