The Portable Pet

Zmugzy, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...passengers occupied during long trips. Philips claims that this will fit any make of car except a Volvo. Apart from standard DVD playback, the PET830 also supports DivX, MPEG 4, MP3, and WMA formats. You can play compressed video files from a DVD or even a USB stick(either DiVX or mobile phone clips). Unlike many DVD players, the Philips has a wider viewing angle and has a sharp 8.5in screen. The screen does seem to be of a good quality and the image ...
  • Pros: Useful if you really need one

  • Excerpt: I grew tired of looking for a dvd player, reading as many reviews as possible and still not coming up with any answers. I bought this particular one having read a review on this site from someone who bought this model express delivery to use on a flight next day. We were also going to fly next day with our young daughter.

  • Excerpt: This is an amazing portable DVD player. I dont have any problems with the screen resolution as its been fine with most of my DivX avi files that i have played on it. I was looking for more information on PET 830 and PET 831 and both of them are of the exact specification except that PET830 has a USB port and the PET831 has an SD/MMC slot. If you want both of them, go for the PET1030 or the PET1031 models.

  • Excerpt: This is our second Philips PET830/05. Both bought from Amazon. Unfortunately our first 2nd was bought from Pixmania as it was cheaper than Amazon. The product arrived and was a PET830/00 which doesnt play UK region DVDs, so it was useless. Returned the product and similar to another review (which Ive only just seen) they havent returned the postage fee, no refund to date and dont reply to any correspondence. You cant get through on the phone either.

  • Excerpt: I wanted a portable DVD player for my child for a 10 car journey. I am no techieand therefore reviewed peoples comments on here before deciding to purchase this. I was not disappointed. It looks good, the picture is perfectly good for viewing in the car, its easy to fix in the car,in fact my only negative comment would be that without using headphones (3 year old refused to wear them), the sound could be better, although my child was perfectly happy.

  • Excerpt: Im just an average joe so Im not going to go into speeds and feeds, I bought the above and think its looks the business. Its light, fits on the back head rest and comes with everything you could need. In short if your looking for a good buy then this is a safe bet.

  • Excerpt: This relatively cheap player will suit those who want to keep the kids quiet in the back of the car. The USB port also gives you the option of inputting your own recordings etc. However, picture quality is not the greatest, despite the anti-reflection screen for in-car use. Sound is average, and as with most items in this price range, is much better through earphones than through the integral, rather tinny speakers.

  • Excerpt: "This is a good quality product that offers good value for money in the short term. Although as with most electronic products, the value will deteriorate over time and should be anle to get a cheaper version next year. It incorporates most of the latest features and technology that is currently available on the market. After using this product for a few months I have not so far come up against any reliability issues but only time will tell. I therefore ...

OUR PET KEEPS THE KIDS QUIET

CaptainCo..., Ciao
9 July 2007
  • Excerpt: "...screens. This resulted in two Philips PET830 portable DVD players being bought from an online store for £169.99 each. Justifying such expenditure was easy for reasons I will explain in detail. The players are very light (just shy of 1kg) and can be carried around by children with confidence. They won't cause them to start moaning about their arms aching after a few minutes and thanks to a great design feature the screen hooks onto the back of ...
  • Pros: Excellent playback and sound quality, really portable, long battery life, supports lots of formats
  • Cons: The price and the really small remote control

E' una "TV" per chi ha bambini e viaggia.

  • Summary: Secondo me è una tv che portatile che serve a diverse funzioni, ad esempio per attaccarci una consolle tramite il cavetto video, guardarci dei video scaricati tramite chiavetta usb. La comodità stà nel poterla utilizzare in viaggio sia in macchina, camper, roulotte, camion, attaccandola alla presa accendisigari del mezzo di trasporto.
  • Pros: AUDIO E VIDEO
  • Cons: TASTI TOUCH SCREEN CHE SI FA FATICA AD AZIONARLI
