Summary: I liked this unit for about two hours...then a dead pixel group appeared in the middle of the screen. I checked the web and I should have been forewarned, this is typical of this unit. Therefore, back it goes to Amazon.com. I have not had ONE portable DVD unit from any manufacturer last more than 6 months. I give up on portable DVD.
Summary: For the price and portabilty.................this one is a winner! I travel all the time and simply have an excellent pair of headphones to make my movies just as enjoyable as my home theater system. And yes......it is true that the 7" screen could be a "little" more precise, but the big flic is that this is a PORTABLE machine/aka "toy" to make my travels more comfortable.
Summary: I bought this device last year and was definitely impressed with its capability/features considering its size. Here are some things that future buyers might take into consideration: (1) The speakers are not that good (I have to use a separate headphones with it) (2) try to check out what is Pioneers warranty regarding dead pixels (3) check out your other devices (TV, Audio receivers) connectivity for you might need to buy extra cables to enjoy the Dolby Digital/DTS...
Summary: The LC10 is completely, uterly, hopelessly, rediculously, awesome. It has excellent screen quality, the built in speakers do the job but, I would recomend getting a pair of nice headphones and maybe a headphone jack splitter to use with it. Extra batteries are a little expensive but they're worth it. With my extra battery I can get 7 hours of play time out of my player. The controls are intuitive, and easy to follow.
Summary: DVD player works great but is useless without having two batteries. I can't seem to find where to buy a backup. Do not buy it unless you want to be caught in a long plane flight without a backup battery and your kids are in the middle of a movie.
Summary: I bought the Pioneer PDV-LC10 recently and I love it. The picture is exceptionally clear and the unit is well built. I also love the very thin remote control. I'm not sure why Amazon.com's reviewers said the picture on the unit was not clear. I, along with everyone else that has seen it, think the picture is very impressive. The viewing angle is a little narrow and the speakers aren't very impressive, but as a whole the unit is awesome.
Summary: I purchased this unit last week, and am very happy with it. There is really no downside to the Pioneer given the price. The video resolution may not be as perfect as the Panisonic (my friend owns the 7" Panisonic model), but there is nothing to complain about and I just don't see the need to pay several hundred dollars more.
Summary: I've used my Pioneer portable DVD player a great deal since Ipurchased it on Amazon.com, and have enjoyed it tremendously. It workswell both as a stand-alone player as well as when I hook it up to theTV. It's easy to learn to navigate the buttons and menus, so you'll beable to quickly enjoy all of the features it has to offer. Aftercomparing this model to others on the market, I definitely recommendthis player to anyone who's looking for a portable DVD player.
Summary: ... not to mention a reasonable price. Seriously, I checked out the price here last month and it seems to have dropped by $100 or more. Now is the time to buy if you're looking for a portable DVD player/TV combo. Before purchasing, I had read the reviews here on Amazon and compared them with the highly rated panasonic model. Both players seem to be well thought of by owners. I then checked out a live demo in a local store for both. It was no contest.
Summary: I travel alot and get bored with the very limited cable channels I get in hotels so I decided I needed a portable DVD. I looked at the 7" Panasonic model and the Pioneer PDVLC10. Hands down, the Pioneer spanked the Panasonic model. Setup is user friendly so you can start playing movies right away. The image is clear and crisp and the sound is awesome with headphones or using external speakers. I didn't find the battery and it's docking station heavy at all.
