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.
