USB and SD inputs do not work!!

What is the point in having these inputs if they don't work????

  • from Toronto, ON

USB inputs? What for?

What on earth is the point of putting USB and SD card inputs on a portable video player when it will not play video from the USB inputs? Absolutely ridiculous.

Work absolutely perfectly for my purposes.

Akai 7" DVD player

I found the sound level to be inadequate at a high of only 20 . If there is any other outside noise it becomes hard to hear. It would be better if the sound level went to 30 or more as you could always turn the volume down but you can't increase what isn't there.

Bad Audio

Had the volume turned up to highest (20) and still unable to hear 8f there was any other noise going on, even a bit. Thought it might be better using the ear buds but same thing. Audio just wouldn't go high enough. Also battery didn't even make it thru one movie. I returned product.

Very Satisfied

I recently purchased the Akai 7" portable dvd player in black. I have NEVER used a dvd player in my life (believe it o not). I didn't even know where to find the tab to open the disc player. But the instruction booklet is so easy to understand, numbered diagrams of all features, that in 10 minutes I had the dvd player working like a charm. I am a very happy customer. I highly recommend the Akai player to everyone needing a reasonably priced, good product. I had my player delivered via Canada Post. The delivery came exactly on the day Best Buy told me it would. There was no damage, no scratches. It arrived in perfect condition. I'm enjoying the dvd player daily and hope you have the same success.

Bad Audio

Terrible sound - hard to hear even at highest setting (20 highest). The picture quality isn't that great. It's easy enough to use but not good enough to keep.

You Get What You Pay For

I bought based on some reviews but terrible audio and visual. The highest volume is not enough to hear if there is any background noise at all and you have to even use pretty much highest volume with the earphones unless you're in a very quiet space. The picture/visual is very dark. The good thing is it has an adaptor to plug into your car lighter so can be used in the car. I will pay a bit more to get better sound and picture quality.

Great little thing

This dvd player is the best for the price- long battery life, my kids use it at home and in the car. Easy enough to operate by a 5 yr old. With the output i can also check whats recorded on my camera, use it as a tv.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Good product for the price

Bought two of these for the kids on a long road trip (2500km in 5 days), the kids were kept busy. Excellent value for the price. Sound quality is very good, so is the picture. Product has a chargeable battery which is cool, can work without a power source. I can easily recommend this product to others.

Fpv. First person video monitor.

This player has an "AV input" feature that allows me to hook up a 2.4ghz video receiver to it. I have a Gopro camera attached to a rc quad copter running a 2.4ghz video transmitter. This setup allows me to view, in real time , a view from the quad copter's perspective. I love the versatility of this portable video player and long battery life.
