TERRIBLE

Cakes, Amazon
20 December 2003
  • Summary: It is very rare to be able to play a dvd the whole way through. Inevitably, at a peak moment in the movie, it will freeze and skip. Once that starts happening, forget it. It will never recover, so the only option is to shut it down. Even then, good luck in getting it going again. I am not sure why it skips. At first I thought it was due to movement, but seems to be able to take movement for the most part, and will skip even when perfectly still.

Junk

  • Summary: This thing broke beyond repair after minimal usage. It runs hot and is very heavy. The battery life is not acceptable. Buy a cheap laptop instead.

Not for mobile use

Kent Spann, Amazon
8 September 2003
  • Summary: We were looking for a cheap/flexible mobile dvd player. This is not it. The unit works fine untill you move it. It skips, and skips, and skips.....They should note that it is NOT for use in a moving vehicle (and why include a cigerette lighter adapter?) The good news...the vendor issued a return authorization with little hassle.

Hate it

Kent Spann, Amazon
8 September 2003
  • Summary: I bought this DVD player about a month ago and have been cursed with skipping and freezing. Sometimes it even cut back to the beginning of the DVD. The only reason it got 2 stars was because of the features it has. Believe you me Audiovox willbe getting a nasty gram from me. Word to the wise, find another DVD player.

Pretty Decent Machine For The Price

T. Goff, Amazon
5 March 2003
  • Summary: I've been using this item for over a year now and I haven't had a problem with it. It's been a faithful little machine. I like it's portability and have been using it in my home system... has a great picture and super sound quality with surround sound capability. The manual is pretty much useless but luckily it didn't take me long to figure it out. The battery life is usually less than the movie length luckily included are a power adapter and a car adapter...

Problems galore

T. Goff, Amazon
25 January 2003
  • Summary: The idea behind a piece of portable equipment is ... Are you listening Audivox?... PORTABILITY! The mechanism in this thing is so sensitive?/delicate?/fragile! that it mistracks at the slightest jarring. I have actually had to send the thing back to the USA to have it repaired. You would think that a product designed to be portable would be a bit more rugged. Even after having it repaired, it continues to flatly refuse to play some DVDs while others seem to work fine.

Much better than I expected, but everything soon changed

Scott Kennedy, Amazon
15 January 2003
  • Summary: I received the Audiovox DVD1500 for Christmas, after having asked for a Panasonic or a Toshiba portable DVD player. My mother-in-law saved over $... by getting me this one, so I don't fault her. However, had I been shelling out the money I would have done without until I could have afforded more.

Clunky and poor resolution

cnsf "cnsf", Amazon
10 January 2003
  • Summary: Got this item excitedly (price and specs) and opened it to find it had a defective pixel in the screen. I also noticed the resolution was poor (lots of pixelation-like artifacts) and the thing was just big and clunky. Not recommended for those that were looking for a bargain, but could afford a little more.
