    Comments about Panasonic Black 8.5" Portable DVD Player:

    I like this DVD player but I have never gotten anywhere close to 6 hours of playback from the battery. The longest playback I have gotten was around 1 hr 45 minutes - not even enough to finish the movie I was watching. Very disappointed since I bought this model specifically for the long battery life. It is not worth lugging onto a plane for a long trip because the battery dies too quickly!

      Comments about Panasonic Black 8.5" Portable DVD Player:

      I have had experiences with three. The other two were not only portable they were disposable as well!! The DVD player is the bomb. I use it and abuse it and it just keeps on playing.

      Flight saver

      By 

      from Minnesota

      Comments about Panasonic Black 8.5" Portable DVD Player:

      This is by far one of the best purchases we've made for our toddler. Great for flights and it was worth it for the 6 hour battery. The specs are on target, you can get through at least 2 full kids flicks which should get you cross country. Charge up on a layover and you are good to go! Highly recommend.

        We will use this dvd player everytime we travel by air! It's small, but the picture and sound are spectacular! It's light enough to go in a backpack for the kids. We especially like how the screen can tilt and fold down flat on top of the unit!

        You should give the option to purchase a car bracket for this DVD player. I had to search the web to find one. I had purchased one a while back that came with the bracket.
