Review - Audiovox D710 7" Portable DVD Player #Travel-Friendly

Audiovox 7-inch. Widescreen Portable DVD Player Review
Imagine being stuck on a long 6+ hour flight on a plane. Now imagine the hearing the flight attendants announce the featured movie they will be showing and its one you don't like or want to watch. That won't be a problem for me, since I'll have a handy Audiovox product to keep me entertained on the flight. On my last flight, I was stuck watching "Last Holiday"... and I am not a Latifah fan.

We were sent the Audiovox D710 7" Portable DVD Player that can play DVDs, CDs, CD-R/RW and has picture CD playback. We have no need to listen to music via CDs or view pictures on a portable DVD player, but the extra features are a nice perk. The portable DVD player works effortlessly, you pop in a DVD and it automatically plays. Nothing better than simplicity. It is very sturdy and has a nice form.

The portable DVD player has a 7" screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The built in stereo speakers are located right under the screen and have good volume, although at the highest setting it tends to sound a bit garbled. There are handy buttons all throughout the top left hand side of the device. Buttons are nice, identifiable and big. There are handy outputs for audio and video on the side of the device, as well as two, yes TWO headphone jacks. I think that is a wonderful addition, since either me and my sister or my baby sister and little brother will be watching movies on the plane and won't have to share earphones. In the box came came included a car charger which has come in handy since we've received it.

While I find the simplicity of using the Audiovox DVD player a great plus, the screen is not the greatest resolution but does have nice vivid color. At times it looked a bit grainy, but I do like how it is not a shiny screen, but rather matte. Another con is its size, not its weight, but its size. While closed, this portable DVD player is a whopping 1.6" thick. This wouldn't present much of a problem if you're going to a family's house or camping and want to take it (and its charger) with you, but when taking it on a flight, size matters. Overall we have really enjoyed taking the device with us on long 1hr+ car trips for my younger siblings. It will surely be a great thing to have with us on the long plane ride. A huge thanks to Audiovox for the opportunity to review their product.
