This Dvd player is fantastic. the screen size is small but so detailed. itcan play any dvd from any country in the world, would definatelyrecommend. compared to most prices this is very reasonable.
Mostportable dvd players will only play Region 2 Dvds and thats all. Thisplayer will also play vcd's, cd's, mp3's. its great to take anywhereespecially for your kids.
It looks great too, with loads of features, you can even connect to yourstereo and tv.
I Personally can't find any problems with this player, its stylish and agreat buy.

Wow this is great!Its great value for its price, but it is quite sensitive if you jerk it it's likely to freeze, this dvd is multi-region as it says, if your having trouble playing multi region dvds if you look at te top of the player there is a small switch where you can change it from pal ntsc version.This dvd player is suitable for car use and more, it can also play dvd-r, cd-r vcds.It can be plugged into the tv so you can have a bigger screen.It also comes with a battery recharger which can re-charge 300 times, but for car journey's you can connect the cigarrete socket adapter(included)into the dvd and will play off the car batery.
by buying this your doing yourself a favour this is a great little machine and I'm very pleased with mine!

Verified Purchase
I don't know why I wanted this really, but I saw one in town and it caught my imagination, particularly for looking at digital photos. That was £300 but I was tempted. I purchased a Yamada DVD player from Amazon some while ago and, for a cheap product, it's great. So, following the good reviews I am now the proud owner of this machine.
Its small, light and gives an incredibly good picture. The sound is best with earphones but quite adequate without. The battery pack, which clips on, is as heavy as the player and a bit cumbersome but overall does the job.
I've used it, herself has and, of course, the kids. If it was going to break it would within three days with my family. So far its lasted a week!
My only complaint - how do you open the lid? It looks as though it should have a catch but doesn't. I was afraid of breaking it - still it made me read the instructions which are fine - except it doesn't tell you how to open the lid!
If your tempted and, like me, just using this domestically I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I spent a long time looking around for a portable dvd player. I was very close to buying a Panasonic, and if Empire Direct had been of any help then I probably would have. Instead I saw this Yamada, with all these great reviews for quite a lot less than the others, so I thought why not. And thank god empire direct were rubbish, because its great. The picture quality is great, and looks great when plugged into a bigger TV. The sound is great, but not as good with CD's, but with headphones it sounds excellent. The only problem I can see is it looks like they forgot to make the button to open it up. There's a little catch there, but nothing to open it. You just have to pull and hope for the best. And by the way, if you want to charge the battery, make sure you connect the lead to the battery before plugging in to the mains, or it won't charge. I highly recommend this product to anyone thinking about getting a portable dvd player, and for that price, you cant go wrong!

I brought this a while back, and haven't stopped using it. Ok, so it's not your 32-inch widescreen with surround sound, but you get all the clarity, enjoyment, and social status they bring with them.
And boy, how stylish you look when you pull out one of these babies! Beautiful.
