Summary: this thing is so cool...ive been seeing portable dvd players for a long time but never really thought they were worth it...you never really know how handy it is until you actually buy it....the biggest thing for me being i dont have to pull out the laptop just for a dvd anymore...very nice
Summary: Bought this to take to the gym while I do cardio. Has a great feature too: turn it off and it resumes playing where you left off next time you power it up! Works great, battery lasts for a long time.
Summary: I bought this player as a gift for my husband, who is a security guard. He spends long hours in a guard shack and likes to have some small entertainment. I got this for his birthday and he is very happy with it. Its small, and easy for him to carry back and forth to work.
Summary: Why not.Philips is usually very good about region free access...unlike some other companies...:) to make your PET 741B Region FREE: 1. Power ON the DVD player without a DISC inside 2. press Setup> go to Prefences 3. Press: next>, previus<, next>, previus<, next>, next>, previus<. 4.
Summary: This worked wonderfully for my 8 year old and our long 14 hour car ride. Only problem I have is that it was sent from the dist without the car adaptor and it was a very difficult process getting it resolved.
Summary: I purchased this item to use in my basement, which happens to be my workout area. I am also currently on a budget, and for roughly $60 this is a great item! I use it to play a variety of DVD's like the P90X series of workouts, Tae-Bo, etc.
Summary: I bought these for myself and my mother to use to watch courses from the Learning Company and for that purpose they work just great. There is a model that also has digital TV included and had I known of that before buying this would likely have gone that route.
