    Good dvd players for the price

    We picked up one for each of our kids when they were half off. Pros: They are nice to have when traveling and keep the kids entertained. Cons: 1. Short battery life (about 2 hours). This wouldn't be as big of a deal if they charged via usb, but it's a bulky AC charging cord. 2. The screens are too loose and swivel out of place too easily. I have dropped one when trying to carry between my arm and side because the screen swiveled even when in the closed position. You'd think when closed (like a laptop) the screen would stay still but it doesn't. Summary: if you can get these for a good price they are probably worth it. I wouldn't have paid full $100 retail.

    This is a review after watching one DVD from Red Box. I had submitted another review earlier. It skipped and stalled two times before resuming. I will return/exchange for another. Bought an open box but maybe the new one won't stall. Maybe it is the DVD, but I never had a problem with RedBox Dvd;s before. Picture and sound quality is good. I didn't expect the quality it produced. The buttons are a bit flimsy.Doesn't have a car charger. I have USB ports to charge only and don't know if I can buy a separate car charger for this. One round point end for the DVD player entry and an USB end to charge in the USB port of car. Otherwise good DVD player.

    I got this for my nephew so he can watch his own DVD's so it works for him, he's satisfied. However, for an adult or persons who are capable to identify great quality, I don't think this would be the purchase for you. The sound quality could be better, It doesn't go up very loud, only for headphone use will you achieve descent quality of sound. The durability is ok, it's quite large than what I expected it to be when I ordered. Overall, if you are getting this for a child, the perfect if not I would seek something else of better quality overall.

    Volume too low

    We always take a DVD player when we travel to watch in our hotel room. Even with the volume turned up all the way, the sound is low. I purchased two of these and they both are like that. The swivel screen is nice, but not really necessary for me. The picture is great and it plays well. It holds a charge well and can be played while it is charging. (not all portable players can do this).

    I was looking for a relatively inexpensive yet dependable portable DVD player and I came across this at Best Buy. This player has more than exceeded my expectations. From the easy to see built in monitor to the great sound I get from the headphone jack I really don't think I could have found a better player. It does not play blue ray discs but if this doesn't matter then you should grab one.

    I bought this for my 8 year old niece for her birthday and she loves being able to watch her movies anytime she wants. The only problem I have is that I didnt notice when I bought it that when it charges it needs to be plugged into a wall outlet and I wish it had a car charger for traveling. I'm hoping I can purchase an adapter for the car. Otherwise we love it!

    My wife and I were looking for a portable DVD player for an upcoming trip. Best Buy had a few choices from 7", 10", 13" some with ac adapters and some without. Figured the 10" screen would work fine for the trip , purchased it and took it home. When we got it home we put it to the test. It worked fine decent picture and sound, It's made a little cheaply opening the DVD door but for the price what can you expect. Enjoy.

    My son goes through these things like they're water. Usually the door comes off or the hinge breaks. The Insignia™ - 10" Portable DVD Player with Swivel Screen is solidly built and has stood up to his abuse nicely. Normally he destroys them in a week but this one still works even with his normal abuse. Great product. Highly recommend if you have a need.

    In my opinion this DVD player is good enough, it is cheap and better than the one I purchased at walmart, eva brand. I was trying to spend the least amount for a portable DVD for my son. This item does that, but it's just the screen and wall recharge...nothing else, it does NOT bring the car charger, which I def. Had to buy. It does a good job and it lasts.

    DO NOT BUY IF YOU NEED EXTERNAL SPEAKERS.

    Do not buy if you plan to use external speakers. Only buy if you are using head phones. The external speakers are so low and soft that unless in a sound room with ZERO external noise will be a disappointment. I purchase 3 such players for use in a hospital for my 28 year old son with Cerebral Palsy and only one of the 3 was acceptable

    First road trip down and it worked great. Last one we had did not have battery or start back up at the same spot so this one was great as it continued to play when we stopped for gas a d always restarted at the same spot if we turned it off. Sound is not great but I usually plug it into car speakers or portable speakers anyways.

    I am very pleased with my recent purchase. I have watched 4 movies so far on this DVD player. The picture is good. The sound is plenty loud enough. (I haven't tried using the player in a moving vehicle only in my bedroom.) I am hopeful this player will last for many years with gentle use, by an adult.

    The Insignia portable dvd player with a ten inch screen is a superior product. It is used daily for a few hours each time . The clarity of the screen and the sound are excellent. Having purchases other brands in the past which did not measure up or last as long, I would definitely recommend this product to others.

    Returned because I found my missing charger to another DVD I have. I did try it out to see if it was better then what I have. Picture was a little grainy and devise seemed a bit bulky. It is one of the few with a 10 inch screen, which is nice. It seemed fine for the deal of day price of $49. If it was much more probably would not get.

    I usually hav'nt the time or comfort to watch television when I want to. So a movie or so when I'm on the go can come in handy. The considered blue ray portable would come in handy, there are not that many blue ray movies I buy,so I got the Insignia 10" black swivel DVD player. Have Fun...

    This is my second purchase of this portable DVD player. First one lasted us several years for in car travel, vacations and temporary setups. The kids abuse this device and keeps on ticking. Best value for the money in this market balancing performance with quality. If it had blue-ray available, would be 5 stars.

    Looking for a Portable DVD player that would play DVDs and Blueray. Also need a car jack. Asked an associate, he recommended the insignia. So I took his word. This does Not play blueray and does Not come with a car jack. Would only recommend if someone was looking for a DVD player Only. (Miss placed my receipt, so I couldn’t return it)

    I bought this for my 89 year old Mom. She likes to watch musical dvds and musical concerts dvds. This is perfect because she can watch it on her tray in front of her recliner chair. She even uses headphones to not bug others. Easy for her to use and lightweight for her to set up.

    I bought this DVD player for my next door neighbor who is bed ridden with Parkinson's. This product is a real benefit to him as he has horrible pain that is exacerbated by movement and this small player allows him to watch DVD’s, while being able to manipulate and control the player easily.

    No car charger? Seriously?

    I honestly didn't even fire this up before returning it. Why would a *portable* DVD player come with an AC adapter instead of a car adapter? If I wanted to watch a DVD where I had AC power, I'd use a real DVD player on a bigger screen. As it is, the road trip can't go very far with this one...
