Sony DVP-FX820 Portable DVD Player

 

This Sony has an 8-inch swiveling screen that's hinged like a laptop but then can be turned and folded flat for better viewing. That, coupled with its conveniently located controls, helped it to earn its second-place title. To boot, the Sony also had...

DVP-FX930

 

After doing a few days of research and compairisons, it was obvious that for a portable dvd player, Sony has as close to perfection as you can get, but they need to make a car mounting clamshell and newegg needs to list the 930 model. People that...

This is review of the next larger model of this series, swivel fold down screen, max volume is very loud with a little bass distortion at the highest 2 settings in durring loud scenes, high resolution, screen (800x480) has high response time/refresh...

no flash memory slot/port, no support of mpeg, avi, or .wmv, etc., no car mounting kit fits this device, no holes, lips, hinges, edges on the device whatsoever, it's like a bar of soap, but I did make a flat car mount kit work by custom drilling holes...

Great DVD Player, great price

 

It's designed for portability, not features, but it would be nice to have upscaling with HDMI output so it can be used as a stand alone when I'm not traveling.

This is a great DVD player, definitely worth what I paid for. Crystal clear screen, high quality speakers. Easy to use. What more could you want

Great product

 

"I wanted a portable DVD player for my sewing room. I looked at many brands and finally read a consumer report and this model was the highest rated for dependability, picture quality and battery life. All others seemed to quit working after 3 months...

Battery really lasts for 5.5 hours

 

"I am thrilled with the battery life. This DVD player saved me on a recent flight from Rome to the East Coast, USA. The only thing I don't like is that the outer shell is not as sturdy as it should be. My player slid into the back, hard plastic of the...

long battery life, great picture

shell is not very strong
