Summary: Not happy! Bought in May of this year it is only November and for about the lAst month we've had problems with them skipping. Or not even playing the video at all, but it will continuously try which causes it to scratch the DVDs. Before this problem started they were great! But just not happy that we haven't had for even a year and they're messing up, plus messing up current DVDs that are trying to be played.
I bought two sets, the secondary screen stopped working both times.

Summary: I was very disappointed with this product. My husband and I had previously bought one brand new at Walmart. A just a few months later my daughters screen (the secondary one) started to loose color, then the picture started to scramble and eventually no longer worked but the primary one still did.
Summary: Honestly, We like this product. So far so good. I bought this for my childs birthday and we used it for the first time for a road trip. The DVD screens entertained a car full of children in a seven passenger SUV. No quarreling, questioning, etc. All eyes were set on the movie playing clear and crsip sound. The volume was NOT an issue at all. The kids had great sound, while the adults enjoyed our own tunes in the front.
Summary: These are great DVD players.. BUT.. They need to provide a remote, or put the buttons on the back of the device. My girls can reach the device with their toes so they are constantly turning off the dvd player, pausing it, etc.. which results in me having to crawl into the back and turn it back on. This would be a lot easier with a remote.. or if they put the buttons on the back where wondering feet and toes can't reach it.
This product is a good price but it does not work half the time

Summary: This product is a good price but it does not work half the time, so if the product doesn’t work good price becomes not so good after all. It is cheap in quality as well, simply it is worthless, and I will never recommend this product to anyone. I purchased the dual DVD player one works but the other one doesn’t work at all. The good thing is amazon was great in returning the product to the seller without any question asks. Thanks Amazon for great customer service!
Summary: The only reason this gets 1 star is because giving it zero stars is not an option. Please don't waste your money on this AWFUL product. It worked ONCE! Yes, just one time. After our trip I stored them in their original packaging. I got them out for a second trip a month later and one screen was totally black, although sound worked, and the other screen had thick blue lines through it. I tried multiple DVDs and tried disconnecting and reconnecting wires. Nothing worked.
Summary: Installed these in our car for a long road trip and they worked great for the fist couple hours and then the 2nd monitor went out and we never got it working again. We can see there is still power going to the screen but the display is all black. We tried giving it a chance even after the other bad reviews thinking maybe the product had been updated since the other bad reviews in 2011 and 2012. Very disappointed and will be returning the item.
Summary: Power cord was frayed out of the box and did not work. Paid for overnight shipping so I could have it for our last minute trip. Oh well... Two options: 1. Go for the high-dollar TV and maybe it will last longer. 2. Buy cheap ones and keep replacing.
Very poor reliability - plan on taking back at least a couple times

Summary: These things have been horrible from the beginning. First, not all the wires were included to hook them together. Second one of the mini jacks weren't working properly so you had to pull it out about 1/8 of an inch to get it to work, third one of the latches will not secure properly so it would come open when you go over a bump and finally one now will not recognize disc. This is all within the first month and only using them a hand full of time.
Summary: We recently purchased this set and the boys(1 1/2 years and 3 years) have been hooked on it ever since we turned them on. The price was very good compared to $600 headrest or $800 dollar ceiling mount players. The only negative issue is the video cable isn't long enough to run it down through the seats like I did with the power cables in our 2009 Chevy Suburban. The boys used to be so wild and loud and now they are just the perfect little guys- Thanks to this new system.
