Summary: I have owned 4 portable dvd players, and this was the second one I owned. I ended up giving it away because I was so frustrated at its inability to play DVD's. It was hit or miss. Sometimes it played, but mostly it just spun and spun and spun. But what I really miss about it, now that I have owned two replacements, is that of all the portable DVD players I've owned, this one had by far the best picture quality. I really miss that.
Summary: I bought the Samsung L70 player from Fry's, I think it was about $180, much pricier than other 7" players at the time. But... the clerk talked us into it, claiming that the resolution was better than others. I now have a feeling that he just wanted a higher commission. It worked a few times, then kept resetting when moved. I agree with the other review titled "Portable unless you move it" -- essentially that's the truth.
Summary: This is our second portable DVD player. We purchased a "cheap" one first and had problems you'd expect from a cheap one so we then exchanged it for this model on the salesperson's suggestion. At first all seemed great, but as we used it for the second and third times, issues others have mentioned - the audio is very poor and if it even gets slightly jarred the playback stops - started manifesting themselves.
Summary: I've had this player for over a year now and it's still operating great, especially for the amount of used and traveling it does. I have found it convienent enough to slide into the back of my purse and bring to resturants or doctor's appointments for my 2 year old to entertain herself with. For that alone it's been invaluable. She has also thrown it on the floor a few times with a hard enough impact to knock the battery right off. But surprisingly, it still works fine.
Summary: This Samsung Player exceeded my expectations really. I loved the crystal-clear picture and the sharp sound. It also looks very elegant with the stainless surface and the black cover. It's definitely worth the money.
Summary: Buyer Beware! This portable DVD player was purchased as a present with the purpose of using it while flying on long trips, unfortunately you cannot hear it even with good headphones over the plane noise. I took it to Best Buy today to see if there is something wrong with the unit. The salesman in the tv/dvd department was not surprised by my complaint. He said the Samsungs have a low audio output compared to other models.
Summary: Sound output is terrible, you can't hear it in a car or airplane(with high quality, noise cancelling earphones). When I called customer service they told me it was not intended for use in a car or airplane. Picture is very good, but I have heard better sound from much cheaper players. Don't waste your money.
Summary: Length of Usage: approx 5 months, minimum 1hr/day, 5days/wk Pros: - Extremely light and portable even with battery - LCD great to side viewing for family, adequate screen size - Good color quality, sound quality depends on headphones (I use Coby CV-110, cheap and works well) - Bettery length good for commutes Cons: - Fastforward and rewind, difficult to figure out.
Excerpt: As someone who survived - unscathed - the passages of not one but two hurricanes in the record-setting 2005 hurricane season, one of the worst effects was the boredom and resulting crankiness caused by power outages that lasted several weeks until Florida Power and Light restored service.
