GPX 9" LCD Portable DVD Player with Swivel Screen, & 7-pc. Access.
Don't like it
I purchased this GPX dvd player on 12/19/12, but didn't try to use it until last night, 5/4/13.
I should have done so earlier because then, I could send it back. When I inserted a disc, the only thing it did was tell me there was "NO DISC", over and over again. The GPX website has no help whatsoever. Save your money.
I purchased this for my grandchildren so that they can look at DVD's while riding in the car. It's a very good DVD player but the volume is very low. If they have to view the DVD from the front of the car, they will not be able to understand the words because the volume is very low. Other than that, it works for me as well as for them.
I bought this for my husband who is a truck driver and sometimes he has downtime and is stuck in his truck for hours for a loadg or unloading time. He just goes back to of the sleeper and watches his favorite DVD'S. States the sound is not as loud as he would want it to be. he will be adding small speakers to it. He is happy that he can watch his favorite DVD's.
purchased for myself to sit outside with. Picture was great, but sound faded in and out. Ear plugs did not solve problem. I liked the features,just couldn't hear the dialogue.
All extras included great product for the money sound is good happy with purchase

Suits My Needs-Perfect for the DVD-Toting Traveler
Based upon your needs, this will either be the perfect product for you....or possibly not. It is perfect for what I needed, which was simply to watch DVDs from wherever I was at without needing an internet connection. I have the movies I want to watch on DVD (I don't download TV shows, however I can do that if I want to on my laptop) - I needed a simple player to watch my movies on from the sofa, a spare bedroom, the car, wherever. I also use it to play my workout videos in my workout area in which there is no TV. I have found the sound and picture quality to be what you would expect from a lightweight, portable DVD player in this price range - fine for my needs, no complaints.
I have been impressed with the battery life. If you follow the instructions and FULLY CHARGE the battery, then unplug and use as needed, I found the battery to last several hours - I did several workouts and watched a few movies before I needed to recharge. Then, I did as instructed, let battery exhaust completely and fully recharged.
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase which does what I require: play DVDs. I have put my camera's memory card into it just to see how that feature worked and that was fine. Not sure I'll use that feature much. If you're looking for something small, lightweight and easy to use to take on vacation, or just have in areas of your house that don't have a TV, this is perfect. Don't expect theatre sound or picture quality, but I think for the price, the sound and picture quality are quite good.
For the hip teenagers and young adults, stick with iPads or the other devices on which they can download their latest and greatest fare, but for those who are just looking for something easy to tote to watch their movies on, this is great.
The case and accessories are very nice, compact, makes it easy to transport.
Overall, for those that own or rent DVDs (how old school!) and like to spend their time waiting at dance lessons, DRs appts and more catching up on their Downton Abbey or Great Courses DVDs, or those that travel for business and like to take workout DVDs with them, this is the answer!!!!!!
RETURNED IT BUT CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS GREAT!
Bought this on December 21 in the blue for my 27 month old granddaughter and daughter for Christmas as they were at my home for the Christmas week. They were excited about using it when they got back at their home in Ohio. Unfortunately, the month went by and it was only used a couple of times before the sound malfunctioned. She had to send it back to me so I could return it in the original packing with the paperwork. Since it arrived after January 31 I had to send it back after the "deadline." I immediately phoned customer service, they were very accommodating, and was given permission to return it as "defective." The represetative allowed me to use the easy return label at no cost. So now I'm watching for my refund to be applied this week.
1st product didn't work sent back. QVC quick to send replacement but that was also sent back within 12 hours of receipt. Player worked once, sound poor and then the screen went totally dark. Sent back for a full refund.
Offer was good with the accessories but actual player turned out not to be. Bought for a gift so this was a huge disappointment.
best DVD player i ever purchased
i love the swivel screen and clarity of the screen as well it makes movies look so real and i like the fact that it has a card slot for memory cards so i can look at pictures i hook up a pair of speakers and the sound blows me away kudos GPX keep up the good work
Didn't meet our needs
Purchased this as a replacement for an older portable DVD unit (Toshiba, not purchased from QVC). As a portable player we didn't have any problems for the short time we used this player. My son, however likes to connect a portable DVD player to the TV in his playroom for larger screen viewing. Our existing portable DVD player does this extremely well, however this unit does not. I had to purchase a $15 adapter in order to connect it to the TV and we couldn't get the sound to project from the TV (it was coming out of the unit), so the sound quality was very poor.
If you like to connect your portable player to a TV (we do this at home and when traveling), this player is not for you. Otherwise it seemed to work fine.
Great for kids
I bought one of these in blue for my daughter's birthday and she likes it a lot. She is 9 and can take it in the car, in the yard, wherever she wants. For her it sounds and looks good. I gave it only 4 stars because the player is loud with the DVD spinning inside while playing.
