A bit big but pretty good before it stopped working

Summary: We bought this since an earlier Toshiba DVD players had worked great and with more kids we decided to get a second. Well the original older model is still goign strong - this stopped working after about 2 years of relativley light use. Should have gone with Consumer reports recco.
Summary: Just so you know, this thing only lasted 12 months before the rechargable battery stopped recharging. The unit still works if plugged into an electric outlet or car adapter, but the battery won't hold a charge.
Summary: First, the good points; when I bought this player, I was very happy with it (although the buttons which looked like they were back lit when on, turned out not to be, so at night I frequently press the wrong button).
Summary: This player comes with a remote, which is nice, but the remote doesn't do 2 very important tasks. You can't turn the machine on or off from the remote, nor can you adjust the volume from the remote. Why, Toshiba, why? Also, this player performs very poorly after extended play times. i.e.
Summary: The picture is clear but the sound is terrible. I had to buy a small external speaker to go with the product. The remote control leaves a lot to be desired too. It has to be pointed directly at the right hand corner of the DVD player. The play button seems to be located in an unhandy position too.
Summary: I waited and waited for this player to become available on Amazon, but then on a trip to see competing models at a local Best Buy, there it was. I bought it--and returned it two days later. The image quality wasn't bad, but it didn't seem great, and the thing is *incredibly* heavy and thick.
