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

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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I purchased this as a refurbished item and was a little worried about the cosmetic aspects of buying refurbished - but was I totally impressed!! Not a scratch on the unit - looked totally brand new!
Summary: I purchase this DVD player for my 9 years old daughter for her studying materials. She loves it is very much. The operation is quite easy and straight. My daughter simply figure it out by her own without reading manual. The player is multi-region compatible to play DVD discs from foreign.
Summary: The Good: Remote Control, Sound is very good, Compact, SD Card Slot The OK: Screen better then reviewed, DVD Player Door, and Hatch Door. Not so good, Buttons on the front, the screen could be better a little washed out,needs a usb port and maybe a tv tuner to make it really good for traveling...
xvid is not supported, Divx continuous play is not supported?

Summary: My second Philips Portable DVD Player(DCP850). Unlike the previous unit,this one plays DVD from various countries. ( I tested DVDS from Japan, Hong Kong, England, France and USA).(Of course one can enter xxxx code to make it an all region player for DCP850). However, Divx feature is different.
