Portable DVD player with 7-inch screen and stylish blue textured cover

Top Positive Review

I am an iPod addict, but I also own a number of old cds that I enjoy listening to. I didn’t want to duplicate my purchases by adding many of these cds to my iPod library, so I decided to buy a portable cd player. A student of mine suggested that if all I wanted to do is listen to my cds, I should consider a dvd/cd player instead of a walkman or the like. He said the cost would be similar, and the dvd/cd player would afford me the option of watching dvds.

I’m glad I took his advice. This Sony unit meets my needs. It plays my old cds with no problems, and if a family member wants to watch a dvd on a long car trip, we now have that option as well. The unit is easy to use and very solidly made. The volume is adequate: it probably wouldn’t satisfy folks who want to fill a room or car with high-quality sound, but it’s more than adequate if you just want to listen to tunes as you drive or work. The controls are clear and intuitive.Battery life is reasonable; the unit runs a little over two hours when playing dvds, and longer with cds. It recharges quickly. The screen display is sharp, and the colors are bright.

My only two regrets are relatively minor, but they are enough to give this player 4 stars instead of 5.

First, unlike my iPods, it seems you can’t recharge the Sony and use the player at the same time. The power switch must be in the “off” position if you use the car charger or ac charger. Second, you need to keep the lid up, even if you are listening to cds don’t need to watch the screen display. The speakers are located at the bottom of the screen, so if the lid is closed, the volume and quality of the sound are affected.

For the money, I think this is a great little player, and I’m satisfied with my purchase.

Top Critical Review

The first one of these I owned lasted a little over a year, but since I’m an insomniac and use these things as sleeping aids they’re usually on all night every night, so I figured c. 3,000 hours was not a bad life. The new one, however, has lasted less than three months — and that’s unacceptable. It’s making clickety noises and giving me the old “Cannot Play this Disc” routine on every disc, and cleaning the laser lens doesn’t help. ZERO STARS on this one — very disappointed. Just don’t know what alternative there might be…

Customer Questions & Answers

Can I play .VOB format file using this?
Answer: No it just plays regular dvds and music cds, it is a very nice little dvd player.

How long is the cord if you plug it in the wall. Does it need accessories to do this?
Answer:

You cannot plug the unit into the wall and “run it” using an outlet. It comes with cables to recharge the batteries in the unit in your home or car, but you can’t play it while it is recharging. The car cable is only a couple feet long; the cable to recharge in the house is a little over three feet long. It’s important??

Can it play videos from region 2
Answer: I have no idea what Region 2 is – all I can tell you is it was one of the best gifts to myself I’ve ever purchased. I love it!

Is there a built in speaker…or do you have to use headphones or an external speaker?
Answer: It has a built in speaker. It sounds fine to me. And it has a pretty good volume control. I use this for my son to watch DVDs. I also use it to play his bedtime music CD when we are out of town.

Can it play DVD from Region 3 ??
Answer: Can’t say for sure, but I doubt it — if it could, Sony would probably include that in the product specs. You might try calling their tech support people.
