This is probably one of the few dvd players at $ 40 that can play almost everything you throw at it .
The plus points are -
Ability to play most discs - i tried dvd , vcd , dvd-r , audio cd and it played all
The downside -
The build quality shows why its so cheap - small scratches on the base plate , something that you would n't see on a sony and an overall plasticky feel
Remote buttons are small and closely spaced , especially with the menu buttons .
If these otherwise minor issues can be fixed , i would rate this a 5 star machine .
