This very thoughtful product. Needs some improvement in Quality but looking forward into next version. Price is good & features are good.
Looking forward next release.

Glad I bought it

Pros: many good features
Cons: attaching the battery pack a challenge for me.
I wanted to show some photos on CD-R to a computerless friend. She had 4 DVD players and none of them would play CD-R's. I bought this Maxx on clearance just to show the CD's and really liked it's many features and power sources to choose from. I haven't had it long enough to tell how it holds up and I did buy an additional warrenty on it as Portable DVD's in general don't have good reps on dependability and longevity. Can't wait to use it to watch videos while traveling and camping. AC-DC, rechargable, AV, data cable, SD card slot, etc. Once you see those photos digitally you'll never go back!

Good Purchase

Pros: plays mini-dvds, rear loading of dvd, sturdy stand feature using the battery as the stan
Cons: directions could be written more clearly, cloth case doesn't accommodate the battery
This DVD player provides good sound quality and picture quality. It plays mini-DVDs from a Sony DVD camcorder, which was the main feature after quality of picture and sound that I was looking for. It's battery life is acceptable especially for my purpose of showing short DVD clips taken with the camcorder. Another main selling point was the fact that the DVD loads from the back so children do not have access to that and the device can be easily viewed at close distances such as on a student's wheelchair tray. The battery is the stand for the device and this is a sturdy feature vs. plastic 'legs' or wire 'legs' to make it stand up. The screen size is a good size for a portable device. All-in-all it was a good purchase and I will be purchasing more for my school especially if they go on sale or have a rebate again.
