      Disadvantages

      Not a bad system if you can get over its minor flaws.

      Going on holiday a few times a day I decided to pick up this Sony Portable for a bit of fun on the plane. Managing to get it for under £100 I was pretty happy. The battery was said to be good and with the spec stating 5 hours that was enough to get me to my destination on the plane. You can always buy a spare battery and carry that about with you if 5 hours is enough for you. They are thin enough not to take up a lot of space. If you are using it in the car you can also charge it off the car cigarette lighter socket. This enables it to be watched and charged at the same time.

      It also has 2 twin 3.5mm jack outputs so two of you can listen to sound if you don't want to disturb anyone around you. Gone are they days of having to share one set of headphones.

      Well built and a decent 7" screen I was surprised at just how good the sound was from this little system. I certainly didn't expect great sound but it was a Sony but still better than I thought it would be. That was when playing a Shrek DVD which looked fantastic. Now, as I was travelling I didn't want to take a lot of discs so I opted for trying to use the USB slot with a couple of DivX movies on it. I converted a few DVDs to see if they would work. I had no luck with no real idea why. I tried a few different settings on the convertor, but the Sony wasn't accepting it. Lastly I tried a few different flash sticks and you guessed it, still no luck. So I put it down to the player only reading DivX off discs and not via the USB slot. A real bummer as I didn't want to carry a load of discs with me. I have contacted Sony but they have yet to respond to my emails.

      Music played well off of CD's though it wasn't the main reason why I bought it. It could play mp3's which were burnt on to a disc. A good feature is the USB in which accepts memory card adapters.

      Still, if you can get over that flaw I found trying to watch divx media it is a decent little machine. Quite expensive when compared to what else is on the market but it is Sony and it does the job well whilst looking good.

      Overall a decent bit of kit but loses marks due to the lack of play back via USB and price when compared to its competitors.

      OK for a portable player but the whole sector needs to improve.

      This CD and DVD player is easy to use and to set up; it starts playing automatically when you insert media and you can operate the standard DVD menu.
      The loading time is short for disks but memory sticks take longer to set up than an MP3 player.
      The box doesn't contain head phones but there is a standard socket and it works fine with my MP3 player's set.
      Sound quality is not brilliant over the built in speakers but you don't really notice when using head phones or when the volume is low.
      The picture quality is good but the screen is small.
      You can play music from your computer by memory stick but this takes a while and with the poor sound and cumbersome design this is not an attractive use.
      As portable DVD players go this is quite good but they need to get better and cheaper before I would consider any one of them worth the money.
