The player looked good right out of the box , offering lots of features and good styling . I immediately had problems getting the player to recognize two of my favorite dvds . After " loading " for what seemed like a very long time , the display indicated " no disk " . After multilple tries , one of the disks was finally recognized but video was poor and features not available . Only one disk played through to completion successfully . At $ 49 . I guess you get what you pay for . I 'd recommend against this unit .
