If you want to watch movies on the road and either don't own a DVD-equipped notebook or find them too bulky, LG's compact DP5932P portable DVD player is one of the current picks of the alternatives.
It's equipped with a crisp 7in widescreen display and can read DVD-movie and DVD-audio discs in addition to all forms of DVD and CD recordable and rewritable media. Supported formats include Super VCD, VCD, Audio CD, Kodak Picture CD, JPEG images plus MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) digital music files.
The built-in stereo speakers are clearer and louder than you'd normally find on products of this type, and volume can be controlled using the bundled wireless card-type remote control. Also, the battery is removable and lasts around four hours. Remaining battery life is shown in a small LCD display that includes other general information. This is backed up by an excellent on-screen display and intuitive menu/browsing system. All up, a fantastic little machine - but even the competitive price of $999 will be too much for some.
