Top Customer Reviews
I am very please with the latest Sony model, what has changed is they made the screen an inch larger and placed touch buttons on the newer model. This FX 930 looks more modern, sleek although it is a little larger.
I am very pleased as I have played various DVD's, using full and normal settings that you can select for wide or standard screen formats. I have played many CD's from the actual artists to my own made CD's at home and played music files from my PC and taken along photos like a photo album when I want to share or have those close to me with me so to speak when traveling.
Sound is fine for the little speakers but 99% of the time I use really good headphones and you get two jacks so you can share when sitting with someone on a plane, train, or in the car as long as you are not driving. Had to toss that in! ;)
It is not too heavy compared to many, certainly much less than a laptop and still small enough screen size to know you are not luggin around a laptop. Battery life is standard, I have it run out yet but have not been on pure battery for 6 hours yet either. I try to have it plugged in most of the time during use and for the car you get a car charger included in the box.
Being it is smaller it makes it more mobile for your travels whether local or abroad.
I have been using this item non-stop almost without any issues. Could it be improved, yes, almost any product can be and as with any electronics they seem to improve with almost each iteration.
With this said, you can save $30-$40 by buying the previous model. It is an inch smaller but the screen resolution is the same and many of the features are almost identical.
Take it for a test drive and remember you've got 30 days to test it and if it is not what you like or expect, return it and try another, but choices on these products are quite limited since many use their PSP, iPhone, or iPods to watch movies/videos etc.
I am giving this 3 stars because of the blank video screen problem, but not fewer because I was able to fix it (at least for the time being).
We got this Sony DVP-FX930 about 11 months ago. We didn't start using it until last Fall. We had been pleased with it - using it mostly to entertain our small children when they have to few other options, like waiting at piano lessens for their siblings.
But then sometimes the screen would not work. We could hear the sound, but there would be no image - not even the blue screen at start up. We tried recharging, removing and then replacing the battery. Sometimes it would start working again. Finally a few weeks ago it stopped all together.
This is one of the problems commonly reported in the Amazon reviews for both the FX930 and the FX820. And with the reported poor and expensive Sony warranty I decided to try to fix it myself.
I removed all the screws from the bottom. There are 16 screws. 4 are under the corner rubber feet (not under the two feet at the midline). The feet can be peeled off with a knife. One screw is under a warranty void stick - I had to break that sticker. After removing all the screws the player came apart easily. The cable from the screen has a white connector on the motherboard. There is no clip on this connector and it can be easily removed. I removed it and then reseated it. I replaced the battery without putting the screws back and held the player together by hand while turning on the power switch. I got the initial blue screen. I then tried a DVD and it showed up on screen. I replaced all the screws and it continues to work.
I suspect that the cable connector could work lose again. When it does I might try adding a little epoxy on the cable connector junction to hold it in place.
I don't know if this is the root cause for all blank video reports on Amazon. But a mechanical failure like a poor cable connection rather than electrical seems to be consistent with reports of intermittent problems before complete video failure.

Just wanted to update that the player is still working now more than three years after having reseated the video cable on the motherboard.
The screen resolution and quality is good, but not great. (I couldn't imagine viewing anything on a smaller screen.) Furthermore, I expected better speaker quality from Sony (and this price range.) The 180 degree pivoting screen was deceiving, as it only pivots to one side. Logically, I don't understand this, as 90 degrees to each side makes more sense. However, the 6 hour battery life seems accurate - although it also requires a 6 hour charge.
Overall, I'd buy it again as it was invaluable for entertaining the granddaughter on the long flight. However, if you aren't in a hurry, it would pay to wait for the price to drop.
