There's really nothing to say design-wise that sets this Sony portable DVD player apart from most of the rest of the recent crop of portable DVD players. It's almost a visual twin of the , with a white, iPod-esque exterior that opens up to a black interior housing the screen on top and disk player and control panel on the base. There is a small speaker panel running underneath the screen. Its compact size and sub 1kg weight make the FX720 easy enough to carry in a handbag or backpack when travelling.
With only a seven-inch display, we doubt that you'll ever be far enough away from the player to need a remote control, but one is included anyway. The remote is small, but well laid out in such a way that all buttons are easy to use.
In addition to the AC adaptor, the unit comes with an in-car charger and an AV in/out cable. There are two headphone jacks but no headphones included.
The FX720 plays the standard set of DVD disc formats -- DVD-ROMs, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD-R -- as well as DivX video files. It also handles MP3 audio tracks and JPEG images.
