Good Player for the Price

JOHN S., Newegg
20 February 2007
  • Summary: Overall, this is a quality product at a fair price. I would suggest anyone in the market for a portable DVD player to consider this unit when making their purchasing decision.
  • Pros: Low cost good-quality portable DVD player with decent display. The included carrying case is great as well as the option for TV viewing, not many portable DVD players include those features.
  • Cons: The LCD could be a little sharper. As a point of comparison, I am still blown away by the quality of the screen my 3 year old player with a 5" LCD made by a different company, granted that unit cost near three times as much.

Excellent deal

Tina B., Newegg

  • Summary: Very rare player at an incredible price point. Well worth the money. I bought it primarily to be used when I go to gym that has cable tv jacks that weren't hooked to TVs.
  • Pros: *Unbeatable combination of DVD/Divx player with TV tuner. Plays all common formats. *Works with regular cable TV *very decent picture and sound quality *dual headphones & remote
  • Cons: *7" screen *2.5 hr battery life *color saturation a bit low *white streak lines at top of screen. very dull and does not bother regular watching though.

Overrall Good purchase.

Carlos V., Newegg
29 August 2006
  • Summary: It is not the hottest desing, but im aesthetically pleased and the unit. The unit look more gold color than silver..... Overrall good purchase. !Happy customer, NEW EGG ROCKS, despite they put unit 10 dollars less the next day. !... :S
  • Pros: The picture is very good. I would say near excellent. Bright colors, good definition and good point of view. The audio is loud enough no distortion whatsoever, much better than my Dell Dimension sounds. The connector for an additional antenna is cool, you can disconnect it fast without screwing(Y...
  • Cons: I dont know if there is something wrong with my remote control, but is slow, you cannot press fast between buttons, you have to wait like 2 seconds, and its feel weird. The upper part of the "open and close" DVD tray looks very fragile,despite that the whole unit looks well built

Does what I need at a great price

Anonymous, Newegg
22 August 2006
  • Summary: I purchased the PDV-7077 primarily for use as a small TV to be used with cable. I also use this in the field to set up CCTV cameras with the A/V input. This device is about $150 cheaper than comparable "Pro" CCTV monitors for that purpose. Complete accessories and travel bag are really nice touches.
  • Pros: Biggest pro is ability to play all formats. I was able to play all the formats that Astar lists reliably. DVD, SVCD, VCD, CD's, JPEG, MP3, etc. Does automatic slide show with jpegs. TV tuner has nice auto channel find feature. "Auto" finds stations (broadcast or cable) and memorizes them numerica...
  • Cons: Display quality is good. Can see slight scan lines. Display colors are slightly washed out. The display viewing angle is small, and exhibits low contrast ratio (black is not true black, but grey; a common problem with inexpensive LCD panels). TV tuner not very sensitive. TV stations must be nearby.

Just what I needed

Cedrick T., Newegg
7 August 2006
  • Summary: I had my brother order this and he had to ship out of the US to the philippines. But it was worth the wait.
  • Pros: Great item for a great price. Been looking for one of these (portable dvd/tv tuner) and this was the best price I found. Works with all my divx files, mp3's, dvd's and vcd's.
  • Cons: Just wish it had a bigger screen.

May just get another!

  • Summary: My wife figured out how to use this on her own, and she's hates new gadgets. It was that easy. She uses it in the living room while my son and I are watching wrestling. And no, we don't have mullets! We just like to be entertained.
  • Pros: Excellent picture. Great plus was the tuner. Have been looking for one with this feature. All the required adapters/extras you need. Great product and an excellent price whether regular price or on sale.
  • Cons: None so far.

Ordering a second one.

John H., Newegg
22 July 2006
  • Summary: The last few posts make me concerned. I hope the second one works as well as the first. I intended to buy the one without a TV tuner this time, but NewEgg raised the price on that one and put this one on sale!
  • Pros: Plays mixed MP3s, MPGs and JPGs on a DVD+R! Everything works. No bad pixels. Fully equipped. Nice case.
  • Cons: Does not play VOBs, M2Vs, etc. TV tuner is confusing. Manual is not very useful. Limit 1500 files/DVD. (Still - that is better than most).

Did not work out of the box!!!

Danny R., Newegg
17 July 2006
  • Summary: Spend the extra money on a good one cheapskate!!!
  • Pros: The accessories. That is it.
  • Cons: Did not work out of the box. There is a button that tells when the lid is closed, and when the lid is closed the picture goes off. When you put a movie in it played, you could hear the sound but no picture. If you pushed the button the picture showed for a second then went back off. I sent it in ...

  • Pros: Don't return faulty products you buy at newegg to the maker. Go through newegg. I had to return mine too and newegg was great. i used their online support and he had me a RMA number in minutes. I sent the unit back to newegg and my new one is already on the way.
  • Cons: do not buy anything from astar!! mine was broken out of the box.
