I bought this to keep my granddaughter occupied on a six hour car trip and to use in hotel room! It kept our trip from becoming frustrating! Walmart was the only place I could find a portable dvd player! it was easy to use and came with everything you needed for a roadtrip including the cable to hook it up to tv!
I am so disappointed with the Sylvania DVD Media Player. The price was fantastic and my family and I were going on a 1300 mile road trip and I purchased this to keep the toddlers entertained. It worked great for the trip to the destination. The only problem is that we have to return and now we have to purchase a new system because the player randomly "died". Thinking it might be the movie that was currently in the player that was causing the problem, I changed the movie and....nothing. Considering this DVD player was $40....I guess you get what you pay for. My suggestion is pay more and get a player that is more reliable and will last.
I bought this for my 6 yr old to use on long car trips. It was easy enough for her to use w/o help and the price was good. The screen swivels around to fold flat making it easier to hold w/o accidentally hitting any buttons. FYI- when charging make sure the off/on switch is off or it won't charge.
I love the fact that it came with every kind of adapter imaginable. That meant my daughter could watch in the car without me having to get a new charger.
The battery life seams a little short. Controls for volume and navigation are not as easy to use as other models I have used. On the plus side, the swivel feature works great, and as long as you plan ahead the device will have enough charge for one movie. If you forget it isn't to bad having it plugged in while driving.
Great DVD player. We love this dvd player so much, my teenage daughter wants one for herself. It's great value. We love, love the fact that it hooks up to the TV and it comes with all plugs and even an adapter for the car. You cant go wrong with this purchase. Good sound, great quality picture.
I bought it for two younger children because it was cheap and durable. I would recommend for an older child because of the volume control which is tricky for an adult to master. I do like it , the picture is good, it seems like it is a good value for the price. The battery life could be longer, but I was aware of that when I bought it.
Works better then you would think for the price. The sound doesn't get real loud but worked well with headphones.
Had a long road trip and a 2year old. This kept him entertained and the ride stress free. Great deal for the money.
The only problem with this little player is that the volume can`t be turned up very loud, I guess because it is low wattage or amps.
The AV output port did not work. The USB port recognized the drive, but could not find the movies that were on it, so maybe it does not read MP4 like it claimed to. Without these, I simply returned the device the very next day.
My son is almost 6 & had the same dvd player for several years & it finally died so we bought the sylvania dvd player. The first one stopped working after 3 weeks so we took it back....by the way sylvania customer support is a joke! They wanted us to pay $7 to ship it to them to repair. We got a 2nd sylvania dvd player & it quit working after a couple of hours. Both had the same issue...you put a dvd in & it says no disc. We tried multiple discs & rebooting...still nothing. Worst dvd player I've ever owned!
This feel apart after one use. The entire board inside of the player shifted to where it was no longer functional. Was returned.
I purchased this item the first time for my five year old granddaughter to watch movies during an 18 hour trip. The screen would not even come on to play from minute one from opening the box; all we got were burned in lines across it. After driving a couple of states, we returned it and exchanged it for another. The second one would turn on and then stop playing seconds into the movie. Needless to say, it was a LONG car ride. These things obviously were poorly manufactured with no quality control standards in place. Don't even attempt to purchase this item!
I brought this item for my grandson and he loves it .
The player does well with most DVDs although it's a little picky about anything I recorded on my DVD recorder off TV. I never know if a home DVD is going to play on it. The truly weird thing about it, though, is that the volume controls are the same buttons as the Stop and Play buttons, so you have to hold them down to change the volume. Accidentally tap it and you've just killed your DVD! Why? I have no idea. It doesn't seem like a volume control would add that much to the size of the player! Although this works fine and was a great price, I probably wouldn't buy it again. It's just annoying. We're working on using the remote more, but who can find that in the car?
Horrible! Turned on but would not play dvds. Returned for a similar Phillips brand that works great.
We bought this for our three and a half year old grandson to watch videos in the car. It's a good little player with one HUGE drawback - it doesn't have a way to attach it to the back of the headrest! Our grandson had to hold the unit whilst watching which is not easy for a little one to do for any length of time.
Seriously considering returning this.
Great for kids in car
pretty good for the price
