Summary: I purchased a GPX PD951BU 9 Inch Portable DVD Player and it is a FANTASTIC player. I do not know how it would compare to the 808BU here but the GPX brand is great. Any other review saying GPX is not good is wrong. I have purchased and returned so many. I tried RCA, Panasonic, Sony... all of them failed my expectations. They (RCA, Panasonic, Sony, Phillips) all had some kind of problem.
Summary: On about the 4th video, this thing quite working and started smoking! You know where there is smoke there tends to be fire! Not fun to deal with on the interstate. I called the company about it to report the concern and they kept telling me to call them back in a couple of days. When something starts to spontaneoulsy combust in my van, next to my children, you had better tell me something better than call back in a couple of days! My last statement is... Buyer beware.
Buy from a company that stands behind its stuff, not from GPX

Summary: Though not this exact model, my GPX portable DVD player stayed in its box until the day before a family vacation. Once out of the box, the player worked for 2 hours and then the screened died. Please note that it was in my possession (not my kids) before and after it died. My wife and I spent about an hour trying to think of some button or command we must have pressed - it couldn't be the new player, could it?!?
Summary: Every product will have problems! I see previous reviews that are poor...but not for me! My husband got this player 2 years ago at a door buster sale the day after Thanksgiving and it's been awesome ever since! It's now time to replace it and I'm struggling to find a player that doesn't have poor reviews. That's why I say every product is gonna have problems...poor reviews....you just have to take a chance and hope that you are in the majority (good reviews).
Summary: Pros : Nice and compact with a very good picture. Inexpensive so very good purchase for a child of 8 and up. Cons: Sound is ok need to buy better ear buds. The ones they supple are hard and they hurt my ears.
Summary: When I recevied it, it worked ok. After a while it became more and more picky with DVD's. Today, even most of brand new DVD's it doesn't play properly. Similar with movies on a USB Stick. It reads only a few formats. Don't buy it! It was a waste of my money.
Summary: This portable dvd player is the best. The picture quality is awesome . You can take it anywere but don't let the small size discourage you because the picture is just great and does not seem small. You also can play cds and picture dvds/cds on it. Plug it in at home, recharge it and no need to plug in or you can plug into your car cigarette lighter. You will not be disapointed.
Summary: Wow, what's with the screen? I just got mine, and tried out various media in it. The screen is pixelated like an old TI we had when I was a kid, and I am not exaggerating. You would not believe that this is for sale in 2008. I am in shock. This is definitely going back.
