Why Buy a Portable DVD Player?

A portable DVD player is a great option when going on long trips, but many people are discovering their value in more situations. A potable DVD player is perfect for keeping you from being bored in almost any situation. They are small enough to be taken on flights, camping trips and any place where you might find yourself waiting for a while.

Portable DVD players usually operate on their own power supply, meaning that you don’t have to be near a power outlet to use them. Simply charge it before you leave and your set for enjoying hours of your favorite videos.

Portable DVD players are able to play DVDs but they can often play other types of media, like images and mp3 music. Depending on what kind of media you want to use, you can play it all no matter where you travel.

Portable DVD Players: What to Look For

Picking a portable DVD player is a little different than buying regular DVD players. You don’t have to worry as much about integrating your portable DVD player with your home entertainment system because you’re more likely to use the portable player away. So we used different criteria to rank the portable DVD players that we reviewed. Here’s how we picked the top ten:

Weight
If you’re going to be carrying the portable DVD player around, it’s important to get the lightest one you can.

Screen Size
Even though the screens on portable DVD players are smaller than a TV, you still want to get the largest screen you can so you don’t have to strain your eyes.

Playable Media Types
Many portable DVD players can display more than just DVDs. Try to get one that can also play other video formats, image formats and music formats so that you can play whatever you want while still on the go.

Memory Card Slot
Since some of your other media files may not be on a disc, it can be helpful to have a memory card slot so you can carry more information without having it burned to a disc.

With all this information, you can make an informed decision about which portable DVD player is best for you.
