Terrific player value

 

Great screen, easy controls, a fine value overall.

Sound without headphones is fair, battery charging cumbersome.

Terrific player value

 

Anticipating a long plane and car trip to the Southwest, we bought the Initial 5820 from Circuit City based upon the reviews here. We needed to keep our 6-year old son occupied on the long rides, and hope to take more car trips this summer. The more ...

Run - don't walk - away from this DVD!

 

Great screen clarity.

Even at for just $200 I expect it to at least work!

UPDATE JULY 2004 - We used this player extensively on our recent Disney trip (Boston to Orlando and then on to Tampa by car) and it performed exceptionally! Didn't freeze once. Might be better in the hot weather! For a recent drive from Boston to ...

The best bang-for-the-buck portable DVD player PERIOD!

5.8" screen is very crisp.Remote (software) zoom is beautiful.Unbelievable headphone sound!

Battery\Charger poor design integration.Unit (hardware) zoom is weak at best.

I'm Very Impressed - Great Gadget at an Affordable Price!

 

I'll admit that I can be a name-brand snob when it comes to electronics, mostly because I've had my share of experiences with shoddy equipment in the past. That's why I wasn't sure what to expect when my husband and I received the Initial 5820 ...

Fantastic picture and sound quality. Relatively cheap price. Lots of extras and cool features!

No big ones.
