Summary: I purchased this for a trip to use in the car. As soon as I turned it on, it made a loud growling noise when a DVD was inserted. I don't think we were half through the first movie when it quit working all together. I exchanged it for a different one and the exact same thing happened! So much for entertaining the kids in the car! I would NEVER buy this product, nor would I suggest it to my worst enemy! It's a piece of crap!
Summary: I literally had this thing out of the box for 60 seconds and something broke on it. There's a little button next to the screen on the main unit. I pushed it and it popped in and broke inside the unit. I can't say how the pic or sound was on the unit because it broke so fast and I returned to it the store less than an hour after purchase. Hope this will help someone so that they don't waste their time like I did.
Summary: I purchased this for my daughter to use on the trips she makes. She has twins and this has been perfect. It was very easy to hook up and the twins are able to watch their favorite movies while on long trips or even short excursions. The "monitors" are very easy to put in place and remove so you can take the items inside instead of leaving them in the car. The actual "player" is good at playing movies and does well even on bad roads (ie bumpy, etc).
Summary: We bought this a month ago to go on a short trip with our family. We had played probably 4 movies and it quit working. We did nothing wrong to cause it to quit. The screen just went blank. We have tried contacting Polaroid but they don't answer and they don't call you back. What a terrible company for customer service! Of course the company who we bought it from (on Amazon) and shipped it to us says we need to contact the manfacturer so they won't do anything either.
Summary: I actually bought this product two christmases prior when it was closer to $200 and came with the game player also. While the performance is awesome when I had a problem with the volume somehow being set to mute that we could not get back on for over 6mths I discovered Polaroid was more than willing to sell be a new one[keep in mind it's not 9mths old]at almost the same price I had originally paid rather than fix it. This is when I discovered the warranty was 90days.
Definitely not "new" - missing connecting AV cable, broken strap handle

Summary: I ordered this through amazon and the distributor - Discount Jungle, which listed it as "New". It is definitely not new. The connecting AV cable which is used to power the second screen is not the right size, the metal piece that holds the back strap for the screen is busted, and there are scratches all over the monitor. I've called customer support at Discount Jungle, I will be surprised if I hear anything back. Will never order from this seller again.
You'd be very wise to opt for the extended warranty...

Summary: The Polaroid DPA-07051B is a rehash of their older 7" dual screen DVD players for your car / van, except this model does not come with a video game unit. The unit is OK, but it seems the concept of "quality electronic workmanship" (we're definitely not talking about IPC-A-610 Class C - highest electronic workmanship standards) typically isn't a philosophy associated most Polaroid electronics - so buyer beware (this is my second unit I've purchased within two years, so I...
Summary: MY SON WAS HAPPY TO RECEIVE THIS DVD PLAYER BUT IT DID NOT FIT ON OUR HEAD RESTS IN OUR CAR. HE HAD TO HOLD ONE AND HIS SISTER HELD THE OTHER WHILE TRAVELING TO FLORIDA. WORKS GOOD, SOME WIRES-KIDS PLUGGED IN AS NEEDED. THE KIDS USED STANDARD EAR PHONES WHEN THE PARENTS WANTED QUIET TIMES WHILE TRAVELING. HAS A BASE TO PUT IT ON WHEN NOT ATTACHED TO THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD REST. THEY HAD IT PROPPED ON OUR COOLER WHEN THEY ALL WANTED TO WATCH THE MOVIE.
