Cool Toy - and Not Just for Boys


Like any other electronic, it has it's quirks, but overall, a great toy. My husband bought this for me as an early Christmas gift. I really was not expecting a portable DVD player to have this great of quality, but Philips has nailed it. The ...

It played for 50 hours before failing to read the disks, any disks

Good screen size and picture, easy operation, sensible controls

The battery is technologically Neanderthal ; other problems are minor

Great portable player with tons of flexibility


I was looking for a portable DVD player with a larger screen than the usual 7". There are not that many players out there with 10" screens. Of the ones I uncovered in my research, either the reviews were mediocre, the machine was discontinued, the...

Sharp picture, flexible formats and outputs, reasonable price

Menus are mostly driven by remote. If you don't have it you're stuck.
