Summary: After reading all the reviews that rated this product as negative I was leary to purchase. I ordered the item and received it within two business days. We plan on using it during our plane ride to Disney. I have been using it for about a week. Everything works as expected. The battery last about 2 hours. Yes it is a problem that you cannot charge and use the adapter while still viewing a DVD. I found that my JVC camcorder adapter works with this player.
Summary: I was somewhat hesitant to purchase this item due to the comments about the sound (being not loud enough) because I am hearing impaired. However, because a friend had this item and praised it so highly, I decided to get it and order a compact speaker to go with it. When the player arrived, I immediately gave it a try. I couldn't figure out why others said the volume was not good enough! Even being hard of hearing, I had no difficulty hearing my exercise dvds.
Summary: I read each review on this site...thrice. I compared products and prices online and in stores. I contemplated this purchase for several months - batting back and forth between Polaroid, Emerson, Philips (names much more familiar to me) and Audiovox (not familiar at all). I finally decided to take the plunge - I trusted Amazon to assist should I experience any issues. I am so glad I did.
Summary: I bought one of these last year for my daughter. She was afraid to ride in the car after a recent accident. This took that fear right away! It keeps her mind busy on the movie instead of on the road. The included travel bag is easy to install We switch it from car to car all the time. The fact that it comes with two sets of headphones is great for when she has friends along. My boyfriends son liked it so much that we bought him one for Christmas this year.
Summary: We bought three of these for our children's Christmas gifts. One made clicking noises as it played. Sent it back to Amazon and was sent another for replacement. The replacement played for 30 minutes and then went black. It has not worked again. Amazon will not replace an item twice. We are getting a refund and buying another item. The other two have not had any problems, but if only 2 out of 4 have worked it makes you wonder???? Good luck.

Summary: I am very pleased with this product it is lightweight for me for business travel and the battery is long enough for most flights plus the car kit is very convenient. The resolution is quite good and the sound and features and the instructions clear that come with it and I like the bonus pack with the headphones and more very much. Best price around I have seen it for alot more and I got free shipping too it was here in no time.
Summary: We ordered the Audiovox D1708PK 7" as a Christmas gift for our two year old granddaughter. It became a gift for her parents! After a surgical procedure which required an out of town trip during a winter storm, the toddler cozied up in her car seat and watched Dora as her parents watched the road. The Bonus Pack was more than you could expect.
Summary: I bought this DVD player about a year ago and after only light usage the player will not work the text message reads "no dvd in player". Audiovox wants 97.00 plus shipping to look at it. Don't waste your money on this player.
Summary: It is what it claims to be. Nice screen that can be watched from all backseat passengers when placed between two front seats. However it would be nicer if the battery would be charged while watching a DVD. If you connect the car adapter to the battery you cannot play a DVD. While working on car power if you stop and/or restart the car the DVD stops (as the electicity supply to the unit is cut, so you have to manually find out where you were left.
Summary: I bought this DVD player as a birthday gift for my son in August, 2006 and so far I am pleased with the performance. Our whole family has used it for traveling in the car and airplanes. We have listened to music, watched movies, and showed picture slide shows. The whole package is a great idea, especially the 2 sets of earphones. We hooked it up to our satalite to use it as a small TV and also to play games. The price is right and I received it in a timely manner.
