This review is for: Sony DVP-FX780 Portable DVD Player (Introduced March '12)

OVERVIEW:
-----------

We have been using Sony portable DVD players for many years and have always been very happy with them. However, although this has the usual GREAT PICTURE AND SOUND we expect from Sony portable DVD players, CONSIDER A HIGHER END SONY MODEL.

This is an excellent entry point into Sony's portable DVD players. However, for only $20-$30ish more one can leap to a 9" screen (9" diagonal) with higher resolution to boot, a much better choice. The 9" models available at the time of this review:
Sony DVPFX980 9-Inch Screen DVD Portable
Sony BDPSX910 Portable Blu-ray Player

One negative that stands out is its RIDICULOUSLY SHORT CORD compared to past models. The new cord plug-in port is incompatible with past cords so if you are replacing an old model, you can't use the old much longer cord. Sony said they don't sell a long version of the new cord, if you find one from a third party company, please add that information in a comment :).

The Sony line-up has changed considerably. Gone are the mid-range models with 6 hour battery, 2 headphone ports, etc. They are now just offering very competent models at the low end and getting to high-end features is now a $200ish affair (at the time of this review). I hope to see models with 6+ hour batteries in the low to mid-range models again.

This DVD player from Sony is a good value for the price. It's a small unit with 7 inch screen, decent audio and basic features of any DVD player such as play, pause, menu, audio, return, options, volume, fast forward/reverse, etc. I do have to agree that the controls could be more sensitive, but are certainly completely functional. It also has a A/V out as well as a headphone jack. It's a bit "fat" but fairly light and portable. The exterior design has a nice feel to it, it feels better than plain surface.

Among my criteria for selecting a DVD player was a good brand, which Sony certainly is. It's been working well for me the few months I've had it. The other criteria for selecting this unit was the battery life. This unit has a 4-hour battery life and so far I can say that my battery has been holding up near that long. I've never actually ran it completely out, but used it for nearly 4 hours on a few occasions and battery still had a bit left in it. The full charge takes nearly 4 hours.

There is no doubt that there will be newer and better players coming out with newer features, longer lasting batteries, etc. but overall, this is a great value for the price.

Like many other reviewers, I purchased this for my kid (toddler, actually) to watch Sesame Street on 1 plane trip and for a handful of long (30 minute) car rides--it worked great. For less than 6 months.

I charged the DVD player fully after every use and noticed after 6 months of light use, the battery wouldn't hold a great charge--after 30 minutes, it was a goner last week. Today: I didn't get 4 minutes down the road after a full charge, and it was done--empty battery symbol flashed and that was the end of it!

There's no way to replace the battery (design flaw or planned obsolesence to drive future sales??), which is disappointing. I hate the idea of spending money on a disposable DVD player--I neither want to purchase a new one nor toss this otherwise fine DVD player in the landfill.

For the next generation of these DVD players, Sony needs to create acessible and replacable batteries. This product was an annoying waste of my time and money.

First of all, I would like to preface my review by saying that I haven't gotten down to using the DVD player extensively. I just un-boxed it today and tested a couple of DVDs. So these are first impressions. The player looks nice and solid; I like the textured design which is meant to keep those finger prints at bay. The video quality wasn't exactly stellar but not bad either (which I believe is typical for players this size). The audio was quite clear though. The unit comes with an AC adapter as well as a Car adapter.But no remote; all the functions are on the unit itself. Please note that the Amazon description gives the battery life as 3 hours, but the unit box claims 4 hours of battery life, which was a welcome surprise! A few minor complaints - the AC adapter has a very short chord and I wish the indents for placing the fingers while plucking out the DVD were better-positioned.

I bought this DVD player a week ago and I just love it. It's super light and has great audio. The screen size is just fine too. The battery life is wonderful. I was able to watch 4 hours of a 6 hr. movie and I watched the remaining two hours while the DVD player was charging. I would definitely recommend this item.
