Summary: I bought one of these in pink from Walmart around Christmas time in 2007 and it has been an excellent purchase. I have two children and it has been through a lot with them. Eventually the lid for the DVD partially broke but I placed a thick piece of paper on top to hold it closed and works just fine. Just recently the cord is starting to short out but I was able to purchase a new one from Walmart for $15. The headphones work just fine.
Summary: Purchased for our teen son. Basic use - not hard on it. It lasted just a few months . . . after that, it would not load or play any DVDs. Cheaply made? Should replace it, but not sure what brands are more reliable in portable DVD players.
Summary: I bought this for a long road trip less than two months ago. It worked great on the trip. We brought it home and sat in on a shelf for about a month. We just went on another road trip and went to turn it on 5 min. into our drive only to find that it would not work!! I want my money back, it only last 1 vacation!!
Summary: Good product. Used with my baby in the car mostly. Stopped working after about a year and half of use. Had hoped to get a little more use out of it, but for less then $100 I got what I paid for. Probably buy a different one this time to see if it'll last longer.
Summary: My family bought 3 of these last year (2007) for Christmas. Their great. My son's is now damaged, but it's his own fault. This thing has withstood the beating from a 5 year old boy who drags it everywhere and uses it everyday. It's been carried by the screen, flopped on the floor hard enough to make the battery pop off (which is quite hard), stepped on, etc.
I love it! It keeps the kids entertained becuase its compatible with the Playstations

Summary: I purchased this prtable DVD player to take on road trips to keep the children from fighting the whole up to New Mexico. The kids and I think its great because its compatible with the Playstation and xbox and I believe the Wii game systems as well. Its pretty cool it comes in a nice package at a great price. Its great for the road!!
Summary: I've been using this DVD player for over a year now and absolutely love it. We take it on every trip and it keeps the kids ocupied. When home my children often use it instead of a TV in their bedroom to watch a cartoon before they fall asleep. The player has never failed, we have never had any problems with it and it's been used A LOT!!!
Summary: Mine did come with a batter - too bad it was the wrong one. The dvd player is pink and the battery is silver and doesn't fit the player at all. I wouldn't care much about the color if it fit. I am going to try to return it for another battery, but I'm not willing to ship the whole thing back over it. Not sure if the remote works or not either because it didn't come with a coin battery like they usually do. That is silver too - instead of pink.
Summary: This product did not come with a battery. A portable DVD player is not truly portable if it does not have a battery. I returned this product because there was no battery included, but the return process was simple and easy.
