I just bought an LG DP781 portable DVD player for my wife's plane trips because its resolution beat anything I saw except for the 10" Toshiba at twice the price, and it has 4.5-5 hours battery life. It had none of the "screen door" effect that all the other portable DVD players had. It has kinda cool touch-sensitive illuminating controls, too. One thing it lacks is a hue control. The brightness/contrast is a single control, and achieves a good balance between the two, and you can increase or decrease the color intensity all the way to black and white, but the default/set hue is a bit too blue for my tastes after watching our close-to-calibrated TV. But for plane travel and kids in the car, it's fine. I did get the Best Buy extended warranty, though. Maybe one can get into a service menu and warm up the image a bit. And, on a plane, one needs sound-muffling earphones, because the volume does not get very high.
