It Kicks A$$


My cousin has this and it is the best thing to bring along on a long plane ride or drive across the country. The picture, while really small, is very clear, and it doesn't seem to skip like CDs do when you hit a bump in the road, though I'm not sure if...

Awesome picture, portable

I don't own one myself

Would you look at what have we got here!!!


You probably already have a DVD player. But if you are not really satisfied with what it can do, check this out. When I first bought this DVD player, that can do a lot more than just DVD. As soon as I plugged it in, of course before that I had such a...

Take It All On The Go; Don't Forget A TV or Glasstron!


Only two weeks ago, I purchased a Sony Glasstron (I have a review posted on it too). I planned to use it for video games, until it hit me... I could watch DVD's wherever I went!

Pricey, but cool!


I bought this baby expecting to get a grainy picture and low quality sound. Boy was I ever wrong! This DVD player is of the highest quality of any portable I have yet seen! The picture is quite clear, and the sound quality rivals that of non...

Portable, lightweight

Dangerous to drive while watching!

No built-in display?!


This player is great if you want to bring it on the road, and set it up in your hotel room or something, but why not spend the same amount of money and buy a player with a built-in display so that you could use it on planes or in the car? This Sony...

Good as second player for home

No built in display
