I was going to buy some DVD players for the kids to watch movies on a long road trip, and decided to go with these instead. I found them to be perfectly up to the task with sufficient memory to download multiple movies for amazon prime and netflix. They may be refurbished, but they worked like new and honestly I am not sure they were new. The touch screens are not the best, and the screen resolution is on the lower end, but what a great bang for your buck! I was happy, the kids were happy, and you will be happy with them too!
