Benefits of having portable DVD players for car trips.
Although other devices are gaining popularity for mobile viewing, there are still good reasons to consider getting a portable DVD player. For instance, you've probably collected your favorite DVD movies and TV shows over the years that aren’t available through streaming services. Also, the cost of some portable DVD devices may offer a savings compared to tablets or laptops. Plus, most models can support quality entertainment in other formats beyond DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, including listening to music and looking at pictures, so you'll have options for traveling. When you’re browsing Best Buy’s portable DVD player selection, you’ll want to consider the best screen size for you. If you’ll be using it for flying on a regular basis, you may want to look at getting a smaller player because size and weight count when packing and going through airport security. For traveling with children, choose a kids’ portable DVD player that has two screens, so you’ll avoid any arguing about who gets to hold the device. Usually these models can be mounted as headrest DVD players if you’d rather keep them out of the reach of little hands altogether. Also, each monitor has an audio jack. So set up each child with a pair of kids’ headphones, pop in the latest blockbuster, and hit the road to your destination, all while enjoying the sound of silence. Even without a two-screen player, you can give each child their own source of audio by using a headset splitter, which allows connection of two headphones using only one audio jack. Soon they’ll be immersed in the on-screen action, and you’ll forget the last time you were asked, “Are we there yet?”
