Jack, Glasgow These DVD's are great

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good quality picture and resumes to the last scene if the power is off. The internal battery is great as the kids can continue watching them once the car is turned off - gives me time to bring the shopping in without them under my feet!
Bad points:
The brackets are quite awkward to attach to the back of the headrests in one of my cars but once it is on it stays there.

Manufacturer's Description

The colour LCD display brings images to life, showing off your treasured photos, favourite movies and music with the same ‘real life’ rich detail and vibrant colours as high quality prints. The 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio is standard for universal to high-definition digital television. A native 16:9 aspect ratio means video display without bars at the top and bottom of the picture and without the quality loss than comes from scaling, altering an image to fit on a different screen size.

The stereo speakers provide quality sound and allow you to listen freely. Enjoy music anytime, anywhere, with built-in stereo speakers that allow the convenience and enjoyment of music playback simply by unplugging the headphones.

The Philips Portable DVD player is compatible with most DVD and CD discs available in the market. DVD, DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW, (S)VCD and CD – all of them can play on the DVD player. DVD+/-R is a shorthand term for a DVD drive that can accept both of the common recordable DVD formats. Likewise, DVD+/-RW handles both common rewritable disc types.

This Philips player comes with a compact built-in rechargeable battery for long-lasting power. Up to 2 hours of continuous movie, photo and music playback enjoyment can be achieved on a single charge. Just plug in the power cable to recharge the player – it’s that simple.

Play JPEG photos that are saved on your disc. Relive your favourite moments with family and friends anytime you want!

2 sets of earphones included for personal enjoyment.

To enjoy entertainment on the go, why not bring your portable DVD player from home on the road with you? A unique Car Mount system ensures ease-of-use, with a quick-release arm that facilitates easy removal of the player when not in use. You can bring the portable DVD player with you, leaving just the Mount behind in the car.

The DVD-Video player remembers where you last stopped watching both if it is powered off directly and if the power supply is discontinued. If you did not change to another disc, your player will resume play where you last stopped the movie just by reloading the disc—making your life a lot easier!
