In such a scenario, you have 2 choices: either stare out of the window or pop in your favorite movie and watch the hours fly by. I would rather take option 2. With a portable DVD player, you just might have the choice. You don’t need to be taking regular long trips though in order to own one. In almost any situation, a portable DVD player will come to your rescue from boredom. One thing I love about them is their portability. They are small enough to carry on camping trips, on flights and literally wherever you feel you will need one.
DVD players are not limited to playing just DVDs. These devices let you play music, preview pictures and watch just about anything stored in digital format. Just like there are many cell phones on the market, portable DVD players have also seen their share of the market. Each has distinct features and specifications. The Sony DVP, for example, has a long battery life, great picture quality with light features while the Toshiba SDP has a sleek look and heavily-packed with features. Thus, while shopping for a portable DVD player, be sure to keep in mind what exactly you want out of a DVD player and use that as the checklist for your purchase.
There is a general criteria though that you need to use when you are looking for, not just a DVD player, but a portable DVD player. This includes the weight, screen size, playable media types and memory card slot. If you are going to be carrying the player, you need the lightest player you can find. The screen size should also be reasonably large to avoid eye strain. If you are the kind of person who likes having all your files in one place, then perhaps you also prefer opening them using one device. Thus, a DVD player that plays many different video, music and image formats is most recommended. You pretty much want to access to all your files on the go and if they are inaccessible, what is the point? Most of us use memory cards to save data. You need to ensure that your portable DVD player has a slot where you can use one of these. By taking the time to consider the above together with your personal functionality checklist, you will be in a better position to make an informed decision when it comes to purchasing portable DVD players.
