    Fine for simple playback of DVDs, but buttons on remote are small and could be confusing. Difficult to backup or find a specific point on the DVD

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    The player is good for the price. It is slow to react to button pushes, can be frustrating. Basic functions should be larger more easy to read, not scattered on the remote.

    5 for Value & Features, 3 for Upscaling = 4 Stars

    I needed a new DVD player for a living room that will only received occasional use, therefore was looking for the least expensive DVD player. Well, this one does meet my requirements with the added benefit of up-scaling with an HDMI cable connection. And at 33% off BB's normal price, I just could not pass this up. PROS: Inexpensive, upscaling with HDMI cable (not provided), inexpensive, small footprint, and a remote with many features. Output options includes HDMI, component, composite, and coaxial jacks. And includes a composite (L/R/Video) cable. CONS: If you setup this player with upscaling the output of a DVD (change default 480p setting to 720p or 1080i/p), then power the unit off, at the next power on it will default back to 480p. Although the remote has many buttons with all kinds of features, it is so small that it can be difficult to only select one of the tiny buttons. BOTTOM LINE: For the amount paid, coupled with the occasional use, it is a super deal, a real 5-Stars. But If you are looking for a primary player, one that you want up-scaling on without resetting at each power on, then this is an average 3-Star player. WOULD I RECOMMEND TO A FRIEND? Since there is no "Maybe", only "Yes" / "No" options, I selected "Yes" but with the caveat of explaining the up-scaling resetting requirement at every power on.

    Absolutely useless

    If I could give this zero stars, I would. The very first DVD I tried to play worked for about two thirds of the movie, but close to the end, it skipped. That by itself is not a big deal (of course, DVDs scratch sometimes). But, instead of skipping, it locked completely up. No chapter skip, fast forward, or even getting back to the menu would work. It just made horrible spinning and grinding noises. So, I gave up on that particular DVD and tried a second one. My second attempt was a two-episode thing. I made it to the end of Episode One, and was waiting for it to go on to the next episode, as I had done dozens of times before with this favorite DVD. It never did. I could hear the disc spinning and grinding in the player just like the first one, and it never continued. All I could see was a black screen after the credits had played through. Eventually, it let me get back to the menu. When I tried to select "play episode two" instead of my previous choice of "play all," once again, the DVD would not play at all. I got more spinning and grinding noises, and a pixelated menu for my trouble. Neither of these DVDs were damaged beyond repair; both of them will play on another player. One DVD messing up is one thing; a coincidence. Two in a row only one day after getting the device out of its box is a defective DVD player. In addition, the return policy for Best Buy is horrific. After trying to click on the return button, and confirming my stupid email, I got an error message saying that my return could not be processed online. That I have to go to a store. Thanks to that, the next time I need anything electronic, I'm definitely not coming to Best Buy, either in person or online.
