Summary: I spent lots of time researching and reading reviews on portable DVD players. This one has lived up to the expectations, it is used almost daily by my young kids. Battery life is great, you can watch 2 movies with no problem. The volume controls are located on the player itself. I have yet to use the remote and the player responds flawlessly.
Summary: This gem of a DVD player fits the bill. Easy to handle, clear, sharp picture and best of all, it has a 4.5 hour battery longevity so you don't have to worry about fade-out while watching a movie that runs for a long time. Highly recommended.
Summary: My child takes this player everywhere. The vibration in the car does not make it skip which is a great thing. (The RCA player we had before this player did that). I'm not 100% sure if it was worth $100 or not but time will be the test. I've only had it a couple of months now.
Summary: Bought this to replace a (way-too-expensive) Sony unit that had died. The Orei has been working flawlessly. You can get a little better screen quality by spending a lot more money on other brands, but I doubt you can get better value for money that this. Multi-region, decent screen, good battery life, great price.
It worked well for 23 months. It died suddenly last week.

Summary: In May 2012, I bought this Orei DVD 9 inch player / region free so my kids could watch movies (both Japanese & English) during the 13 hours flight. This player continuously worked good 3.75 hours without charging (not quite 4.5 hours as it says on description) and displayed picture not great but well enough. My kids have been watching so many movies and animation with this DVD player in the car these past several months.
Summary: Being able to play dvds from different regions is very important for us, and not so easy to find. Product works well, though seems a bit loud ( you can hear it working when volume is very low ), compared to others we have had in the past . Seems to load a bit slowly as well. Also it seems to forward only in small increments, and does not give you the option of going forward whole scenes at a time. Unless we havent figured out how to use it yet!
Buy something better - this one is going to Goodwill

Summary: You get what you pay for with this little thing. And not in a good way. This dvd player is awful. It pays no attention to setting and displays every single dvd I've put in it stretched out - even if they're already widescreen! Who wants to watch that? When I hook it up to a television, it just buzzes. No, it's not the television. Same port plays other dvd players, roku, apple tv, all with no issues.
Summary: I normally don't write reviews but I had to with this item. I was very disappointed with this DVD player. The image from the DVD kept freezing when played. It took a very long time to load the disc.When I stopped a DVD and then tried playing it later it would start from the beginning instead of playing where it left off . The picture quality was good, volume was loud.
