We bought this for our son who doesn't do well on car trips and our almost new portable player died after 6 months. We looked all over and finally found this one at walmart.com. It was way cheaper than any other place and way cheaper than any they even had in the store. This is small and compact and takes up no space at all. But the screen is still 7 inches and is really clear. The sound and picture quality is very nice. You really don't feel like your missing out. It plays almost any kind of format you can think of-CD's, DVD's, MP3, etc.The buttons are easy to use and are very functional and user friendly. My only complaints are that it doesn't charge while it's playing. It only charges while it's turned off. It's also a little tempermental. I have bumped it a couple times while it's on our console and it will skip. Although we have not really had any problems with it skipping while going down the road. I also wish it had come it's own case. A lot of the cases I have found are too big for this that it's a little awkward finding a car case that will fit it.
