This unit came in my motorhome. After a short time I would hear a static pop in the speakers. Unit would stop working & also froze up making all controls unusable including the remote. Only way to get the unit to work again was to unplug it & re-plug it in. I can accept problems but when I tried to get it repaired RCA's customers service was of no help. DON'T BUY!

They finally sent me a new one. Problems have already started with the new one. When I turn it on it freezes requiring me to unplug the unit & restarting it again. My brother has the same unit in his motorhome & his had started doing the same thing. This unit has some systemic problem. Again, DON'T BUY!

The DVD tray worked once, and that was the first time I used it to test it out when I first set up the system. Several months later, long after I was unable to return the item to the store from which I purchased it, I put in a disc to watch a movie and was unable to open the tray. Had it diagnosed at a shop and they told me the DVD tray motor had burned out and that they would recommend getting a replacement from the manufacturer or buying a replacement rather than spending the money it would take to fix it.

Of course, RCA requires you to pay for the shipping yourself ... which means it's not cost effective to send it back at your own expense. That's the point, I'm sure. They have to know it's a bad product or they'd back up their product with a decent warranty.

Didn't get to watch one movie on this thing.

And as for the speakers ... for the price you can get better speakers if that's all it's going to be used for. You can't even adjust your equalizer to any great degree. It's ok. But you can do better for the amount of money you're going to spend on this.

Don't buy this product.

This unit started out Ok but after about 4 or 5 uses turned to crap. Sometimes it just turns itself off. All of a sudden horrible noise in one speaker. I checked all the connections, set up, etc. Finally called RCA, Should say Pakistan or India.
After trying like all get out to understand them, pleading for someone who could speak English, all to no avail they told me even though it is warrantied for 1 year they can have it fixed for a $40.00 service charge.
I asked to speak to a manager who after about a 10 minute hold I got, at least I think he was a manager. He spoke worst English than the first guy. I told him about the problems all over again and said I should not have to pay since it is in warranty. I said that should not be my problem. He said well that is not his problem either.

Even for the week or two that it did work the sound and performance certainly left a lot to be desired.

RCA by no means is NOT the same company they used to be years ago, now it is in my opinion Junk.

This is the second RCA DVD Home Theater System that has stopped working less than one year after purchase. I know, fool me once...but this one was one-third of the cost of the previous one. There was no support for this model, and the warranty is only good if you feel like spending 60 hours digging through receipts. I'll never buy a DVD player or anything else from RCA.

This So-Called Home Theater System worked decent for 2 weeks. I thought I had a winner until the system started popping through the speakers at any volume. And no - It's not the brand new RCA Tv. I have tried 3 different I-Pods and this POS pops at any volume at random times. It's extremely annoying to the point where I took it down and now consider throwing it away. Do I need to jump through hoops, climb mountains in the snow or dive to the bowels of the Earth for a refund? If anyone at Amazon does take the time to actually read bad reviews - You know how to reach me. After all, you certainly know my account number. After the 2 weeks of decent service, I threw all the shipping containers away. So, if I do send this thing back, it will be packed in a different container.

Only thing I added to the box was a HDMI and optical audio cables. Stylish design and plenty of cable for my 13'x14' room. Though I've tested it, I haven't watched a full movie on it yet, but my FIOS sounds great - even without the optical cable which I'm still waiting for.

This unit is junk. After two - three weeks it developed a hum and then the sound would fade in and out. Several months late I went to switch to a DVD and it gave a loud hum and then went blank. Will not work at all. Absolute junk. Do not buy this unit!!!

By Book lover on August 17, 2009
I bought this item from another retailer for even a higher price than it is on sale here. I just wanted to have it right away.
The features are great, 1080 upconverting DVD player, two Aux in, USB stick compatible, AM/FM Radio, half way decent sound for a small room for the price.

Unfortunately my joy about getting a halfway decent looking small home theater system for a good price was very short lived. To be exact it lasted about three to four hours. This was right after I set it up and was first listening to radio, then CD and watched a movie at the end of the day.
The next morning I started listening to the radio while having breakfast and after that I inserted a CD and got the message "no disc". Same happened to all other CDs and DVDs I tried, even the ones that were working just fine the day before. Customer Service never responded to me.
If you only need a radio you can get cheaper ones. But this is all it is good for after less than 24 hours. It goes right back to the store and I will wait until I'm able to save up for a better, brand name home theater system. Up until then it will be back to normal stereo TV for me.
Do not buy!
