CONTEST NOW CLOSED

My kids ask great questions. They tell lots of stories. Have something to say about everything. This is all adorable and wonderful, but on a 7-hour car ride, it can definitively leave you pining for a little bit of silence. Since my husband and I are still driving our pre-kid car (read: no built-in DVD player or nearly enough cupholders), this leaves us with bringing along a portable DVD for long car trips.

Recently we had the chance to try out a new portable Blu-ray/DVD player from Best Buy: the Philips 9″ Widescreen Portable Blu-ray Disc Player with Dual Screen.

The name is long but so are the list of cool features.

• Dual 9″ screens. In this case, size does matter. You’ll notice the difference between this 9″ screen and other 7″ ones.

• LCD widescreen display. Crystal clear images. No cropping.

• Multiple playback formats. Blu-ray Disc, DVD, DivX, MP4, H.264, FLV, MOV, WMV – whatever your media format, this DVD can probably play it.

• Fewer cords. The car adapter cord splits to power both screens, and there is only one additional AV cord between the two screen. I’ve used a number of portable DVD players over the past few years and I can tell you that the fewer cords, the better.

• Multiple ways to power. Car adapter, rechargeable battery pack and AC adapter. Choose the power method that works best for your situation. [One note: the car adapter powers both screens while the AC adapter only powers a single screen. This likely won’t be an issue for you, but with more and more cars coming with outlets and more and more devices jockeying for power just something to keep in mind.]

• Remote. I’m a huge fan of anything that keeps me from contorting my body into the backseat while we’re driving.

• Saves your place. Dinner stop? No problem! The Philips DVD player picks right back up where the movie left off.

We’re about to leave town again for our fourth trip with the Philips 9″ Widescreen Portable Blu-ray Disc Player with Dual Screen and so far, it’s performed flawlessly. There is plenty of time for talking, singing, joke-telling and questions, but thanks to Philips, we’re also guaranteed some silence too.

This Philips 9″ Portable Blu-ray Disc Player is definitely a top-of-the-line system (FYI – Check Best Buy for current sales as well as the details on their 6-month financing option), but Best Buy also offers a number of other portable DVD players choices. Whether your summer travels take you by car, plane or train, keep the kids happy and acquire some much needed silence with Philips and Best Buy.

    My favorite feature is the fact it has dual screens so that it two kids can enjoy the movie easily on long trips. The only thing that would make it better is if it could also play two different movies!
