Summary: This did not work when it arrived. I had the same problem described by others: the disc would just spin and spin and would not load. I took the following steps to fix the problem: 1. remove the disc 2. go to the setup menu, then to preferences 3.
Pros: Price is fabulous and the picture is actually not bad. The car adapter is nice and solid.
Cons: Speakers, although headphones sound fine. Could not mount battery. No big deal since I only plan to use this with the power adapter.
Summary: Works well for inexpensive child attention getter in the car:-)
Pros: Works, decent screen and headrest connector works great. I got it on sale for less than $50.

Summary: Look forward to buy another one if newegg put it on SHELL SHOCKER one more time.
Pros: video is okay, not perfectly fine but okay; audio is fine.

Summary: Wouldn't have given this a one star, but that's the minimum allowed.
Pros: Low price.
Cons: Just opened box with second defective unit. Had to pay shipping to return the first defective unit. Appears that either they just sent back the same defective unit, or there is a consistent defect in this device. Don't waste your time or money!
Summary: I had the same problem Rob had at first and it was very frustrating. I could tell the power was on but the dvd wouldn't spin or anything. Then I realized there is a switch on the side for AV in and out. Mine was set to in and when I switched it to out it worked.
Pros: Price. Came with a battery...
