Summary: I order a DVP-FX930 at a price of $149.88 from Electronics Expo on Amazon Marketplace. Electronics Expo sends me a DVP-FX950 at a price of $131.98 instead. I look at the price on Amazon Marketplace for Electronics Expo and notice it was $18.10 cheaper. I order item A and they send me item B.
Summary: The FX930 is excellent in most respects except for one big problem... it would not load or play many of my DVD's and would not play-through others (stopping wherever the slightest flaw in the DVD was detected).
Summary: The picture and sound are good, and the player looks terrific because it comes in colors. The fact that the screen can tilt forward and back, left to right, and can be folded back 180 degrees, makes it nice to hold on your lap on a plane. HOWEVER, DO NOT LOSE YOUR REMOTE.
Summary: Be VERY careful when you consider a Sony DVD portable player!!! I bought a Sony DVD portable player less than six months ago. During the past 6 months, I probably played with it for less than 20 times, if not less than 10 times.
Painful joy-stick, viewable area issue and poor longevity

Summary: *****Update*** I had erroneously mentioned that Amazon charged me 20% penalty. Amazon refunded me the full amount. As usual, I have always found dealing with Amazon support to be a pleasant experience. ************** The picture quality is good.
Summary: My experience with the Sony DVP-FX930 9-Inch Portable DVD player is very similar to J. Stranges. We bought this unit on June 5, 2010, used it for a long car trip, and then used it for a few more short car trips, until last week (November 6) when the player all of a sudden would not load DVDs. As Mr.
Summary: Sony DVP-FX930 Portable DVD Player I purchased this DVD player on January 2nd, 2010. It had problems from the start but was persuaded by Sony Support that it was "just static electricity" and told to engage in an elaborate ritual to make it work again.
Summary: Very disappointed in this product. In 1.5 years it has broken down on us 2 times. Initially the parts were covered, but after 1 year parts and labor aren't covered and at 11 months it broke a 2nd time with a different problem. Initial problem was movie would skip or would stop and freeze.
Summary: I bought this in May 2009. The player is actually very easy to use. My daughter is happy to see movies in a car for a long ride. But after 6 months the screen started working funny. Then it finally lost video. I could hear the sound, but no picture at all.
Summary: Have been using for about 6 months. Plays fine on smooth roads but a moderate road bump (PA Turnpike) makes it stop and start the dvd over from the beginning. This has happened many, many times.
