Summary: It works fine in the car most of the time but occasionally just will not play a disc. These are discs which are correct and compatible and will work next time you play them. Once you have played another disc it will then accept the previous! Maybe something to do with internal memory? Very frustrating when an impatient 'viewer' is waiting. Also unless you are using the remote all the time the buttons do not always respond to commands.
Excerpt: When we would soon be facing a 7 hour car journey I thought to myself "what can I do to keep the children entertained?" I looked to amazon and found this twin screen in car dvd player on offer at a fantastic price and ordered them straight away. They were delivered really quick. They hook up the back of the front seats, connect to each other and then plug into the cigarette lighter socket (works without being plugged in but the battery doesn't last that long).
Summary: I brought this for my 5 year old grandson. Picture quality is good and it is so easy to use. He has no problems pausing, rewinding & fast fowarding films to get to his favourite bits. A really good product at an extremely good price.
Summary: Very disapointed!!! I have bought two of them to use in the car for holliday trips. The frist one did broke after just 4 trips unfortunately stright after warranty, the second used 6 times broke after 18 months.
Summary: Originally bought this portable DVD player in May 2010. It lasted 6 months. Amazon provided a replacement in Dec 2010. That has lasted 18 months. The sound level was good. However, discs stuck frequently, some discs it would not play at all, some it would only play selective episodes. Some days it would be black and white and other days it would be colour. These discs played perfectly well on other machines. Then one day it just refused to work at all.
Summary: Brought this DVD player to keep our toddler occupied on long journeys in the car. Was expecting it to be a bit rubbish given the low price and unheard of brand name. But it is actually very good with lots of useful features. Everything you need is in the box including headrest fixing kit, remote control (with battery), power leads for the car and house.
Summary: Our son makes a lot of noise on car journeys - or at least he did until we bought this DVD player. It was slightly cheaper when we bought it and I might not spend over £100 on a unit but it really is a great piece of kit. We used it originally with the straps to secure it to the head rest but I decided to buy the proper bracket as an accessory and that is brilliant and well worth the money. The main gripe on other reviews seems to be with regard to the battery life.
Summary: Brought this to entertain my 10 and 7 year old on a ski trip to France. The kids were able to operate this without our help, a big plus, and they really enjoyed having them in the back of the car. Would recommend for long journery.
