Good Player in the right situation

Allan J. Schrage "iceprince", Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I got this portable DVD player for my late wife when she was hospitalized long term with leukemia so she could have at least some form of entertainment & watch some movies. For us, it worked just fine. We had no issues with it at all. Is it the best, most high tech player? No, of course not. But for the price & in a situation like ours, it was the perfect DVD player. We had no complaints at all with this unit.

TERRIBLE ITEM--BAD SERVICE

H. Cole, Amazon
12 August 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this item and the audio cord to output to TV did not work. Tried it in two TVs. Sent it back at my cost; was returned "fixed" and connector cord still did not work. Company never responded to emails from distributor to fix problem again. Then unit started mysteriously returning to "read" mode during play process. Started off being anytime you moved the unit; then just starting doing it spontaneously.

Quality issues RCA should look into-

New dad, Amazon
30 May 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this same product and as the first reviewer commented it did not work. The DVD would just start doing a whizzing sound but nothing would show up on the screen I took it back and had them exchange and try out the DVD player in the store before I left. The second had a DVD compartment door that did pop up (first one didn't as a revoewr commented here). I'm going on a trip with it this weekend with a [...] so I will see how it holds up.

The worst

George Hurd, Amazon
6 March 2007
  • Summary: I would give it ZERO Stars if possible. I really wanted this DVD player for my kids. I mean I really wanted it. It sounds great. You can use it in the car. It has built in games. It has a battery. It comes with AC/DC plug in. It plays CD's. It claims to be made to withstand use by kids. My problem...AFTER TRYING FOUR UNITS...(NONE)OF THEM WORKED. NOT ONE EVEN STARTED TO PLAY A DVD. I TRIED MULTIPLE DVDs. THEY ALL WORKED IN MY HOME DVD PLAYER.

Not bad

z0ot, Amazon
10 November 2006
  • Summary: We purchased this product for our toddler for long car trips. The unit works well and is quite durable, and for the price the screen is pretty good. It is bright enough for daytime use and refresh is acceptable, though the quality of the picture degrades quite a bit when viewing anywhere other than head-on, so it isn't a great choice if multiple children will be sharing a single unit. The images of this product I've seen online are misleading.

Virtually unusable

Greg, Amazon
12 August 2006
  • Summary: There is only 1 noticable problem with this device. It is just about impossible to open the door to put in a new DVD. I really have no idea how any engineer could have designed something so incredibly bad. Maybe mine was broken, but it sure doesn't look like it, and it was new. I literally have to return it, it is that bad. Everything else about the device seems fine. The display is good, etc. But not being able to easily open the drive-door makes it a waste of money.
