Good DVD player for travelling. We played over 12 hours of use on our trip and never had an issue. Never skipped and a great option was that we could pause it or turn off the car and the movie would pick up where it stopped. My seven year old could use it easily with no help which was convenient while driving. Screen size is comparable to a regular Kindle screen, but I felt it was just fine for travelling since it's right in front of them. Our only issue was that it arrived without the remote but the prompt customer service resolved it by quickly answering emails and sending out a replacement. So we didn't have the remote for the trip, but the controls on the actual player were just fine for my seven year old to use. In fact, probably easier for her than the actual remote. I recommend this DVD player!! One more thing, keep in mind it will not play Blu-ray, if that's all you have.
