It would also make a great gift for someone who travels a lot or who is in a nursing home. And you cant beat the price. You definitely get your moneys worth with this Sylvania portable DVD player.
For a couple of DVDs I tried, I had to have the volume cranked to the pegs to hear clearly in an open room. This might not be a problem with earbuds. The good news is that there was almost no distortion with louder sounds & soundtrack music.
The biggest downer I can foresee is the batteries. While the LiPoly cells are generally a great device, eventually they will start to lose power-holding ability. In the DVD player, there's no easy (or presently cheap) way to replace the cells. I'm hoping that the internal charger circuit doesn't do something odd to "protect" the dead cells by disabling the unit -- because the '7014 looks like it could be useful for quite some time with either the wall-wart or car cord.
Speaking of which: there's a good market for those cords. I sold my car-cord to another owner (whose dog had chewed theirs up) for $15.
Also, I'm not sure I'd be happy having LiPoly batteries around small children, large dogs, or clumsy adults, as I read they're capable of bursting into flame if shorted or punctured. That's probably why they're usually sealed into devices like this.
All in all, it's better than I was expecting for only $60.
Note: if you pause the movie and close the lid. Provided it stays powered on, you can return to the exact moment when you paused it.
