This review is from: Sylvania SDVD1048 Portable DVD Player
Pros: This is really a great device. I was looking 3 specific features in a portable dvd player and this player has all of them.
First, I wanted a 10 inch screen. You may not think there's much of difference between a 9 or 10 inch screen but a 10 inch screen provides a much better viewing experience. Second, I wanted a device that plays movies off of an sd card [because (1) it's easier to carry lots of movies on card vs a bunch of dvd discs and (2) it uses less of the battery when watching off a card vs playing a dvd]. Be careful though, because it doesn't play movies encoded using some of the newer codecs. I used a popular program called handbrake (ver. 9.3 or older - don't use the current version which is 9.6) to rip a dvd to AVI format using the divx codec and it played perfectly. Third, I wanted extended battery life and this has a 5 hour battery which longer than most players. Also, mine came with a carry case, headphone splitter, and car charger. Awesome!
Cons: Can't play movies from SD card that were encoded using more modern codecs. However, as I wrote above, AVI files encoded with divx should be fine.READ FULL REVIEW
