It plays the bluray and DVD movies perfectly. It has a battery life that lasts for the whole 5 hours of a cross country flight. It has excellent picture quality and the speakers are good, but I use it with earbuds on the plane.

I purchased the SONY BDP-SX910 9" Portable Blu-ray Disc/DVD Player to use at work on the night shift and weekends. My plan was to run the HDMI output to the 23" speakerless monitor on my desk and listen with my earbuds from the 3.5mm audio out jack.

To my surprise, when I connected the HDMI cable, a message pops on the screen and says the built in (rather tinny sounding, low volume) speakers AND the AUDIO OUT jack are both dissabled!!! The sound is only available thru the HDMI cable. This is fine for a TV or Stereo connection but will not work for a speakerless monitor connection. So if that is your intent ... keep looking.

The picture quality is top notch along with the overall feel and look of the unit. And having a remote is very handy.

My first DVD was shot in the "widescreen" format and when played it had the black bars at the top and bottom which I was not able to eliminate since "widescreen" or "fullscreen" were the only options. There was no "movie" option.

It was a great picture and the headphone volume was good thru the 3.5mm jack when watching on the player's screen, but it would have been nice to be able to fill the 9" screen a bit more or put the picture up on a seperate monitor and still be able to use the audio out jack on the player.

The power cord is also very short, maybe 39-40 inches. So if you want more than 3 or 4 hours of movie time, you need to be within arms reach of a power source.

This machine is great but...

Comments about Sony BDP-SX910 9" Portable Blu-ray Disc/DVD Player:

Love it. Beautiful clear picture, sharp image. Great sound in general, but-when using headphones that have a volume control built into them, the voice in the audio is virtually inaudible. This can be corrected by adapting by plugging in the headphone jack to an adaptor of the same type, or pulling out the plug slightly where its connected to the unit, but its still annoying. Not a dealbreaker though.

    I watch DVD's & Blu-Rays, also review photos on thumb drives. Nice to have a player that can do all this. Good screen presentation--maybe a little smaller than expected, but sharp image. Battery life is very good. I am a little taken back that when reading a thumb drive in the USB slot, it doesn't list all the folders on the draive (limited memory?).
