Good one. Value for Money

MJ, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: Would recommend this for the price. Has all that is needed except that it is not concealed and wire are handing in my Van. The brighter side is I am paying 15 times less than what is needed for inbuilt DVD players.

lifesaver for cars & planes!

Samster Mom, Amazon
28 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this at Target at LOVE it, we've had it for about a year and it still works great. It has saved on sanity on long car trips and for the plane I just strap the dvd player onto the tray table in the upright position. I saw some poor reviews for the 2nd screen quality and I can't comment on that because we never use the 2nd one since we only have 1 kid.

Don't waste your money!

Dana L. Maclean "Working mom", Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: Don't waste your money - this only lasted 5 months and then quit reading discs. hilips customer svce. seemed nice, offering to send a new one. The "new" one cames as a refurbished unit older than the one I bought WITHOUT the mounting kit. When I called back, was told there is no mounting kit...still waiting for the resolve. Bottom line, unit quit working waaaay too soon. Woiuld never buy again!

Worked well, broke quick

J. Winterstein "AZ sun", Amazon
11 September 2009
  • Summary: We bought this DVD player for a raod trip and it worked well. It kept the kids happy. The volume was loud enouth that they could hear over the road noise. The problem is that after owning it for three months the DVD player will no longer track. We put in a DVD and it just flashes "loading" on the screen. I though it was a really good price for dual screen DVD player but I guess now I know why.

Poor quality!

momof3, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: We were in the process of moving so there were a lot of trips back and forth from the old house to the new house. The DVD player and 2nd screen worked fine for about a month or two. Then the 2nd screen stopped working - no picture, only sound. I would not recommend this product to anyone nor will I buy another Phillips brand product. I have had nothing but problems with the Phillips brand products that I have purchased. Best bet is to buy two portable DVD players.

Check your cables

  • Summary: If your 2nd screen doesn't work be sure to check the cable between the screens- it only works one way. Reverse it and see if it works.

Where's the remote?!

Overstock
29 May 2009
  • Summary: Excellent product, great price, EXCEPT the refurbished item from Overstock.com does not include a remote. The remote is essential for accessing some menu features; it can be purchased from the manufacturer for $20 + $7 shipping, which significantly reduces the savings!

Broke after 4 moths with no replacement by Philips

T. Malloy "Tiffany", Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: Nice while it worked. Second screen broke after 4 months of mild-moderate use and Philips states they can't replace it because they have no stock due to selling all of their product to retailers. I asked to speak with a supervisor who told me they can do a "buy back" for $116. We paid $179. This is our second Philips DVD that has broken so we won't be purchasing this brand again.
