    Decent for the price

    In short, you get what you pay for. Bought two of these about 4 months ago to go on a 9-hour plane ride with a 4-year-old and an 8-year-old. Great size, easy to use, low price compared to others. Price is main reason for purchasing this one. After about four months (and probably watching about 40 movies on each device), one still working perfectly fine but the other only works when plugged in to a power source and the head phones no longer work. Only recommend for the low price, but disappointed the one is basically broken after not much use.

    Purchased this after reading other reviews and found most liked this one. Color choice was also a factor slightly. I did purchase a 2 yr. service agreement as it is a gift for a 4 yr, old.. I would recommend this if you gong it ti a young one. This can be interfaced with a home TV system. Battery life is acquit, it also comes with an A/C adapter and if needed or wanted a auto power adapter can be purchased, The head head phones is a nice touch along with a caring case to keep everything together

    I really like the DVD player, i will say that it will not play any dvds that may have a lot of scratchs on them. My son used to be really hard on DVDs and i clean them the best that i can, and some will play in an older DVD player but not in this one. The only negative is the headphones, while i like the sturdiness of them, they must sit on kids heads weird, because my 2 kids both say they hurt their ears and refused to wear them.

    Traveled to CA from AZ, it worked great. We stored it properly while on vacation and before the long trip home we went to charge it and it wouldn't hold a charge. Trued charging in the car as well and wouldnt charge right. Glad I purchased coloring books for my daughter cause that would've been a LONG 12 hr trip w nothing to do. We are going to try and exchange it so we will see what they say.

    This thing is a piece of junk. I ordered two for my children. One was broken when we got it. The other one broke within two weeks. It broke while we were on a cruise and by the time we got back the 14 day return period was over and Best Buy won't take back. I am completely dissatisfied with the product and with the service I received. I will not be making any more purchases from Best Buy.

    Nice basic portable dvd player. Lasted almost 3 years. Convenient for travel and as spare for the kids. Simple to use and durable. Swivel option is nice and can watch at least one movie unplugged when fully charged. Good for the money (no need for protection plan)

    Item is as described with one exception: there is no charging cable. We got two adapters, no USB cable. Not a huge deal as we have many extras. However, I noticed a piece of paper in the box which said if we do a review we can get a free wall charger and USB cable.

    We use this DVD player in the car to keep the kids busy during long road trips. It is simple enough for them to operate but not too complicated. I would recommend for anybody with young kids that doesn't want to spend a fortune.

    We bought this for trips and my kids love it. They can work it without my help and it is quite easy to figure out. They battery life is what I expected. Our normal trips are 3-4 hours and it lasts that long.

    this was not a good Portable DVD Player, the cost was great but the dvd player was tearing up and we only had it for about one week. I returned it back to my local store.

    Only used it a couple times but has worked great for traveling long distance. We do have a power inverter we keep it plugged into so I don't know how the battery last.
