Summary: I originally got this for my wife. She and I have both used it and really enjoy it. The picture quality is great. The sound quality is so-so, but acceptable. I've used it outside with Tai Chi DVDs to learn new forms and refresh my memory on old ones. I haven't used it with the battery much, so I can't speak for the battery life. We usually hook it up with the A/C adaptor.
Summary: As I travel for business, I needed a small, light DVD player without too many bells and whistles. This is definitely it. As previous reviews stated, the battery lasts long enough for at least one full lenghth movie and the buttons are easy to use. Also, as previously stated, the volume is a bit weak when used without headphones. But with headphones, it's GREAT. Perfect weight and size for airplane use, as well. I would definitely recommend this model.
Summary: After comparing numerous dvd players and reading many reviews I choose to purchase the PET1002 mainly for my daughter to use on an upcoming car trip. The picture quality is as advertised, not even comparable to a lot of the cheaper 7 inch models, and screen size is nice. She has watched probably 40 movies on it in the last month - thinks it is hers once we came home and made it into her bedroom. No issues as of yet with playing any movies.
Summary: Originally purchased this to keep the toddler quiet during the long flight down from Detroit to the Bahamas, but ended taking it to the restaurants as well as the wedding reception as well. Kept not only our toddler quiet and still, but also my nieces and nephews... and allowed us a peaceful meal. Although the impetus was to entertain the toddler, we knew we would use it as well for bed-time watching so we wanted something high-quality and a usable size screen.
Summary: Vedio display quality is the the best prior to the two other products I have of this kind, Audio is simply superb, I havent seen any noise while playing. Way its priced and the battery like this is one of my best purchases.
Summary: I have had this player less than a week and have no complaints except that the one I recieved from a USA based online vendor will not play any DVDs with the Region 1 coding. These are all legally purchased discs and are clearly marked as Region 1. The player has flawlessly played region-free DVDs, audio CDs, MP3 discs, DVD-R discs made on a Sony DVD recorder with TiVo as the source, and "ripped" versions of DVDs burned as region-free to DVD-R on a desktop computer.
Summary: Knowing nothing about DVD's including what the initials stood for, I relied on an internet search and viewer reviewes of the product. I Personally shopped in-store to see and evaluate some of the products and, finally selected the PET 1002 DVD because it met most of my needs. Service delivery was great, with the product delivered ahead of schedule. Quality of picture excellent. Operation noise miminal.
Summary: Great picture and audio. Excellent battery life. BUT the way the battery attaches to the player is TERRIBLE. The player cannot sit flat with the battery attached. The battery pack seems like it will fall off if the player is not carefully handled. Also, this is not the player to casually slip into your hand luggage for a flight. It is heavy. Finally, if it's important to have a large screen, good image quality and sound, why not spring for a small laptop computer.
