- good product
Product is very nice. Has alot of nice features that my old one did not. I bought it for my 4 year old daughter who has to have it in the car . She found all the buttons very fast and is easy for her to turn on and off. Over all, very good ....more info
- Still going strong
I have had this product for only a few weeks but I am very happy so far. The picture is good on the actual portable dvd player and the adapatability to my TV is great - my home dvd player died, we hooked this player up and it was perfect. ...more info

After using this product for the past week, I love its convenience
and reliability. I am looking forward to many presentations of our
Rhode Island Operation Lifesaver program on this unit. ...more info
- GREAT PRODUCT!
I love the DVD player. It has an 8 inch screen, is very portable, and has a great, clean picture. I travel a lot and it's great for plane travel, just pop a DVD in and enjoy. For me, it works better than a laptop, as you can carry it in a travel bag, throw it under the seat, and pull it out at your whim, rather than jhaving to get up and access your laptop. The control panel is easy, and I love the swivel screen. It makes it easy to watch in my hotel on the bed....more info
- High resolution, brilliant images
This product has a higher resolution LCD than most other cheapo models, and that translates to brilliant, crisp pictures. Well worth the extra money spent! Coupled with an excellent battery life, build quality, and style, and this player is definitely the one to beat. I love the video input/output feature as I use this as an auxiliary monitor for my Canon DSLR when it is mounted on a tripod and I can't look through the viewfinder. The only thing I wish this DVD player had is a Memory Stick Pro Duo slot so I can watch MP4s of shows exported from TiVo for my PSP. Hey Sony, are you listening?...more info
- Best DVD Player Ever!!!!!
This is the best dvd player, the battery life alone makes it worth every penny I paid for it. The picture and sound quality are phenomonal, I look forward to be able to take this on long trips. My old portable dvd player only had a 2hr battery life to it, maybe 2 1/2. I love the lcd screen, it makes it so there is no glare whatsoever and the swivel screen is also great. D.Coughlin
- great product!
This is a great product. It was realitivly inexpensive and worked great. Battery lasted long and it holds up well in heat and being tossed around, not on purpose. ...more info
- Perfect companion for roadtrips
We got this DVD player so our son could watch something while we drive - he hates being in the car. It's durable, despite several drops in the car, and very ease to use right out-of-the-box.
The battery time is good and the speakers are pretty clear sounding when not used with a headset.
For the price, you can't go wrong!...more info
- Excellent Value
I did a lot of research before deciding on this purchase, and I agree with many of the other reviewers that this is an excellent value for the money. The screen resolution makes for a clear, crisp picture, and the sound is loud and clear. I use this product almost daily, as I do not own a television or a computer, and rely on the Sony DVP-FX820 to be my primary source of film-related entertainment. Fortunately, the player is not overly sensitive to scratches and smudges on DVDs. I have retired my previous portable DVD player made by another manufacturer, and there is really no comparison. I believe this is by far the best quality player in its price class. It can be set to play full-size (rather than widescreen) DVDs with letter-boxing on the sides. While there are larger-screen DVD players available in a similar price range, the high-resolution screen on this one makes for a MUCH better picture quality. I cannot speak to the battery life as I have not used that feature (I use the player at home). The swivel screen is very nice, and the body of the player feels sturdy. The accompanying user guide is well-written and useful. I would highly recommend this player to others. Sony has earned my confidence as a consumer, and I am very likely to purchase other Sony products in the future....more info
- Very nice
This is a very nice player. Easy to use and a good price. The picture is clear, and the product is durable. I highly recommend it....more info
- Sony Portable DVD Player
Great so far. Setup was quick and easy - great picture quality - haven't checked out battery life yet, but I'm optimistic!...more info
- Overall good, some nit-picky stuff, though
The picture, sound and battery life, like all of the reviewers have stated are great. overall I am pleased with the unit, so I will point out the few annoyances...
there is no way to lock the case closed, and the "open" but is on the top near the power/hold switch, so more than a few times I have accidentally popped the unit open trying to put the thing on hold so my kid didn't start pushing buttons.
The other buttons (play/ff/rew/volume) are all flush with the case. However, they are NOT membrane. Therefore, on (several) occasions, the buttons get stuck and you have to massage them to have them pop back out.
Overall you cannot beat this unit for the price. It is tiny and totally portable. (As one reviewer said, if I wanted to lug around a laptop, then I would buy a lap top).
