Summary: I have been using this machine for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with it. It is attractive and neat, though quite heavy to carry. My main use is to play French films (using headphones) that my partner doesn't care for and it is amazing how quickly one adjusts to the smaller screen. The quality of the picture is excellent and the controls easy to use. I can imagine it having all kinds of functions in a family environment.
Summary: This is a good looking DVD player that we bought for our 8 year old son for car journeys. I don't think the battery ever lasted the 5 hours but there is a car charger and home plug charger so this has never been as issue for us. It does last a good few hours. One downside is the sound quality, most of the time we have to have the sound quality turned upto the highest level. Finally no straps ect for attaching to seats of car.
Excerpt: "I found this dvd player very easy and versatile to use. It is very easy to turn on and allows the user to easily choose which av format is required. It is sleek and stylish and will look good in any h9ome rangine from medium to small. Its durable and the remote control operation is very simple.

Excerpt: "In my opinion, the Sony DVPFX720 is a great dvd player, the sound level is really good, it is also lightweight which is wonderful! and I can hook my mp3 to it. The picture play back is really good, it is very easy to use and as long as it is taken care of it will last a very long time, it is easy to install because there is not very much to do to it. I would have actually preferred to have bought it in another color but it will do,( I don't think ...
Pros: Plays music, and It has photo playback .
Cons: This does not have any disadvantages that I can think of .
Summary: This Sony DVD player is great value for money. It was bought for travelling in the car and on planes, so the long(ish) battery life is a real boon. We've not managed the claimed 5 hrs yet, but we do tend to plug in larger than average headphones. The player has superb build quality with all the switches and controls feeling like they'll last for ages. The screen image is lively and perfect for viewing at close range.

Summary: We bought this for our daughter and found that we are using it ourselves as well. We usually watched DVD's on our computer as we don't have a TV. In comparison, this portable DVD loads very quickly. We were also impressed by the compact size, battery lifetime and open-and-shut mechanism. A pleasant surprise was that we could use it to listen to CDs. The main disadvantages are that the screen is very small, and that navigating the menus on the DVD can be a bit cumbersome.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter to replace a well used, robust and reliable previous model Sony portable DVD that finally gave up the ghost. This new model is slightly smaller, lighter with same high build quality but superior excellent picture quality. The controls are all on the the base part of the unit rather than continuing onto the screen section, very straight forward and user friendly.
Versatile player, superb, bright picture. Plays AVIs straight away.

Summary: This player is just what I needed to amuse me on commutes and in the hotel when I'm away from home with work. It's compact, light and saves having to lug the laptop if I want to watch a movie away from home. The picture is superb, with great colour and clarity. The sound is good with headphones but the speakers are rather tinny, as you would expect with such a small unit. The player will play my AVI files as long as they're first burned onto a DVD.
