Summary: I bought this as a replacement for the one I borrowed from a relative and broke. It arrived promptly and in good shape but did not have the remote control with it, I would not buy this model (it's old anyway, now) nor the brand as I found the features were so-so for what I needed temporarily. The volume control/sound is not very good if there is any noise in the room. The clarity of the movie was okay but I'm not sure any DVD portable will be very good.
Summary: TO BEGIN WITH, I'VE OWNED THIS PARTICULAR UNIT (I BOUGHT USED BY THE WAY) FOR ABOUT 8 MONTHS NOW. I HATE TO BURST ALL THE CRITICS BUBBLES, BUT IT'S WORKED FLAWLESSLY. I'VE BEEN DEALING IN ELECTRONICS PUBLICLY SINCE 1992(THE STEREO NOOK) AND PRIVATELY IN THE MILITARY AS A ELECTRONICS SPECIALIST.(ELECTRONIC GUIDANCE SYSTEMS). THERE ARE NO MORE SURPRISES WITH THIS UNIT THAN I'VE HAD WITH MORE HIGHLY RATED BRAND NAME ITEMS.
Summary: I bought this a few years ago and it worked fine for 6 months. But then it quit working at all. It had a warranty so I sent it in. The people there were HORRIBLE to deal with, very rude. And they refused to replace it, they 'repaired' it. It's still hit or miss at the very best. I would never recommend this product to anyone.
Summary: Like the other reviews, mine quit working shortly after a year. It was well taken care of and only used on a few road trips. It now reads in valid disc. Doesn't seem to matter what DVD I put in. Very disappointed considering it was $90, used maybe 6 times, and well taken care of. Buy a different brand!
Summary: I would not recommend this product. It stopped working within the year after we purchased it. When it did work, the maximum volume was still very low. We kept trying to find ways to turn up the volume to no avail. Also, it would not recognize disks and would often just turn off in the middle of watching a movie... and that was when it was working at its best.
Summary: This RCA dvd play is a piece of junk. Did not come with cables to hook up to TV and had to order special cables only from RCA. Stopped working in less than 1 year. RCA should be ashamed to make such a piece of blah.
Summary: This was our THIRD portable DVD player and we got ONE week of use out of it before one of the kids pulled on the power cord and the jack pulled right out of the player rendering it useless. Yes, definitely our fault. But not a design that will stand up to use by kids.
