Summary: The DVDs work great when connected with the AV cord, but one of the DVD players has never been able to play a DVD by itself. There was a disconnected wire in the DVD player when we received it and I have never been able to get it to work. The kids usually have to fight over which movie to watch, but cause we can't play multiple DVDs. Works other than that.
Great system. It starts the movie where you left ...

Summary: Great system. It starts the movie where you left it even if the car has been turn off. The only reason I gave it a four star was because the volume even if it is at the max level seems a little low.
Summary: Great DVD players for the price. It's essentially two separate DVD players that can play the same movie or two separate movies by connecting the supplied cable.The player remembers where it left off so you don't have to restart the movie from the beginning. The units can be powered either by cigarette lighter for both players or wall outlet (one supplied for each player). I mounted them to the head rest in my 2007 Honda Odyssey and the straps work just fine.
Summary: I have a similar model of this player, the Philips PD9012/37 9-Inch LCD Dual Screen Portable DVD Player, that no longer worked after 5 roadtrips giving me the famous "Bad Disc" error. You can see my review for that product. When I got the bad disc error I noticed that I'd open the player and find the disc spinning slowly, much slower than it should if the player were to actually play the disc.
Summary: We purchased these a couple of years ago to replace our old, single screen, portable DVD player before we went on a 2 week road trip. The kids love them! There are a couple of things that we wish were slightly different about them though. Pros: - Dual screens that can either play the same DVD or different DVDs - Size is good.
Summary: This was never advertised as repackaged or refurbished and that is what it was. Model numbers were blacked out on back, totally frustrated at this. Worst part is one of the players worked for half a dvd and then wouldn't read disks anymore. This was the worst amazon purchase I have ever made!!!
Summary: We used these DVD players on a trip from UT to NV and again from UT to TX and by the time we reached TX they were no longer working. The one screen wouldn't register a dvd or that it was closed but it would show picture if we connected it to the other screen. Then a few months later when we went on a short trip the other screen stopped working as well. VERY frustrating to say the lease. For the price of these machines, they should last longer than 6 months.
Summary: I absolutely loved these units while they worked. The sound was great, the picture was great, they were easy to use, easy to install. Even though the units were only used occasionally for long trips, they stopped reading discs after about a year. One day I went to turn them on and it just kept saying "loading" and then eventually "bad disc". After searching google and a few phone calls to the manufacturer, this is apparently "normal".
Summary: I ordered this portable DVD player based on the review and the great price. Item received quickly and nicely packaged in it's original box. Works great. I have 3 kids ranging from age 11 to 1, so having the option to play 2 seperate movies is wonderful. Very pleased.
