Summary: Performance was pretty good for 2 years and 2 months. Now it registers "disc error," and the question is whether to throw good money after bad trying to repair it. Think I'll look for a different brand.
Summary: I purchase this red and black glassy LG DP885 8.5inc portable dvd player on Oct 7th 2008 from Amzon's one of market place store. It started from first few days, dvd player was picky and some can play, some not, even bought from store.
Summary: My mother bought me this player for Christmas 2008 and after about 3-4 uses, the screen went almost completely white. You could see some of the picture (like outlines of people's bodies and some words), but basically nothing in the DVD you are playing is visible.
BROKE in 5 months!! Terrible "Cust. Service" Runaround!

Summary: Bought this for the kids. Screen went blank after 5 months. Called LG Cust. Service. They said item was discontinued, & they'd send pre-paid shipping label for return for refund. 4 weeks later still no label. Afraid to ship back because I'll never receive refund. Spoke to CS reps.
Summary: .I just purchased this unit, and I am very happy with the movie quality, sharp and crisp. The sound is excellent, specially if you use IPod buds. Tried to see pictures using the USB port, but they showed very grainy and slow.
Summary: I have both this unit - the LG DP885 and the Sony FX820, so this is comparing these 2 units and bringing out the strengths / weaknesses of both. This is not so much of a technical review, but more from a functional point of view.
