Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
The remote sensor is not very sensitive and you have to point the remote directly at it. It often takes me three tries or so to get it to respond. The remote isn't very user-friendly and the options are somewhat limited. It has stopped playing a couple of times, either froze or just turned off in the middle of play. Definitely do not recommend it.
