Summary: Going on holiday a few times a day I decided to pick up this Sony Portable for a bit of fun on the plane. Managing to get it for under £100 I was pretty happy. The battery was said to be good and with the spec stating 5 hours that was enough to get me to my destination on the plane. You can always buy a spare battery and carry that about with you if 5 hours is enough for you. They are thin enough not to take up a lot of space.
Pros: Screen/Battery/ Ability to play divx off discs as well as jpgs/mp3.
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. The instructions are a little on the complex side but even the most elderly owner will be able to grasp what they are aiming at. The price is the only thing ...
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.
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.
Summary: The delivery of this product was amazing - next day delivery even through the heavy snow, I wasn't even venturing out. Arrived at 9:30 am the next morning brilliant service. Very happy with the DVD player - only issue found to date is that it is prone to the occasional freezing. Not sure if this issue is with the dvd player or if it was the 24 series that I was watching.. Apart from that very happy.
Summary: I bought this player to entertain my young daughter in the back seat of a car and it does just that. It's easy to use and the controls can be locked so that prying hands won't work. the remote control is very handy as well. No need to reach back to start/stop DVD's. It does need a case to make it mount in a car but these are quite cheap and double as a very handy carry case for the player and DVD's. All in all well worth the money.
