Portable DVD player roundup

We take a look at the 2008 lineup of portable DVD players and help you decide which one is right for you.

Picking the right portable DVD player isn't an easy task. There are many details to factor in such as screen size, battery life, and playback capabilities. Some players have swivel screens, and others opt for a collapsible hinge. While you'll find that most DVD players use the familiar clamshell design, a few models are now adopting the tablet-style form factor.

Some players are even incorporating iPod music and video playback along with SD flash card readers with the ability to play all kinds of file formats including DivX-encoded movies.

We've taken a close look at the top competing models for 2008 and have tested them extensively. So, whether you're looking for a "bare-bones" portable player or one with all the bells and whistles, be sure to check out our portable DVD player roundup and see which unit is right for you.
