Summary: We have had this unit for a few years, never had any issues. We use it for watching DVD's as well as listening to CD's on it. We generally take it with us when we go on Trailer Trips, it comes in handy away from home.
Summary: Today is January 24, 2013. I bought the DVD player in 2006 complete with the mounting bag and all the other stuff that came with it. It even has a controller with games built right into it that you can play on the screen in the car. Just got it out again for next weekends trip and it plays great!
Summary: I'm surprised that so many people have had trouble with theirs; ours lasted five years before having its first problem and considering its been used by kids hands (i.e. mildly sticky hands) for the past three of those years, I'm surprised it has held up so well.
Summary: I got a used(secondhand) Audiovox D1812 a year ago. It works perfectly everytime, never a problem. And I've used it alot! It even plays homemade DVD's that my Panasonic(NOT portable) DVD player (hooked up to my TV) refuses to play. I would recommend this item to anyone.
Summary: This player worked for about 6 hours of play. now it either refuses to load or when it does it starts an endless skip/freeze routine. biggest waste of money, don't buy it. run from audiovox, buy a real name brand like sony or toshiba. makes a nice paper weight however.
Summary: I received this DVD player, with carrying case, cables, headphones, and remote at the end of 2005. It has served me well on trips, and at home for almost three years. The only things I dislike about it are that the DVD lid sometimes reads 'open' when I know it's latched closed.
