The PET729/37 is an entry-level portable DVD/DTV player from Philips. This product features a 7-inch LCD screen, an ATSC tuner and an external antenna. Compared to the more expensive Philips PET749/37, this model has a lower resolution screen and less powerful sound output. This model also lacks 180-degree swivel functionality. The screen features a 480 x 234 pixel resolution screen, which is capable of producing average image quality given the unit’s overall size. The DVD portion of the PET729/37 is compatible with a wide range of disc formats, including MP3 CDs and DVD+/-R recordable discs. For sound, Dolby Digital and 320 kbps MP3s are fully supported. The built-in tuner supports the digital television standard ATSC (unscrambled), and comes with an external, detachable antenna to maximize reception capabilities. Users of this product can expect about 3 hours from the built-in battery.
