i think it is a cool gadget for kids. i even have one they are so cool you get to watch a flick on a little pordible t.v. - Katelyn - Age: 10 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

One of my friends has one of those things and she said that the picture is all scratchy & fuzzy and you can't see a thing! I saw one, and they aren't as cool as they look the screen is about two cm wide and long! Not so kewl to me it's really dumb don't get it! - Emeka - Age: 13 - From BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA

the geek gasget is really geeky i would name the #1 geek toy of the year. - Chandell - Age: 12 - From CANADA

I think you need to put it in color if you want more money but it probbably won't get any money but try it - Roland - Age: 10 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

I personally think video now, even though portab;le, is worthless. It is black and white, the screen in tiny, and there are not many choices for what to watch. Even though the idea is cool, the owrld is just not readyt for video now. - Ari - Age: 9 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

it's kinda cool, but why in black and white? it's not that I hate the gadget, au contraire! I love it. this is the new way to sneakly watch films while your parents think your doing homework, but how r we supposed to watch harry potter on these? - Farida - Age: 12 - From EGYPT

It is cool but they should give free videos with it. That would be awesome! - Neethi - Age: 9 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

The bad thing about the Video Now is that it is in black & white not color - Emily - Age: 10 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

I think it is awesome - Lynn - Age: 12 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

I think the video now is ok, but u have to watch shows that are old reruns on disks over again and you can't change the channel without taking out the disc and it's in black and white. If video nows were in color that would be way cooler( not saying they aren't cool not saying they are cool). - Camisia - Age: 10 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

I wish it wasn't in black and white. - Sarah - Age: 8 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

I TINKE IT GOOD - Ahmed - Age: 14 - From EGYPT

Sure, it sounds cool, but the thing's in black and white. And the options for what to watch on it are extremely limited. Fine for people who like the choices for the discs and don't mind black and white, go ahead and buy it if you are one of these people, but otherwise I have no interest in the thing. - Ellie - Age: 12 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

YES!! I've totally wanted 1 forever!! - Heather - Age: 13 - From CANADA

I think it is kinda cool - Tyris - Age: 12 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)
