So far so good

  • Summary: I was lucky enought to find this little dvd player on a garage sale. So no warranty. I hope I'm not jinxing myself by leaving this review. :) I didn't know anything about them, but saw it on a garage sale and figured what the heck. It was $22. The lady told me her husband had taken it to Iraq when he was deployed and she had bought a new one and they didn't need two. That's why she was selling it.

Going strong after 8.5 months

Mungo Jerrie, Amazon
19 March 2005
  • Summary: Bought this item last July at a very low price ($100). We use it almost exclusively in the car for our 4-year old to watch during in-state road trips. It gets used about once every other week. We attach the unit with velcro to a home-make wooden platform that fits the back of the front seat head rest. The unit takes a fair amount of bouncing, and has always performed well.

definately not worth it

A. Davis, Amazon

  • Summary: I live in Germany and my family in the USA, so Amazon is a great place to go for presents for everyone. Less than one year ago, I bought this DVD Player for my sister for her birthday. She has had minor problems with it since the beginning and now the player will not turn on. When she contacted the customer service department, the representative informed her that her problem is quite common and it is typical to just replace the unit.

For a Off Brand Not Bad

M. Davies "The Mattman", Amazon
7 October 2004
  • Summary: I just received this player yesterday and I played around with it last night. Picture for such a small screen is not bad. All the buttons and the remote work. Played through Return of the Jedi and everything was great. If you are looking for a cheap protable then this would be it. Now as for its bad points. It is a bit loud on startup and you can hear when it skips tracks and such but not overbearing. The AC adapter gets really warm.

Very "moody" player

S. Ruiz, Amazon
2 October 2004
  • Summary: I bought this for my son when we go on long car/plane trips. We have had it for about 7 months and it has been "moody" since day 1. It works when it wants to work and it skips when it wants to skip. Some movies play fine and have minimal skipping, but other movies skip every few minutes. I have tried cleaning the discs and as well as the player and it still skips. It is almost impossible to watch a complete movie on this device.

Great Item - Give it a try

  • Summary: I am thrilled with this little player! It is my favorite toy. I was a little concerned about some of the negative aspects that other reviewers pointed out, but I decided that the positive outweighted the negative and gave it try. Am I glad I did! I take it to work to watch on breaks and at lunch and fits in my handbag.

BEATS THE BIG BOYS

Film Editor, Amazon
11 July 2004
  • Summary: Bought the Sony 7" TFT DVP-FX701, exchanged it because it was NOISY. Opened the second one, the drive spinning was less noisy - however, the top metal plate (lid/screen)had a flaw-it was chipped. Needless to say turned the unit over and it says: "Made In Korea." I felt like a surprise was in every DVP-FX701 box. And the price is no box of Cracker Jacks either. I really didn't have a preference in monitor size because at that size 7" is no different than 4" to me.
