I experienced the same problems another reviewer had, i.e., the remote would not always function or the machine would not always respond. I replaced the batteries with no improvements. It would freeze, or lock-up, with no way to exit the dvd, except by pulling the power plug. And then, we could NOT return or speed ahead in the movie -- had to apologize to guests for not being able to have a positive 3D movie experience -- only a huge headache & disappointment
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
