I payed $325 for an LG RC199H dvd/vhs player and recorder at Best Buy. The dvd player worked properly for 2 months.
I called LG over 20 times trying to get them to back up their product. They are a Korean company that sells absolute junk. I purchased my son an LG dvd player in Los Angeles at the same time I got mine. His worked about 4 months and it also will not play dvds now.
I will never purchase another LG product.
I do not know why they are allowed to sell their junk in the US.
