Summary: Nice looking DVD player with large 10inch screen. We purchased this unit because it was the biggest screen available and it comes with a car mount kit. The first trip we took we found that the included car mount kit does not work.
Summary: I owned about 3 portable DVD Players Before, and none of then get close to this one. I really like the picture quality, the USB Port, SD Card slot, and the screen size. I recomended to anyone to own one.
Great Player for Lots of Different Media and Usage Options

Summary: This is my second Phillips Portable DVD Player I have purchased. The last one had a built-in dock for an ipod. I use this player all the time but mainly while traveling (Camping, Car Trips Etc.) . I'm a media heavy person so any player I use is going to be tested to it's limits.
Summary: DVD has great picture/sound. Do not like the remote - cannot turn the unit on with the remote. The car mount kit sucks. It is cheap and does not hold the DVD player when the vehicle moves. Everytime you make a turn, it falls.
Summary: I've had my player for a little more than a year now, and I use it constantly. Other than the memory slot not ejecting cards, everything else performs just as well as it did when I first got it. There has not even been any noticeable drop in battery life. I watch my player about 20 hour a week.
Pros: This unit will play almost anything. DVDs, CDs, memory cards and flash drives. It also recognizes most formats. I use it to catch up on my favorite shows (I work nights) while playing on the computer and take it anywhere with me.
Cons: I have to agree with the cons of other reviewers. The controls on screen cannot be seen in the dark, there's no was to bookmark anything other than a retail DVD, no time/length or battery life indicator, and the memory card slot only auto eject only worked for about a month as it is directly over...
Summary: This unit came in handy when we used it on a road trip for our 2 year old daughter. It kept her occupied the whole trip. The car kit was very easy to set-up. Mounting and removal of the unit from the car kit was a breeze.
Summary: After doing an extensive search for the best player according to my budget, I finally realized the Philips PET1030 player was the best choice. I have lots of DIVX videos with subtitles and it played them by the first time without problem.
Summary: I bought the Philips PET 1030 player in December 2007 to keep my son & wife occupied during a long days drive to Atlanta from New Jersey. The player was excellent and my son enjoyed all the movies he had got for the trip.
Summary: Pros: Excellent picture quality, great user interface Cons: No hole for a security lock to prevent theft The Philips PET1030 is a great playback device for both video and images. You can use a variety of media video DVDs audio CDs USB memory sticks SD cards and even feed a signal from another source...
