Summary: This is a great product. I am assigned in areas of conflict so desert sand and dust are an issue. A weekly spray of "canned" air, wipe down with a damp cloth and weekly use of a lens cleaner and I am assured of reliable service. The only down is the battery only charges when the unit is turned off. Otherwise, it is a durable, light weight product with a good size screen that allows the unit to remain portable.
Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Portable
Summary: This is exactly what I was expecting for a portable dvd player. I had a little trouble with the directions on charging the battery, but once I followed them, all was well. The picture quality is great. I saw a complaint about the sound, but it was what I would expect for something so small. Thank you for all the good information that helped me make a good decision.