Overall, thumbs up....more info
- Great portable..if only it lasted.
I purchased this Sony FX820 based on the numerous great reviews it got on Amazon and I wasn't disappointed. My 2 1/2 daughter can open, change dvds, play and adjust the volume by herself. It even plays vcds (dvds from Asia). I love the clarity of the picture but the speakers could be improved. All in all I was very happy with this portable dvd player. That is until we started having problems with the screen. The picture wouldn't come on when we turned it on. There was sound and the dvd was playing but the screen was black. I'd have to fiddle with it; turn it on and off, switch from input to output, take the battery off and on before the picture would come back on. I've only had this player for 8 months. It's a big pain in the butt and I feel Sony should look into this issue for future model improvements. I plan to get another one soon...maybe not Sony this time around....more info
- Privacy and comfort...
I mainly got this because I needed something to be able to watch the movies that I like when the main t.v. and computer are both being used by others. I can put my earphones in, sit back at the table and watch my movies to my hearts desire, not disturbing anyone else or them disturbing me.
I love the fact that I could get it in pink...keeps the menfolk away from MY little DVD player..lol I see nothing wrong with the picture or sound quality, it's all alright with me!...more info
This product is good, but not great. For the money I paid, it should have been much better. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, but I've seen cheaper DVDs players that are just as good. More specifically:
Picture: Good, but has trouble with deep blacks. Even after adjusting the backlight and other settings, certain scenes in dark series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer are borderline unwatchable. There are several times per disk, I can't even see the characters.
Sound: Speakers don't create bass very well. Very tinny. But to be fair, if you're using headphones, the audio is terrific.
Features: There is no rewind or fast forward buttons on the player itself. To step through the disk, you need to use the remote. I found this borderline unacceptable as I now have to cart the remote around with me if I want to rewind and watch a funny scene again (which happens often when watching Mystery Science Theater 3000).
Form: The lid is hard to open because there is no latch or groove to put you fingers into. You have to kind of jam your fingers between the lid and base and pry it open. The notches in the disk drive itself aren't well positioned either. Some people grab the disk from the top, some from the bottom. I hope you're a bottom-grabber, because there is no notch on the topside of the disk in the drive.
Size: Not really the player's fault, but if you're coming from a laptop or even a 10" screen, this will seem really, really small. If you're stepping up from a smaller player, you'll probably think the screen is huge.
Finish: The glossy black gets smudges, grease, lint, dirt, and fingerprints on it in less then three seconds after you start using it. Some people don't ding a product for this because almost every high-tech product has this kind of finish on the body, but I say it's time we start dinging all products for this. Having to clean the screen's border every two seconds or putting up with seeing my fingerprints all over the device is not a choice I love making everytime I watch a disk.
I think that's it....more info
- Pretty in Pink
Very good fit & finish, quality, and ease of use. The 800 x 480 resolution is the highest available for portable DVD players I believe. Nice video and audio quality. Few things to note about this unit: 1st it had a constant yellow pixel on the left of screen just above the 1/2way point. 2nd I had to keep on selecting widescreen option (16:9) after powering on and/or putting in a new (4:3) movie in. 3rd Though Sony just came out with a 9 inch model, I think an 8 or 9 is just a touch too small for us - too bad a 10 or 10.2 inch doesn't exist with Sony. Lastly, I returned this unit and will probably opt for the 10.2 inch Coby for about $140 delivered....more info
- Nice unit
I like the unit. However, I would like to see the screen move in both direccions and I would like to have more options to change the picture size on the screen, even if the movie does not allow it. At 8 inches, with a picture size like a TV, it's hard to see....more info
- Sony designs great product ...
Looked at several different DVD Players on line and at the store. My criteria were battery life, picture quality and kid proof. 6 hrs of battery life, a great picture and the ability to spin the screen 180 to keep kids hands off the disc itself (if it's sitting on an airplane tray table) is a great feature.
Unfortunately the first one I bought had a problem within the first week with the carrier for the laser (stopped tracking) but Amazon replaced it immediately.
Replacement is working great....more info
- Good Product
Great DVD player, good picture and sound. Plenty loud in the car. I did have an issue with the location of the battery release and the ease in which the battery would slide off. Other than that, it worked well at keeping the kids entertained on our 5 hour drive blasting Yo Gabba Gabba and The Chipmunks. ...more info
- Great Quality. Can Play Video From Your iPod (w/attachments)!
