No good : (

By tacoulter from tennessee on 05/05/2008


Bad Design, Poor Picture, No Good, Flimsy, Short Battery Life, Skips Easily, Quit Working

Describe Yourself:


Best Uses:

In The Garbage

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So I bought this player hoping for a compact, easy to use durable little "tv" that my 2 year old could watch in the car, and be content. Ya know, just him and Dora the Explorer. Sadly all he gets to do stress over having to wait for the stupid thing to work..."mommy...tv...not work!" It worked great the first five to ten times watching a dvd and then it went to poo. It started doing weird things, player wouldn't power on, brand new dvd's were skipping, there was a big fuzzy bar covering half of the screen when it wasn't froze up altogether and it took a long time to for a disc to load. The idea of a swivel made me think that with it folded, screen out, would be great on the back of a head rest. Unlike the other players that make it hard for youngsters to dodge getting in and out of the car. WRONG! It swiveled fine, but the case only held up a week or so before the strap broke and then maybe another week before the paper like material, in which the case was made of, wouldn't even hold the darn thing! So having to spend 5-10 minutes sitting in the back seat making sure that it was going to play so that I wouldn't have to pull over a mile down the road to fix it, SUCKS! Having to take it in and out of the case all the time to change the dvd, SUCKS! Balancing it just right, in the not so durable case (Kind of like the material used on the underside of a box spirng that always rips!)that barely holds it, so that my son doesn't have to stand on his head and watch it as it dangles from the cord...SUCKS! Having to rope my passenger to their seat in order to barely get the awkard winding cord to the lighter outlet, so it wouldn't be hanging in the air like a clothes line...SUCKS! having to check the cord to make sure it was plugged in all the time, because the slightest little bump of the cord knocked it out of the outlet...SUCKS! Having then to get the stupid thing to work after all of that...SUCKS!!! This player was so not worth buying!!!
