great 9'' swivel portable DVD player
Got this for a birthday gift for our granddaughter. Perfect size and great for car too. And the price was great too.

I love it. Being able to turn the screen is great. Only had for a few weeks, however it is a super source of entertainment when I go away or outside on my balcony, For movies or music is all I have used it for.

Very easy to get started even for someone who is not a techno wizard
Easy to carry around - long life battery - very good sound and picture quality

Decent value for money
This Fluid DVD player plays DVDs, files on data DVDs, files on USB, and CDs. If there is a disc in the player, it automatically plays when the player is turned on. The video quality is very good, but it has horizontal lines and so it isn't quite HD quality. It comes with two power cables: a car adapter and a wall plugin, and also TV connector cables. I forgot a power cable one day and was pleased that it had some battery power.
Some things I don't like about it:
-it plays files with this codec: Xvid MPEG-4 Codec (Xvid), but does not play DIV3 MPEG-4 V3, or Xvid MPEG-4 (DX50).
-player buttons are blocky and loud when you click
-button layout is not intuitive - fast forward/rewind and play are in different sections (the last two points apply to the player, not the remote)
-does not store the last play location, unlike most non-portable DVD players which start from the last scene you left it at
-fast forward up to 16X, often not fast enough when it loses the last play location
-it has three video settings: two for 4:3 and one 16:9, but it only shows 16:9 DVDs correctly. The 4:3 DVD I played looked stretched no matter what setting I used.
Despite all these nitpicks, I'm happy with what I bought for the price I paid. It works well enough for me.
