I have had this dvd player for about 3 months now . Nothing has broken on it , and it plays all the dvds i have . Unfortunately it can 't play all of the dvd . I have several tv shows on dvd so they are divided by episode . On 2 dvds so far it refuses to play certain episodes with no problems on the others on the dvd . Luckily i also have a ps2 which can play those episodes the player can 't . Unfortunately i bought a player because the ps2 could n't play all my dvds , and now the player can 't play everything .
