Sony DVP-FX730 7-inch portable DVD player review

 

The Sony DVP-FX730 proves a quality portable DVD player, which also supports USB sticks.

Good picture quality, sound and build, decent five hour battery life plus car adaptor, fully featured remote, support for DivX AVI files, 16:9 widescreen support, two built-in headphone jacks, A/V output for TV

Expensive, On/Off switch isn't the best, picture quality can occasionally look soft

The Sony DVP-FX730 is an impressive portable DVD player, solid and stylish, picture and sound quality is good, the ability to play a selection of formats from DVD and USB excellent. A reliable five hour battery life should also ensure those long...

DON'T BUY THIS DVD PLAYER!!!

 

You can watch DVD's in the widescreen option, but you have to set it to widescreen every time you put a new DVD in. Can only reverse during a scene with the remote. I use this at my health club and love it! Crystal clear picture, easy to use controls...

Crisp picture, easy to use ;

Button to change to widescreen is too small ;
