Two and a half years of daily use without a single problem
17 December 2006
Summary: We bought this for our kids to use on road trips, but shortly after purchasing it, started using it as our main DVD player when our original home cheapo DVD player broke. We have not a single problem in over two years of daily use, and with at least monthly use in the car, where it has been knocked over and abused by two little kids. It plays not only DVDs but VCDs and the DVDs we burn on our home computer without a glitch. Great purchase and we recommend it highly!
Summary: I bought this Audiovox Model D1500A a little over (4) months ago, and it has now taken a giant "dump !" Heck of a note that a DVD player will not even last for the full year of warranty. I have sent Amazon a letter concerning this, and am awaiting a reply from them on coverage. Sorry, but I don't have the patience for the "old run around" from the Audiovox warranty department. I will wait and see how this claim works out before slamming Audiovox as a company.
Summary: I don't think I'll buy any more Audiovox products at all. I've now -- at my error -- purchased 2 Audiovox portable DVD players in the last year alone. This one didn't even last 7 months. Now the one I just purchased only 2 months ago is having problems, too (model #D-1420). I'm beginning to now think that Audiovox products in general are just crap. And the warranty is only 90 days.....guess I should have known. Don't buy!
Summary: This DVD player was the best thing in my life until it broke. I can't read my disks. I have put all of my DVDs in there and it just couln't read them. Before that the battery wouldn't work. So it wasn't even portable any more. Then came the remote the God awful remote. I pushed a button and then smoke started to come out of it. So now what I have is a portable DVD player with not remote , no battery (no longer portable) and finally it can't read disks.
Summary: I've had a terrible experience with Audiovox. We received this as a wedding gift off our Amazon registry. The screen blinked an hour into the DVD. Turns out it was a battery problem. I had to pay to ship it back myself. When it came back, we charged it up again and tried to watch the DVD again. It stopped in the same place. I called Audiovox. Its customer service reps are useless and completely unempowered. The supervisors are never there and don't return messages.
Summary: Okay, seeing that many of the reviews were complaints with little to no useful technical information, I thought I'd try something a bit more 'formal'. So, here goes. Bought the unit on Friday, and so far I haven't had too many problems with it. There are a few complaints, but I'll get to those below. Disc Player: This machine is LOUD. The noise the disc player makes is far more than any computer cd-rom, cd player, or dvd player i've ever encountered before.

Summary: I bought this unit in March 2004. In April 2005 our family went to use it and a message came up wrong region with Region 1 movies(I live in the USA). Audiovox said it would need to be repaired at a cost of at least $94. I told them that they just lost another customer. Not a good product or a good company.
Summary: Audiovox does not stand behind this product at all. I am having the same issue that other consumers have had: picture freezing, scratchy sound, screen goes dead. Unfortunately, I am seeing a trend for this small DVD player. After calling customer service and explaining that I bought this thing 6 months ago they responded with "the policy is 3 months" if you would like to get your product fixed, it will cost $96.00.
