    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.

    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.

    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...

    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)

    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...

    I bought this DVD player for my grandchildren to watch movies on trips in the car and on planes. The picture quality is great but even at its highest volume the sound isn’t loud enough. If there is any background noise it’s impossible to hear.

    No bad, but I wish it included a car charger and AV cable. All of the av cables I've tried so far will not work with this player and I cannot find the specific Insignia AV cable for this device. There is no way for me to connece this player to a TV!

    My flat screen got damaged so I needed a quick replacement, and my new Insignia Portable DVD player serves the purpose until I can get a new flat screen. The volume does not go up high, but there is a port for an external speaker.

    These get the job done when traveling. Worth the buy if you can get them on sale. Would be nice if the screen were attached more sturdily as it flips around alot. Well see how it stands up to a 5 and 8 year old.

    Plays DVD as advertised, picture quality is very good and the sound is decent too. BUT there is no 12v car compatable charger included with the device. Yes you read that correctly, no car power source included.

    This portable DVD player works well. Good picture and I like the control layout. It would be great if they made portable DVD players that are blue-ray and wi-if compatible, but I guess that’s what laptops are for.

    I bought this for my daughter who was hospitalized for a few weeks. It does okay for her but it started to freeze up and go a little slow after about the second week.

    This DVD player is okay for casual use. It works pretty good, however the battery life is not great. You’ll get about 2 hours out of it. I keep it plugged in most of the time.

    On scale 1-10 I would say 6 only because it has video out jack but mine does not display on my TV and that was part of my reason of purchasing this item but still good for on the go.

    I wish it charged longer and was bigger. I am still unsure if I can recharge to run a whole movie after using some shorter DVD's Videos

    It’s an good picture but there’s no remote and battery life is limited. Expensive for a sub par portable dvd player.

    The Insignia portable DVD player works well, has a decent screen and the price is right. Takes up very little space. Perfect for a dorm room or studio.

    Picked this up for my dad, the first one had an issue with latch. We exchanged it for a new one and it works great for him. Paid for it $50 during Christmas.

    There wasn't a big selection, as everyone uses iPads now, but this was the best deal for a decent size screen (10")

    I am expecting it to be a good product but as I have not yet had a chance to try it out I really cannot say anything else.
