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

Paul Calderaro, Amazon
25 October 2003
  • 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.

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.

Further News

M. La Vean "LaVean", Amazon
6 January 2003
  • Summary: After much effort Audiovox finally agree to replace the DVD player...however it arrived not in the original container (Is it a rebuilt one being passed off as new?) and missing the cord that connects the power converter to the wall as well as the RCA plug cables that connect it to the TV...I have no way of knowing if it works and have asked if they would be so kind as to send cables..

Further News....(see...Was it made in Russia?)

M. La Vean "LaVean", Amazon
18 November 2002
  • Summary: I sent my player into Audiovox as instructed along with my receipt from Amazon.com...as far as I know it has been sent into space...I know it arrived (I sent it UPS and can track it) But once it went in it became a mystery... Let's review... Did not work during the warranty period... Needed authorization from Amazon to send it back (the warranty period on Amazon's site is 1 year...on the Audiovox site it is only 3 months) Sent into the ether..

Was it made in Russia?

M. La Vean "LaVean", Amazon
20 August 2002
  • Summary: I have owned this product now for about 8 months (it was a Christmas Present for my daughter). It's intended use was for traveling hence it has only been used occasionally. However, I am sorry to report that it is falling apart and further it no longer plays a DVD...When you put one in it just says "reading" on the screen and the disc spins faster and faster until it is making a whirring noise so loud you turn it off before something weird happens.

Not a Reliable Product

John J, Amazon
17 April 2002
  • Summary: My son bought the Audiovox DVD1500 portable DVD player in early November 2001. He doesn't use it very much and takes good care of it. He even has a padded bag where he stores it when not in use. We have had to send this product back to Audiovox in New York twice; Nov 26, 2001 and Mar 18, 2002 at our expense..

You get what you pay for

Jim Perkins, Amazon
16 December 2001
  • Summary: When portable CD players came out, we had problems with pausing. The slightest twinge caused mine to pause. I kept mine in the family room when I first tested it and it still paused. I am returning mine because of this and the monitor did not work. If I buy another one I am going to go higher quality and look for one that can take a few bumps.
