-- Quality of Video and Conclusions

   The player's other feature is the ability to play VCD (video cds).  Included in the package is the audio and video cables to connect to any television set that has RCA jacks (yellow, red and white).  The VCD controls can be done through the remote also.

   To test the video capabilities of the player, I used one of my favorites, "A Better Tomorrow 3" starring Chow Yun Fat.  Ok, maybe not my favorite, but it was the closest VCD that was open on my desk!  To start the VCD, I just inserted the VCD and it played automatically, as simple as that.  All the features like fast forwarding can be done through the remote.

   If no disc is in the player, it defaults back to the NAPA screen shown above.  Pardon the black line across the top, that is just my flash on my camera not catching everything.

   The player does a nice job on the video, picture is crisp and the audio is adequate.  What is great about this is that there is absolutely no load time, the player is rather fast.

   In conclusion, if you need a product that plays cds, mp3s and VCDs, this is the one!  The written manual could have more instructions in it and the player should of had anti shock precautions.  All in all, this player is great in the home, bad for the person who likes to jog.

Pros:

  • 3 in 1 multimedia player

  • Great price

  • Incredible remote

Cons:

  • Easily shocked

  • LCD screen can be bigger

  • Manual needs more instructions
