I purchased a GE DVD/CD Home Theater System from Walmart a few years ago, and if I had the chance to do it over again, I would not purchase this same system again.

Oh, the GE has some great features that I really like, such as 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound and a subwoofer that shakes the floor during a powerful destruction scene in my favorite "blow up the world" movies. The GE Home Theater System has two auxiliary jacks as well for hooking up other components, one of which I use for my Xbox 360 so that I can feel my living room shake while I'm playing my favorite "blow up the world" video games. I can play my music CDs, including the songs that I recorded into MP3 format, and I can view my JPEG photo collection on my television.

But I don't have an AM/FM stereo receiver on this GE Home Theater System, and it really bugs the heck out of me that I can't listen to the local radio with these speakers. And I've been having trouble with the DVD player lately: my movies will sometimes stutter or freeze, and sometimes I can't get them to load at all into the Home Theater System, but will have no problem watching the exact same movies on my much older and more heavily used computer DVD/CD player. It's just been a very frustrating experience that I don't care to repeat. Next time, I'm taking a lot more time to compare different models and features before I lay my money down on a 5.1 Home Theater System.
