Summary: We purchased this unit in late March anticipating several long car trips. It was easy to install and use. However, the power cord had a loose connection and would often come unplaugged from the main unit during travel. We should have sent it back then, but decided to live with it. After the third use (each use being about 4 hours long), both screens stopped working. There is still audio, but no picture.
Summary: This product worked the first time I used it and 2 weeks later it stopped. The screen said no disk when I put a dvd in. I've sent it back to audiovox to have it repaired no response yet. Also the picture quality isn't that great. Make sure and keep the original packaging if you don't have it adorama camera will not give you a refund!
So Far so great for 3 distructive, movie loving kids

Summary: Have used the dvd player for three trips so far and love it! Seems to be fairly sturdy compared to many others in the past. Love the carrying case. Only drawback I see is we can't use both sreens while using the battery pack(needed for use on a plane). The additional screen is light and very nice. Like the total of three headphone jacks for both screens. Very quiet and simple to use. Never have had a problem.
Summary: I got this and it surprised me at how well it worked... I attached it to the head rests with the straps it came with and I was set.. at night it looked like built in DVD players in the head rests from outside.. but 10 or 11 months later.... and it just stopped working!!! The sound works but no picture on either LCD... : ( I was gonna buy another as I thought my kids broke it, but after reading the reviews... it's obviously a manufacturers defect.. too bad...
Summary: I bought this thinking it was one of the "better" DVD players out there, but I was dead wrong. It worked fine until now 9 months later, the screen won't show anything but the sound works fine. And surprise, surprise the manufacturer warranty is only 90 days. That's absurd! No more audiovox for me!
Summary: The whole process was fine then when I opened up and turned on the unit for the first time I saw a dead pixel. Rather than return the item I guess I will just have to live with it. My Guess is it was never tested.
Summary: The battery does not work in the hanging position, so you don't have the option to have battery power in the car, so every time you stop for gas or turn off the car for a second, you have to restart the DVD and find where you left off. Very annoying. Also, the way that the cords attach makes too many cords hanging around the car, compared with other sets where the two monitors attach with one USB cord for power and video.
Summary: We purchased this player almost a year ago. It worked up until it's 10th month in which the mechanical part that moves the eye broke. We fixed it by shimming the part. It worked for a day and broke again. We will take one more try at fixing it, but after paying over $100 less than a year ago, we feel cheated.
Summary: IThe dvd players works well, my children are so happy. It's easier in the van with two screens, everyone can see the movie well. Best purchase I did for christmas. The sounds and image are great. I recommand that product to everyone who wants to buy a dvd player. Thank you.
