Summary: My former DVD player "died" right in the middle of my Twilight movie...I was desperate! It was close to Christmas and funds were low for me to treat myself to a new player. However, I found this Phillips player at a price I could afford on Amazon and was so happy when I received it...at first, it tended to skip a little, but after running for the length of a movie, I haven't had that problem again. The picture is clear and it's simple to use.
Summary: Have had this for 2 years and it still works fine. Nice picture for a cheap little screen. Durable and easy to use. No complaints. Of course speakers are small - hook it up to Bose surround sound 8 channel and you will be amazed!
It is great for travel, but I would not use everyday at home.

Summary: It is great when I travel. But it is not designed for heavy use at home. So, it will break eventually after heavy use, which mean using every day at home. I think the durability is just for temporary use only. I wish the price is a little cheaper.
Summary: According to previous reviews I was led to believe that with some re-programing I could use DVDs from different regions on this machine,however this seems not to be the case. Have been unable to use any other than US ones. As main criteria for buying this Player was multi region use, experience very disappointing.
Summary: To be clear, Phillips 9" Dvd is a great player. I owned one for 2 years (bought at bombey electronics) and used it every day. When it finally has broken(would not play because lid would not lock anymore) I really wanted to get the same dvd. I found it cheaper at LA Close OUT and made a big mistake ordering it from them. When it arrived, it looked like new, but some key things were faulty.
Summary: We have now purchased "3" of these Philips 9" Portable DVD Players. We gave one to our Daughter for her car to keep our grand-daughter entertained, after they had it for awhile and loved it we purchased one for ourselves. This is a great addition to Road trips and kids can watch their favorite DVD's, learning DVD's and Music DVD's.
Summary: This is my second one. First one bought from buy dig, it was free region and used it for two years. Second one bought from this seller, everything is working fine, but it is not free region as seller discribe. It is sad that we can't watch the DVD which we bought from Asia.
Poor Customer Service after returning it for repairs

Summary: This Phillips 9" portable player PD9000/37 is very good except for the battery life which did not meet the 5 hours stated in the description. After a number of emails with customer service, they were very helpful and I was told to return it at no expense for repair. But after they recieved the device, I have not heard one word from them and I have still not recieved my DVD player. And it has been 2 weeks now since it was returned for repairs.
Summary: I purchased this portable DVD player for my daughter for her birthday! It worked perfectly for about 2 weeks and then would no longer charge! I requested to return the product and was told to do so! After paying $25 of my own money to pack and return the product, I received a call from the company saying that nothing was wrong with the product and that I wasn't using it correctly!
