Pros:Sleek Design, Beautifully designed screen, great price

Cons:Shotty battery life

The Bottom Line: The Philips PET741/37 is a sleek and affordable portable DVD player.


Why stay tied to a portable media player such as an iPod Touch to watch videos, after a while your eyes can strain from the small screen, instead you can choose the good ole fashioned portable DVD player. The model that I recommend is the Philips PET741/37, this affordable and modern portable DVD player offers everything that you could want in a portable media player, with the Phillips namesake behind it.

The Philips PET741/37 rings in at an affordable $99.99, just in time for the holidays, and most children and adults will find use from this excellent portable DVD player, whether you are camping or just going for a road trip the possibilities are endless. The Philips PET741/37 comes with a crystal clear 7” LCD screen, which really shows DVD movies will, especially with the stellar backlighting. The Philips PET741/37 also features a single headphone jack coupled with a pair of decent built-in stereo speakers; this combination gives you two excellent options for receiving sound from the Philips PET741/37.

The battery life isn’t stellar at around two hours, you’ll be able to watch maybe one full length DVD movie. Luckily the Philips PET741/37 comes with a car charger, as well as an AV cable for additional media.
The ideal solution for the Philips PET741/37 is to use the car adapter during long trips, where you’ll be able to enjoy the fully quality of the exceptional LCD screen.

Sound quality is also decent during long car rides using the dual Stereo speakers, but I would recommend getting an excellent pair of headphones to fully enjoy a cinematic experience. Overall the Philips PET741/37 is a great portable DVD player, especially If you are on a budget, but the battery life just won’t cut it for long car trips.
