Summary: I couldn't get the Mintek player I wanted--it was on backorder. I was going out-of-town and I watch dvds notstop when I am away from home, and Audiovox is supposed to be good. I had had two Mintek dvd players in the past and they were great; the last one died from old age, and over-work. I received the Audiovox three days after Christmas. I watched TWO dvds and 1/2 way thru the second dvd, it died. Nothing-no audio, no video, nothing.

Summary: We bought this in Sep and I have waited to se how this was going to perform before writing a review. I am happy to say that after several family trips this player is still playing. I had read some reviews on this and was a little worried but we have had no problems so far out of it. I did give it one less star (4 out of 5) because, as many have said, the sound quality is poor, we fixed this by hooking up a MP3 FM adapter (if you have a cassette player you could use an...
Summary: I originally was going to purchase another brand, but the "epinions" were bad. I really wanted the 10" screen. What I like best about the machine is its simplicity. You just put in a disk and it determines whether it's jpeg, dvd or cd. Movies look good on the screen, too. However, be prepared for a tinny sound. The dvd's are o.k., but the cd's won't break any records for sound quality!
Summary: All-in-all, this product is exactly what I was looking for in a portable DVD player. The screen is large enough and bright enough to use in day light, but not direct sunlight which seems to be a problem with all units of this type, not this specific unit.
Summary: Got a D2011 at BJs. It was packaged in the durned tuff blisterpack like plastic. Had to be real careful to avoid damaging the product getting the packaging open. Takes a relatively long time to "load" a disc. Picture looked great but the sound at full was barely above a whisper. Plugged it into TV input jacks to check sound; and there too was very low even with both the D2011 volume control at full and the TV volume at full.
Summary: Watching DVD's come in nice and so is the sound but I have some professionaly done photo's on CD's and they come up distorted. I'm not pleased about that as I wanted to use them for my business.
Summary: I would not even give this one star - this machine is utter rubbish - a total ripoff - overpriced crap. Horrible sound - picture quality OK WHEN IT WORKS which is rarely - it JAMS CONSTANTLY. I've only had it one year & it's never left the house. I did not buy this from Amazon - but DON'T BUY IT FROM ANYONE. I called the company but they were no help at all. Next time I'll buy Japanese.
Summary: I bought this DVD player because Audiovox has a reputable name (compared to brands such as Mustek, Coby, etc.), however, my experience with this unit has brought the Audiovox name down a few notches. Besides having very poor sound quality, I had to return the player because it would pause in the middle of the CD. Then, after a few seconds, it would restart. It did this about 15 times per DVD.
