Plain and simple, it's great!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SDVD6670 Progressive Scan Compact HDMI DVD Player, 1080p Upconvert with USB Input (Electronics)Small footprint, basic operation, easy set up - - 5 minute hook up - - - plug into outlet, connect hdmi from player to tv - - - that's it.
Plays all NTSC (US formatted) dvds (+,-,rw, etc),with no problems. No skipping, lag, or freezing up. It also has a basic random/shuffle option for CD's.
I also like that although it comes with a remote, there are also control buttons on the unit itself. This is just a laziness issue, but if you walk over to the player to retrieve or insert a disc without having the remote in hand, you can still operate the basic functions of the player without having to go back and get the remote.
Note that this also has usb port in front for flash drives but realize that it will not read a large capacity external hard drive - - - just smaller capacity flash (thumb) drives. I've watched avi and mp4 downloads perfectly. Haven't tried any other formats, but assume at least, that m4v would work as well.
I didn't need it to play dvd's from overseas, but if this is a consideration for you, note that the specs do not show that it plays PAL formatted dvds.
Also note that although it comes with audio/video cables and a remote, it does not include batteries (for the remote) or an hdmi cable. Small issue especially considering the price, but just something to know ahead of time so you'll have these on hand when you're ready to hook it up and not have to make a special trip out to get them.
Very, very happy with this purchase. I initially bought one for our flat screen, but was so pleased with it and the price, I bought a second one for our older model tv that is in our exercise room. No hdmi on that older model tv, but hook up was just as easy with the included audio/video cables.
Highly recommend this for anyone wanting a basic dvd player.

I discovered, basically by accident, that this machine will play PAL DVDs from any region. I gave the procedure in my review. --Caroline Bender.

Thanks. Good to know. I didn't try it, but just went by what the specs said. Bonus points for an already great device.

I doesn't seem to remember the spot on the dvd where last played. Any one else has this problem?

It does play avi files problem free. However, DVIX-avi files are becoming increasingly difficult to find for US programming. What I'm looking for is a cheap DVD player that will play an mp4 file reliably. This one doesn't. If it did, it would be perfect.
I'm surprised someone hasn't produced a mp4/avi/mkv compatible player that connects via an HDMI connector. I guess it wouldn't be in great demand as most new HD TV's will allow USB plugins that play all of those file types. Although there are a ton of older HD sets that don't, thus the need for a DVD player with USB connections. Oh well, at least it was cheap!
