Portable DVD Player

My nephew wants a portable DVD player, I'm in charge of buying it but I know nothing about them other than they play DVDs. Is there a brand I should stay away from and is there a price range or are they all over the place depending on the options of the machine?

Re: Portable DVD Player

I have a magnavox 7" (made by mintek....really Mintek 1710). Got it at wally world a couple of year ago....about $120. Plays great and has lasted thru lots of use. Don't see it a wally world anymore, but it is at amazon.

Re: Portable DVD Player

I'm looking at one, too, for our upcoming trip to Japan. How are these things on battery power? Can you get spare batteries?

Re: Portable DVD Player

The rechargeable battery that came with mine gets about 4 hours....and takes about that long to recharge. Replacements of the original battery are pricey. I bought this

as a spare. Works fine.
