    Philips PET7402

    Coming in at 138 dollars with a pretty sturdy stand, this model is a strong contender for your needs. The TFT LCD screen is a decent size at 7 inches. One interesting thing to know, for the home film makers out there, is that this model is capable of playing VCD's and CDR's. That means it should have no trouble with just about anything that you can burn yourself. Even if the file is too big to burn as a standard DVD. Sorry Bluray fans, you will not be able to use this model. It also includes two built in speakers, that give you great sound quality. You can get it at Phillips.

    Dual XDVD180 DVD player

    This model is hand held, so those giant sides that look silly on the photos, actually turn out to be very comfy hand grips. The screen also avoids the issues that many of the flat screens out today have. It allows you to use a wide variety of angles. You can sit up and hold it in front of yourself, you can lie back and put it over your head, or you can jam it between two things, and stare at it on an angle. Also, it is fairly drop resistant. So you can give it to the kids without too many worries. It comes in as low as 69 dollars. Do your comparison shopping and you will be rewarded. You can buy it on Amazon.

    This one comes in at 130 dollars. Just be aware that it has little in the way of shock protection, so this is a mount it and keep your hands off model. It does have an admirable anti skip feature that handles well even on bumpy back roads. So if you are a country driver, or just a stop and go driver, this may be something to consider. After all, noone wants to keep missing a section of the movie because of a pothole. You can get it on Amazon.
