Walmart has better

Could not agree more with the 15 of the 17 reviewers. Worked for 3-4 months...then the weird sounds, paired with the slightest attempt of playing the movie started. Just says "loading", while making this horrible demonic high pitched sound. That being said...has anyone attempted to contact AKAI to see whether money will be given back or a replacement will be sent?????

Great product! The only flaw is I can’t tell if its charging or not! 😂

Do not buy this product. At maximum sound 20, still could not hear the dialogues of most movies. The picture is also grainy, and the colors pale. Not a wise buy.

Akai 9” Portable DVD

Bought it to strap it to a car headrest. Had to return, could not hear the DVD movies. The volume was on 20 (the highest) and could barely hear it.

Akai 9" DVD Player (Portable)

This is a very good product and It is easy to handle.

  • from Brantford


Purchased this unit for a gift. Worked ok at first but after the first movie the unit stopped working and was completely dead no power just stopped. Writing on both the remote and the DVDs unit itself hard to see. Also the sound quality was horrible could barely hear even when turned up to 20 on volume control. I do not recommend this product. It's cheap that's all.

Akai 9" Portable DVD Player Model AKPDVD901

Disappointed. Purchased this item for an elderly relative with limited space. Loved the larger 9" screen and the fact it could swivel to accomodate her limited surroundings. The player always sat in the same spot, and there was no jarring it around. It was only used to watch DVDs or play CDs. One minute it was working then the next minute, not. Simular to a previous post, you could hear the disc spinning and the word "loading" kept appearing on the screen, but nothing was happening. I tried to clean it thinking there may be dirt or dust inside but that made no difference. It actually looks like the point of contact has become detatched from it's casing and just not making contact with the disc anymore. Dispite the larger screen and the swivel feature, I will not be purchasing another AKAI product. As for my ratings, since I was not the user of the product, I rated the picture, audio, and ease of use as nutural (3 out of 5) but clearly the design and value were subpar.

Please Don't Waste Your Money!

This is a horrible product! I purchased it as a gift and when I was first opened and tried it played a DVD and seemed to work fine. When it was used again it would only play some DVDs and the USB port is only good for viewing photos of which are terrible quality. Now it won't even play a DVD , it just keeps saying "loading" and spins the disc around . We were unable to return this item due to the fact that it was a gift and didn't realize it wouldn't work until it was too late and beyond the period of time in which it could be returned. The casing appears very cheaply made as well. Be wise, don't buy!,

Expected More

Expected more of this DVD player. Having a USB port I thought it would play videos from a thumb drive but will only show photos. Photos are shown in very poor quality. Some DVDs work and some don't although it claims to play all formats. Manual is not helpful. Disappointed with this product.
