Summary: My IDM-9520 has worked incredible, even given a few melted popcicles...he he he. But seriously now it won't read a disc. Any suggestions? Anyone know where I can send it back to in effort to get it repaired/serviced? thanks kathleen.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I wrote a bad review because the dvd player froze and acted like the other bad reviews. Tried it one more time before sending it back. Now it works great. it plays and plays. I deleted my last review. I love this player. Took it on a trip in the car and not a problem. Picture great,sound through head phones is wonderful. UPDATE: Had player for a month with a lot of use. works awesome. took on another trip and worked perfect.
Summary: I had read a lot of reviews about this player, some were bad, but I decided to get one anyway--I was surprised , it works well, I have not had it a month yet, but I have useing it almost 8 hrs a day for close to thirty days, it get pretty boring doing night audit--the sound is not that good, but you get some speakers or headphones and it is great The bad reviews did make me buy a three years replacement for about 17.00
Summary: I love toys. And I love the idea of bringing a DVD player anywhere I want to. It's so amazing that it's so small - just about as small as a dvd player can get. it's no frills, though. on and off, you could say, but who needs that much more, right? my problems with the model I have is the low battery life, which I'm sure can be fixed with advances in technology. maybe from 3 hours to 5. it has nice visuals and the sound is great.
