Summary: We purchased this for road trips with our toddler. Our "Wreck It Ralph" son has attempted to damage this product in every way possible and it just keeps on working. Sound, image quality, and battery life far exceed my expectations given the low price.
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..
"Watch any Foreign Region DVD on your Big Screen TV in your living room"

Summary: According to manufacturer's instructions booklet, this portable DVD, plays NSTC& PAL regions DVDs. It indeed does play PAL after changing the setting to '0' i.e. free region and all the DVDs that were rejected by my Sony DVD player.
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.
Summary: This product is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Something small, convenient, good battery-life and played all regions. Grant it you have to maneuver a little bit to make the "region-free" part a reality, but it truly works nice.
Summary: We bought this product more than 3 years ago and it has survived our twin toddlers all that time! They wrote on the display with crayons, it dropped many times, but this rugged player still faithfully plays our US and foreign DVDs without fail and keeps a great battery life.
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.
Summary: The DVD player is really nice. It is black and white (which is supposed to be the older model...but mine was made only 6 months ago). I read a review and the person said that the all black one fingerprinted really badly...so I am happy that mine is black and white.
