great player, so-so controls,
This review is from: Sony DVP-FX950 9-Inch Portable DVD Player (2009 Model) (Electronics)
The screen on this thing is awesome. It's bright, smooth, nice contrast, great viewing angle, easy for several to people to view from different angles. The battery life is also quite good, even with the brightness turned up and using the built-in speakers. The speakers sound pretty good considering their size. The drive itself is fairly quiet.
My main complaint is with the touch controls. Since they're not push buttons, they have no tactile feedback and are a little hard to operate, especially in dim light (you can't "feel" your way through the individual buttons). The 4-way control is a bit too small, better-suited for kids' fingers. The worst is the options button to the right of that control, it's easily pressed by mistake when using the 4-way, bringing up the options menu. One tip, if you see "hold on" it means you have the "hold" feature enabled (a switch next to the power switch) - it's not asking you to wait.
