There are asian versions of portable VCD players with screens made by Panasonic and Aiwa in Singapore, they both have 4" TFT type LCD monitors and screen quality is quite good, they are excellent in terms of utility, especially if you travel, live outdoors alot and use in the office. They both also have Karaoke functions and cost about USD400.
You can contact me by e mail as I have both models for sale.

HELLO TO ALL!!
RECENTLY IN SINGAPORE I FOUND A CARD TAT CAN CONVERT ANY CD PLAYER OR LASER DISC IN VCD DRIVER. THE CARD CAN SUPPORT EITHER NTSC AND PAL SYSTEM, THE COST IS ABOUT 60 SINGAPORE DOLLARS. IT'S BASED ON C-CUBE "CL680" CHIP AND CAN BE ADAPTED TO ANY CD PLAYER SINCE THE FORMAT OF VCD IS THE SAME OF A NORMAL MUSIC CD-ROM. I HAVE TO TRY TO CONNECT THIS CARD, IS ONLY A HARDWARE MODIFY. FOR ANYONE INTERESTED TO TRY TO THIS WEB SITE "WWW.SANACE.COM". I THINK THAT IS POSSIBLE TO PURCHASE DIRECTLY FROM THEM, BUT DON'T WISH TO PAY WITH CREDIT CARD.

Yes you need a TV but some players like the AIWA have screens built in. However for the skae of your vision hook it up to a 13" or larger TV. Hong Kong VCDs are everywhere just walk into a street market.If you live in the states then check out: www.fivestarlaser.com and www.sasavcd.com for the latest in VCDs. And yes Soap opreas exist on VCD but you have to find them.
