If all you're looking for is a simple DVD player then you don't need to look any farther. This is very simple to use, has a simple look, and could even be managed by the most technological inept people in the world. It comes a a remote but also has the standard PLAY, STOP, EJECT, and POWER buttons on the front. If you're looking for something a little more specialized towards your needs I would recommend some other DVD player, like I stated earlier this is only a basic player. Works absolutely great for a child's room or small family area if they you have a tv in there. Not only is this product reasonably priced but also is easy to took up, all you have to do is plug it in and connect two cords that are color coded. It happens to be very durable too, we've had ours for about 3 years now and is still going strong with minimum maintence (I.e. Cleaning every so often). I would highly recommend not only this specific player but this brand as well, not once have I had an issue with any previous products of theirs I have brought.
