People who like to travel tend to enjoy the portable DVD player. Now that they are made with very good picture quality and at least a five hour battery life, enjoyment of your favorite DVD’s is still great. Couples who plan on traveling to places where TV reception can be a bit iffy know that they can still enjoy watching DVD’s that they bring with them or they can go to the local video store and rent newer up-to-date ones. Most portable DVD players are simple to operate, very sturdy, give you a good picture quality along with ample viewing time.
Some people are opposed to the portable players because most weigh in at about three pounds making them a bit heavy to tote around and the sound quality is not always that good. The picture quality might be great but when it comes to the sound, but can be a bit rough. Many of the manufacturers make the portable DVD player so that it will only accept their adapter causing the user a little bit of grief if they need to replace it while on their trip.
College students like the unit even with this problem because they find getting a new adapter on campus is not that difficult. It is very advisable to invest in a cigarette-lighter adapter especially if you are traveling a lot. It really does not hurt to have an extra battery just in case you plan on using your unit for an extended period of time. You wouldn’t want to find that you’re watching your favorite movie and your player dies.
