Every once in a while here at OCIA.net we have to take a break from reviewing computer stuff and have a look at what else is going on in the electronics industry. Such is the case we have today, with a little help from our friends over at Geeks.com
who sent over a portable DVD player for review. Certainly portable DVD players
are nothing new; they've been around for years, and at this point they just keep getting less expensive. But at CES this year Panasonic unveiled the first ever portable Blu-Ray player, and despite the arguments against them (why play a high-definition format movie on a screen too small to support it?) this may be the shape of things to come.
The portable DVD player we have for review is the PDV-70X from Spectroniq which offers a 7" widescreen LCD display housed in an attractive silver body. It supports 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio, has a standard 480 x 234 resolution, supports DVD, VCD, CD and JPEG playback and advertises up to 2½ hours of power with the included rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack.
Join us as we take a closer look at the Spectroniq PDV-70X portable DVD player.
