I got this dvd several years ago, but just now took it out of the box when our son was born. He doesn't like sitting in the backseat by himself so we found this to be perfect for helping him get through some car trips. It really plays well and the battery lasts for quite sometime. We have played numerous DVD's for him. It does have a couple draw backs. The sewn piece that goes through one of the adjusters, just broke one day. There really wasn't an easy fix for it. I ended up having to sew it myself. So that was a little disappointing. I wish the power cord was a bit longer. Because as time goes by-or at least playing a DVD about 6 times, the batter started to die faster. So unless you charge it before you go, you need to keep it plugged in. Not always an easy solution. It also doesn't seem to sit in the case very well. You have to move the player up and down to get to the power button because the travel case gets in the way. I think it probably works best if someone can hold it on their lap. Now DVD's have decided to stop working. I get errors, like wrong disc or it continues to "load". I know you get what you pay for but I wish I would have gotten more than 5 months use out of it.
