Excerpt: I LOVE this portable DVD player.. the sound could be a bit louder and I seem to hit the release button on the large flat rechargeable on the bottom of the unit. Aside from that.. I love the sound quality,, the picgture quality and the size of the screen , the way the screen swivels completely around. A favorite feature is that when you shut off the unit, and go back to it later, the player holds your spot.
Excerpt: i wanted a portable dvd player so that my kids could have something to occupy them in the car when we went to visit grandma and grandpa who lived 3 hours away. i looked around for a while then found the sony player and fell in love with it. i love the extra features on the player that are not on other players. it is great being able to put the screen all the way back. the headphone jack is standard 3.5mm.
Good Alternative to having a built in dvd player in the car
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This is our second sony DVD player - our first one was stolen and so we could not live without it. Prior to owning a tv, we used this little dvd player to watch movies on the weekends. We have also taken this portable DVD player with us on long airplane flights. We can usually watch about two and half fulll lenght movies prior to the battery needing a recharge. This is excellent considering we can fly across the country and be fully entertained.
Excerpt: Great DVD player. Long battery life (6 hours), nice screen, easy to use. It comes with a remote control and car adapter as well. The only bad thing is that the volume does not go as loud as I would like it to. I tried to use it in the hospital and couldn't quite hear it (unless using headphones), and it sounds a little tinny too.
Excerpt: We have had a few of the cheap portable DVDs for our kids to use on airplane or car trips, and they have not delivered. This time, we decided to get a name brand DVD player, and see how different things might be. This Sony model did not disappoint, and it was a bargain, too - $149 (no tax, no shipping) from Amazon, before Christmas. My 13-year-old son and his three siblings all gave it a thumbs-up.
Excerpt: We bought this dvd player a few months back and have had a lot of problems with it. I mainly purchased it for my daughter to use in her chariot stroller while I ran and walked with her. The player itself is pretty slick, I like the design and I liked the price. It came with a car charger and little remote (which I found silly!) and was pretty good value for the money. About a month ago it started not being able to read discs.
Excerpt: Sony DVPFX810 portable DVD player I have in black, very stylish. It has an 8inch LCD widescreen sized screen, which is able to swivel 180 degrees. It has a rechargeable battery which has great life I can still use to watch on battery or car adapter for use on the road. It is decently lightweight about 5 or so pounds.
Excerpt: This DVD player produces a great picture with good screen brightness/color/clarity. I am especially impressed with the sound quality. We purchased this to use in the car for grandchildren on long trips. This has extra features such as the swivel screen being able to be adjusted to tilt backwards.
Excerpt: This Sony is a very sturdy portable dvd player. It is built well and really feels it compared to cheaper brands. It plays nicely and I have not had any skipping problems at all. I do have a few other brands like RCA and Venturer and I have to admit that they work well too and I'm not sure the Sony is worth the high price. Our Venturer portable dvd player is a third of the price of the Sony and I'm sure it will last more than a third as long.
Excerpt: I originally purchased an Insignia portable DVD player with an extended warranty. After having to replace this brand twice I opted to upgrade to this Sony Portable DVD player and it has been great. It has help up to a 2 and a 6 year old trying to operate and push buttons. It plays DVDs that the Insignia player would not play and has a great picture. The battery life is decent and it is great for keeping the kids occupied during long trips.
