what happened to quality?
from Austin Tx on 3/20/2013
About 7 years ago, I bought an amazingly made sony cd player, that I actually still have. These that they sell now are worthless. I have bought 4, and of the 4, 3 do not work. Buy them at your own risk. Sony is not a high quality company any longer. They are like everyone else, cheap.
Not the one shown on website

I ordered this online based on the photo and was excited until it came and saw that the FX980 *DOES NOT* have the swivel head as shown on the photo and is exactly the same control set up as the cheaper FX780. Poor customer service too because to return this I have to pay the return shipping.

This player works great. After trying the players that are still available in stores and getting frustrated with all the stop/start of poor skip protection this player is a welcome relief. I listen to recorded books and hope players will still be available for some time to come even if they are becoming obsolete for music. This is one of the best I've used. The battery compartment is a little difficult because of its placement inside but I wouldn't trade it off for lesser performance. I recommended it to a friend and now she has one too!
The best we've ever owned!

We've owned a few portable DVD players and so far this is the best we've had. The picture is great and the volume is the loudest I've ever heard on a portable player. We drive across country a couple of times a year and sometimes I let my child watch movies in bed. I've only had this a week but so far I'm thrilled with my choice. I would definitely recommend this product.

This is NOT a swivel screen DVD. The picture on item is not what you get! the 980 is bulky and does not swivel. The picture is of the 930 (which I owned before and loved!) Sony needs to change the picture!
