I love to go camping on the weekends, but my truck camper is limited on power for operating the TV and DVD player, so rather than invest in an expensive power system or listen to the generator, I decided a portable DVD with good battery life would solve the problem. So, I shopped and after reading reviews and viewing the advertised battery life, I ordered the unit. I am very pleased with it. This past weekend I watched two complete movies, and some special features, approximately 5 hours and had battery to spare. The weather was lousy, so I needed the entertainment. The sound was great, especially with my headphones. The picture is terrific and I really love the easy touch screen controls. I am unsure if I will use the swivel screen, but it will make it versatile, if needed. I had a cheap portable with a battery life of about an hour and a half, if you are lucky, but the quality difference is amazing. A great buy and I felt spending the extra 20 bucks or so to get the extended battery life would be worth it, and the battery, even though powerful adds little or no bulk.

I use this Sony DVPFX950 9-Inch Portable DVD Player on my treadmill by rotating the screen 180 degrees, placing the unit on the treadmill's angled bookshelf, then tilt the screen for good viewing. I leave the player open and on the bookshelf (but covered with a light cloth to keep dust off), so just powering up resumes the movie from the point at which I last stopped it. When I'm done with the treadmill, I just press the player's front panel "Stop" button, power the player off, and toss the cloth over the unit.

Rotating the screen 180 degrees puts the player's screen hinge at the "bottom" or "downhill" side of the bookshelf, which means the player's weight is concentrated at the bottom of the shelf and therefore the player isn't going to accidentally tip over the top edge of the bookshelf.

The player seems to be unaffected by the very little vibration created by the treadmill - no pixelation or pauses or skipping in the video or audio.

The mechanical/physical controls at the bottom edge of the screen are not back-lit or illuminated in any way, so they are a bit difficult to see in dim lighting.

Overall, this player works great. I've not noticed any problems with it.

UPDATE: The replacement machine I received has now completely croaked after only four months- and out of warranty. It made a grinding noise and just froze completely. And again, I hadn't even taken it anywhere yet. I am VERY disappointed in the Sony brand and having the same problem in two machines is no accident. DO NOT BUY THIS at any price. Here's my old review... Great picture. Only problem is that it was noisy when running the DVD. Guess that was a predictor of what was to come. All of a sudden it was on the DVD menu and wouldn't accept any commands- stuck. Tried turning off, turning on, etc. but it just stopped. We hadn't even had it a month, had treated it gently, and we hadn't even carried it anywhere. I had read extensive reviews before choosing this one, and I noticed that some Cnet reviews said the same thing. So I chose to purchase from Amazon, in case of a return. Which was a good thing, since it has been returned. If you still want to buy after reading this, know that it is a bit noisy and the button for fast forward/rewind is a bit touchy and hard to work. I noticed a greater lag time between inserting the DVD and playing. Maybe I just got a bad egg, but I have seen other reviews that say the same thing. Beware!

I have used several car DVD players with low sound, fuzzy pictures and won't play some of my home-made DVD's. I went looking for a better picture, ability to play more formats and bigger sound, remote control, swivel display and USB port for jpeg pics. --- This Sony, machine won HANDS DOWN! --- Especially when I found it also had control buttons on the front of the display/monitor under the monitor that swivel with the monitor. That has been a real plus. It's as though Sony intentionally made this machine to order just for me. And the price was very reasonable too! My 4 year old granddaughter can adjust the volume herself from her car seat without asking for the remote. And if she falls asleep during the drive, we simply turn off the machine with the remote while driving. Now if you're still not impressed ----- check this out ----- when she wakes up and we turn the machine back on, it automatically pics up with the show just where it left off. I couldn't be happier with my choice. Jim in Oklahoma.

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.
