Summary: I have a previous 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.
Great, full-featured set of players; a few areas where it could be improved, though.

Summary: These players have one feature that's really, really hard to find in dual-players - they will pick up where you left off, even if the power is removed (as with a home DVD or Blu-ray player, you just need to hit "stop" once before turning it off).
Summary: I have four of these and will get more for a slow motion project. Its far brighter than the 7 inch. My only complaint is that getting it to repeat is a bit complex with no help from the manual.
Summary: We were dreading to 8 hour drive to Disneyland, but these little DVD players made the trip amazingly pain free. We even played them in the room for much needed down time, as the kids loved having their own tv's. Picture was great, quality was great, sturdy, and easy to figure out.
Summary: Updated review:I received a new product from the company as a warranty replacement. However, one of the devices was already temperamental and works sporadically. The company insists that "it is fine. Just must be my car connection." They refused to re-ship a second box. 4 months later 1 unit broke.
Do NOT purchase!! Philips Customer Service is TERRIBLE!!!

Summary: Ok, I will start by saying that we were happy with our original purchase. The players stayed secure to the headrest, had a good picture, and I really liked that we could get gas and the movie would come back on where we left off.
Summary: This item fit the bill on what we needed: dual dvd player for a 2 and 7 year old to use on long car trips that could play the same movie on both players (connected by AV cable), or watch 2 movies independently (still connected by AV cable, but only need to flip a switch).
Summary: Bought this product and within 1 month the two sets would no longer connect. Returned to Amazon and got a replacement. Great customer service on the return. The second pair lasted almost a year before both units failed to play.
Summary: These DVD players are great. I purchased the set to replace a similar Phillips product that simply wore out after 2 years of heavy use and abuse. The ability to watch different DVDs is great as my youngest is now old enough to get bored on long trips but sometimes isn't interested in what his older...
