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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I used to use this DVD player mainly when I was younger to keep me entertained in the car on long journeys. I would put in a film of a DVD containing episodes of my favourite TV program and sit there quietly for hours.
Pros: Thin, lightweight, great sound
Cons: Not an amazing picture quality, a remote (Why? ! )
Excerpt: I recently entered a competition on a website which sells gadgets just for men. The prize was this lovely Sony DVD player. I was overjoyed when it turned up on my doorstep without me splashing out.
Excerpt: Well, after having this DVD player for 4 years now, I can say without a doubt, it's been the best. One of the best features of this particular DVD player is the auxilary input. I am using this at the moment with the inputs of the DVD connected to the composite out of my VHS player, so I can watch TV...
Pros: looks good, slimness, auxilary inputs
Cons: initial cost, higher res screens out there .
Excerpt: Appearance ----------------- The sony looks very similar to most of the other portable DVD Players available. It has a 7" LCD screen which is pretty standard, all enclosed in a pretty metallic case. It is quite heavy though for a portable DVD player, i think the battery adds most of the weight.
Excerpt: I've recently come back from a trip from Japan - Everything is just so much better and cheaper. Out of all the DVD players on offer though, I chose the Sony product. Why, you ask? Well... Power supply unit is multi voltage - most of the others aren't - so this baby will work anywhere...
Pros: very portable - DTS,AC3 5 . 1 decode
Cons: additional battery pack cost extra with japanese model - adds to weight .
Excerpt: Dem Thema DVD stehe ich etwas skeptisch gegenüber. Ich setzte mich normal mit jeder art von neuen Teschnichen Medien auseinander und das hat bis jetzt auch immer gut geklappt. Aber bei der DVD bin ich mir etwas unsicher heut zu tage wird ja mehr die CD als die DVD genutzt das kann keiner leugnen.
