Bottom Line:   
I would have to say that for the price I paid for it (400) it is a very good bargin. I bring it to work everyday so on the ride home I rent a dvd and watch it in my 1 1/2 to 2 hr commute throught boston traffic. it does hang up and it does occasionally skip but it's not all that annoying. My only complaint it that the battery does not last long enought about 1 3/4 hrs at best I have bought an inverter to have ac voltage in my car but when it is hooked up to it you get a whine through the speakers ( I have a wireless adapter so I can hear the movie on 88.7fm) overall the picture is clear and sharp. I would give an overall rating of 3.5 if the battery lasted 3 hrs it would be a 4.8 Hope this helps

Because I haven't made it through one movie without it skipping or stopping, I would recommend to NOT buy this product!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
I acquired this product at a store in Hong Kong for about HKD$4200 (abot UK£420). It was a Region 6 unit, but the shop promptly entered a secret code into the remote control to convert it into a multi region unit. The Aiwa build is ok. Being a bit bulky, it is nothing to boast about. However, the price was cheap! The portable Sony and Panasonic models were smaller and lighter, but at a price.
The DVD player worked very well in both Mains powered and battery mode. However, when the external battery is attached, the Optical Digital out cannot be used. Also, the NTSC/PAL switch must be set to the desired mode before attaching the battery. A main problem is that the battery cannot be charged at the same time as using the unit.

The screen quality is good, especially when watching wide screen movies such as Gladiator. However, some times vertical banding can be seen on the image.
Sound quality wise, the internal speakers are adequate. Using Earphones and/or the RCA jacks to connect to a hi-fi is much more preferable.

In all this product is OK. It is nothing to boast about. The main reason for purchasing this product is the functionality for the price paid.
