Portable DVD Players Otherwise Known as "Personal DVD players"
You'll hear fewer "Are we there yet" s on that long ride to Gramma's with a portable DVD player in the back seat. Or consider the frequent flyer on a trip from New York to LA with his or her own personal DVD player. These portable players are equipped with a LCD wide screen format in varying sizes. There are even some compact models with a folding screen that resemble a notebook computer.
Another plus for the portable model is its ability to play CD's. Simply pack comfortable headphones and your favorite CD's and the trip will fly by.
If a portable unit is appealing, consider the amount of screen size before you buy. A 5.8 widescreen is superior to a regular 4 inch model when there is more than one viewer.
Rechargeable batteries provide the power with an industry claim of three hours of playtime. For those "just in case" moments, consider buying a second rechargeable battery.
