I had a Sonny DVD player and it would skip on the smallest scratch. This one will play through anything. I am very pleased. And this cost a whole lot cheaper then a Sonny.

I absolutely loved the value to this product. I bought it for my kids and it has taken MUCH abuse over the years...it still keeps on ticking. We bought it back in 2007 for my daughter, but now her and my 2 year old use it for their movies. Very helpful...we have our TV back and it is very easy for kids to operate. There are not too many buttons for them to get confused over. It is also not too sensitive. It plays scratched DVDs too!!! I would recommend it to anyone. Even if we had to buy another one, we have gotten our use from this one.
We use these in a bank of DVDs to run our video arcade system. They run 16 hours a day, and 24 hours on weekends, so they see a lot of service. We date each one when placed in the system, and keep track of how long they last. For the value, we have never found any other brand to come close to price and durability.
I watch a LOT of films, at least 2 per night. Generally, a DVD player will last me ~2 years. I picked this cheap one up after my last one died, and it has lasted only 2-3 months. That's it. Data started becoming corrupted (like a satellite signal during a storm) and will no longer successfully play any DVD. Perhaps it's meant for the occasional viewer, but i wouldn't trust it, not to mention the fact that there is no display: while watching something, you have no idea how far along you are in the film, and in the event you eject the film before finishing it, you have no way to know where exactly you stopped, with neither run time nor chapter. So, if you need something quick and cheap to play the occasional DVD, go for it. Otherwise avoid.
I bought this dvd player for my daughter last Christmas. She tried to use it over the weekend and it wouldn't turn on. I called the 1800number on the dvd player. The guy was kinda helpful, though he had me do everything I had already tried. He then told me I could have it serviced. HaHa in Chicago. I asked "you don't have a replacement warranty?" He said well yes but the warranty is only for 90 days. Hilarious. I wouldn't reccomend this dvd player because they won't stand behind their product for more than 3 months! A dvd player should last for more than a year.
This unit died after 7 months. It has a 12 month warranty but Wal-Mart won't take it back after 90 days. I called Magnavox support and wasted 20 minutes. They just gave me another number to call Funai support. Funai are only open Mon. - Fri. 8:30 - 5:30. For the sake of $29, it was easier to just pay the money and replace it. It's a basic unit but it did the job... until it died. The only reason I bought a cheap brand was because it had to fit in a very small space. It's hard to find these smaller sized units. The only manufacturers still making them are cheap. I've had at least 6 different makes/models of compact DVD players and they last only last 6-14 months. On the other hand, my full size DVD players (that get more use) seem to last forever.
I have had so many problems with this DVD player. The first I bought just stopped working and wouldn't turn on so I bought a new one and I have had this less than 6 months and it broke on me again. It turns on but won't play DVDs or recognize anything. This player has cost me more on buying one right after the other. I will never buy this product again!
