Hi folks, just been playing with the Yamada PDiX-770 and I'm impressed. It's slot loading (from the right) so there is no hinged flip-up screen. The 7 inch LCD display is nice and clear although there is no protective covering so I probably wouldn't let the kids play with it. The package does, however, come with a protective pouch which you can pop the player in. It has a clear front so I think this might afford additional protection for the LCD display. The unit is multi-region out of the box and region 1, 2 and 3 DVDs all played fine on it. (See photo of region 3 Hero playing). The only output option is composite (an S-video would have been nice) but picture quality to our 28" telly was fine. With the 770's TFT screen active, the picture had some visible moving diagonal interference lines. But these soon disappear when the TFT screen is turned off. Something you'd want to do when using an external display, anyway. The only minor irritation with the unit is the length of time the battery power indicator graphic remains on the screen. Far too long. But that aside I would recommend this unit for using (with the supplied headphones, lighter power plug and pouch with straps) in the car or (with the supplied battery) on the train. Or indeed any time you want to watch a movie while out and about.
