Good points:
The Picture & sound quality for the DVD playback is excellent, when our area recieves the Digital & Freeview reception I will be able to judge the quality & recpetion.

This was primarily bought for use on camping & flights on short aeroplane trips.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is a fantastic dvd tv player, the picture is brilliant with vibrant colour, it also has a wide viewing angle, so as two three or four people can watch at the same time without loss of picture. I love the way you can watch movies from a ussb memory stick, the picture quality will depend on the quality you download or convert.

I would highly recomend this product it is very good.
Bad points:
I find it very difficult to find DIVX movies to transfer to my USB stick to play on it, I can't find any where to purchase them either.

The other problen I found is that you can not use the player with the AC cord, in other words you can not plug it into the mains and watch it, you can only use the mains lead to charge the battery. I wish they could resolve this problem.

The other problem is the battery, I have used the palyer a few times now and the battery life is not 5 hours as they say, it is more like three hours.

Good points:
The picture is amazing for such a small device, far better than the alternatives that I considered. The TV function is a fabulous addition and the reception on the tiny arial is excellent.
Bad points:
Often there is a rattling noise from the disk, which at low volumes can be distracting.

Good points:
As is usual with Sony products the DVD/Freeview player is exceptional in both build quality and performance.
The only niggle i have with the product is the position of the Aerial input socket,in my opinion this is completely wrong it should be towards the rear of the player instead of the front.
