Samsung DVD-L100 Portable DVD Player Review

Samsung DVD-L100 Portable DVD Player Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: And as you can see, what we have here is a portable DVD drive, a 10" LCD display (in perfect 16:9 aspect ratio for letter box movies).

The goods - Up close with the DVD-L100

Visually the DVD-L100 offers a clear and defect free image, presenting a rich and colourful image. If there were any dead or broken pixels on the LCD this would have taken away from the viewing experience significantly, so it reassuring to not find any. Image and picture controls are fairly limited; consisting of a brightness wheel on the right hand side, and a few other options accessible through the remote only.

The setup menu enables the user to change the screen characteristics from wide to pan & scan or letterbox. Audio controls are limited by the content the publisher has placed on a particular DVD, but if you fancy tinkering around with DTS, Dynamic Composition or enabling 2X audio scan the options are there. Parental controls seem kind of silly on a machine I wouldn't dream of putting in the hands of any kid... but if traveling with kids I could see how this may come in handy.

In general the remote gives user access to about eight extra screen features, or short cuts, but since this is essentially a travellers DVD play I don't think it would be really practical to use it most of the time.
4400 mAh Li Battery pack. Screen Brighness control wheel. Sony Memory Stick slot.

While features and shiny bits of metal will always get our attention, it is the picture, and sound that we are really here for. Let's have a look at how the DVD-L100 plays movies, and if it's up to snuff.
