    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Bought this for road trips with grandkids. It works well and does not skip when the road is rough. My only complaint is that the speakers are not very loud. It has a regular plug and not a car adapter. That works in my car, but buyers who don't have that kind of outlet need to be aware.

    Handy device for movie watching in tight quarters.

    Has memory, so if you need to stop watching something and remove the disk, it will pick up where it left off, given the same disc is re-inserted. Main drawback - lack of remote: can be tricky operating buttons with fingers, if a larger man is operating them.

    This was a Christmas gift for a pre-teen girl. For some reason she likes watching movies on this rather than the 46 inch TV screen. She really likes the swivel screen. Hopefully, it lasts as long as the Sony movie player did. That lasted at least 8 years.

    Tablet with Keyboard okay

    Battery drains much faster than previous models, I am having to recharge morning and night after use. The keyboard is easy to use, which is good but soaks up the battery power within a couple hours. The previous model without keyboard would last multiple days, with the same usage.

    We purchased this device for our 2yr old daughter. It was strictly supposed to be just for car rides. Our only issue is the VOLUME. It's hard to hear it sometimes inside the car when people r talkilmg or the cars ruuning..

    For the price it was worth it. The swivel I have found gets a bit loose after some real use. So I would assume if you let your kids use it most it will get loose pretty easy. Otherwise great picture and sound, it was just what I wanted

    This replaces a very old portable DVD player that I used daily, and the screen size and audio quality give me the upgrade I was needing. Some difficulty in figuring out the adjustments, as there are no detailed instructions included.

    We bought this to entertain the kids while traveling. It worked well. It was better than using a laptop. It helped make a 10 hour trip peaceful. The picture quality and sound quality was fine.

    We had the old model and kept it for about 8 months which is what we expected. This one is ok but we have to return this one also because now we need blue ray as well and a remote control

    I was going on a long car ride and wanted something to watch without using my data on my tablet. This worked perfect. Comes with charger for the car and plug in for charging at home.

    Works good, easy to use. Only reason for 4 stars is that I wish it was more durable. Keep in mind that I have a severely autistic 19 year old, so few things are. Probably perfect for most 10 year olds though.

    This is a handy portable DVD player at a good price which enables me to listen and watch my teaching DVD's anywhere I go. It is not for good quality movies, but great for information DVD's.

    We took the kids cross country and the DVD player kept the kids entertained for a good chunk of the trip. The battery needs to be recharged after 2.5 hours so we bought a special outlet charger.
