Confirmed purchaser Bargain hunter

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great battery life, good picture. Decent value for money
Bad points:
Construction is rather plasticy and clunky but okay if you're not intending to batter it around too much. Although the 5 hour battery life is great, it is annoying that you can't recharge whilst playing (unlike earlier Phillips models). The remote control sensor is also screen so that if you have it plugged into an external TV screen you can't close the lid and use the remote. Also when plugged into an external screen, you still get sound from the DVD unit as well as from the TV, so there is a rather annoying echo (again unlike earlier models).
