Excerpt: This player is junk! For a portable player it doesn't have the stabilization necessary to work well in a traveling vehicle. Used it in the home and only worked for a couple of weeks. Received it as an incentive gift, could see why they gave it away, it had no value.

Excerpt: I got this item new and it worked as advertised,but I must say that the item has a pretty frail construction.One has to be careful to center the DVD ,for proper rotation,to make it work properly.The remote control is also frail,but has worked for more than a year.I have played the dvd on a portable video player(psp type0,on a virtual reality headset,on a Tv ect.It works in a consistent manner,but the quality of material and overall frailty is an issue on such a portable...
