Yes, it's an early simple and LONG DVD player, but it's perfect for my old TV console I keep in my bathroom since there's nowhere else to put it! It still plays DVDs BEAUTIFULLY and hooks into the TV perfectly, I haven't had ANY problems with it. Performance AMAZING performance! Never overheats or skips any DVDs, plays smoothly every time! Playback Quality Never skips unless there is a scratch or dirt on the DVD, but I always clean them before putting them in so it doesn't have problems. Keeps your place on the disk when you shut it off! Sound Quality For an early player I get great sound from it, not faded or choppy at all. Durability It fits great on top of my old console, is out of the way, and has played every DVD I own perfectly without any issues. Ease of Use Just press the power button, open the drive, put in the DVD, and play! And it keeps your place on the disk when you shut it off!
