Summary: Functional, portable, kid and airport friendly. We did not carefully measure battery life, which was adequate, but with 2 kids, wish it was a little longer... I have had this item one month, used for long journey across the pond.
Summary: We really liked this type of a dvd player, both from the battery life to the picture quality, and the ease of running it! Without the remote though the sound is difficult to change when it's in a case...that's only a minor issue! Quality of picture was very good!
Summary: I bought this item refurbished believing it would be like new. It certainly looks new but it doesn't work, won't even come on! I'm very, very annoyed as I need the player in less than 2 weeks.
Summary: Great player. It is wonderful on the airplane. I have Bose headset and it works great. Can take it anywhere in the house and use. Good picture, good sound and easy to use. A 3 hour flight did not exhause the battery.
Summary: Truth is I bought this same portable dvd player at wal-mart, the exact same one and honestly I was pretty excited to buy it since it was much cheaper at Wal-Mart. I figured,its a Phillips model it'll work great! But when I brought it home for my 2 lil kids. It was a disaster. I wanted it something good and long lasting, a dvd player that could handle 2 little kids heavy handling..
Summary: For the investment, this unit does all expected. We subrtacted one star because of two shortcomings. First, the supplied connection wire for TV use is hopelessly short. Second, the base is pulled over backwards when the screen is tilted past about 50 degrees. The sound is meager - but that is the case with some more expensive players. (Earphone sound is fine however.) Considering picture quality and features, this is a fine player for the price at Amazon.
Summary: My wife and I purchased this Philips portable dvd player (pet941D/37) three months ago and we are very satisfied. Great picture, good sound and volume for a small unit. We get about 4 hours of battery life with screen brightness on NORMAL. All the functions work well. The only control that is a little hard to work with is the volume control, small and and hard to manipulate. That is minor compared to all the other great features.
Summary: Overall, this is a competent replacement for my three old Mintek player. See below for pro's and con's. The battery recharge takes 5 hours and device will play for about 4.3 hours. I think thats pretty decent. This review is for the similar model 941A. Pro's Decent 9" screen. Quite sharp for retail movie DVD's. If you were expecting HDTV, look elsewhere. Sound quality was fair. Many remote buttons are duplicated on the player. Plays MP3 CD's.
