Lousy product, Lousy company

  • Summary: I purchased a Sony portable DVD player this time last year. Big mistake. It stopped working shortly after the 90 day warranty and Sony would do nothing but let me pay them for a repair/exchange. So I paid for an exchange + Shipping. Then the replacement they sent (same model) would not even turn on.

  • Summary: I had just purchased this tiny piece of electronic wizardry from sony. after playing it for awhile, i found a few things that could have made this machine nicer, lets start with sound quality, it could have been better. 2 earphone jacks would have been nice.

my favorite toy

  • Summary: Listening to cd's is awesome with the surround sound switch (especially with sony's "studio monitor" headphones which are excellent), and I thought the picture was really good EXCEPT when watching a movie that is NOT enhanced for wide screen.

Very nice player except sometimes lacking in video.

  • Summary: I bought this three days ago in a trip to Chicago and so far am very pleased. The sleek silver metal design is very good looking and the sound with headphones is excellent. I highly recommend using them because the sony feature headphone surround sound is excellent.

too many cut-backs

Amazon

  • Summary: it seems that sony took out a lot of the extras just to cut the price down a little. no powercord, an annoying interface, not a lot of thought went into this.

After One Year --- even happier

Amazon
3 June 2001
  • Summary: Gooddog back again ! I reviewed this Sony in comparison to the Sharp DV-L70U (see) about a year ago. I am even happier with it now. I have one correction : the Sony built-in speakers DO produce stereo and even image sounds if placed near a corner of a room!

Disapointing for Sony

Amazon
1 May 2001
  • Summary: The review in "Somewhat Disapointed" is right on the money -- I've compared the Sony unit with the Panasonic seven inch player and the Sony has an average picture at best. The Panasonic has a laser sharp picture. The Sony has great build quality but overall for the price is a disapointment.

What? No power cord?

Amazon
16 January 2001
  • Summary: I have always been a fan of Sony products and recently eagerly awaited the release of their new portable DVD, the DVP FX1. However, I was told by the Sony rep in its Chicago store that FX1 cannot be plugged into a car or airplane outlet; extra batteries would have to be bought and carried instead.

somewhat disappointed

Eugene M. Singer "gene singer", Amazon

  • Summary: the new sony dvd player is not what i would have expected from Sony. The sound is fabulous when using earphones. However,the picture clarity is not nearly as defined as the Panasonic. I have both and the picture quality doesn't compare. The Panasonic is light years ahead of Sony in this area.
