Any savvy gift-giver knows that the most important part of buying someone else a gift, is figuring out just how often you’ll get to use it. A portable DVD player is a gift you can give to your Valentine, knowing full well that you’ll both get some good use from it. As far as portable DVD players go, the Sony DVP-FX930/R is the top of its class. High resolution, a swivel-screen, and a long battery life make enjoying a movie a possibility wherever you happen to be.
Whether your Valentine is a cinephile with a love of French New Wave or a big sci-fi thriller fan, the 800 x 480 resolution on the Sony DVP-FX930/R is pretty much unrivalled by other portable DVD players. Images will look crisp and clear whether you’re enjoying a weekend in the woods or road tripping across the contiguous 48. The Sony DVP-FX930/R’s swivel screen and remote control ensure that it adapts beautifully to any space.
If you’re set on communicating the depth of your love with the Sony DVP-FX930/R, it is available in a passionate crimson that fits the bill for Valentine’s Day perfectly. You can even throw in a copy of Sleepless in Seattle, The Notebook, or Must Like Dogs, you know, if your Valentine is into that sort of thing.
The Sony DVP-FX930/R can read MP3s and .jpegs, too, so be sure to include a DVD with some of your favorite couple photos and add a mix-tape of songs to add a personal touch.
You’ll pay a bit more for the Sony DVP-FX930/R than you would for a dozen long stem roses, but ultimately, the hours of shared movie watching and smiles you’ll get from your clever mix tape more than make up for the dollar difference.
