I thought I would give RCA another chance because I've had 0 luck with them in the past,My wife got this for my birthday last year early Jan. 2011. A little over a year later it is having problems, not playing discs, unit turns on but no sound and the remote or power button on the unit will not turn off the unit, you have to unplug it. It takes about 3 or 4 times of turning on and unpluging it before the sound comes on. My sugestion is look at something Sony or Samsung if you want it to last. Stay away from Phillips, Magnavox, and RCA they WILL disappiont you.
