Portable DVD Players Buying Guide


A great movie can make a long trip go by very easily... particularly when you are flying.  Sometimes watching that tiny screen in front of you on an airline can be a hassle, as the flick may be interrupted with announcements about turbulence, or the crying child next you may decide to contribute his or her own soundtrack into the best of scenes.  Ever think about taking your own portable DVD player  with you?  With one of these and a good set of headphones , you can enjoy that action film  to the fullest while everyone else is stuck listening to an overview of the weather.
