Portable DVD Player Review

 

Watching movies is a great time passer, especially on long trips or when caught in remote locations with no television. Whilst laptops are capable of playing DVD movies, portable DVD players are a popular alternative, especially for entertaining children.

Dedicated portable DVD player tends to be smaller and lighter and offer longer battery life and more playback options than a laptop.

Portable DVD players are about the size and weight of a thin hardcover book, but still generally offer many of the playback features of full-size DVD players.

They vary in support of compatible disc formats, including home movies and TV shows stored on recordable DVD formats, as well as audio CD and discs loaded with digital music files.

Some portable DVD players even allow you to create digital slide shows from discs encoded with JPEG picture files.

Most portable DVD players are hinged and open like a laptop computer, but a few come in a tablet design. Tablets can be easier to watch when resting on your lap, but rather than one format having many benefits over the other, it is more about individual user preference.

Cost Of Portable DVD Players

Whilst portable DVD players were very expensive when initially released, [upward of $1,000], prices have dropped in recent years, allowing shoppers to purchase a very functional portable DVD player model for well under $200.

Many portable players today can double as CD players as well, eliminating the need to take one extra device on your trip.
