Not the one shown on website

By rainy

from seattle, wa

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

from Mobile, AL

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!

The best we've ever owned!

By Kpals10

from Chandler, AZ

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

We've owned a few portable DVD players and so far this is the best we've had. The picture is great and the volume is the loudest I've ever heard on a portable player. We drive across country a couple of times a year and sometimes I let my child watch movies in bed. I've only had this a week but so far I'm thrilled with my choice. I would definitely recommend this product.

Not DVD in Picture

By halfpint419

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

This is NOT a swivel screen DVD. The picture on item is not what you get! the 980 is bulky and does not swivel. The picture is of the 930 (which I owned before and loved!) Sony needs to change the picture!

Great little cd player

By AndyShedd

from Portland, ME

Pros

  • Great Sound quality

Cons

  • None that I can see

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

    Be sure to use the Sound Enhancement "1" setting for full-range sound. With no sound setting selected the music is thin and weak, probably to extend the battery life. I pair the player with Sony's MDR-SA1000 and the Sound "2" setting and the playback is amazing. For $30 you can't go wrong. Get one before Sony discontinues portable CD players!

    Product just "OK"

    By TucsonTerpFan

    from Ariz

    Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

    CDs play well on the unit; however, the AM radio reception is very weak. Even local AM stations don't "come-in" very well. Sound of unit is good on FM, but, again, the AM radio feature on the unit I received is not a "plus." I bought it to replace an older unit #different brand# and the radio reception was not equal to the 10 year old CD radio player it replaced.

    It has resume

    By wrw60

    from San Francisco

    Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

    I was glad to find this product had resume since I bought it for books on tape. You hit stop and the power goes off. You hit play and it's right back were you left off.

    SONY WALKMAN CD PLAYER D-EJ011 REVIEW

    By Computerhobbyist

    from NY

    Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

    Off the charts studio sound quality, digital Mega Bass sound system, sturdy build quality, attractive appearance, shuffle, repeat, and bookmark program play modes. Just another excellent product from Sony. The Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player is without question the absolute best single function portable CD player that Sony offers. The Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player offers an extensive feature set. Those features include a 1-bit D/A converter for awesome sound, 3.5mm headphone output jack, skip-free electronic shock protection, digital volume control, LCD display, battery level indicator, automatic shut-off, hold switch, CD-R/RW playback, play, pause, stop, forward skip, and reverse skip CD transport controls. The Sony Walkman CD Player also utilizes a user selectable Automatic Volume Limiter System (AVLS) volume distortion reduction system. All of my CD’s sound wonderful on this portable with clear vocals, and well defined bass performance. I have not been able to make this Sony CD player skip during playback under any circumstances, with the shock protection enabled or disabled. This Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD player is a great companion for the morning jog, long walks, trips to the beach, late night at home private listening sessions, or when you’re sitting poolside taking a sip from that refreshing cool glass of iced tea. Please remember that in order to achieve audiophile quality sound reproduction from this unit, you should disable the electronic shock protection system during non-active use. The supplied ear-clip headphones offer very decent sound quality. However, the audio playback of this unit can be improved upon in my experience with an upgrade to the Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB500 headphones. The Extra Bass headphones produce copious amounts of detailed dynamic bass when combined with the playback accuracy of the Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD Player. The Sony Walkman CD Player is powered by 2 AA batteries or it can be powered with an optional AC-E45A AC power adapter. Customers should be aware that the Sony D-EJ011 Walkman CD player does not offer an FM/AM tuner, MP3 CD playback, or remote controller. Good Luck. Enjoy.

      SONY WALKMAN CD PLAYER D-FJ041 REVIEW

      By Computerhobbyist

      from NY

      Comments about Sony 9" Color Screen Portable DVD Player:

      Splendid audio reproduction, digital Mega Bass sound system, excellent build quality, attractive appearance, shuffle, repeat, resume, and bookmark program play modes. Just another excellent product from Sony. The Sony Walkman CD Player D-FJ041 is undeniably an extraordinary portable CD player in terms of sound reproduction, performance, features, and value that Sony offers. This Sony Walkman CD player offers an extensive feature set. Those features include a 1-bit D/A converter for stellar sound, 3.5mm headphone output jack, skip-free electronic shock protection, digital volume control, LCD display, battery level indicator, automatic shut-off, hold switch, digital FM/AM Tuner, 30 FM/AM station presets, FM headphone cord antenna, built-in AM ferrite bar antenna, radio on, radio off/band select controls, CD-R/RW playback, play, pause, stop, forward skip, and reverse skip CD transport controls. The Sony Walkman CD Player D-FJ041 also utilizes a user selectable Automatic Volume Limiter System (AVLS) volume distortion reduction system. All of my CD’s sound wonderful on this portable with clear vocals and well defined bass performance. I am able to enjoy all of my favorite music, sports, and talk radio stations from the dual band tuner. Radio reception is always impressive on this unit. I have not been able to make this portable CD player skip during playback under any circumstances with the shock protection enabled or disabled. This Sony Walkman CD player D-FJ041 is a great companion for the morning run, long walks on the boardwalk, trips to the seashore, at home private jam sessions, or when you’re sitting poolside taking a sip from that refreshing cool glass of fruit punch. Please remember that in order to achieve audiophile quality sound reproduction from this unit, you should disable the electronic shock protection system during non-active use. The supplied ear-clip headphones offer mediocre sound quality. However, the audio playback of this unit can be improved upon in my experience with an upgrade to the Sony Studio Monitor Series MDR-V600 headphones. These Studio Monitor headphones produce generous amounts of detailed dynamic bass when combined with the playback accuracy of the Sony D-FJ041 Walkman CD Player. The Sony Walkman is powered by 2 AA cell batteries or can be powered with an optional AC-E45A AC power adapter. Please note that the Sony Walkman CD player D-FJ041 does not offer MP3 CD playback or a remote controller. Good Luck. Enjoy.
