It’s vertical design is unique. But this allows for more shelf space, and even more convenience.

It’s pretty standard. But it’s still a great holiday gift idea. It’s not only capable of superior picture and sound, but it also comes with selectable aspect ratios, between 16:9 and 4:3 formats. The Insignia DVD Player with MP3 Playback/JPEG Viewer also features a multi-angle play and multistory selection play, providing multiple viewing options, and 32 language captions.

The DVD player was revolutionary, but not everyone was able to afford one. Most people at the time could only watch VHS movies. The only machine to play VHS movies was on a VCR. Ever since they created the DVD/ VCR mixed machine, people with VHS videos can buy and enjoy both media.
Insignia Progressive-Scan DVD Player/4-Head Hi-Fi VCR – Silver
It plays DVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3, WMA and JPEG, and VHS tapes. It comes with an integrated 4-head VCR features hi-fi stereo recording, and simulated surround sound. It comes in a super-slim design for added convenience. Usually, DVDs played on these kind of DVD/ VHS players have problems, but I found that this Insignia Progressive-Scan DVD Player/ 4-Head Hi-Fi VCR featured great picture and sound. It hardly ever paused or skipped. This is a truly great DVD/ VHS player for the ideal price of $69.99 on BestBuy.com.
Ever want to watch a movie on the go? Know anyone who wants to see a movie on the go? Here is some portable DVD players from CircuitCity.com or any Circuit City stores that should be great.
Nexxtech 7″ Widescreen Portable DVD Player
It looks like a laptop computer, but it’s actually a great DVD player that you can take with you wherever you go. The Nexxtech 7″ Portable DVD Player has a 7″ LCD widescreen (16:9) screen. The DVD player has built-in speakers and a mult-format playback. It’s got ESP, which is the technology that resists interruption from your enjoyment of the portable entertainment – the same system is in many portable CD players.
ESA 5″ Portable DVD Player
This one is small and even more convenient. However, I had trouble seeing the image since it is playing on a 5″ LCD screen. The ESA 5″ Portable DVD player comes with a mult-format playback. Unfortunately, this great little buy doesn’t come with many other features. All that it’s great for is its size.
While they may be cheap, these fine-quality DVD players will make the holiday season just a little richer for a loved one.
