Excerpt: My sister has one of these and she let mew borrow it for a while because me and my husband were on our trip. And the kids sometimes needs something to watch like cartoons and stuff for them to stay put.
Excerpt: I really like this Sony DVD player. It’s perfect for taking on trips, because it’s lightweight and easy to transport. I like that it plays more than DVD’s, too: it also plays CD’s and MP3’s, so it’s also a portable music player.
Summary: Bought this DVD player about a year ago after one died that we had for 6 years. This one worked fine until it recently died on me. There are some problems with the design though, the line in switch easily gets hit and switched. When this happens it won't power on. Hard for my 7 year old to figure this out. The screen looked good for about 6 months, then is showed wear and tear, it seemed to rub on the inside and left a permanent mark on the screen.
Summary: Exceptional Product! I love the functionality of the screen, as you can move it from side to side to change your viewing angle. Easy to use, durable and functional. My 9 year old takes it everywhere! Great value for the price. As usual, Sony products are second to none.
Summary: We've been using this as a video or audio source for presentations (showing short videos) and short live events (rallies). It's worked very well. I'll start with negative aspects, then positive ones.
Negatives: The battery has lasted only a year before its lifespan has decreased drastically. This is not a problem for us, because we always have mains power available.
The screen is hard to see in sunlight.
Summary: Be VERY careful when you consider this product!!!
I bought a this Sony product less than six months ago.
During the past six months, I probably played with it for less than 20 times, if not less than 10 times.
A few weeks ago, it started to have problem: When a movie is played, the sound can be heard, but the picture is not shown on the screen.
I checked the warranty and found it only covers only 90 days on parts and 1 year on labor!
Summary: I bought the Sony fx820 in May 2009. I waited to write a review until I had used it for a while. I have been pleased. The sound is not a problem to me, with or without headphones. The picture is great. The battery does not seem to last as long as advertised, but watching one dvd at a time, the battery has never died while I was using the player.
I bought it so I could watch movies at night in the summer and not have to stay in the house on warm sumer nights.
