Good overall product.

Professionally Unemployed Dude "WANKER", Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I am (basically) happy with my Philips 8.5-Inch Portable DVD Player with Ipod Dock. It's portability is EXCELLENT! All of the listed features are (thus far) working well: It docks and plays movies from my IPOD touch (while keeping the ipod charged!).

Good little machine

Doug3847, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a Christmas present for my son, so I only played around with it for a little while. First off, the picture quality is good, but not great. The one thing that I have noticed is it works better with the iPod Touch than what has been reported by some others.

Good but a few problems

Pat, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: The Philips portable dvd player is a great companion on long trips. The wall charger didn't work at first, but a new one was recieved. The remote also does not seem to function correctly. Besides that, the player works fine and is a great piece of hardware.

Cheap, tablet form factor, internal ipod tray, bad picture

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 August 2010
  • Summary: The price on this type of device is ludicrously low at this point. The tablet form factor is nice, but doesn't protect the screen like the clamshell iLive. Just as with it's competitor the iLive, it's difficult to get the source properly set to iPod.

A cheap portable player

Eliza McManus, Amazon
30 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this portable player refurbished. It's a cheap player and although it does the job it feels like it could break very easily. The parts feel cheaply made and I wouldn't have paid anymore than I did for this dvd player.

Good multimedia player for the price

dolphin "dolphin", Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: It plays dvd/cd/cdr etc. as well as data dvd/cd. It connect and plays ipod/iphone music and video. It plays files in SD cards. It probably displays standard component TV. It is pretty good at playing files up to 720x480 size (standard dvd) and convert to its screen size.

A Video Review on the Philips 8.5" DVD Player/iPod Dock

CKE, Amazon
7 February 2010
  • Summary: Length:: 9:09 Mins There are many reasons why you would want an DVD player that includes an iPod dock. Ohilips have combined them (and a flash memory card reader) and created the DCP851.

Excellent Choice

XONSETH "LISSETTE", Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: Excellent product: bought it for my husband's Ipod and it works great with it. My son uses it also because it is so portable when my husband watches another program on tv so I can have them all happy in the same room like now. I am also about to travel into Cancun and will take it with me.

Super-nifty gadget

Jerry Saperstein, Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: If you can score one of these on sale as I did, don't think twice: just buy it. The DCP851 is unusually versatile. It plays regular video DVDS. And DivX DVDs and CDs, audio and MP3 CDs, JPEG and Video CDs. If that weren't enough, the DCP851 also accepts SD/SDHC/MMC cards - and has an iPod dock.

Found a car mount

Lucas A. King "king", Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: The biggest concern for most people was the car mount. I have found a really good car mount that will work great for most tablet portable dvd players, to include this one in particular. It is much safer than those velcro straps and can even be slightly adjusted for your viewing pleasure.
