Summary: We received this thinking it would be OK but it is actually excellent. It is built better then I expected and the strap on for the car was excellent. I can't begin to describe all of the accessories! It even has a cassette adapter so you can play audio over your car stereo (if you don't have an input jack like the newer stereos). Can't comment on battery life because we haven't used it enough.
Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Lightweight, Portable
Summary: Was looking for a more portable DVD player for travel. Comes with its own seatback holder, which works well. Only problem is changing DVDs requires you to take it out of the holder, which isn't that big a deal. Great picture. Decent sound. Can't comment on durability as we have had it less than 2 months. Only real issue is the stability of the unit when propped up on its own stand. Not great.
Pros: Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Lightweight, Portable
Summary: I bought this after a water leak broke my television. I had DireTV (which still worked) but was on a tight budget and found the video input on this portable DVD player the most economical replacement to watch TV. I returned it only because a friend gave me an old TV he was no longer using. But I miss it and enjoyed the product even more than I thought.
Pros: Easy Controls, Good Picture, Lightweight, Portable
Summary: I have used the product for 3 weeks now, it serves the purpose I have purchased it for, so my kid can watch DVD while we drive, without the big installation expense just mount on any car headrest. Glad I made this choice.
