The Philips PET710 Portable dvd player is a good and affordable device, around $160, which is a reasonable price for one of these. It has a 7 inch TFT-LCD Display, and can do all the usual functions: Play/Pause/Stop, Skip to, next/previous chapter, Forward/Reverse search (2, 4, 8, 16 or 32X), Slow Motion, Menu navigation, Zoom, Camera angle selection, Audio Select (mono/stereo) and mute, Language select, Subtitles, Track/Title Repeat, and OSD Setup menu. It comes with an AC Charger, In-car charger, Remote Control, AV Connectors, Basic User Guide in English, French, Spanish and German in the box with the player. The only problem I found wit it was its removable battery, which your like me i kept misplacing!The dvd player can be hooked up to your tv and play on that, which is a useful function. It is an attractive silver colour and is the size of three dvd cases stacked upon each other when closed.The unit is compatible with both DVD video and DVDr. I have used various branded and unbranded discs in it without any issues. It also plays MP3 discs, CDs and picture CDs, which makes it ideal child friendly entertainment for long car journeys. A useful feature with this machine is that it has outputs for two headphones, so two kids can watch in relative silence. There is a neat little microswitch that switches off the LCD when the unit is closed, saving wear on the screen when playing through the television. A brilliant dvd player for on the go use if you ask me!
