Summary: The unit started not wanting to read discs after about a year, I had to keep fiddling with it to keep it usable. One day, it started having an internal glitch and started shutting off intermittently after showing battery low for 2-3 seconds. Finally, the unit would not stay on long enough to enjoy a movie. Oh well, I got off lucky, as I got it at some store where it was on sale.
Summary: The DVD player is OK, but the accessory cables were not included, so it cannot be used to drive projectors or other audio or video devices. I purchased this used DVD player thinking it would have new video and audio cables, which are standard parts of this system. They were not included, so I am returning the unit.
Summary: my husband and i bought this item for a christmas present for our son and his family. they were very happy to get this for christmas. we couldn't have picked a better present than this one. thank you amazon for another fantastic purchase from you!!! we love you!!
Used Every Day For Many Hours At A Time - RIP 3 years later
29 March 2010
Summary: Best Screen/Picture! Best sound! Convient remote! I can't tell if it died on it's own or if it was my fault. It ran great forever, never had a problem until today when I went to clean the screen... It finished it's last dvd while I was cleaning it just fine! But then I went to change out the disk and the new dvd (tried more then one) would not load! It just kept telling me "No Disk" I tried taking the disks out, blowing any dust out & unplugging and blowing dust out.
Summary: This was an expensive unit and used almost daily. It ran perfectly for 2 full years. Sound is excellent. Good remote features. Battery held charge for 2 hours for a movie feature. Recently a message of "battery low" came onto the screen and shut the unit down -while the adapter was plugged into the wall - no battery was attached! When the battery was charged and installed in the unit for the movie - the "battery low" message once again came on.
Summary: For years I had a 7" player that finally bit the dust and the screen on this Memorex model seems mammoth in comparison! The on-unit controls could be a bit more intuitive, but the remote is a standard layout. The sound is like any other small player that I've viewed, adequate, but not it's best feature. Overall an ideal unit for viewing DVDs within 18-24 inches. I haven't yet run it off of the battery, so I can't rate that feature.
