Summary: Most portable DVD players are great for watching movies...the problem is you can't hear the movie - outside car noise or AC window units drown them out. But not this little guy - GREAT sound, and the pic's good too - plus the whole thing isn't much bigger than the DVD itself -so it's highly portable. I only wish the battery lasted longer.
Summary: I did what the others said to do when I first got this for my son. After watching a full length feature dvd with it plugged in, I shut it off and unplugged it. At first the battery lasted 5 hours. It was great! But it started to hold less and less of a charge. Now it won't hold a charge at all no matter what we do.
Summary: Cumbersome to use, but good quility picture and fair sound. Can attach it to a TV for a larger picture. I however use it rarely because I now use my vedio IPOD which can do more with much better quality for home, and offsite program displays for differant organization.
Summary: I like this model of player for ease of use for younger children, in fact it is the second one I have purchased. But I cannot rate it as high as I would like due to the fact that both players have had problems with the "door" getting too loose and it then will not signal the DVD to start playing. I have remedied this by holding it closed with a clear elastic band. A big pain. They need to make a better latch.
Summary: I liked the screen size and the clarity of the picture. I did'nt like the fact that it does'nt come with a remote control,and the ff control on the unit ca'nt shuttle scan disk. it will only take you to the next chapter!over all a good product that could be better!
Summary: I would love to try this. First one was shipped broken (make a clanking noise and woulnd't work). Sent it back and got a new one that didn't read a DVD. I may try one more time. Its pretty heavy, but I am hoping the larger screen is better then other small portables or i-pod type machines.
Summary: I received this for Christmas 2005 as a gift. The new player out of the box wouldn't hold a charge for longer than 2 minutes no matter how many different ways I tried to play and charge it. In February 2006 I had to pay Audiovox $60 for a new battery (item was a gift so I did not have original receipt for the warranty). Now it is October 2006 and the new battery has stopped taking a charge again.
Summary: I bought this thing for my brother and he used it four or five times. The battery is "defective" and needs to be replaced. I've heard on a number of sites that the batteries are "defective." Don't buy this thing if you plan on using it without an adapter of some sort. Costs $35 to replace the battery, which is built-in and requires sending the whole machine back. With shipping, I'm sure it costs over half of what most people pay.
