Might consider this - our 2 year old has 'borrowed' my Panasonic one to watch Timmy Time in bed ...
#2
Looks good - I guess it can be worked off the ciggie socket in a car.
#3
upto 2 hours battery life is a bit disappointing i get over 3 out of my cheapo acoustic solutions 9" dvd player.
good price for a brand name though if that bothers you:)
#5
You are right, it is better! I have not heard of the company though - any dealings with them?

#6
I recently purchased 2 x Philips MP3 player 4GB for £19.99 was advertised on here last week.

Received them within a couple of days.
#7
I am told that 7" isn't quite big enough, 9" gives a much more pleasurable experience oO

The one on telephones online looks like a refurb to me always prefer to have a new one. I think 7" is ok for children. Mine have them in the car and keeps them happy.
I have bought from Littlewoods clearance on s few deals always happy with it
#9
I'm sure they will have to say if it were or not. The MP3's came in the original packaging.
#10
Looks a super deal to me. Are these suitable for the car, i.e. can you fit them onto the headrest?
#11
I think this is a better deal for an extra £5.
Those refurb DCP850's have just sold out @ telephones online. :|

Ah the old neglectomatic, what a fantastic invention!

This might not have the usb port, but it has everything else and easy to find multi-region codes.

The battery might be a concern for some, but I'd be using it at various places - rather than to and from them, so it isn't for me.

I have yet to find any a big name player, approaching this cost, with both usb and divx features. I'd been looking at this a while back, for all the above reasons.

Good find.

nice :p

This is a great DVD player I bought the silver one for £70 for my OH last christmas

I don't think there are many Portable DVD Players that are used outside of the car or home environment, mainly due to the lack of battery life in them, and the cost associated with ones that have a decent battery life.

One solution should you wish to have a "Portable" DVD Player is to buy an external battery that has a multitude of DC power tips to provide the internal battery with juice when it starts to run out.....but these cost £30 themselves.

Personally for long flights, a Netbook, with a 9 cell battery not only has a better resolution, but provides you with 8 hours of battery life, you can watch a couple of films in DIVX as well as play various video games, including retro emulators of SNES, N64 etc classics.

Albeit more expensive, it is a truly portable option to consider instead of a Portable DVD Player, and more versatile.

There are several, used in many other places.
Portable means that it can be taken from place to place. Though most are often used on the way, they don't have to be.

this one. It is portable and does just what I would like it to - at various places, rather than between them. Battery life is not an issue.


Albeit more expensive
Take triple the price of this and see if you can find a netbook with an optical drive, to play DVDs (as that's the point of the device, that this thread concerns), that compares as well with its competitors.


it is a truly portable option to consider
This thread is for the "Philips 7" Portable DVD Player in Black". Turning that enthusiasm for netbooks towards portable DVD players, can you find this one at a cheaper price or a competing model at a similar price?

My fingers are crossed but, if noone can, this will be my purchase. A quick multi-region adjustment and it will be all set.

Incredibly defensive, I happen to own a portable dvd player with limited battery life, I haven't voted this cold....just saying that personally I prefer for lengthy travel a netbook with divx stored on them. As battery life on Portable DVD players does suck....fact.

With 2 hours battery life it barely gets you through a film, so I feel a comment about lack of portability justifiable, and mention of an external battery practical, both this one and the one I own has just 2 hours of battery life, hence why they are really only suitable for home or car use as I mentioned, if you feel otherwise then you clearly are watching very short films on your short journeys.

If you also feel you need to get defensively critical over my useful suggestions of buying an external power battery, or consider other options then you are somehow missing the point.

Not all experiences are the same. Other people might purchase a little more carefully.

N.B.: "at various places, rather than between them"

No judgement was passed. No fault was found. Advocating something different does not make a post either critical or defensive.

It's not other people missing a point. It's that point not being clear enough.
A person who wants longer battery life is quite likely to have considered another battery.

Can you find this portable DVD player at a cheaper price or a competing model at a similar price?

Are you for real?! A person who wants a longer battery life (and 2 hours battery life on this very thread, as well as on many a portable dvd players reviews are criticised) may not be aware that with devices such as this that only have an integral battery there are options out there to extend that via an external charged battery pack.

This happens to be a forum for discussion, not just can you find the same or similar device cheaper, quite often people criticise or openly review how good or bad a product is by its merits or flaws.

These devices as said are limitedly portable, providing you have a power socket to hand, as I already said they are only really useful around the house or in a car, useless wherever there is no power source convenient due to the limited nature of the battery, if you do a search on many a portable dvd player on here you are bound to find someone mention "pity about the battery life" on a 2 hour battery life player, regardless of price.

Not everybody knows the other options or considerations, and generally people on here are quite happy to weigh up the pros and cons of items by others giving information (in the old days, I amongst others used to get rep for useful info)....I dont see how that is missing the point. I have been on this forum nearly 4 years, and occasionally someone like yourself crops up that seems to think that any discussion should just be related to an items price/retailer/competing model.

For £50, you are never likely to find a Portable DVD Player with more than 2 hours battery life (there have been many Portable DVD Players listed on here at this price point), however if anyone needs it to be "truly" portable (not just portable in your eyes whereby it can be carried around from power point to power point) not everyone has the technical knowledge to know that other options exist such as a £30 battery extender which would at least double the power.

Age does not make one stance more valid than another.

It would insult a large number of people, to think that none amongst them could have sought out more information.

Could you find a dvd-playing notebook for double or even triple that £50?


any discussion should just be related to an items price/retailer/competing model
Telling someone that he / she can purchase a notebook, instead of a sub £50 device, is like telling a person on a bus that he / she can purchase a car.


not just can you find the same or similar device cheaper
shoppaholic almost managed to, though it was all too quickly sold out. That - post 4 - was extremely useful.

Do the same and I will be amongst the first to post thanks. Until then, kudos / heat to the original poster.

Try reading my posts, since when have I told anyone to purchase a netbook instead, I said personally I prefer using...its another, in my opinion better option for travelling distance (albeit more expensive one which I also mentioned., along with my suggestion of buying an external battery for this device or other Portable DVD Player that has poor battery life.

Seems you are reading into my comments just a little too intensely.
#23
I like having the pros and cons pointed out to me, whatever the price. Although I do wonder why every deal ends up in an arguement containing long lists of quotes...

anyhow, I brought one for my son who spends a lot of time in hospital, so I'm happy :)
#24
@ Cicobuff -

As I am looking for a cheap portable dvd player for my son on a forthcoming long-haul flight your comments regarding battery life have been very helpful and imo relevant to the thread.

Are all portable dvd players fitted with on-board, non-removable batteries?
