This is a student review. I have to write this for a class assignment. Please rate and review my review.
I received this DVD player as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend in 2004. I really like this product because not only is it easy to use, but also I can take it anywhere to watch any DVD. For instance, I recently went on vacation and we had to fly, so I took the DVD player with me so my brothers and I could watch movies.
How does the Portable DVD Player work?
Watching a DVD is simple with this player. Turn the player on by flipping a switch that is located on the left hand side of the player. After turning the player on, open the cover by lifting up the top half of the player. When you do this, you will see the screen and the buttons. To load the disc, you must open the disc tray by pressing the button in the left hand corner. Then, you must insert the disc with the words facing upward, in the center of the disc tray around the silver circle. Close the tray and wait until it clicks. After it clicks, press the play button located on the right hand side of the disc tray. If you want to charge the DVD player, make sure you have the battery pack on and the back of the player and then you simply take the adapter and plug one side of it into the left hand side of the player and the other side into an outlet in a wall. When doing so, the charge indicator light will come on the front of the DVD player. After it is done charging, the light will turn off. After charging, you can unplug the player and run the DVDs off of the battery pack.
Some people choose to have a warranty on their DVD player and others do not. You can get a one year warranty on it by filling out a piece of paper that comes with the player and send it in to the company and the best part about it is that it's free!
How well does this product work?
What I like about this product is the many accessories you get, the nice picture, and the wide screen. One accessory, the remote control that is included, is really convenient. Another nice thing about the remote is that I can perform all the functions from the remote to the DVD player. I also like the AV cords that come with the DVD player. This is for whenever you want to watch a DVD on your TV using your portable player, you plug the AV cords in the back of the TV to do the right hand side of the portable DVD player. The picture is great on the portable player. It has great clarity and good picture detail. The screen can handle both wide screen movies and full screen, and still have a great picture no matter what. I don't like the sound on this DVD player because it is too quiet. It is fine when I am in the vehicle with my family and no one is talking, but when I am on a bus and there are a lot of people, I can't hear it very well. Despite the sound, I really like this portable DVD player and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an easy operating DVD player.
The only problem I have ever had with this DVD player is the Charge Battery Indicator Light. After having it only for a short time, the light quit working. It doesn't light up whenever it is charging, like it is supposed to. The light is supposed to be on when charging and whenever it is done charging, the light goes off. But, when I try and charge the DVD player the light doesn't work and I never know if the DVD player is charged or not.
Overall, I really like this product. It makes a great affordable gift to give to people of all ages. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an easy operating DVD player with many fun accessories.
