You can watch DVD's in the widescreen option, but you have to set it to widescreen every time you put a new DVD in. Can only reverse during a scene with the remote. I use this at my health club and love it! Crystal clear picture, easy to use controls and gave it 4 stars because the option button is too small and sensitive. Overall I highly recommend this product, it's the best one out there.
Just got it today! disk pickup is slow cannot play region free PAL DVD even! Europeans please stay away from this cannot play Divx/Xvid AVI's on DVDRs [ it shows files but cannot play... My Chinese DVD player does everything except for battery backup.. great product on file but complete disaster practically
Every feature is perfectly designed / Perfect Performance.
Comments about Sony DVPFX950 Portable DVD Player:
I loved the product so much that I purchased another one in December, 2009 and gave it as a present to my best friend. He is in the US Army and left only a few days later for Bagdad, Iraq, for a one year tour. After about two months, he sent me an email ..... telling me how much he loved the DVD player and that it was the best, most perfect present he has ever received in his life! He uses the DVD player every day! Thank you SONY for such a perfectly engineered and wonderful product!
