There seems to be hundreds of different portable DVD players out there, however for the most part they all have the flip-up, laptop kind of design. I find that this is a really neat and better design for a portable DVD player as it reminds me of a portable CD player, except with a screen on the top.
It’s great design lets you hold it right in the palm of your hand so you can watch your DVDs wherever you go in a much more compact and hand-held way. The plastic case is even padded with a rubber frame so it’s easy to grip, making it perfect for carrying around.
The screen is 4 1/5″ so you’re getting much better quality than watching video on an iPod Video. You can even use it as a traditional DVD player if you want since it comes with AV cables for connecting it to a TV.
You can even use this gadget as your portable music player as well. It can play CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs and MP3s.
The rechargeable battery can last for about 2 1/2 hours, perfect for watching a movie. Also included is an AC adapter and car power port adapter so you can keep on watching if you’re near an outlet of some kind.
I think this is a much better alternative to other forms of portable DVD players if you’re looking for a more personal and compact approach. You can order one from Hammacher for $129.95.
