Summary: Brilliant bit of kit that attaches itself to the front headrest easily and runs of a 12v. If you have young children and take them on long car trips an flights, this is a brilliant bit of kit. Pros: Easy to fit. Picture quality is fantastic, you can view at any angle. Sound is fine. Portable, can be used away from the car (see battery caveat below) Good for airplanes. Comes with cables that attached to most TV's so great for hotel rooms as well.
Summary: Whilst the unit seems great, it broke after only a few times of being used in the car. Unfortunately, that is where the nightmare began!! I have never dealt with such a rude and difficult company, who tried to get out of fixing it on a couple of occasions, did not pick up the unit when they said they would and gave three different estimations for it to be fixed.
Summary: I had done quite a bit of research to get a reasonably priced in car dvd and in the end price and it's tablet shape meant I opted for this one. The first one I ordered needed to be returned due to a pixelated screeen, however I was impressed with how quick and easy it was to do so. The second one was in full working order and very easy to set up in the car.
Summary: I bought two Duos when on offer, plus got free wireless headphones (recommended) and bought the stanchion mount (very recommended!)for less than buying the Deluxe pack -which effectively this lot is. We used to have over the headrest DVDs for long journeys only as they took so long to strap in and wire up. No more. The stanchions are in permanently and are quite discreet, as is the one wire from each to the 'yo-yo' power and screen to screen connector. So simple to use.
Summary: Researched a number of similar portable dvd players to use in my car to keep my little girl ammused on car journeys. This is fantastic, easy to fix to the head rest and plug/play to use with good sound/clear vision - the 9inch screen makes a big difference so dont go for anything less. it is worth purchasing the seperate battery then you can use it as a portable dvd player for the airport etc...
Summary: Whilst this product was good for entertaining my child beware, this unit is very fragile and not as robust as the manufacturer claims. Mine ended up with a broken screen after carrying the unit in its supplied case in a rucksack. The rucksack had not been dropped or knocked. Nextbase were unwilling to replace the unit as the screen is not covered by the warranty, even though the unit had been carried using the supplied case.
Summary: very very good. Clear picture and good sound. Click system is very easy and stable. Bought the stantion mount to go with it. Good idea but not esential. This has already had a lot of use with my handicapped son. I would not hesitate to recommmend this to anyone looking for in car entertainment. My only interest is playing original DVD so I cannot comment about other format or coppies.
No Power in car and doesn't display video from iPod

Summary: Bought for the sole purpose of playing video cartoons from iPod in the car for my son as my wife travels 45min every day with him to gym/creche and 45min back. Bought & downloaded lots of itunes videos in readiness. Found that it didn't come with the relevant cable & adaptor to run from iPod so bought those afterwards.
