WinMe - Windows' own DVD player

Functionally, the player is very basic and easy to use, and contains all the functionality expected of a DVD player. As well, it contains a capture command, which is very useful for getting screen shots. It also supports bookmarks, so that when you either stop or close the player it will pick up where it left off when you restart it. There are a few major shortcomings, though - the fact that you cannot watch movies in widescreen mode but only in full frame mode is blasphemous to the DVD fraternity. I couldn't change this setting. The Help files and the Microsoft Knowledge Base contained no information on this issue at the time of writing.

If you want to utilise this built-in DVD interface, you should make it more accessible by creating a shortcut to it - from the c:\windows folder in Windows Explorer, right-click on the DVDplay.exe file and drag it to an easily accessible location, such as the desktop. Let go of the button and then select Create Shortcut here. Alternatively, you can execute this program using the Run command from the Start menu by typing DVDplay.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
