#Inspect A Gadget with Money Supermarket

Money Supermarket have been thinking about the best summer gadgets for travelling and your summer holiday and they want to find the best ones that will be kind to your bank balance!
To find out more, see here.
They very kindly offered me the chance to try out and review one of their Top 5 travel-friendly gadgets as part of their #Inspect A Gadget competition so they can find out which ones should be the most packed this summer!
The winner will get £1000 towards their summer holiday!

I got the chance to choose from: Kobo Mini E-reader, Portable DVD Player, Philips HD Camcorder, Sony 4gb MP3 player or an Android Tablet..
As i love reading books, have an Iphone and a computer i discounted 3 of them pretty much straight away and after a bit of a think, i don't really have the need for a camcorder so i chose the Portable DVD Player to review.

Currys Essentials 7" Portable DVD Player - Retails at £49.99

It came really well packaged and was very secure

The instructions were really easy to follow and were very clear. The dvd has a good layout and is simple and easy to use

It also came with a socket charger, in-car charger, tv adaptor and a mini remote control!

The Specifications:
Screen Size: 7"
Screen Resolution: 480x234
Screen Type: LED
Compatable Media: DVD CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-Video,  DVD+/-R, DVD +/-RW, MP3

Battery Type: Internal Lithium Battery

So overall i absolutely Love the product! I tried it out last night with my headphones in as i wanted to make sure it all worked ok..
The screen was really clear, i had to tamper a little bit with the sound settings but soon found the right balance with the sound being really clear.
The battery life is longer than stated as the film i watched was: Harry Potter & the Philosophers Stone and that is longer than 2 hours itself!
It will be perfect for my trip to London this weekend too!
So overall a brilliant bargain buy and i can definitely see myself using this loads in the future!
