This is a great little player from a trusted brand. Easy to use, compact with a great picture and good sound from such a small device. Buying this allowed us to have a family holiday, it kept my son quiet for a four hr flight- we then used the player every night connected to the hotel room's tv. The ONLY downside, it doesn't charge whilst being watched, so had to remember to re-charge every night. Would highly recommend- my last player some unknown brand was useless and came with lots of features I neither wanted, or used, in addition it left all my dvd's scratched- no such problem with this SONY player though.
