Summary: My trusty Mintek MDP-1720 started acting up (and is no longer manufactured, apparently) so I started shopping for a new one. I went with this one, despite the warnings about picture quality, since 1. it was 9 inches, 2. I got a good deal where I bought it from, and 3.
Summary: This dvd portable functions great. It has everything you need and the swivel screen that allows it to lay flat is awesome. However, do not purchase this dvd portable if you care about how good the picture looks! The screen resolution is absolutely terrible!
Summary: I originally had the Samsung DVD-L75 that is a 7" screen with a 4.2hr battery but had some problems with the DVD drive so I thought I'd "upgrade" to the Panasonic. I'm so disappointed with the picture quality that I'm thinking of exchanging it back for a new Samsung.
Summary: I love everything about this unit except the picture. The adjustable screen, the color saturation, and the battery life are great. But if a DVD player doesn't deliver a good picture--and this one doesn't--then the only reason to buy it is if it's competitive on price.
