Great DivX player!

Rupe, Amazon
5 March 2008
  • Summary: This is GREAT DivX player. Phillips seem to be the best at this. Yes it is a little noisy at startup but this is because it is reading COMPRESSED files (DivX format and Mpeg4) and is normal and goes away once the movie starts.

Junk

V. Condon "Just Browsing", Amazon
22 August 2007
  • Summary: It broke in 5 months. Skips, and then stops and starts. It was never dropped, in fact, it was seldom moved. It just wore out. Used about 5 hours a week for 5 months, so after about 100 hours it failed. As some have mentioned it is loud, but that never bothered me.

Wonderful idea - Buy from another company

Chris Smith, Amazon
13 August 2007
  • Summary: The Good: Portable DVD players are absolutely wonderful. Finally a product that my retired mother can operate. A DVD player without a million buttons actually gets used. Screen is bright. Controls are simple. You can choose the aspect ratio if you want, but that doesn't complicate normal operation.

Great Portable DVD Player

Ilana Eisenhart "Gingbud", Amazon
14 July 2007
  • Summary: We bought this DVD player for my 2 1/2 year old daughter to keep her busy during a 4 1/2 hr drive. We now use it for shorter drives as well and in the house. We haven't used the battery yet so I'm not sure exactly how long it lasts. We've used the plug in the house and the adaptor in the car.

A Philips vs. Panasonic shoot-out---the winner is?

K. Skoog "skoogman", Amazon
4 July 2007
  • Summary: I have a Panasonic LX-8 that costed me nearly twice the price of the Philips unit. The Panasonic has been showing its age so I tried to save some money and got this little Philips unit. So how does it compare to its bigger Asian brother, you ask?

Great DVD player!

A. T. Martin, Amazon
9 May 2007
  • Summary: The most wonderful thing about this DVD player is the fact the battery lasts for 6 hours. That's a rarity. The screen is crystal clear and the audio is great. I love this DVD player and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Pretty Good Little Unit

GEOFFREY LEGALLAIS "Nomad913", Amazon
15 April 2007
  • Summary: Not a bad little unit. I read some reviews stating how it was sort of noisy but I kind of expected that anyway. If you're wearing headphones or have external speakers jacked in it's not an issue. All in all I'm happy with the picture and the performance.
