Sony DVP-FX810 portable DVD player Review and Prices


With the DVP-FX810, Sony has produced one of the better-quality budget portable DVD players. The overall construction of the DVP-FX810 feels more solid than many other low-price models, and we're not just talking about products from no-name brands. The...

Long battery life, solid construction, neat swivel-screen design

Affected by screen glare in bright rooms or outside in sunlight, a little heavy

Sony is no stranger to quality electronics. Sony's DVPFX810 portable DVD player is one of the lightest, smallest portable DVD players on the market.

Critics like the sleek and easy design with dual headphone jacks, but found the screen to have some glare. Users liked the swivel screen and found the battery, while a bit bulky, sufficient for long trips. Many claimed more than 5 hours of continual...

If this was noit a gift, I would returned it right away. There is no way after this experience that I will buy a Sony DVD player again. I suggest everyone just stick with Panasonic.

Portable and good size screen

I read all of these reviews and am amazed that no one mentions how much the item freezes up. If I use it for more than 2 hours, the DVDs freeze up and will not play anymore. I have to turn the unit off and let it rest. The volume sucks too

I just bought it a yesterday and was almost impressed until I realized that there is no volume control on the remote control, which i think is very important.

Good design, Swivel Screen, Double Remote Sensor, Long Battery Life

No Volume Control on the Remote. Should have memory card slot and case included

When we first bought this portable player, we bought the warranty. Good thing. Within a few months, regular jostling in a couple of car trips and the laser DVD reader wouldn't move correctly anymore. DVDs would just freeze. You could get it restarted...

size, ease of use, picture okay

broke twice, bad sound

Received 2 orders from Sony, one by mistake. Was billed twice for the same product. First product didn't play DVDs. Returned with authorization to SONY. Instead of crediting my account they sent me a THIRD DVD player. Received run around for 3 weeks...
