Not the one shown on website

 

I ordered this online based on the photo and was excited until it came and saw that the FX980 *DOES NOT* have the swivel head as shown on the photo and is exactly the same control set up as the cheaper FX780. Poor customer service too because to return...

Quick shipping

False advertising on website

The best we've ever owned!

 

We've owned a few portable DVD players and so far this is the best we've had. The picture is great and the volume is the loudest I've ever heard on a portable player. We drive across country a couple of times a year and sometimes I let my child watch...

Volume is loud

No endurance

 

Although I bought this product 2 years ago, I've only used it occasionally. Thus, I didn't expect it to give up the ghost so quickly and so abruptly, It looks nice enough, and the design is reasonably intuitive, but I have no sense they're built to last.

Not DVD in Picture

 

This is NOT a swivel screen DVD. The picture on item is not what you get! the 980 is bulky and does not swivel. The picture is of the 930 (which I owned before and loved!) Sony needs to change the picture!

Not right product
