Great little DVD player
I bought this DVD player a week ago and I just love it. It's super light and has great audio. The screen size is just fine too. The battery life is wonderful. I was able to watch 4 hours of a 6 hr. movie and I watched the remaining two hours while the DVD player was charging. I would definitely recommend this item.
Pleased overall but a bit quirky
This DVD player has the largest screen we've seen on a dedicated DVD player. Picture quality and volume level through the speakers or earbuds is better than we expected. Fairly simple to operate too. All DVD's start automatically when you first put them in the player however for reasons we can't determine, after some DVD's play their previews of other movies, some DVD's will not recognize the OK button on the player when the "Play Movie" screen prompt appears.
Gets the job done
They work well and keep my kids entertained for hours. Picture is quality is okay. It kept cutting off in the middle of movies which was super annoying. We figured it was something with the power supply and switched from using the car adapted to the regular 120 volt plug since my car is equipped with that type of outlet as well. No problems since. Glad we figured out the power supply thing. If you only have a cigarette outlet in your car I wouldn't risk getting this.
Compact, light, USB works fine
Small and light. The swivel screen is very nice--it can be laid flat (like the old Windows Tablet PC's). I bought it mostly as a cheap way to play digitized movies using a USB drive. Simply re-encode your movies to MP4 ('simple' profile) and slap them on your thumb-drive. Freemake Video Converter can be downloaded freely and will do this (the standard MP4 setting seems to work fine) quite easily. I've tried this with multiple USB drives up to 32GB in size and everything went smoothly.
Small box with lots of features
Bought this after comparing the product with GPX (KMart/Sears) and iLive (Walmart). The plus side, this one has built in ATSC tuner compared to the 2 other brands.
Out of the box, TV function will ask to setup channel scan which is done inside the Menu. Menu can be accessed from button on the unit or from IR remote. The included TV antenna works fine, I just laid it on the table and it found 10 digital channels with clear picture and sound. Closed Caption works too.
Good for Portable, Horrible for Home
This player is next to garbage. All the 5 star reviews are from employees of RCA. I bought mine 2 months ago at my local Target. I only used it about 15 times and now it says '' bad disk '' when I try to play a bluray movie. Ive inserted different discs to make sure but it seems that the player is ruined. From the beginning I noticed an annoying hissing sound coming from the speakers and it made for a terrible movie experience. I recommend you save your money and buy the sony one instead.
I bought this for the size. I wanted a small streaming device that I could fit into a cabinet built into the side of a chimney adjacent to where the tv is mounted that I modified to hold my entertainment equipment, the door opening is only 13" so I thought this would be the answer. When I took it from the box, I marveled at how light and cheaply made it felt. But I wasn't deterred from trying to make it work.
