Summary: I bought this DVD player for my 2 year old grand daughter for Christmas 2010. I bought the extended warranty thinking that if she broke it, I could get a replacement. She is almost 5 now and this thing can't be broken! Not only has it been indestructible, but the picture quality has been excellent.
Bad Quality, but if you don't have a lemon, it's good

Summary: I've now been through THREE Sony DVD Players (Two of this model and one of another), BOTH of which suddenly started giving me the "No Disk" error. The DVP-FX950 I bought just about a week and half ago started giving me the same problem, after playing less than 4 DVDs!!
Summary: The first one arrived packed with a layer of foam between the screen and the main body; I unpacked everything, plugged it in to charge, and closed the lid. The next day there was no way to open it - I even had a tech at SONY examine one from their stock room to see if there was some weird trick or...
Summary: I do not have a DVP-FX950, but have ordered the recently-released DVP-FX970 from Amazon on 4/11/2011. Not in stock at Amazon yet, but they say 3-5 weeks (I anticipate better timing than that because other reputable retailers like B&H say that they have the FX970 in stock).
Summary: The screen clarity was great. The touch buttons were too 'touchy' if you like that. And the reason i returned it was of the loud motor. Why spend all this money for an almost perfect product and have to turn up the volume? It defeats the purpose to have one. DON'T BUY IT.
Summary: I do not believe in posting a review until a few months after using the product. With that said, my 4year old daughter has been using this unit and thus far, it is exceptional in picture quality, sound, and just as importantly, battery life.
Summary: After our Samsung portable DVD player stopped working, I did a lot of research before buying the Sony DVP-FX950 player. Please note that I bought a refurbished unit, which does impact the product. We have 2 young children who are perfectly capable of running the machine.
Summary: The DVD player arrived and we were excited to use it...after charging it of course. After a 24 hr. charge, the battery only charged 1/3 of the way. The manual said that it doesn't always charge fully if it is a first charge or the item had been sitting for a while and suggests that the user use the...
Summary: I really hate to give a three star review for this dvd player because initially, we loved it. It worked perfectly for us. The screen is a great size and long car trips with the kids were a breeze while this thing worked.
