I WISH THERE WAS A NEGATIVE STAR OPTION FOR THIS PRODUCT
on August 15, 2008
I have previously owned a portable Audivox DVD player for my car, which gave me all sorts of problems and Audiovox stopped supporting after only 3 years (in other words, they wouldn't repair at any price). Thus, I entered into this purchase with hesitation. However, I wanted an under-the-cabinet small screen TV, and there are only a few options in this market sector.
I should have learned, but same as my last Audiovox purchase, this one was problem-laden. While it worked (all of 6 weeks) it was adequate. Decent picture, average sound (I didn't expect more for the size and price), and installation was fairly easy.
However, about 5 weeks into ownership, the screen went black. No warning, no power. It happened once, and I thought perhaps a fluke event. However a week or so later it went black again, same thing, no power, no picture. And it never came on again.
I've called Audiovox again, and again their service has been non-existent. They actually recommend "buying a new one" and told me they "can't always get parts for these".
It makes me think they don't actually make any products but pay someone else to make items for them.
I wish I had just tried the more-expensive Sony.
* Decent video quality
* Screen can be turned 270 degrees
* Remote is user-friendly
* Includes radio; decent sound.
* Audiovox products seem prone to failure and Audiovox doesn't stand behind them. Warranty is virtually worthless
