ya get what you pay for

Pros: Small, sleek, good color combos of silver, brushed aluminum & "chrome". Great picture quality

Cons: Works sporadically. Brand-new DVD's make no difference. Has much trouble finding title/menu or episodes if you get that far. Boot, boot, boot & reboot with a few "tray cycles" as I call them. Will lock up and not take any remote inputs, responding on-screen with "Invalid Key". Only 3 buttons on unit; open/close, play/pause, PWR.
Remote keys must be 4lbs push force... would love to measure.

Other Thoughts: I've seen this name around before, so I fig'd couldn't be that bad. Have 2 other non-brand-name units at work (diff "brands") that work flawlessly for over a year each... go figure.
I would suggest find another. You can get a decent little DVD player for this price, but this ain't one of them.

Would Not buy again

Pros: -small
-progressive scan
-simple

Cons: -remote requires precision aiming. you need a sniper scope for this bad boy.

-at least 1/3 of the times we play a movie the player makes a grinding sound. we re-seat the dvd... still happens. sometimes the grinding stops randomly during the movie. the grinding does not dmg the dvd btw.

-no track,time display

-buttons on remote are rigid.

Other Thoughts: Owned since 6 Nov 05 through current (18 May 06)

Total cost was $xx... not bad. If I was on a budget and there were not other options AND I wanted a progressive scan (which I do), then I would see what other comparables are out there before buying this. If this is the best price, then you might as well go for it. The grinding is annoying, and the rigidity of the buttons on the remote take some time to get accustomed to. However, if you can spend an extra $20 or so, then dont even bother looking at this device.

Fine For Me

Pros: Reads DVDs fine

Cons: Foreign language subtitles seem to come up as default, have to turn them off with the flimsy remote...sometimes the loading tray hangs up

Other Thoughts: It's a cheap DVD player, it works for me, got its problems but I only use it a couple times a month, basically works when I need it to

Poor warranty

Pros: Small, light, inexpensive

Cons: Unit out of the box would not read any DVD. Contacted company and they agreed to replace unit and stated that a whole batch were defective. However, I have to pay shipping to send unit back and enclose a $x money order processing fee. That is not a company which stands behind their product.

Good bang for the buck.

Pros: -Setup in under 5 mins
-Works
-Cheap

Cons: -Remote is flimsy
-Included cables suck, don't attach well to my TV or Video splitter box, but they do attach. Just pickup some new cables they're only a couple bucks.

Other Thoughts: Overall great bang for the buck. If you want a no nonsense dvd player and don't mind the very light cons, get it.
