Summary: I use this every day with a black box HDTV converter and a big antenna. No problems, except sadly, the rca cord has an AV 3.5 mm plug that is 17 mm long not the standard 14 mm, not easy to replace, Stupid Engineering Decision Defect. This is my biggest complaint as I tried in vane to buy a 90° 3.5 mm RCA cord so that it wouldn't stick out of the side of unit. I failed because there is no such thing with a priority jack/plug LG has with unit.
Summary: The DVD portable player by LG is a very good quality product and to me it does deserve 5 stars, as long as you know how to use and keep it. With an original classy design (not that much by now because of Iphone and Ipad) and strong structures, the picture quality is also excellent and cumfortable. To be honest,I can't travel without this jewel.
Worked great for about 10 months then stopped reading DVDs.

Summary: I received this DVD player as a gift for Christmas 2008, but a couple of months ago the DVD unit stopped spinning the disc. Since the unit has a memory card reader I may try to use this as just a photo frame, but as a DVD player it's toast. I called LG tech support but I would have to pay to get it fixed. I'd rather save up my money and get a new player - hopefully one that doesn't break within a year. Bottom line - I say spend your money on something else.
Summary: We had only used this player on three car trips when it started freezing and skipping. When we called LG they wanted us to clean it, which didn't work. Of course the warranty doesn't cover labor, so they wanted us to send it back, pay $70, and they would send us someone else's refurbished unit rather than simply replace it. The customer service was unbelievably bad for a product that was nearly new when it broke.
Summary: when i first saw this product i was super stoked on how cool it looked and the fact that it was a dual picture frame as well and would look really slick sitting on my nightstand so i bought it. the picture quality on this is pretty fantastic. unfortunately after 5 months the disc wouldn't spin anymore. it also started skipping and freezing up. so now it's in the trash. such a shame that it's such a cool design and so different from all the other portables out there.
Summary: The MSRP on LG's website is currently showing $249.00. Circuit City has it with a MSRP of $229.95 and selling it between 169-199. So just watch out that you're not paying over $200 or so when you purchase. I got it at Circuit City for 169.00 over the holidays with free shipping. So far I love it. It's priced about the same as upper priced digital frame alone. Good for office desk top movie watching (if you can't watch on your office computer).
Summary: I was in the market for a portable DVD player, but I wanted a higher resolution screen than most players offer. Of the ones available near me, only this LG model and the Sony FX820 featured a resolution of 800x480. This is far better than what you get on most portables. The LG DP889 is a slick-looking device. It has a glossy screen, which is a fingerprint magnet, but the screen is resistant to scratches. The picture is gorgeous.
Summary: I actually researched so many portable dvd players online because I wanted something pretty good for watching during breaks at work. So I had my mind set on a certain player that they had at circuit city, but when I got there I was stumped on the one I supposedly wanted. A gentleman there suggested the LG DP889 model because it's a digital picture frame/ cd player/ dvd player.
