  • not quite region free
    I like this dvd player but there are a few issues.
    1. will not play every dvd I have, "Wrong regional disk".(My regular region free dvd plays them all.) Philips does not make it region free so I am trying to resolve the problem wit third party that made it region free. 2. there is not a car case made for it. I did get the case logic 7-9" car case and made it work with a little velcro on the strap across the top. It is working out well so far. Good price for what you get if it plays your dvds....more info

    I ride the train for 2 hous daily. My iPod fits inside this unit, charges it and keeps it protected. This player has all the right features: 1. Video out to TV 2.Charges iPod in it's dock 3. acts as desktop stereo, digital picture frame (cf slot), iPod speakers, dvd player, divx player, video monitor (Line in), and ipod video screen. 3. It has a easel to use it on your desk. 4. It plays all of your podcasts in a list without having to select and hit play each time to select the next video. 5. It looks like a regular dvd player, which may or may not deter criminals. (I'd rather leave this on my desk than an iPhone, which fits inside it). 6. It has 2 headphone jacks. This is my favorite gadget of 2008, except for one small detail. The power switch is too easy to hit accidentally. Other than that, true perfection. Stick it on your dashboard and drive to your next multi car collision! I'll be on the train!...more info
    The player comes with a neoprene sleeve, a car lighter adapter, a regular plug for the wall, and cords to attach it to your television or VHS/DVD/Stereo/Video Game player.(Basically an AV jack.)

    There is a little stand for the DVD Player that almost looks like you will be ejecting the battery so a lot of people miss it. (I've seen complaints in other reviews for this item that said it doesn't have a stand. But it does.)

    It plays my DVD's from Britain, Asia, and the U.S. switching easily between the screen formats without distortion. The picture is very clear as well and looks great.

    I also put in an SD card from my sister's camera. If you have taken photos and are going through the slide show, be aware that if the photos are vertical, you can turn them but the picture will be cropped and the full photo does not show. Also, it did play some of the MVI videos from the SD card but not all of them for some reason.

    It comes with various holders for various iPods. I have a 1G iPod Touch and it works great in the dock. When I bought it I didn't realize that the same dock holds the remote too so if you're traveling with it just pop your remote into the dock and close it and you can carry it along without worrying about losing it. You could do the same with your iPod if you wanted to but it can carry only one or the other -- not both at the same time.

    The player allows you to play the youtube features and any videos, music, or photos from your iPod. You just work your iPod from the dock or use the remote and it comes up on the screen.

    The plastic isn't super high quality but I think they built it that way to make it lighter.

    The one thing I wish it had is a USB port. But otherwise it does the job and does it well.

  • Philips 8.5 in portable DVD player with iPod dock
    It's awesome. I can play all the media in my 2nd and 1st gen iPod Touches and my 1st gen iPod classic. You can keep your iPod inside the player and just control it from the player's interface....more info
  • Acceptable
    Overall this device works great. I bought it for long trips and camping. The max volume needs to be higher. The screen images need to be brighter. I found that I have to press firmly on the buttons to get them to work. The remote control works better. I don't like that there is no flip open cover to protect the screen or that the stand in the back is offset to one side . The slide out cartridge for the ipod and remote sometimes sticks and seems to be poorly designed. Other than that, the price was decent. I guess you get what you pay for. I would recommend this to someone who just wants something to watch movies on in a quiet setting without spending a whole lot of money ...more info
