<--Shop for Portable DVD Players
Being a DVD player just like it's larger counterpart,
it also has most of the features.
Instead of tray loading, Nextbase used the top loading
mechanism employed by most portable MP3 and CD players on the market.
The top mounted illuminated buttons are somewhat simple,
but they get the job done quite effectively. The Stop, Play, Previous
track and Next track buttons are all that most people will use when
normally viewing a DVD. All other functions can be handily accessed
through the remote control and full on-screen display. Face it, who
really uses the buttons on the front of the player? I never have other
than the eject button.
The small LCD display does serve a purpose, but with on
screen display, you will barely take a passing glance in its direction.
Other than the top, the front is rather bare other than
the infrared remote control sensor.
