I admit that I'm something of an analyst -- meaning that when I buy just about anything electronic (or a car) I want to know everything about every option to identify the best product. I read all the technical reviews, user reviews, etc. from multiple websites (including Abt!) We purchased Panasonic LS92 Portable DVD player because we wanted: (A) a slim profile, (b) low weight, (c) large screen, and (d) a LOOOONG battery life -- but not in that order. In my view the battery life on a portable DVD is king. If you're like me and have 3 kids; a 3-4 hour battery capacity is not going to cut it especially if you're on a long day of travel (airplanes, layovers, cars, etc.). Now its not that I want my kids glued to a screen -- but sometimes one has concede that "she gets the first movie" so "he can watch the 2nd movie" and a short battery wouldn't cut it and that's assuming 100% charge.We have never been disappointed by the Panasonic -- we took it to Turks * Caicos, Belize, Virgin Islands, California, Alaska, Zurich, Amsterdam -- it was a terrific work horse.When its not on the road it mounts easy to a base that hands on the rear of the front seat for long car trips. The main user of this device is in fact my 7 year old son who has special needs -- point being, the controls are simple, intuitive, and its durable enough to absorb is sometimes less than gentle handling.Now this is the 2nd one we purchased because the first one "bit the farm" on the trip to Alaska -- there were no witnesses but the babysitter insists its fell from a table and hit coffee table on the way down in such a way it weakened the joint between the screen and the 'neck' that attaches it to the base. The fact it lasted us for so long, on so many trips -- back in backpacks that were dropped and luggage that was checked and tossed around -- leaves me thinking its pretty durable. Bottom line -- I can say I'd buy it again, because I did!.

Almost a great product
This would be a great item if the volumne range was higher. No way to hear sound while driving unless ear phones are used. This doesn't work well with a 2 & 3...Read complete review
This would be a great item if the volumne range was higher. No way to hear sound while driving unless ear phones are used. This doesn't work well with a 2 & 3 year old watching the same movie. Sound can't be heard in the same room with people talking when used in the home.Very disappointing.

I gave this as a gift to my mom, who loves watching dvds on the go. She is a busy-body and is constantly moving around in the house, and this is perfect for her to do the things she does while watching her videos at the same time. She also takes many trips and says it's perfect for long flights without having to worry about running out of power. Other perks includes 9" widescreen yet compact and light.

So far the portable DVD player is working great. My son figured out how to use it immediately. My husband is taking it on his business trips so he can use his workout dvds.
