Good Portable Player 7/8/2009 2:42:05 PM

Pros: The DVD works wonderfully. We mainly bought for our child to watch on the road and it fits the bill fine. It stays running through a movie and then some. It even plays well plugged into the old TV.

Cons: You cannot set the output aspect ratio. The output connections are limited, but it is not HD so not really a problem.

Overall Review: It has wonderful resolution for a portable player. I have not used the iPod functions yet, wish I had one of the 120GB Classics to try it out.

i own this but got it as a present 3/29/2009 6:33:39 PM

Pros: great actually hooks up to my dslr great for this to view at least the exposure. my 2 year old loves this to watch movies.

Cons: trying to figure out a way to mount this in my car. all the holders ive searched hundereds of sites...still nothing that holding this non-clamshell in the car. Philips supplies a car adapter for should be able to be temporarily mounted in a car without being on my childs lap

Overall Review: i would like to find a car mount for this....since philips eliminated or forgot about the car mounting of it.

Pros: I love it. Does everything that I expected and more. Picture is very good and it looks like a mini flat screen T.V. Very good quality

Cons: It would be nice to be able to control volume with the remote control. I am constantly adjusting the volume while watching a movie. Works great with my iPod Nano but you can not view the pictures that are on my iPod.

Overall Review: Bought it as a open box from NewEgg. When it arrived I was suprised to find out it was brand new and never had been used.

So close, yet so far away 1/11/2009 9:35:43 AM

Pros: iPod dock
SD/MMC (this is a huge plus)
AV in and out
2 Headphone jacks
iPod dock holds the remote when not using (this is actually really clever)

Cons: A screen so terrible it defies explanation
Flat instead of clam shell design (my screen is already showing wear)
Back loading DVD
Limited file formats

Overall Review: We purchased this player when our existing player died on a long road trip with the kids. While it was the iPod dock that initially drew me (my wife has a Nano) it is really the SD/MMC that is the big plus. We now have 4 8G SDHC cards with our kids shows on them and it works fantastic. No more scratched or bulky DVDs. This is such a big plus. We have had to do some playing around to finally get the videos in the correct format. Like most players it cannot take anything outside of resolution (which is really limited). Still, once we got a functional solution things have mostly purred along.

However, to get to the bad part. You cannot imagine how bad this screen is unless you see it for yourself. I could almost fill the entire 1000 words with my vitrol over the screen. This product is so close with iPod and SD and then it trips over the finish line.

Given the screen I would not recommend this product to anyone.
