Above and Beyond what I expected

Matthew the Dad, J&R

  • Summary: This product was refurbished and a great price so I took a chance. I definitely feel I made out on the deal as the product is exactly what I was hoping for. Great sound (even without headphones), Hookups for External TV, Sound out(could just add a nice fm transmitter if you want the sound over your radio), Headphones, USB Flash drives and smart cards.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Portable

Excellent Value

  • Summary: I use the player to preview DVDs burned on my laptop and for playback for special events when I travel. The image is bright and has good off-axis viewing. The S-video output is most useful when playing back video for large screen presentations where the video is twelve feet wide or larger. The AV out includes audio and composite video as well. One disadvantage is that there is only one earphone jack so it is harder to share a movie on a flight.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Portable

Works just fine for me

Family lady, J&R

  • Summary: I purchased a refurbished unit. It seems to work just fine, except for a slightly shorter battery life. A full charge will last about 3-3.5 hours, which is just long enough for a plane trip. We have a 2 yr old and have suffered through too many baby screaming flights. Purchasing this portable DVD was the best thing that we could have done for our sanity and those around us.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Lightweight, Portable
  • Cons: Chapter announcement, Short Battery Life

  • Summary: This is a wonderful DVD player for the money. The picture is awesome on it, and the sound is great as well. I bought this for my 2 kids (ages 3 and 1) and my three year old loves it so much he watches it at home instead of the 37 inch plasma. I bought it for travel, and it's so nice b/c it come with everything you need- including a car charger and mounting system for the car. The only thing I wish was a little better is the battery life. Other than that we love it!

Beautiful Picture!

  • Summary: I love the dvd player itself! It kept my 1 year old busy for a bit while we were in the car on our way to grandma's. (a 4 hour drive)I could also put it in a million different positions to see which worked best! There wasn't an angle or position that I couldn't do with it! The only cons I can say are are minor. First the road we drive on (95 through SC) is pretty bumpy and occasionally the screen would start to fall down and we would have to push it back up.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Picture, Good Sound, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Portable
  • Cons: Car mount needs work

High Quality Display - Average function

RKC-RIDER, J&R
12 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this product because of the SD card slot and its ability to display JPEG files reasonably well. With todays use of digital photography we have found we would like to share our pictures from our travels with other people but really don't want to print them all. It is real easy to come home with 200 shots which are nice to look at but only a few are worth having printed to display.
  • Pros: Good Picture, Good Sound, Long Battery Life, Portable
  • Cons: SD Card slot not covered

Mostly good

Vernon the traveler, Beach Audio

  • Summary: This player is _mostly_ good. There are a few things about it that I wish were different. Mostly, I bought it for car video for my kids. They aren't old enough to be able to tell the difference between DVD quality and VCD quality, so the main audience is easy to please. That said, it does have a very nice display. The sound quality is pretty good (considering the tiny speakers). In addition, the sound has a great range from very soft to very loud.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Flip and swivel display, Good display, Quality Construction
  • Cons: Dvd read head is noisy, No power button on remote, Pwr btn in awkward place
