I was considering buying the Sony 9" portable dvd but after absurd amounts of browsing reviews online, decided to buy the Toshiba. I made the right choice, this is an excellent price (about half the cost of a Sony model), the battery life is amazing (it really does go for about 5+ hours) and it has played all the discs I have put in it so far. Screen resolution looks wonderful, rich, clear and sharp with true colours, the sound is ok (it is never loud on portables) but best enjoyed with headphones. The swivel screen is a great feature, I have found it invaluable in adjusting the screen for the least screen glare in the daytime. The remote and the units contol buttons have all worked faultlessly.
We are a 1 tv household and I don't know how I managed without this product, when my older sons are hogging the tv, myself or my toddler can curl up and watch a movie! I intend to take this on holiday to make the flight easier for my smallest son and intend to try it in the car with the help of a headrest bag.
It might help you to know that this comes without any kind of bag and if you want this for the car, there is no way to mount it. I bought the Hama Large DVD Player Bag for Car Storage to solve these problems - it fits the Toshiba perfectly, is good value and has 4 very long straps for mounting it on the back of, or between, the cars seats.