This DVD player works fantastically! The battery lasts plenty long for plane rides and car trips (which is what we bought it for). The two headphone jacks are a great feature, the video quality is superb, the built-in speakers decently loud, and the controls and swivling screen are elegant and easy to use.
One of the key differentiating features in my view, however, is the support for both video OUT and video IN, unlike most other portable DVD players. This gives you the capability to, for example, watch video from your iPod if you purchase iPod Composite AV cables. Unfortunately, Sony has a proprietary RCA adapter (included) to save space on the DVD player itself, so you have to deal with an extra cable and an RCA coupler for the setup, but it's a small price to pay for the ability to leave your stacks of DVD's at home....more info
- Great quality
We have been using this player for about a month now.
We are happy with everything: great picture and sound quality. Picture is better than our big HDTV. I am a big fan of Sony and this was another great buy.
- Good quality in small package
I haven't taken this on a trip yet, but I really like what I see. The picture and sound quality is very good. I'll be using it for my workout DVDs, so I plan to use it often. I also got a travel case and headphones to go with the player - a nice convenient package....more info
- Love this DVD Player
MY GRANDCHILDERN LOVE THIS DVD PLAYER, TOOK TRIP TO GEORGIA AND NO PROBLEMS.TRY A DIFFERENT BRAND TOOK IT BACK TO STORE AND WENT TO AMAZON AND FOUND THIS SONY .....SONY MAKES A VERY GOOD PRODUCT....more info
- Great product
I needed a DVD player with a long lasting battery and I have been very pleased with this product. Furthermore the picture is clear and the price was quite reasonable for the quality of the player....more info
- Just go for it!!
The Sony DVP-FX820 8-inch Portable DVD Player is wonderful!! Because my home was flooded, I have been living in a hotel for the past 3+ months. The hotel is very upscale but the telly is terrible--and the stations they offer are even worse!! Between my generous family donating CD's and Netflex, I'm able to avail myself of a movie or sit-com when I want. (Oh yes!! I read--I have a Kindle that I love!)
I'm in my 70's and not necessarily gadget-literate, but his little portable is so easy to use. Basically plug in and go!! The pictue is crystal clear. It's light-weight and the controls are easy to manage with my arthritic fingers. I must admit, the sound coming directly from the speakers are not that great to my ear; I purchased Bose earphones and with them, the sound is truly fantastic!
I highly recommend this product, and I couldn't be happier with the performance--it's been a life-saver, believe me. It has earned each and every star!!...more info
- Excellence beyond.
Completely satisfied with my DVD player. Doesn't need outside speakers on this one; plenty of volume. The price was also very good and delivery excellent. Can't go wrong with this Sony DVP-FX820 8-inch portable. All my friends at work use and desire to purchase one down the road.
I would highly recommend this product to all....more info
- Top Notch!!!!!
Worth the price, the best picture, very fast controls.....my daughter is gonna love it. Ill just have to get my own. p.s it arrived two days early VERY NICE!...more info
- Sony FX820 - Excellent DVD player
I purchased this to replace an older unit with a failed rechargable LI-ion battery. The price was attractive on Amazon - not a lot more than a replacement external battery pack. But...the picture is a fantastic improvement over the old technology!
I have played more than 30 DVDs and have had no problems. The controls on the display panel are a bit confusing but the remote is very user friendly. The battery will play about 3 movies without recharge. Not the longest out there but plenty long enough for my needs - even international travel.
I'd recommend this unit with no reservations....more info
- So far, so good
We've had this player for a few weeks and used it a few times. So far, the performance has been good, as well as the durability with a 3-year old using it. The screen could be bigger, but the picture is pretty good. Wish it came with a bag or case to mount on a seatback in the car....more info
- Great Size!
Any bigger and this would be more like a laptop than a travel DVD player. We have used it several times and while the sound quality could be a little bit better, overall it is a great little travel media item....more info
- Love It!
I am so pleased with my little red DVD player.
The picture is great and I truly love it.
The battery last and it is easy to use.
Thank you!...more info
- Great player - Sony delivers again!
Compact, great picture, long battery life. Looked at lots of players and Sony definitely has the best features and quality. Spend a little more and get one that you'll actually enjoy. Works best with headphones....more info
