Summary: Good product for the price. The screen image was good, not great. The battery life was decent, good enough to watch 2 movies during our flight from Chicago to LA. It worked good and seemed rugged. However, just after 1 year, it died. It would read the disc. I tried everything to got it to work, but no luck.
Summary: we bought this dvd player for our baby while he was hospitalized. we have had no problems with it. works great. while other reviewers complain about resolution, initial start-up noise, etc, we have no complaints. since the player was purchased with children in mind, these are no issues to us. i personally don't find the start-up noise that loud. the same as any other dvd player starting. my 16yr old (high-tech teen) thinks the resolution is fine.
Summary: I did a lot of research before making this purchase. For the money, this is the best! I bought mine on sale for just over $100. It is very sturdy, and nice looking. More importantly, the screen image is sharp and clear. It also has very loud speakers- a feature that many other DVD players in higher price ranges don't. I wanted something with a longer battery life, but to get more than 4 hours, it is very pricey. This one tested out at 3.75 hours.
Summary: It is very sad to see that after just three and four usage of the DVD player. It has stopped working. I have charged the battery but nothing is comming on the screen. It is dead. I have gone through all the manual and nothing is mentioned there also I have been dupped.
Summary: This is the first portable DVD player I've owned or used. Have enjoyed its use. However, I find that the sound quality isn't great; in particular the volume at its maximum isn't terribly loud. Soft dialogue is sometimes hard to hear. Would recommend ear phones.
Summary: Well priced product with good spec. No reliability problems, looks good and works well. I bought the US version whilst on a trip to New York, saving 50% of the UK price and the spec is better than the UK version (which doesnt play DivX althought the Euro one does) It is easy to make it region free ( do an online search for a crack) and it is switchable PAL / NTSC so I can play any disc on it and also hook it up to most TVs.
Summary: I absolutely love this DVD player because it plays MPEG format and it can read all types of disks (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW.) I transfer all my television programs from my TIVO to my PC and then burn them as MPEG files onto a re-writable DVD. Then means that when I am done watching my shows I can erase the disk and re-record it. I am able to fit between 3 and 5 hours of programing onto each DVD. The picture quality is great and the battery life is also very good.
Summary: Great DVD player. Bought a non-branded machine 1-year previously at Best Buy for $100 that promptly expired as soon as the warranty ended. For almost the same price the Philips DVD is in a different league altogether. Looks sleek and stylish, bright, crisp display, no skipping or jumping, excellent sound, robust and sturdy, long battery life - what else is there?
Summary: Were I to start all over again, I should have seen these little guys in person first. 7" screen is too small, 1/3 of the lifting panel with screen is the speaker, delivering fine sound but taking up valuable real estate. Other than that, picture quality is excellent even in daylight and it works just fine. Huge benefit is 2 headphone ports, keeping peace in the car--if only they agreed on the movie!
Summary: This has the clearest picture I have seen on anything in a long time. My grand daughter watches Cinderella III and Swan Lake Barbie on it and they really come to life. The only complaint I have is that when the dvd loads it makes an noise but it doesnt have any other problems and that is probably just part of the whole loading process.
