5.0 out of 5 stars Bought It For Another Purpose .... Loving It!, September 10, 2011

This review is from: Sylvania Portable DVD Player SDVD7027-C, 7-Inch, Swivel Screen, Black (Electronics)
I've been volunteering at a local dance club to play music for a women's line dancing group one day a week and originally hooked up a karaoke player with a 7" video screen to the club's sound system for that purpose. After about a year of lugging my portable karaoke/dvd/cd player, I decided to use my android tablet for the same purpose, but missed not having a cd player for those less often requested musical selections not currently on my sd card ... thus I started carrying my portable karaoke player with me as a backup. Well, last week I thought seriously about buying a portable dvd/cd player instead to do the job of both units and came across this unit. I ordered prior to labor day and received delivery promptly as estimated while taking advantage of the free shipping option.

The bonus of not only being portable but also having a built in battery good enough for 2 hours of play time and the capability of not only reading from the usb and sd ports were the best selling points for me. I ordered one for now and I couldn't be happier. The video and sound quality is excellent! For my purposes, the built in speakers are adequate but when the unit is coupled with a studio grade sound amplifier/mixer through the headphone jacks ... the result is just great! Just for my own curiousity I used the supplied a/v plug to connect the player to the tv in my livingroom and the picture is more than acceptable for something that isn't blu-ray or hd. BTW for those interested ... the unit will also play karaoke cd-g discs flawlessly too!

For the money, the 7" screen is a better deal than the 9" same brand unit also sold here at the Amazon site and more than ample for my alterior needs. The only drawbacks to using this player in lieu of my android tablet or karaoke player is that you can't seem to alphabetize or customize your mp3 music or video playlist through the usb/sd card ports. For my purposes, the included remote is not really necessary but a very welcomed convenience. The unit is a no-brainer to use, so should someone be called in to substitute for me for whatever reason ... it wouldn't be rocket science to figure out what buttons to press.
