Summary: Bought this unit last year and so far it hasn't given me any problems. The DVD side has played everything I've thrown at it (DVD, DVD-R, CDs, Jpeg files), with the exception of a couple of DVD-Rs that wouldn't play on any of my players.
Summary: My wife bought this two years ago to replace using my ps2 as a dvd player. We use it at least once a week and we have been very pleased. We haven't had any problems with the VCR and the DVD player stopped working for about a week, but came back and we haven't had any problems since.
Summary: We have owned this dvd/vcr combo player for about 9 months now. It is awful! The DVD player in particular is very poor. Often, the video will freeze, but the audio will continue and it will "skip". Also, many DVD's do not played properly.
Summary: I bought this item in March of 2005 and never had any problems. Until about November of 2005. Now when I put in a dvd it just keeps skipping around like the discs are scratched and they are perfectly brand new DVD's.
Summary: We've had 3 of these combos and none of them have worked properly. The first one ate a video tape after a couple months and because it was still under warranty I sent it back. They sent us a new one and the vcr in that one quit working after 2 or 3 movies.
Summary: You can play VCDs on this player but you need to reprogram the DVD player first. Just follow these instructions: 1. Power on the DVD player with no disk in the drive 2. Press "PAUSE" on the remote 3. Enter "1472" on the remote This should bring up a screen with rows of numbers.
Summary: I am very glad to recieve my player from Amazon today. This unit is good working on VCR player, but, unfortunately, it is not able to read VCD. Although VCD is not as good graphic quality as DVD, I do have a lot of drama VCDs and I like these drama VCDs very much. Prabably I have to return it.
