Just received both of my portable DVD players yesterday (yes, I ordered two and I will tell you why later). I opened them and plugged them in for charging overnight. This morning I gave them a run through at the breakfast table. My little girl had her eyes glued to the screen!!! They are AWESOME!!! The picture is great, the sound is good and they are so easy to operate. I used the UV cable (purchased separately) to connect the two and could watch the same movie on both screens; that was just plugging them together and pushing the MODDE button that is right on the control panel, how easy! I brought the remote out to see how that would work with two units playing the same movie. I was able to change the volume on each unit with the same remote by simply pointing at the unit I wanted the change on; how easy is that!! It looks like I can control both units with the same remote by just pointing it at the unit I want to change, I won't have to use both remotes!!
I spent considerable time researching the portable DVD players before my purchase. I purchase two of these and so far I am thrilled with my decision!! Others in the same price point (this unit x 2 on sale ~$140) only offered one unit with a "dummy" unit and you could not play them individually if you wanted to. Other units were smaller in size, some where not high enough picture quality and others were just way too expensive for what they are being used for.
I will be using these in our truck for my toddler to watch movies when we travel for long distances; this is only a couple of times per year. I would have had to spend a lot more money to buy a dual unit with separate functionality or have only one real unit to play on. I found this unit and doubled up to get my Dual Portable DVD Players. The Best Bang for my Buck!!!
Keep in mind this is a DVD player and not a Blu-ray player. as long as you understand that and don't have the expectations of it playing in 1080p, then you will love this DVD player just like we do. It's small, compact and lightweight. Yeah I could let one of my kids use my laptop but it weighs a lot more and I'd rather not take the chance from one of my kids breaking out after spilling something on it. The picture quality on this is good and the screen can be viewed it angles and the picture remains very good. So it's not a cheap screen. It's perfect for road trips and keeps the kids from asking are we there yet? The only downside to this is that the gloss black does show fingerprints. So you may want to consider a different color but we like the black. And the fingerprints wipe off easily with a wet wipe. We definitely recommend this DVD player.
I was pleasantly surprised. The audio actually scared me with how loud it was when i turned it on. Tiny speakers, but tons of sound. The screen size and color are great. This is going to be a great addition to our road trip happening soon. Not to mention if the hotels dont have good cable, we can plug our DVD player in with the cords provided and watch all the movies we want. Also the packaging is stronger than i have ever seen. I may use it as an added safety for traveling. Very pleased!
I didn't think I would be purchasing yet another portable DVD player again with all the available digital streaming options out there, however I travel a good deal and find the internet speeds at many hotels to be lacking making streaming almost impossible (or irritating to say the least). I bought a large scree DVD player earlier this year which has worked great, but I wanted a smaller one as well.
After some research I purchased this 12.5 " ieGeek model. The price was right and it supports a lot of file formats including: CD, DVD, DVD + R(-R), DVD + RW(-RW), VCD, SVCD-R(RW), CD-R(RW). As well as multi-media files VOB, AVI, MPEG, MP3, WMA, JPEG using either the USB input or the SD card slot.
The DVD player arrived well packed with no issues. The player looks sharp, though the gloss finish is definitely a fingerprint magnet. The compact remote includes the button cell battery which is already installed. The remote has a lot of functions built in, but is not back-lit and the buttons are small, so it might be easier to control the DVD player using the on-board controls in a dark environment. (see pic)
As for the picture quality, I am very pleased. The screen is crisp, and clear with viewing angles are generous and the screen rotates up and down and back and forth easily using a single center hinge.
The stereo sound from the DVD player is also decent. Even in a noisy environment I can still watch and hear a movie with the volume in the mid-range setting.
One of the features I like is after turning the DVD/Multimedia player off and then back on the DVD will begin playing where you left off.
This DVD player can also be used to listen to CD's, or MP3's on a flash drive or SD card.. The sound from this DVD player cannot match that of a full blown stereo system, but it still sounds pretty good. I can also turn off the LCD while playing music to extend the battery life.
I have just started using this DVD/Multimedia player, but so far I am happy with it and look forward to taking this player with me on the road. (12-volt charger is included.) I also look forward to checking out some of the multimedia capabilities. Once I do so I will update this review.
Just used this on a six hour flight and it played 2 long movies 2 hours plus and I had music on a SD card and it played all of this with out loosing power. It was used both ways on this trip and I was glad I had this and very impressed with the battery life it made our trip go by fast. The only thing I see that could have been made better is the door switch for th CD player, seems to be a little flimsy. Other than that very happy with this player and reasonably priced.
Nice portable DVD player perfect for camping in our trailer. This DVD player has some great features such has a 5 hour play time when fully charged up which is great for tent camping when no electric is available. Another great thing about this unit is not only does it play DVD's but you can also use SD cards to watch playback from digital video cameras which is really cool. We got digital video cameras and then at the end of the day would show off some of the footage we got which was really fun. Overall pretty impressed with this DVD player and it's a great value for the price if you travel or camp a lot.
After Much Research I ordered this to do my exercise dvds while on vacation. The player arrived a day early, Yay. I read the instruction booklet(skimpy), followed battery charging directions. When full battery light came on I put in a dvd to test the picture/sound quality...Nothing. Tried the whole process Again...Still Nothing. Plugged the player into an outlet & it worked Great. The Picture was bright & clear as was the sound. Brought it with me anyway, thinking maybe the younger folks I would be with could see if I was doing something incorrect. They looked & tried...Still Nothing when trying to make it work on Battery Power. Extremely Dissapointing!!! Especially as I also had no way to play cds during my down time. Have returned player & am awaiting extra warranty reimbursement.
I ordered 2 of these for a long trip we were taking, they arrived 2 days later and 1 did not work. PANIC because i didn’t want my kids fighting over it, the whole point was to give them 1 each to keep them busy. I messaged the seller, all the while my husband telling me I’d never get a new one in 2 days...lo and behold within minutes they had sent a new one, which arrived just in time. Brilliant customer service! Onto the product, its a great size. The picture is very clear (even old movies play clearly). The power lasted right on about 5 hours, also came with car charges. The sound is clear. I would buy these again and they were a life saver on our trip
I just bought this ieGeek 12.5 inch Portable DVD Player with 360° Swivel Screen and I'm very happy with it! I love that is swivels 360 degrees. I also love that not only can i take it in any room of the house to do my exercise video or watch a movie while I cook, but I can also take it in the car. I travel with my grandchildren every summer and so this is going to come in real handy to keep them occupied while I'm driving. If you're thinking of a portable DVD player I highly recommend this one! And it's an affordable price as well! You can't go wrong with this one.
Quit working after five minutes. And I had bought it for a trip so I tested it when it arrived and it worked so I put it up to save for surprise for kids. Then they got them turned them on so happy only to have the sound cut in and out bc of the headphone cord spinning. We’ve had the headphones for a year and they’ve worked great. Then the whole thing quit working. I ordered two and one came straight out of package turned on trying to read a dvd that wasn’t in there. So I think I got sent someone else’s defective one. By time I made it back from beach the window was closed to return and I messaged seller asking for a repair and have been ignored. But when the package arrives it says for a five star review get a head rest holder for free. So beware the five stars. I did it thinking mine was good and when I told them that they forgot my second head rest oh they responded to that. But ask them to fix something ignored.
