I was a little skeptical about ordering this at first because of the other 2 bad reviews, but then I realized the reviews didn't really talk about the product quality, just that they didn't get what they thought they were getting. So, here is what I was hoping I was getting: 1. 9-inch screen 2. 4 hours of battery life 3. A clear screen 4. Good sound quality 5. An easy to use portable DVD player

That's it! It has what I was looking for at an excellent price! I don't think I could have been more pleased. The sound quality is great if you use halfway decent headphones. My son's only cost $20 and it sounds great with them. Just bear in mind that a portable DVD player isn't going to have the sound quality of a large TV. Although, it's still pretty good in my opinion.

We have tried other brands of portable DVD players and they cannot compare to this. Of the 3 we have owned, This is by far the best. When traveling on rough road there's no skipping, the picture is beautiful, the sound is excellent. One of the best features is we could hook it up to the large HDTV in our hotel room in the evenings and watch movies using is like a regular DVD player at the house. I would recommend this to anyone.

If Sony wants to make a newer model of a DvD player, you would think they would improve it, not take away features. It is quite puzzling.
Pros: All sony players have much clearer picture quality than most other companies. That really is the most important feature. It also has the ability to fast forward, and rewind, not just skip chapters like many other players
Cons: They took away 3 features!!!!! 1) swivel screen 2) instead of 2 audio headphone jacks- which were on the previous model, they only put one, so if you take the player in the car with you, only one person could use headphones at a time, instead of 2 kids sharing it. 3)THe battery is not replaceable.

OVERVIEW:
-----------

We have been using Sony portable DVD players for many years and have always been very happy with them. This model has the usual GREAT PICTURE AND SOUND we expect.

Actual play time ranges from 3hrs (default) to 3hrs 50mins depending on backlight setting (at full screen). Realistically expect 3hrs 30mins at most since a backlight setting of 5 starts getting pretty low.

If considering the 7" version of this, I highly suggest spending the extra $20ish and get this one. The 9" screen alone is worth it.

It has a VERY SHORT CORD, past models cords were a full 2'+ longer than this one. The new cord port is incompatible with past ones so if you are replacing an older model, you can't use the older cord. Sony said they don't sell a long version of the new cord, if you find one from a third party company please note it in a comment :). You can always get an extension cord.

The Sony line-up has changed considerably. Gone are the mid-range models with 6 hour battery, 2 headphone ports, etc. They now just offer two very competent models including this one, as well as one with high-end features that is a $200ish affair (at the time of this review). I hope to see models with 6+ hour batteries in the mid-range again.

PROS:
------

- The usual GREAT PICTURE and SOUND of a Sony portable DVD player.

- 9" DISPLAY (diagonal) which is a much better size than 7". It also has a much higher resolution than the 7" model (800x480 vs. 480x234).

- Battery Times:
3.00 HOURS battery time with default backlight setting 10 out of 1-20 (full screen).
3.50 HOURS battery time with backlight setting 5 out of 1-20 (full screen).

Okay, I heeded the other reviews and noted the four hour battery life and the non swiveling screen. I wanted a simple device to watch education DVDs. My laptops are heavy and somewhat fragile because of hard drives. I figured for the price this would fit the bill. It's perfect. The screen is bright and clear. 4 hours is plenty of life for physics lectures!

I've been looking for a reputable and economical brand name portable DVD player with a USB port to play a variety of media in a lightweight package. The goal was to have a player to entertain a small child and/or a soldier in the Middle East with few moving parts. For our needs, most of what's played comes from the USB stick, not the DVD player piece. Sony has hit the mark with this player. Both the child and soldier can have hours of entertainment without having to carry additional pieces. We could've easily bought a tablet instead, but the investment would be substantially more cost wise, and likely require a computer to change files. Both situations would not be ideal.

PROS:
(1) Player has a USB port. We fill a USB drive with MP4's so hours of various video are already attached to the player without worrying about discs getting scratched up or lost. Our MP4's are done at 400k/s, which can be a bit jagged, but is only noticed if staring very closely at the screen. If you want higher resolution, the files will be larger, and take up more space. MP3's and pictures are options as well. Picture and sound quality are great. We use the mini USB sticks that are the size of a thumb print so the stick remains connected to the unit and available upon player boot without being intrusive.

(2) When using the DVD player portion, the picture and sound are superb. While this piece won't be used much, it's good to know that if a DVD is used, the quality is there.

(3) Controls on the unit are full functional and self-explanatory. Hence, we do not require the included remote to work.

(4) The player comes with an AC adapter and car charger to charge the internal battery, so Sony does know that it was made for on the go.
