So far the failure rate is 1:300,000. Be careful everybody. Danger
lurks.

$40 DVD players are a waste of money. They don't even last a year,
their output is TRASH.

That's funny. My cheap DVD player is now six years old, and is working
fine. I might buy a more expensive one if it broke down, having a better
feel for what's needed and more important I now know that I want to have a
DVD player around, when back then I was hesitant.

On the other hand it probably will last forever, since I pulled a DVD
recorder out of a recycling bin back in June, and after a bit of
adjustment it works find. That too had to be cheap.
