Summary: I bought this unit about a year ago it has performed like a sony should a bit pricey then compared to others now but the fun aspect of a portable dvd player slash viewer is phenomenal!I rate this product 5 stars because of the ability to change screen modes for what or how you care to watch it small big etc and it's ability to play with extreme quality no kidding it will rival all if not most other units plays well on it;s output to other video sources!
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! I have since purchased an infrared transmitter "LaserLink" and receiver set (available from Sony only) to send excellent picture and sound, without wires, across the room to my Sony 27" Trinitron.
Close to perfect, doesn't like cold weather shipping

Summary: I'd thought about buying the Sharp but Sony sounded better so Idid some shopping around and found it for (a relatively low price), that took care of the most often heard complaint of high price. The construction of the player seems fine to me, not much you could do to make such a small device better.
Summary: Wow!!! This portable DVD player is my favorite Sony toy!!! Not only is the video quality excellent but there are also A/V inputs and outputs. In other words, hook it up to a big TV or hook your VCR or camera up to it. I think the most important feature is that it can play dual layer discs. Often confused with double sided discs, dual layer is two metal films on one side of the disc. It's basically 2x regular DVD data on only one side.
Summary: I hit the "Buy" button as soon as I saw this was available. It's a beautiful machine. Despite the metal body, the Sony is still small and light, and probably isn't as prone to scratches as its plastic-bodied counterparts. That's a good thing because despite tossing mine in my briefcase daily it still looks brand new.
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. This therefore makes it an ideal product for parents to buy who want to shut up their kids whilst they are driving (Whilst the parents are driving, not the kids!). The player features an internal battery which, once fully charges ...
Pros: Thin, lightweight, great sound
Cons: Not an amazing picture quality, a remote (Why? ! )
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 on this too! Fantastic! I have also plugged in my PS One, PS2 and other devices into it and it works flawlessly. So using it as a secondary display is ...
Pros: looks good, slimness, auxilary inputs
Cons: initial cost, higher res screens out there .
Excerpt: Es supercompacto y con una calidad de audio y vídeo superior para un estilo de vida dinámico. Este DVD Player portátil es famoso por dos cosas: es uno de los mas ligeros y pequeños del mercado; y fue el primer DVD Player en ser llevado a una misión espacial. El DVP-FX1 tiene un atractivo diseño que junto con su cubierta de magnesio (el único en el mercado) le da una apariencia única con un toque de elegancia.
Excerpt: Este DVD Player portátil destaca básicamente por dos cosas: es uno de los mas ligeros y pequeños del mercado; y fue el primer DVD Player en ser llevado a una misión espacial, ¿curioso verdad? El DVP-FX1 tiene un atractivo diseño, moderno pero no demasiado futurista, que junto con su cubierta de magnesio (creo que es el único en el mercado que la tiene) le da una apariencia única con un toque de elegancia.
Excerpt: SONY nos hizo avanzar hacia el futuro con este DVD que apareció en el mercado español en 2001. Este reproductor de Digital Versatile Disc fue una de las revoluciones que marcó la tecnología en 2001. No exagero demasiado. Su calidad de imagen y sonido, y el tamaño compacto del aparato hicieron dar un paso adelante a la competencia en su búsqueda de superar a este SONY DVP-FX1. ¿Qué le hace tan impresionante?: 1.-Su calidad de imagen.
