What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product for the price I wanted a couple of portable dvd players to keep my young daughters entertained on a recent holiday. Having shopped around I eventually opted for 2 LG DP581 players. They weren't the cheapest option available but carrying the LG name, having a 7 inch screen and a 6 hour battery life they appeared better value for money than other slightly cheaper devices. I'm pleased to say I haven't regretted the decision in paying a little bit more. Its a great product and worth every penny! The product looks fantastic with an expensive slick appearance. More importantly the picture quality is fantastic and the screen size and facility to rotate this through 180 degrees makes viewing a pleasure. The device is easy to use with a number of good features. If there is any negative I suppose the sound could be a little bit better but thats being picky! Would definitely recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit! I am 60! I am not interested in 'trending' gadgetry. I buy that which I am willing to pay good money for. This DVD player is the best (for my requirements) that I have managed to find after a good deal of searching. It looks better than it should, it feels more solid and comforting than it should and is cheaper than I would have expected for the build. It has 90 degree finesse almost all over it, without retro curves. It weighs quite a bit but for me that is also part of the attraction. You know you have a meaty product in your hands and it is totally stable on a surface. The touch side margins and remote control packed with the unit, satisfy anyone's control needs. The pivot screen, whilst not a new innovation is a godsend at times and battery life is pretty decent. I am currently getting two full length movies from each charge. Of course you can always run, linked to the mains where appropriate. The only criticism that I have read is the fact that the onboard speakers are not great. I would agree with this but would not mark down because, personally I feel that portable players should be produced without onboard speakers. The sound quality through ear/headphones is superb. I would definitely recommend the product (Purchased from Amazon UK).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning picture quality I took this with me on some long-haul flights. The picture quality is stunning, great sound (with head phones), long charge and easy to use. These may become obsolete with the new i-pad type devices, but for now this is a great product. Don't bother with store-brand products. Pay the little extra.
