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.
Summary: I buy a lot of refurb items. All looked new when unboxing beacause there are made from recycled parts. But this one is a used player. Only cables where new in plastic bags. One of the player played a movie for about 2 minutes and the disc motor just die.
Pros: 2 individual players, can link players, fast DVD loading
Cons: Not reliable, refurb looks like a used instead, many scratches on body ans loose buttons.
Summary: We have only had these about a month and haven't had a chance to use these on an extended trip yet so we will see how long these last. Reviews on other sites indicate some issues after a few months but no issues so far yet with these.
Pros: We have only used these maybe 3 times so far, but so far they work great. Price was about $100 cheaper than new on other sites.
Cons: Open box, some signs of wear-obvious refurbished unit.
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 bought this about a year ago now because my wife was looking for a good aftemarket type way to play videos for our 2 year old son while in the car out and about on errands. After reviewing most of the products available on amazon, we settled on this one because it seemed to have better reviews...
Great for car travel & where there are outlets - NO BATTERIES

Summary: I bought this hoping to replace the two Phillips individual DVD players that I had (that had MAJOR USE) that eventually died. I read the reviews, and somehow missed that they DON'T HAVE BATTERIES! Now I will clarify my usage - I use these for when we travel (not daily use).
Summary: We purchased these 7 inch dvd players for a car trip. We used them a few times before the trip to make sure they worked. I chose this model so that my 3 children could choose to watch the same movie on 2 screens or watch 2 different movies.
