iPad Will Kick Out Portable DVD Player?

The portable mini DVD player was once an ideal movie playing tool for long flights and car rides with its large, high-resolution widescreen display, long battery life and light weight. Now with the arrival of iPad, with its gorgeous touch screen, 9.7-inch LED backlit IPS display, up to 720p video resolution support, 10 hours battery life, 1.5 pounds weights, Netflix, huge movie offering of the iTunes stores, etc, all make iPad perfect for watching movies, TV shows, podcasts, music videos, and more.  So who needs a portable DVD player when you have an iPad?

iPad VS Portable DVD Player
First let’s take a look at the specifications of both. For Sony DVP-FX930 is a winning and popular portable DVD player with its stunning high-resolution screen and longer battery life, so I just take it as an example.

First Round: iPad wins Portable DVD Player
Obviously iPad is lighter than Mini DVD Player, so it is easier for you to bring it everywhere. Then the screen display resolution of iPad is higher than mini DVD player, so it is sure to be a better device for enjoying high-quality movie. Moreover, iPad’s longer battery life is absolutely a great competitive advantage. From these three points, we can consider iPad as a better choice for movie enjoyment based on portability and video display effect.

Second Round: iPad wins Portable DVD Player
Then we can know that iPad has Netflix and the huge movies offering of the iTunes stores too (rent or buy), and you can even watch YouTube video online. iPad also supports playing H.264, MOV, M4V, MP4, MPEG-4, MJPEG video formats, so you can sync videos to your iPad via iTunes from your PC. So it is remarkable for enjoying kinds of videos. And all these can not be realized on Mini DVD player.

Third Round: Can Portable DVD Player win iPad?
Portable DVD player is a great and portable device for playback DVD movies when you travel. If you have a lot of DVD discs and only want to enjoy these DVD movies on your long trip, Mini portable DVD player is sure to be the thing you want. For you can’t even insert a DVD disc into the iPad. iPad can’t help you to play your DVD discs. So can we consider Mini DVD Player as the winner in this round? Not anymore. Cause right now, the best DVD to iPad converter program can help you play DVD movies on iPad and even act better than mini DVD player. Only one thing you need to do is to import your DVD movies into the program, rip and convert them into iPad workable format like iPad (*.MP4) on your computer, then sync these converted videos to iPad. After that, you can enjoy your DVD movies on iPad with pristine quality for long flights and car rides, and you even need not take any DVD disc along. So, in this round, I think that iPad is still the winner for its convenience.
