We use the Go-Video DP8440 8 1/2" of screen and decent picture.

Hey Steve,

would any portable dvd player work as a monitor, as long as they have the composite video cables (i think that's what they're called, the red white yellow)

when i looked at some portable dvd players online, it looks like they have the input jacks for those cables but not out-going.

also, do they work in 16x9? i am planning on shooting in stretch mode on my dvx100a. you're feedback would be appreciated. thanks.

On the one that I mentioned, it has 1/8" pin video and audio ports and a switch that makes them innies or outies. The screen is a 8.5" 16x9 which would be perfect for your stretched video.

Pretty nice little unit for the bucks. Most that have inputs are hundreds more. Circuit City is supposed to carry them. We buy through a distribution house that has discontimued the Go-Video line for some political reason. Go-Video's stuff is made by Samsung.

Anything else? Oh, the batteries are not so good. Have something else available.

The portable dvd player with LCD screens which I have seen are more than the cost of a used 8" JVC TM-91 or Sony 8042 monitor.

Consider buying a used CRT instead.
