Summary: I am disappointed that my little dvd player has stopped working. Sounds like the motor is stuck after you place the dvd and says that it can't play this disc. I bought it to use on long car rides from LA to San Francisco in January 2005. We used it in the car a few times a year and eventually, when our home dvd player gave out, we used it almost daily. I'd say for the past 2 years it has been our home dvd player.
Summary: and it has never given me any trouble, and it is still going strong. i happened to write this review right now because i am in the market to buy a tv, and was uneasy about the small percentage of negative reviews one always finds. so i remembered the 1-star reviews that gave dire warnings about this portable dvd product, which has always worked perfectly.
Summary: I bought this player for my mom while she was visiting me. We both liked the player very much and were impressed by the quality of display. The sound from the speakers was good too. It s compact and can fit in a hand bag. Easy to carry and light weight. The matte finish added extra elegance.
Bought for camping; use it as a DVD player for my TV

Summary: I bought this DVD player a couple years ago with the intent to use it for camping and road trips. The unit holds a charge long enough to last for roughly two movies of 90-120 minutes length, but it comes with a car power adaptor as well as the standard plug, of course. It has decent sound; you can plug TWO sets of headphones into the side; and with the (included) cord, you can hook it up and use it with your TV like a DVD player - which I do.
Summary: Bought the item about a year and a half ago. Used it in my car during commute for about 6-8 months. Then it sat idle for another 6-8 months. After sitting unused for this span and now inserting a disk, it mysteriously no longer works. Will not read any DVD. Sony quality is apparently awfully low. I suggest searching around for another brand with greater reliability.
Summary: I purchased this over a year ago for my then 3 year old daughter for a road trip. It is great! We use it on every road trip and a fully charged battery will last 5-6 hours. There is also a car adapter for easy power. We do use the lock on the side that keeps children from pressing buttons. We also bought the Sony pink headphones so all are happy in the car! This is a great product, especially for the price!
Summary: Base on my research, this model has a quality problem that is common to many buyers. I recommend against purchasing this product. I bought this unit about a year ago. I saw the bad reviews for quality and should have listened. It worked fine for months, but then would suddenly stop for no reason. A restart would get it going again, but it would frequently just quit. Before the 1-year warranty expired I sent it in.
Summary: My husband and I bought this for our almost two year-old before a long flight to Europe, and it has been GREAT!! The battery lasts over the 5 hours promised (over 6 while on the plane and not plugged into anything), and has taken quite a beating from our toddler. It has been dropped, stepped on, and sat on by our girl, without any trouble at all.
