Enjoy movies, music, and audio while you are on the go with the PET741M Portable DVD Player from Philips. This DVD player features a 7" LCD screen designed to display your media in rich detail and vibrant colors. Its native 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio means you won't get the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen during video playback and without the picture quality loss that often comes from video scaling. In addition to standard DVD playback, the PET741M supports several other multimedia formats, including DVD+/-R and +/-RW, SVCD, CD, and MP3-CD. You can also play JPEG files you have saved onto a compatible disc.
Top Customer Reviews
That said, for the price, this player met (and maybe even exceeded) all of our expectations. Is the picture quality high def? No. Are the speakers loud? No. Are the buttons kind of flimsy? Yes. But when you're on a 4,500 mile, two week road trip with a 6 year old boy, this was an absolute life saver.
We switched back and forth between a 1/4" audio cable from the player to our car's aux audio jack and our son's headphones, so audio wasn't an issue. The speakers worked on the brief occasions that it was used in a hotel room.
Playback worked every time. And yes, there is a setting for starting your video where you left off if you power down the device. On our player this was already on by default.
Isn't going to win any "military grade" build awards. But this was actually dropped from about 4 feet to concrete once and it survived without any damage.
Don't expect this battery to be "all day" like an iPad. Or even long enough to watch an entire movie. Just consider it a handy back-up when you're moving between power outlets. We used the included car adapter with no issues.
Completely baffled our iOS raised 6 year old. But pretty straight forward for those of us who know our way around other consumer electronics menu systems. Was no problem for the 10 year old who traveled with us.
Looks on par with those old all-in-one VHS player/TV's from the 90's. But hey, it's 7 inches. The overall size of the device is really great though. You can stick this thing just about anywhere as you're moving from car to tent to hotel to home. Anything bigger and you might as well use a laptop.
Overall, I'd say stop worrying over which $50-$80 poorly designed plastic disc player you should get while you wait for ubiquitous wi-fi. This one works well.
EA Electronics gets high marks from me, too. I received my package even *sooner* than expected! (How often does that happen?)
