Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

I ordered this for my 91-year-old mom who needed something easy to operate to watch her DVDs and listen to CDs. She has trouble with remotes and the player allows her to use it easily. It comes with other options that I'm sure work well, but were not needed in her case. Very satisfied customer.

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

I have had many makes of portable DVD players over the years, all of which have had either a distorted picture or very bad sound. This model from Sony has restored my faith in DVD players....great picture and excellent sound. An extra plus - it's multi-region!

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

Purchased this portable DVD player for christmas to use for my workout videos (we do insanity, t25, etc. ). Before ,My wife and I would have to use the living room tv and DVD player because of the space needed for our workout. It was a hassle moving the coffee table and couch every time, so I purchased this portable DVD player so that I could workout anywhere that had space, even outdoors. Glad I did ! First off, I was a bit concerned about the size of the screen and if I could see the video from a distance. No problem at all, the HD is very clear and some times we may have a group with a person around 40 foot away and the picture is very clear and you can see all the moves of the exercise. The other concern I had would be the sound and if the volume would be loud enough to hear or would I have to buy additional speakers, not the case . Sony really stepped it up with this one. Very load and very clear, even when we use it outdoors, ( we have used this player at the park, in the gym and in my back yard on the pool deck, this list will be sure to grow) I have seen other people join in from far way, (sound can't be beat ). but indoors I need to turn it down a bit. Another great perk is the remote control, being able to control the video from a distance really helps. Also the battery life is not a issue for me, my workouts last from 30 minutes to an hour , depending on the DVD and exercise I'm using, So 4 hours of battery life is more than enough. I know I have only owned this sony portable DVD player for about a month and I only use it for exercise but I really love it for my needs. The freedom to play my workout DVD anywhere has opened a new level of energy and excitement . This summer we are going on a 14 day cruise, can't wait to take it with us. Before, we go on a lot of trips we would have to rely on memory of the workout , not anymore, I could not be happier with this purchase.

Not the one shown on website

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

I ordered this online based on the photo and was excited until it came and saw that the FX980 *DOES NOT* have the swivel head as shown on the photo and is exactly the same control set up as the cheaper FX780. Poor customer service too because to return this I have to pay the return shipping.

Very satisfied

By Fiftysomething

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

This player works great. After trying the players that are still available in stores and getting frustrated with all the stop/start of poor skip protection this player is a welcome relief. I listen to recorded books and hope players will still be available for some time to come even if they are becoming obsolete for music. This is one of the best I've used. The battery compartment is a little difficult because of its placement inside but I wouldn't trade it off for lesser performance. I recommended it to a friend and now she has one too!
