Summary: Arrived promptly and as it was a replacement for one that died on me, I am familiar with it....performs as it was designed to perform....I am pleased wit the purchase as the vendor...Thank You!
Summary: Most important is to take time to look at how to use media player (video already on player) because it makes everything easy. I bought this because it could lock while playing and this is so important for my autistic daughter.
Summary: I was looking for a device that will record tv and other video sources. I found this one pretty fast! It does what it says. It records tv, and it looks pretty good! I do have some issues with other stuff, like artifacts in the videos i've created with my pc and subsequently transferred to the unit. There is one major drawback that i found this morning when recording a VHS video concert with the unit.
Pros: at first for like 6 mo. it was fine and then it stopped.....
Cons: Working, so i returned for a replacement which was a used one with scrathes and a broken kickstand, so I I was givin a new replacement which only lasted another 2 or 3 mo. then the screen said to return for repair, and when I called back they told me
Summary: I purchased two of these units as Christmas gifts for my kids. They have been very happy with the units. The units were refurbished. There were very minor scratches on the back, but in otherwise excellent condition. I wanted to get them something with decent screen size that plays movies and has good sound quality (a 2" screen just didnt seem big enough), so I tried my luck with the Phillips Media Center. Sound quality is great, even with the stock headphones.
Summary: I bought one of these for both of my kids. They loved them. My daughter's although had to be sent back to the manufacturer twice for internal problems and it is now 8mths past the warranty and just died suddenly. My sons had to sent back three times to the manufacturer for internal problems, battery problems and the last time I got sent back a refurbished player. Now it is 2 mths past the warranty and it died 2 days after my daughters.
Summary: I have really enjoyed this device. For whatever reason it did not come with the software for it. After reading reviews and using it, I guess that was a good thing. I have Vista and did not have a bunch of problems downloading video. The only thing I do not care for is that when I use Vista it put everything I had in the media center on my PMC. I did go in and remove what I did not want.
