The DVD-LX97 is as nifty-looking as these things go, with a 9-inch widescreen TFT screen, SD memory card slot and a built-in tuner for over-the-air television broadcasts. It even has an auto kit that lets you listen to the audio in the car for those special road trips—or to keep the kids quiet without a built-in entertainment system. Available in March in Japan, but no word on a US release.
