You get what you pay for. If you can afford it, I would suggest splurging a bit more for a nicer system. You are not able to adjust anything other than the speaker output volume. No other adjustments allowed. I have used it 2x and I have to turn the volume up to 40 to hear the system out of 60 max. I have considered taking it back several times, I may give it another week to see if it grows on me.

This product is extremely slow! It freezes and does not allow me to get my movie out of the player. When I try to use the remote it will randomly turn the tv to channel 9.

This DVD player worked just fine. Unfortunately, Walmart placed it under the Black Friday ads on its website, making me believe it was the Bluray DVD player that was in the Black Friday paper ad. It's not a Bluray player. The way this was portrayed on the website makes me feel like a bait and switch victim. It went back to the store.

This DVD Surround sound unit is good for a bedroom but nothing more. It is easy to set up, cute and compact. The speakers are only as tall as a 16oz water bottle. The subwoofer is not very big either. So it works perfect in my bedroom. For the price a great deal considering all it has to offer. I had originally purchased this unit to replace in my living room, but it could never replace what I have. Way to small of a unit for that. Overall I am happy with it for the price and sound quality. Nice to have surround sound in the bedroom for a movie.

Until I figured out how to adjust the individual speaker levels, I was disappointed with the sound. I discovered (no thanks to the user manual) that in order to access the SPEAKERS VOLUME on the setup menu, you have to have the unit in DISC mode with no disc in the unit. This seems to be the only way to enable the SPEAKER VOLUME on the setup menu. Of course you need to have the TV on the correct input to see the setup menu from the home theater. For the best possible audio sound, I purchased a 6 ft Digital Optical Cable for $16 at my local Wal-Mart. What an improvement over the old RCA type audio cables! As my TV only has the RCA type outputs, I connected the OPTICAL IN on the home theater to the OPTICAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT on my Satellite Receiver. Now while watching TV or a program on the DVR, I have the Home Theater Audio Source set to OPTI IN for the best possible sound. As stated before, this is a huge improvement over the old AUX IN RCA type Digital Audio Cable. It took a couple of days of experimentation with the new unit, but it was well worth it! This $98 300 watt unit from Philips is replacing a $200 1000 watt unit and it performs as well as the more expensive unit for half the price!
