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: 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...
Summary: I received the PET 1030/37 as a Father's Day gift from my family and have used it for five days per week since then, while riding the bus to and from work (about 40 minutes ride each way). So, keep in mind that I am probably harder on a portable DVD player than most people.
