"Locks up. Needs power pulled. Stops reading remote."
3 January 2011
Pros: Worked most of the time for a few years. Has USB & SD card slots on front. Plays some movie formats and JPEGs from front. Was cheap on black Friday.
Cons: Must turn off subtitles every time (and it usually chooses Spanish or French). Locks up and sometimes just does not respond to remote. Not enough buttons on unit itself to use wo/remote. Forgets position in movie when off. Won't open until ready.
"Poor reliability - failed in 6 months - freezes up"
14 June 2009
Pros: Low profile, easy to set up, black color, HDMI output, cheap price around black Friday 2008. Unit purchased at Radio Shack. Radio Shack may or may not take it back for 90 days after purchase. Ask before finalizing purchase.
Cons: Small cheap remote control. Buttons on the small side. Cheap price around black Friday. Unit now hangs during playback & then freezes. I had to cycle power by unplugging to get it to give my DVD back.
Pros: If everything worked it would be a good buy. I bought it because it had TV Guardian and I needed 1080i capability to sync with my TV.
Cons: I could not receive Audio through the HDMI output. I Googled the problem and found others with the same problem. The remote control is real small. I had to push the buttons more than once to get it to work. Tech support was no help.
