Still under warranty, I sent it back--- received a REFURBISHED one in return--- after spending the small fortune on this thing!!! It worked for a little while--- then a year later-- after only using it about a dozen times-- it stopped working!!

Warning for DIVX users!

Christoph B. Lemmonds "Kit Lemmonds", Amazon
25 September 2009
  • Summary: Since I specifically require a portable dvd player to watch divX files, this review is catered to that purpose. This unit advertises divX functionality, but then completely undermines the purpose of divX with a horrible limitation. If you're not familiar with DIVX or avi files in general - the purpose is to shrink video into a small file so you can fit more movies onto the media - often at a ratio of 4:1 (even higher for animated video).

Horrible in Vehicle

Concerned, Amazon
7 February 2009
  • Summary: Bought this to put in our SUV for the kids to view. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR VEHICLE USE! It works very poorly in the vehicle. It constantly turns off and resets itself or stops. It will only go about 4 or 5 minutes before a problem develops. On the high end, it works nice in the house and the picture is good, but so are the televisions in our house. I am sorry I purchased this item.

ok

Cheryl, Amazon
5 January 2009
  • Summary: I love this DVD player! The picture and color are great, but I did not enjoy it for long. It worked for about a week. I had a lot of trouble when I first received it with the battery. The battery pack would not hold a charge. I wasn't happy with the customer service at Amazon. The thirty day warranty starts when you place the order. I did not receive it for 2 weeks so when I realized the battery wasn't holding a charge....Amazon would NOT help me.

Battery Issues

H. Lee "TV Shopper", Amazon
29 November 2008
  • Summary: I have had this DVD player for about 13 months and have had no issues until the battery completely stopped charging. The moment I pull out the power cord, the DVD player completely stops. This pretty much ruins the purpose of having a portable DVD player. I called Toshiba and was told tht I would have to pay for an repairs. This battery issue seems to be a common problem with this player. If you get one without this issue, it's a pretty good player.

P2900 DVD Player Sudden Death

Phoenix_PE, Amazon
20 June 2008
  • Summary: I liked the unit fine for the couple of months it worked, then it just stopped "spinning up" DVDs on start-up. Not worth my time. Just more disposable electronics . . . .
