Thinking about buying a cheap DVD unit for the church youth room? Skip the Trutech T600-D DVD player unless you don’t mind a device that can’t handle DVD menus, pixelates the picture during scene changes and generally strains to keep up with video.
For $27 I wasn’t expecting much, but at least expected playback to function reasonably well. I was using the S-video connection and tried legitmate DVDs, including Life Is Beautiful (one of my all-time faves), the first Lord of the Rings, a random Rescue Heroes and a Disney promotional DVD about planning a trip to the Magic Kingdom (my kids love this one). In each case, the video would stutter at least every couple of minutes and often had difficulty handling menus.
I liked the price and narrow size because it could squeeze into my existing cabinet, but it looks like a return to Target and some more research.
