Doesn't play all supported devices and content types...
on April 20, 2016
At first I was appealed by the fact that it can play movies and such from an external source such as USB or SD Card and it was advertised that " you can play all your digital entertainment on this via the included built in USB and SD Card Reader...Not only will this unit play all your DVDs and music CDs... you can play all your digital entertainment on this via the included built in USB and SD Card Reader". However this is not true. First the majority of my movies are MP4, and they aren't supported by this unit. another thing is that the USB doesn't support 3.0 USB, and only supports 2.0 USB devices so if you don't have a 2.0 don't bother. It will not ready the 2.0/3.0 supported USBs. Has to be only 2.0! I was lucky to dig through my office and find an old 1 GB thumbdrive that was still 2.0 only. Some of the other items downloaded that I have it says that it isn't supported when I plugged it in. Some other downfalls are the portable bag it comes with is a bit flimsy, and you cannot adjust the brightness, and the 'time' stamp that appears on the screen. But once you watch a movie or something you tend not to notice it. If you have headphones the volume is sufficient. To end on a more positive note, the shipping was fantastic and no issues with the package when it arrived. I have not tested the 5 hour limit of the battery.
