For the price , it 's a very nice dvd player . The front door is miss aligned on my unit and you have to manually life it up just so slightly for the door to close , a very annoying thing after ahwile . It does play a wide range of formats as advertised which is very nice . And so far have not had any problems with dvds not being able to play . Recommended to anyone looking to purchase a low priced dvd player and not expecting any bells or whistles from a brand name one like sony .
