I purchased these DVD's for my car to entertain the children while on the way to vacation. The picture is very clear. They are easy to install and uninstall. With a van, I was able to fix one to the back of the driver's headrest and one in row three of the van. I did have to purchase ear phones but I bought cheap ones at a discount store. Even over bumps and mountains these things were great. They worked great in the hotel when it was raining and I didn't have to purchase hotel movies. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of buying the pair for their vehicle. Great value for a great item.
I love the fact that my kids can watch two different movies at the same timeor they can watch the same one together. They are compact and do not get in the way of kids getting in and out of the car. Well worth the money and really are not that expensive.
Just purchased these a few weeks ago. We driving down to Florida this summer, so this is why I purchased them. I have 2 girls and I really needed to be able to play 2 different movies at a time. We've already tried them out twice and they're GREAT! I love them! My girls are 5 & 7 years old and they can easily control the players themselves. The picture & sound quality are great too. I'm so pleased with this product and would highly recommend them to anyone!
Awesome picture quality, very simple to use, and an overall great bang for the buck. My only issue was it does not work with wireless headphones. So the kids will have to deal with the cord. It's pretty rough nowadays.
After trying many portable DVD players we are sticking with this Philips. This is the only portable we've found that the volume was loud enough that we could hear OK while using the external speakers. Really not that loud but much better than the rest.
Also portable DVD players from all manufactures don't last long before they fail. We have been through several players from several different manufactures. We don't abuse the players they are attached to the back of the headrest so it's not like they are being kicked around or abused. Since the players don't last it's important to stick with a company with good customer service and without a doubt that is Philips. Several of our players failed within the one year warranty period and Philips was extremely helpful and easy with the warranty replacement. Sylvania had the worst customer service by far when it came to warranty replacement.
Stay away from the dvd REFURBISHED players. We had terrible luck with the refurbs. Also they only come with a 30 to 90 day warranty instead of the one year that a new unit comes with. Philips isn't the cheapest brand but in this case spend a little extra and get the better quality and better customer service. Hope this helps.
We were happily surprised to see how much our children, 5,7, would appreciate being able to watch their own films at the same time! Easy to set up, automatic restart is also a great benefit. Best ever is that these dvds can be made region-free and we have dvds bought in usa as well as europe, where we live. This dvds have made our trip time SO easy!
I bought these when we took are grand kids on vacation,They worked great, no trouble what so ever. I was wondering how a remote could make them better? as some of the other reviewers said it would. A remote would just make it cost more.Their easy to set up, easy to use insert disc and push play. Hours of trouble free driving, give them head phone and you can hear your audio books or? If your going on a trip and want some quality entertainment for your kids with out paying the big bucks this is it.
Just be aware of the real product is not as attractive & slim/thin looking as Philips's images on their website.
I got my shipment and it's all black plastic frame in glossy finish, and they are quite thick too. I believe on their website (as dated 26-23-2011), the image shows a chrome accents trim around the black frame of the screen. And the image shows two players behind car headrest in the isometric angle definitely been photo shopped to present the slim fit feel of them. It only showing the front panel screen been strapped, the actual back part that housing the mechanism and DVD disc has been totally eliminated from the picture.
I am strongly suggesting to check the product at store before you buying it, don't want you to be misled by the way it looked on the product's official site. Otherwise it works fine.
Bought this pair of portable players for my 4 year old grandaughter. Larger screen than the last ones we had. Best feature allows the movie to pick up where you left off, once back in the car.
Other players started over each time you are in and out of the car. Fewer cords also make it easier to navigate inside the car. So far, they are well worth the cost.
Love the options on the dvds as either the same or double movie. Just wish the car charger came with a 2nd one as so that we can split them up amongst 2 cars.
I think they work great, easy to use, and the screen is the perfect size. No problems!
2 different movies at same time is the selling point, picture quality is very good. Nice product good price for 2 cheaper than buying individually. Can't get the larger screen size if purchased separately.
Perfect for portability between cars. We have several cars and really only use 1 at this time and just switch from car to car. We can also use in the house or in a hotel room. Not battery operated is only downside.
I did some research and found this one to suit our needs. The screens are big and strap to your headrest. You are able to play two different or one movie on both monitors. This item saved us during our vaction. We played them sometime for 10 hours at a time. The only difficulty I had was the screen froze a couple of times. I think we had it on so long maybe it over heated. Im not sure though. My only other gripe is you have cords going everywhere. I would buy it again. If your a parent of toddlers you will do most anything to provide peace, and Im a mother of 3 yr old twins. It was a life saver. I did get the protection plan just in case my screens do fail.
This product is easy to use. I love the option of watching one movie on both screens or watching two separate movies if desired. My 2yr old daughter loves it! I think the price is a little high, but the over all quality is good.
I spent alot of time reviewing dvd's for the car for my granddaughter & this one had good reviews. Unfortunately, this is defective. My GD drives with her mom over 1 hour each way to work & I got her a bunch of DVD's with this to help her pass the time. This kept skipping & then shutting off by itself leaving my d-i-l with a screaming 2 year old on the turnpike. We will be returning this to the store.
I bought this to use with my 3 year old son, he loves it and so do I!! Easy to use and set up, and I love the fact that you can watch 2 different dvds at the same time. Went on an out of town trip with the family and he was watching cartoons on his and I was using the other. Great product!!!!
I was looking for a way for my kids, ages 3 and 5, to watch movies in the car on trips without spending $1000 on a ceiling install, and found these. I love it because they can watch two different movies at the same time, so there's no fighting over what we're watching! (you have to make a separate purchase of headphones) Also, it means I get to listen to whatever I want to on the radio. It was super-easy to install - I was able to do it on my own on my lunch break. I surprised the kids with it when I picked them up from the babysitter's in the evening. They love it! Although they do want to watch it even on short trips, like running errands, but I don't mind - I kinda enjoy the peace and quiet!
These dvd players have been awesome to have in the car. the kids are no so happy and quiet instead of yelling and fighting! I also love that they can be plugged into the wall and used in a hotel room for the kids. It is great that they can watch the same dvd or a different one if they would like. We are so happy with this purchase.
These DVD players were great for my daughters. They could watch separate movies or the same one. Made our 12 hour driving days much more bearable.
