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.

Only downer, screen doesnt swivel like the previous one. Durable, surviving a 3 year old.
Batteries could be made ...
from Ewa Beach, HI
Batteries could be made to last longer, would not last a whole flight
Colour me very happy
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!
Great portable DVD player for the price.
from East Central Pennsylvania
This SONY portable DVD player has a great picture and really good sound. The included remote makes it easy to change volume and to search.
from South Florida
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
from seattle, wa
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The best we've ever owned!
from Chandler, AZ
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not DVD in Picture
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!

I bought the 7" for a friend and she loves it so I bought the 9" for me which has much better resolution. It is terrific. I love the fact that it remembers where you are on the disc after shut off. Good job Sony
