I watched movies and listened to them. I wanted to hear video and use my television. This is exactly what I got from this product. The chance to be entertained at less time and do other choices as well. This is a great product for others who want to watch videos.

It does everything the description said it would. It also uses dics that would not work in my other one and they were brand new ones. The cable I ordered with it works just fine also

I bought this last August and it's January, I've used it maybe 5x max, and it doesn't work. Terrible purchase.

It is a lot better picture being sent than the same priced ones at local Mart stores ( Almost looks like HD, T.V.'s not ). I put them in the kids rooms and kept the controls and the kids (young 4-6 yrs old) can use them by themselves. Great deal for me i'm going to buy a couple spare for later.

I purchased the DVD player for a friend, who doesn't have a computer. From day 1, he was complaining that the player wouldn't play certain DVDs, and it would freeze toward the end of others. I traded him another DVD player, and he hasn't had a problem since. However, now, I'm having problems with this DVD player. It stated out not playing certain DVDs (as it had with my friend.) Now, in addition to freezing and inability to play certain DVDs, it won't show any color.

This was the first time we purchased with Overstock.com. We were very pleased with the DVD player/recorder. Even more impressive,was the price. Can't say enough about the great customer service and all the updates on tracking and delivery. Would highly recommend using Overstock.com. Thank you

VG player because it up scales any DVD. According to the book, it will not copy everything, particularly if it is copy protected. I bought it to take the things I saved off my satellite DVR, before I cancel my service with the big "D". This unit is slim and easy to hook up, plays very well, even old DVD's. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good low cost DVD.

Slim and compact DVD player. I have had no problems with it and use it almost everyday. Provides good play back of the movies and easy to set up and use. Only negative is the remote. Buttons are coded a bit weird for stop and play etc. But once I memorized what is what, is a snap to use.

My house wais in the dinosaur age and didn't have DVR capabilities. I was trying to replace our DVD player/recorder and discovered that they're fairly rare now. This Toshiba looked good, and the price was good also. However, after connecting it I tried to record a program on a channel different from the one I was watching. No go. Back to the manual I went, only to discover one sentence: 'This model is unable to record a program on one channel while watching another channel.' (not quite verbatim) What is a DVD recorder for, then? That sentence should figure prominently in the description of the item on the Overstock site. I've been very pleased with everything else I've bought from Overstock, and with the service, i.e., I returned this player and had no problem in doing so. I had also bought a warranty for it and was able to return that. (I've come into this century and we now have DVR capabilities.)

Needed to replace a broken unit. Don't view DVDs often so difficult to assess quality just yet. Easy hookup.

This recorder is affordable and works well. Record quality for 2hr is good and 4hr mode is acceptable. I wouldn't go any longer than 4hr mode. For the price. this model has been great. I had a more expensive panasonic before that had a little better picture quality and functions, but it had so many problems and defects, I was glad when it finally died.
A portable DVD player allows you to watch DVD movies on the go, which can be great for long car trips or plane rides where a movie is the perfect way to pass the time or just for watching a movie any place where you want to be comfortable. There are a few important things to consider when buying a portable DVD player to ensure that you'll be getting your money's worth.

Once you've purchased your new DVD player or Blu-ray player, you'll still need to connect it to your home theater system.

DVD recorders come with a lot of features, so you may want to do some searching for the specific features you want your DVD player/recorder to have. Here are the top five features to look for in DVD recorders.
A DVD player is a key component of any home theater system. You can connect a DVD player to your home theater receiver or directly to your television.

Here are some of the advanced features you have to look forward to when upgrading to Blu-ray.
Do you have an old collection of VHS tapes? The magnetic tape in those VHS cassettes can deteriorate over time, so they won't last forever. But there's no need to throw them out. You can digitally transfer all your old home videos and movies to disc before the tapes go bad. You can connect your old VCR to a DVD recorder or use a VCR/DVD combo to transfer your videos. Then you can enjoy all your old movies on your DVD player.
When you purchase your first Blu-ray player, you want to choose movies that show off the technology's strengths. Although you will most likely want to expand your collection to include those titles you previously owned on DVD, your best choice is to start purchasing those movies that will really show off Blu-ray's capabilities and will allow you to get your money's worth out of your player quickly. Many of the new releases available on Blu-ray include all the bells and whistles needed to allow you to enjoy your new player to the fullest.
