This Sony replaces my 7" Phillips portable.

Used primarily by my children and also on flights & holidays, 2 key areas of importance for me are battery life and durability. The Sony ticks both boxes giving a true 5-hour battery life and a sturdy well put together frame made from quality material.

I found the image quite detailed, clear and easy to view, sound quality good for the size of the unit and included all the features you would expect on a DVD player

Compared to my old unit and other units I looked at, in today's market, even when put against some much more expensive units the Sony still won the day.

I'm Sure there are some better units out there but I could not find one at this price point.

The unit also features audio & composite video INPUT as well as OUTPUT, 2 x headphone sockets, USB input for memory sticks and card readers as well as a hold button to disable the unit's controls if required. The screen also opens fully flat to the unit (180 deg not 360deg). There is however no S-video or component out/inputs.

The thin battery attaches secularly to the bottom of the unit creating a well-proportioned player that does not feel particularly bulky. Charge time from flat can be up to 5 hours with a battery indicator function to tell you how much charge is left.

The unit comes with a remote control & a car battery adaptor that plugs in to the cigarette lighter socket.

As for formats it will play DVD DVD-RW/-R, DVD+RW/+R, VIDEO CD/MUSIC CD CD-RW/-R, DivX, MP3 and JPEG

After extended use I am very pleased with the unit and would happily recommend it as a cost effective 7" portable DVD player

I bought this to entertain two children on a four hour flight and it was spot on. Of course, the built in speaker is no competition to the noise of an aircraft but the two headphone sockets meant that that was no real problem.

I also used this as a standard DVD player while on holiday and plugged it straight into a 37inch widescreen TV with the supplied leads. The picture / sound quality was superb especially as I was mostly playing .avi files through it. The battery life exceeded the stated maximum when used in this way as the player's own screen was switched off.

I've successfully played +R and -R DVD disks with ISO files and AVIs, standard DVD movies and MP3's on disk. I also plugged my camera's memory stick into the USB port via a USB card reader. The access time between photos was a little slow (couple of seconds) and it couldn't play the movies from my Sony camera but the photo display was excellent.

I looked a few other players (both cheaper and more expensive) before settling on the Sony and after a couple of weeks of using it I'm glad I went for this one.

The DVD player was delivered at 11.00am the morning after ordering at 4.00pm.
The display spec is a little dissapointing but in reality the picture quality is very good. When using head phones as I usually do , on very quiet passages there is a little motor noise created by the DVD unit but to be honest it does not spoil the usage at all. Photo and MP3 playback are great.
As usual Amazon beat all contenders on price.
All in all a great buy and the battery on playback is as good as they claim , the best I have had is 5 hours 38 mins to a charge.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this as a replacement as our previous Toshiba model failed within the 12 month warranty. Being competively priced on Amazon, this Sony model is a wee beauty. Build quality is second to none as you would expect from Sony. The 5 hour battery fits neatly underneath the unit base [unlike other DVD players] and will keep our kids entertained on car or long haul flights. Picture quality is great in all directions, although the speakers are a bit weak on output. Overall, a great portable DVD player.

This is a good machine. I've only had it a day now, so haven't 'rinsed' it yet but the picture is superb - far better than the Phillips I was eyeing in Dixons which was £20 cheaper. It's as good as my front room TV set, no exaggeration.

Payed the extra £20 because the Phillips only had 2 hours playback which I thought was a bit sheeeeite. Sony typically offers 5+ which is more like it, at least two films worth. Downside to this is that the rechargeable battery provided fits under the unit and is the same size as it and bloody heavy. This is the only real negative, it's a relatively weighty carry for the size, but that's what you get for the longer battery I suppose.

In house speaker is very poor but I suspect most would use headphones for such a device so not really an issue for me. It would be very tinny if you intended to watch it hands free.

So far I have only tested it with a few DVD's and as I say pic quality very good. I even tried it with a few copied 'Johnny Vaughan' movies I bought from a bloke on the internet and they played fine too.

Bonus!

I originally bought the Toshiba SDP71S from Amazon, but quickly returned it upon learning that it jumped/skipped with a great many home authored DVD's. The Shinco models looked good, but reading reviews it became apparent that they too struggled with various writeable media. So that left me with one choice as far as I was concerned - Sony - the brand you turn to if you want something to do the job well, and do it for many years without breaking.

The DVPFX720W (W for white) looked a class act the moment I took it from the box. Upon loading a disc I was surprised to notice that despite having the same 480x234 resolution as the Toshiba I had returned, it's display was 1000x better, and also better than the previous portable I had owned, a Bush model. The Sony's clarity, colour and contrast were all FAR superior to any 7inch player I had seen in action - perhaps because of the 12bit video DAC this player uses. The sound from the internal speakers was also better than the models I have used in the past as it utilizes a 96 kHz/24bit audio DAC, but like with any portable player, the small speakers pack relatively little bass...and the sound only ever comes into its own on these machines via the use of headphones - and with headphones, especially good quality ones, the sound is very powerful and bassy. DivX and Xvid playback was a dream - I loaded a DVD-RW with 3 DivX films and 3 Xvid films and the machine quickly loaded all six to allow me to choose which I watched first, and all played through without incident. The unit limits the name of DivX/Xvid files to 14 characters in length, but the Toshiba I returned limited them to only 8 characters...so that was also an improvement on what I'm used to. I then tried the full range of DVD+/-R/RW and all played back without incident...happy days!
