For movies on the go, it pays to have a decent portable DVD player that actually works. Ok, so you’re never going to get the quality you could get with a home cinema system, but as far as portable DVD’s go, the Toshiba SD-P2800 is one of the best models around.
When in comes to portable DVD’s, the slicker, more compact models often sacrifice on the viewing features. Who wants to watch “Star Wars” on a screen the size of a wallet? Well, although the Toshiba SD-P2800 is decidedly a “heavyweight” gadget, the one thing you do get is an above-average screen size (with sufficiently high-resolution), a host of cool features and a stylish enough design despite its size.
In fact, one of the best features of the Toshiba SD-P2800 is the massive 9-inch screen’s viewing angle which is wide enough for more than one person to enjoy the show – top this off with the ability to capture details with its high resolution, and you’ve got a pretty good little machine for travel.
Other pluses to note with the Toshiba SD-P2800 is its battery, which just takes an hour to charge and can withstand a solid four-and-a-half hours of video playback.
The Toshiba SD-P2800 retails for around $300, and included in this are dual headphone sockets, DivX playback and a card reader for playing music and viewing photos. External devices are also easily connected via the AV in, AV out, and optical audio out cables. This means you can hook up your tv to it, or simply use the 9-inch screen for your camcorder, digital camera or as a games console.
